I've been needing to look for a lot of storage lately, and while a trip to IKEA isn't quite near I've had to have a look around my local town. I've made a list of things I want and ideas where to find it. Usually I will lust after something for ages but then forget to look and most of the time it takes some searching. I'm planning to get a bookcase at the end of the month but I don't have many books. I wish I did. That in mind I'm looking for pretty things to go on it. I want to organise it with piles of books, ornaments and photo frames. Really want to mix it up a little. The plum lidded pot is something that I've been wanting for so long. I keep finding ones but they come in bright colours such as pink and purple. Although, I am looking to add some colour in my house (my boyfriends words) I didn't want it to be included in the Plum pot. I saw this one and knew it was perfect. Look's so much more expensive than what it was.
The weave baskets are something I have only been looking for since last week. I think I stumbled upon them on a interior website when looking for types of storage. I love the white weave baskets you can get but again (my boyfriends words) I have so many white things already. These fit perfectly in my living room, although I've decided to use the small one on my dressing table to store my every day makeup. I said in a previous post about my MUJI storage not being able to go on a shelf. So they are on top of the chest of drawers. Well now I can put my everyday makeup in this basket and then in the morning decide what I need to put in my makeup bag to carry in my handbag. This way I won't end up with a dressing table full of makeup. Although, many of you said that it was nice clutter. Storage is something I'm definitely lacking.
