Despite writing about lots of lovely things for the home, I’m not actually a massive shopper. Bigger items, I buy with the intention of them lasting almost forever. Smaller, more decorative accessories, while I might pick them up a little more frequently, I still expect them to be more than a passing trend and to have, if possible, multiple uses.
It’s been exactly one year since we moved house. One year since we unpacked our belongings, found temporary homes for everything, and then slowly set about making over each room. The plans were grand. No wall would be left unpainted and no surface would remain in its previous-owner state.
