The Croft Collection at John Lewis

Happy Monday, friends! I trust you all had a peaceful, happy weekend. For us, the house hunt continues - finding the elusive house that we a} like and b} can afford is certainly proving to be trickier than I imagined. Regardless of how long the search takes, and despite still being in our lovely rented flat, my thoughts have very firmly turned towards our new house. Admittedly, I have no clue what it will be like, but that hasn't stopped me building a mental shopping list {and the requisite 'dream home' Pinterest board!} It's good to dream, right? You may have gathered already {from my posts here and of course on Pinterest}, that I am crushing hard on all things Scandi, neutral and pastel. I am big fan of clean and simple design. I'm not keen on fussy details or anything too busy. {With the exception of the odd piece of kitsch, vintage kitchenalia!} So, when I saw the new Croft Collection at John Lewis my heart skipped a beat.

It's everything I love in furniture design and homeware accessories: simple, clean, warm and relaxed. The colour palette is beautifully neutral, without being boring - think gorgeous Farrow and Ball hues of grey and blue, combined with natural wood. The whole collection mixes and matches so well. In the picture above the classic Glendale dining table is accompanied by the Glendale bench, the pew dining chair {I must have this!} and the Cecile dining chair. The result is a relaxed dining area, that looks so welcoming and ready to be lived in. It's the sort of table where crumbs and the odd splodge of jam would fit right in!

Here's another photo of the same furniture pieces in a different room. Please can I live there? That stripped wooden floor, those windows - just gorgeous.

The Croft Collection has furniture and home accessories for all the rooms of your house, although I have a particular soft spot for all the living and dining room furniture and accessories. Here are some of my favourite pieces from the collection that are now high up on my wishlist...

1. Dalston wall clock, £80 // 2. Campbell ceiling shade, £30 //  3. Hanging birds, £4 // 4. Berwick armchair, from £700 // 5. Basket weave throw, £70 // 6. Hare cushion, £30

Ah, grey - I do love you so.

What do you think? Which pieces would you pick? I'd love to hear what catches your eye. For more furniture inspiration, John Lewis is always worth a browse! I just can't wait to have a home all of our very own to furnish.
