Autumn Home Updates.

HELLO THERE! Firstly, thanks for coming back regardless of my absolutely appalling efforts to blog over the past few months - more on that in another post. Secondly, I have still been reading blogs despite being mia over here, and interior posts have absolutely become one of my favourite types of post to read. With that I thought what better way to ease myself back in that write my own!

Furnishing our home has been a slow and steady process, we didn't jump into all of the big purchases straight away, we wanted to live in the space first to get more of a feel of what we needed. With the change in season it's inspired a few new purchases and a couple of spaces have had a little makeover. I have to say, I'm feeling pretty pleased with how it's all coming together.

Some new prints
If you're a regular reader you'll know I'm a huge fan of Desenio. They have a massive selection of prints and frames with so many different sizes and themes. For our living room we've created a little cosy corner (My vision was having a little place to sit under a blanket and read a book/ watch a YouTube video). We went for oak frames with the Antibes and Figuratone poster in the 50x70 size, and they really do just complete the whole set up.
I've also updated the prints in our bedroom that sit on top of our IKEA MALM draws. I was about to say we, but these were definitely two prints my husband didn't have much say in as I loved them so much *sorry Jay*. I just love how simple they are yet again it's a space that looks much more put together just by having them there. I went for the gold frames and the prints are Flower Lines No1 and Flower Lines No2. 

The lovely Desenio team have given me a discount code to give to you guys if you're interested in purchasing anything from the site:
“The code “JODIE.MELISSA” gives 25% off posters*. Valid between November 6th and 8th. 
*Except for frames and  handpicked-/collaboration posters". 
The new chair and accessories 
If you saw my IKEA haul you'll know we finally decided on a chair for our living room. I was toying with the idea of going for a deep blue fabric but finding the perfect one that was still fairly affordable was actually impossible. Now I'm glad we went for something a little more neutral, I love the mid century style of the legs and it compliments our other furniture well too. I've settled with some deep blue accessories instead, these blue cushion covers and a throw  to match also from IKEA. The deep shade of blue just works so well with brass accessories and grey, then if I do end up going off it I can just switch up the accessories in the future.

The finer details 
I really wanted to find some brass photo frames to display some of our wedding photos I found these in Homesense *the mothership* and they're perfect! We finally have a coffee machine coming too *finally* so we picked up cups and saucers from the Fox & Ivy range at Tesco. Honestly I do the majority of my food shop at Aldi - who doesn't?! But I do love quickly popping into Tesco (or Sainsburys come to mention it) for a quick browse because they have some seriously nice homeware bits.

Have you picked up any new homeware bits for Autumn?
