Ok so this post becomes mildly irrelevant by tomorrow (please cross fingers and toes) as we complete on our lovely house. But having lived in rented accommodation with fixed decor clauses we’ve had to look at making our own touches without harming any walls.
If you’re in rented accommodation you probably share this issue. To be honest half of me is happy that I’m not having to fill holes as we move out this weekend. But for two years I lived in a flat that didn’t feel like mine aside from the cute touches I made. Although I must admit I super look forward to making the house our own when we have it.
We picked vibrant bed covers for our magnolia room but I went with some cute pillow cases, in fact I have a few now, that I like to switch up for the top pillows. These Big Spoon and Little Spoon pillows are from the Old English Print Co* and add a level of fun to our otherwise boring room in our house!
I’ve also got a big thing for fun mugs. This one* being a particular favourite of mine. I work long days and my commute adds extra hours to it, so I’m usually first to get into PJs when I get in! So whilst I can’t have a jazzy kitchen at least I can have fun kitchenware.
My finishing touches also extend to my own belongings. I’ve started becoming a bit of a pin badge collector. I love this Don’t Worry Bee Happy* pin is so apt. I hate commuting but seeing it when I put my bag on my lap cheers me up!
What do you do to add finishing touches to your house or rented accomodation? Are you a pin badge fan? Let me know in the comments,
