So that's where the dreaming comes in. Spending evenings browsing Pinterest, BHS lighting sections and new interiors sites has made me realise - there are a lot of good interiors websites out there.
Okay, it's probably already on everyone else's radar but why hadn't I really known about it before? It's kind of like a marketplace website but with really chicly edited, curated stores - like Holly's House, Bloomingville, Tom Dixon etc. They sell other stuff too, womenswear, kids and magazines etc but it's homewares where I really get distracted...

Now I can't actually be held responsible for finding this gem, my sister (who actually has far better taste than me in interiors) pointed this store out on Instagram. So chic, effortless - that raw edge minimalism I've spoken about here. The site is simple yet dreamy with the perfect pom pom edge bathmat, the must-have Hammam towels and beautiful apothecary products (gift giving dilemmas forever sorted).

And then lastly (I know, I said 3, and this is kind of a 4th brand), La Redoute is back on my radar for homewares. Once again, Erica Davies has beat me to it with her kilim style rug and then Lindsey from Ropes of Holland has an amazing retro desk I've been eyeing up, and this marble console table is just what I'm looking for our hallway:
