Homeware Lust List

I can lose hours poring over pictures of beautiful homes and the gorgeous things that fill them but I know what I like and tend to be drawn to modern country and slightly bohemian or shabby chic looks.
When we bought our 150 year old farmhouse cottage, that had been renovated a few years ago, we wanted to take our time to live in it and get used to its quirks and charms before doing major work.

When we bought it we had major plans for overhauling the decor and structure but after a while it just became home. Some of the changes that we thought we wanted we now realise may be wrong for the house or impractical for us living here day in and day out. There are still some things we want to do but tackling renovations should always be well thought through before jumping in headlong.

For now the way I like to update the house and keep things fresh is by buying furniture and knick knacks. With recent expenses like weddings and travel, we haven't had a major splurge in a while and I'm feeling that familiar itch to buy, which is always dangerous!

We bought a lot of big items when we first moved in, like our beautiful coach-house four poster bed, rustic dining table and kitchen island, all of which we had made especially to fit our house and style.
There are still spaces in our home in need of filling with furniture and I'm currently loving the new living range from Victoria Plum. Unsurprisingly I was drawn towards my signature modern country style, with farrow and ball style paints and rustic wood.

I love the muted grey/green colours and utilitarian style that go with this style that remind me so much of Downton Abbey, which I recently visited and really must tell you about soon!

My favourite piece of the new range is this gorgeous settle which would look perfect in our hallway. I love that it's practical, offering storage for shoes, scarves and pet paraphernalia but also stylish and in keeping with our home. Isn't it beautiful?!
Here's the rest of my lust list from the new range. It all has a very modern country cottage feel but the chest of drawers is a bit of departure from my usual style. I love the rustic charm and character it brings and it would look great in my smallest bedroom to add some texture and colour.

What is your go to furniture range? Are there any of these pieces you'd like to own?
