Just two months after my minimal new room tour, I’m back with an array of gorgeous ethical furnishings to show you! I’ve been busy selecting new furniture and pretty items to decorate my room with, and here are the results – what do you think?
I’ve broken out my favourite items below to tell you their story and just why I love them so… Plus don’t forget to enter my giveaway!
On my bookshelf
DIY plant pot. Believe it or not, I’ve dabbled with some DIY! This tin plant pot used to have a cabbage rose printed on it and was a pale cream colour, but I painted it white with house paint (I’m not sure you’re supposed to do that…?) and then used my acrylic paints for the grey and black accents.
Nina + Co ceramic mug. I love ceramics. There’s something so calm and satisfying that comes with them, and this mug by British artisanal workshop Nina + Co is the epitome. From the corkscrew handle to the imperfect glaze, it balances delicate and raw at the same time.
Neom Organics candle. I have a small votive from Neom Organics currently sat on my bookshelf. The pastel pink was a bolder choice than normal for me (give me neutrals any day) but it’s really added a pop of joy. The candle is floral scented and made from vegetable wax, which is much cleaner than parraffin.
Cardboard storage boxes. I’ve accumulated a few delightfully matching storage boxes recently, my favourites being recycled cardboard ones from Paperchase. You can get them in varying sizes, my favourite being the shoebox-style ones in small, medium, and large.
On my bed
Wool bedding. Not only is my duvet and pillow set the comfiest I’ve ever had, it’s the most natural too. I have an all season bedding set from The Wool Room, made of natural cotton and stuffed with wool fibres produced in Britain. The set is naturally hypoallergenic, meaning it’s great for my city-induced asthma, and its soft weight means I sleep well at night. Read my full review here.
Cushions galore. To add to the cosy bed, I’ve got two pretty cushions. I love that they contrast from one another too. The square cloud grey cushion is from English company Vextile, made from recycled textiles and organic cotton. Then there’s my oblong cushion from Linen & Stripes, which is handmade to order and made in the UK. This reduces waste and also makes you feel like royalty, having someone make your cushion for you and only you!
Scandi blanket. You’ve probably already seen it in another post, but I can’t get enough of my dove grey ferah blanket from Luks Linen. It’s sold on Buy Me Once because not only is it super well-made, but it has a 20-year fixing guarantee, meaning you can have it darned rather than replace it.
