My Spring Home Wishlist & Why I Want a Garden Room

Hello lovelies! I know it’s not quite Spring yet, at least real proper Spring, but fingers crossed that Spring will creep upon us sooner than you can take off your Winter coat. I for one, have commenced with my Spring cleaning and have been getting rid of as much clutter as I can. And as the saying goes, out with the old and in with the new.

I’m quite desperate for Spring this year you see, and a big part of Spring is about making small improvements. There’s nothing better than updating your home with a few lovely new bits to get you ready for the season. Of course, when the skies are still grey out all you want to do is inject a bit of colour to make your home bright and ready to welcome the season.

I don’t want to do a complete interior overhaul with my Spring home wishlist. But I do want to add some bits and pieces that I think will not only complement my home, but also serve a different function if I ever want to put them in any other room in the house.

There is one big exception too this though!

The Outdoors

This year, it’s also the outdoors that I’m focusing on. And who can blame me, with the amount of time we have spent indoors in the last few months?  

One thing that has occurred to me recently is that I really want a room in my garden! I love the idea of having an outside room where I can go and chill. We all need time to ourselves and having my own space is very important to my mental and emotional health.

With this in mind, I’ve been planning how to get my first garden room installed and the research itself has been pretty exciting. So imagine how I’m going to feel when it’s actually in my garden!

I’ve decided that my garden room doubling up as a home office is going to make me more productive. I have become rather too used to working in the same space at home and my writing has definitely suffered. Working at home but not actually inside my home as it were is a pretty exciting prospect! 

I also want to have a small pink and white sofa in my garden room where I can laze. Iced tea and snacks in the warmer months come to mind! And finally, an easily portable dark wood table which I can use in my garden room as well as the garden itself. Light lunches, board games with my family and a nice afternoon nap at the weekend are just some of the ideas that make a garden room so appealing.

Back Indoors

Moving back inside the house, I’m a cat lady. So adding a touch of feline-inspired decor was certainly something that I have been wanting to do. When I came across an absolutely gorgeous cat cushion, I knew it would have to go in my bedroom, either on my comfy leather chair, or my bed.

What’s a pillow without a throw you ask, and I couldn’t agree more. A great bedding throwfind is not only a perfect companion to the cushion, but screams cosy and soft.  I absolutely love how soft a quality throw looks, and it gives my bed a touch of luxury.

I don’t like undoing my bed during the day. So a throw will work for those days when you just want to curl up and watch some TV. 

I love the simple and clean feel that white exudes, and have been a fan of white linens and duvets for as long as I can remember. I normally keep the basics white as snow. But when I added an absolutely lovely decorative filigree glass dome to my wishlist. I still don’t know what I would store in the dome, but it’s far too lovely to not own! 

One of my favourite things to do with home decor, aside from being able to redecorate with items that I’ve had elsewhere in my home, is to repurpose items. This Retro Treats vintage style treat jar would be a lovely dressing table addition, and would look sweet as candy filled with lipglosses, mini nail polishes, or even to store and display your beauty and perfume samples. In fact, you can fill it with just about anything!

Lastly, it wouldn’t be a Spring home wishlist without flowers, and even though I prefer going for real flowers, this lush Faux Fuschia Peony arrangement is well, lush.

What’s on your Spring home wishlist?
