I hope you’ll recovered from your New Years hangovers and have got rid of all the leftover meat and sweets! I find it a little heart breaking removing all the decorations though – it’s stark and bare without the twinkling fairy lights all around and the centrepiece that is the Christmas Tree. I took mine down this week but was planning before then ways to fill the void my tree left. We have a hallway to our house but it is extremely small, so to fill the gap in the lounge, I decided to create a little entryway and I have to say, I absolutely love it.
I knew partly how I was going to style it – we were bought this beautiful picture frame for Christmas, filled with a special moment from our wedding day. We had just gone for a drive around Mollington village in the Rolls after saying our vows, and when we arrived back, we were greeted by our 5 year old page boy, who proudly said “Welcome back to the universe!”. It made us laugh for ages at how cute it was and also how apt – the day felt out of this world.
I spotted the lamp in Home Bargains and fell in love instantly. It still felt vintage, which is a style I love, but it also felt elegant and chic. I picked up two at £14.99 each and put the other on our French desk. I added a diffuser so that it smells welcoming when you enter. The rustic picture frames on the wall were from B&Ms for £2.99 each.
Kieran and I love snuggling up under a soft blanket of an evening with a film and a drink, but we have so many I’ve run out of places to put them. I picked up this basket from Home Sense for £9.99 which I considered a bargain for the size. I absolutely love shopping there and would say it’s definitely my go to place for inspiration and home treasures, alongside T K MAXX. I paired it with this beautiful silver lantern which was a gift from Kieran, and a Yankee Candle that we got for our wedding day.
My final bargain was the table itself which I spotted whilst dropping some things off at our local charity shop. We often drop off things there and get unique items for our house. It was an absolute steal at £14.99!
So that concludes our entry space…for now! I can imagine it’s probably going to change over the coming months as I decorate our home for spring, but for now, it is beautifully filling the void left by Christmas. Now I need to sort out everywhere else!
