Living in a rented home means two big things for my husband and me. The first is that I'm constantly scouring property websites, hoping and praying that some day, one day, we'll find a home we can afford. The second is that we often put off buying 'nice' furniture, opting for lower priced pieces which with a view to upgrading as and when we find our first home. But now that I work from home I'm finding myself getting more and more frustrated with 'making do' in our space. So, despite a move being on the cards within the next year or so, I'm beginning to work around the house, room by room, trying to bring in pieces which have longevity and will move with us when the time comes.
When it comes to styling the rest of our living room, my heart is always captured by clean lines, metallic accents, chunky wool textures and oodles of grey. I've had my eye on the angular jug ever since I spotted it in store. It would look lovely sat atop a console table, filled with spring blooms, don't you think?
