Top Finds: 1960’s cushion!

Well today we’ve been looking for those must have fabric cushions. I love anything that is different, or none reproduction. When we came across these fabulous 14 inch 1960 fabric cushion covers you could imagine our excitement!

We thought wow, they’d be perfect for any charcoal/ grey themed room. With a fabulous tree design and finished professionally to the highest of standards, these original 1960’s cushion covers are simply luxurious. With only three of these original retro cushions available, we’re certain these will be snapped up soon. The desirable finish, overlocked seams and zip to the bottom, along with the professional seamstress finish make these cushions one of our favourite accessories.

With a wide variety of wallpapers from the likes of Laura Ashley, Arthouse, Prestigious and so on which would compliment these fantastic retro cushions a treat, these beauties are a steal – and so unique. Available at Johnny Moustache now.

Beach Day shopping spree review

After Going to the beach on Wednesday, which wasn’t really all that in the end due to overcast weather, Kelly and I returned home with lots of goodies for our home.  We had visited various shops looking for specific items such as light shades, ornaments and a new picture frame for my late dog Kato.

I’ve mentioned in the past just how much I love B&M Stores, so when I noticed there was one in Redcar I just had to go in! Its always the same when I go in this shop – I start off carrying a hand basket and soon end up needing a trolley!  Anyhow, after spending around an hour in this store Kelly and I were not disappointed.  Within our trolley we had managed to get a teal light shade, beige vase, beige throw, cream throw, twig lights and a rattan heart for our spare room – all of which look desirable!

For my office I also managed to get a light shade, back support for my computer chair and that all important white picture frame for Kato!  We also bagged ourselves cream leather coasters for our bedside cabinets (perfect for when I have tea and toast in bed) and for our dining table we purchased a mulberry table runner and leather table mats.  Our table actually arrived on Thursday along with our guest room furniture – so Thursday was a day of flat pack DIY!

Can you have too many cushions?

Often, people take the mickey out of me for being so particular when it comes down to ‘arranging’ things. I mean, I may have OCD but does this really contribute to the way I arrange our bedroom cushions – I think it does!

Usually I arrange things in fours, but with these six square cushions (and the round Dorma cushion which Kelly insisted we buy – I must admit mind, Diesel our black cat appreciates it the most!) I find it hard to leave the room without ‘faffing on’ trying to make them look show home standard.

I love the way the cushions incorporate different shades and textures!

The ‘aran jumper’ is back!

I absolutely heart Laura Ashley, they’re furnishings are simply LUXURIOUS! My previous post got me thinking about Laura Ashley, and I just couldn’t resist browsing their sale page.

Currently in the living room, not only do we desperately need the ornate mirror hanging – we also need a variety of cushions and throws for our black corner couch. After browsing the Laura Ashley sale page I have some great ideas for the types of cushions to purchase.

With money quite tight recently, due to the recession and decorating, I will either be browsing the aisle of Wilkinson’s, Matalan and TK Maxx – or simply digging out that aran jumper my granny so kindly knitted me last year, along with the Singer sewing machine, and making my very own knitted cushions.
