Home Decor – Spring 2017

Hello lovlies,

Ever since we’ve moved into our new apartment I have taken such an interest into home decor. With Spring on it’s way, I thought there would be no better way to welcome it than to do a blog post on some dream products that I dream to add to my living area. All the items I have written about below are from Arhaus.com – check out their living room page, it’s guarantee to inspire you – https://www.arhaus.com/furniture/living-room-furniture/?icn=main-living&ici=nav-living

From my wardrobe full of clothes to my make up looks, I love monochrome and I think that when it comes to home decor, monochrome looks very classy and on trend. However, I have an incredibly bubbly personality and I like that to reflect in my home decor for when my friends and family come over. See below for my top picks from Arhaus.com, following my dream of monochrome, with pops of colour.

I think this sofa is my favourite product I’ve added to this post. Not only is it the most gorgeous peachy pink colour – it’s also a crushed velvet material and that texture really adds something extra to the room.

Another trend that I am loving is metals. Any metal from copper to gold, however it is important that you stick to one metal in a room, if you have silver, copper and gold all in one room it can look really strange. This table is perfect, it fits in so nice with the sofa and brings a touch of contemporary to the room.

I believe that what really makes a house a home, is wall art. Now these won’t be to everyones taste however I have completely fallen in love with these gorgeous art pieces. They really mix in well with the monochrome trend, yet are just mesmerising to look at.

Finally – this candle is so up my street, I have a very similar ornament to this at home and it is a piece that everyone comments on when they walk through the door, it is such a unique piece and adds a bit of grunge to the decor.

WE’VE BOUGHT OUR FIRST HOME TOGETHER..

Hello beautiful people,

I’m sure the heading explains a lot, but this is the main reason I’ve been pretty AWOL the last couple of weeks. Me and Jake are officially home owners and have purchased our first home together.

It’s a new build property and it isn’t scheduled to be completed until September/October, however today we have exchanged contracts and are now legally bind. The past month or so has been super busy, we’ve been making soooooo may adult decisions from choosing kitchen interior and tiling to arranging signatures on forms for solicitors. Working weekdays has meant that my usual down time at the weekends has been taken over by adult arrangements but it has been SO worth it.

I am so grateful that we’ve been able to buy our first home together, especially before our wedding next May. Having a fiance working for Ikea is a little too convenient  when it comes to purchasing a property and I am LOVING creating a loooonnngggg shopping list on the website.

This is the main reasons I wanted to start blogging, to document special moments. I just never believed they would all come so close to each other!

If any of you have any modern room inspo then PLEASE help a girl out.

Tori Moore xoxo

A few of my favourite things: April

Hey beauties,

It’s bank holiday Monday and that time again so check out my favourites from the past month:

1. Helen Anderson’s vlogs

I love watching vlogs on youtube and recently I’ve been a daily watcher of Helen Anderson’s. She is actually from my hometown Norwich, England and we share a few mutual friends. Her vlogs are my idea of a perfect length, they usually last anything from 5-15 minutes and I would definitely recommend her to anyone who enjoys alternative, beauty and lifestyle videos.

2. Jo Malone fragrances

These are the only fragrances I’ve used that keep their scent on me all day and they’re such personal and deep fragrances. I own ‘Pomegranate Noir’ which is a dark and fruity fragrance and the new limited edition ‘Nashi Blossom’ scent which is perfect for spring, it’s fruity, fresh and has real hints of citrus in. If you’re ever in a situation where you want a new and different perfume then head straight to Jo Malone, they’re a little pricey but you will NOT be disappointed!

3.The Jungle Book

I really didn’t know what to expect from this film as beforehand I had heard it was much more action based and a couple have people had said that they thought I’d be disappointed. It’s a Disney film and I was willing to take the risk of not liking it, but oh wow I was DEFINITELY not disappointed! It still both the classic songs in there and I knew I enjoyed it because I didn’t check the time once, whereas with films I don’t think much of I’m counting down the minutes until it ends. I recommend this film to anyone, although it was a little jumpy for a PG!

 

4. Ikea

This is a really random and weird favourite but my fiancé works in our local Ikea and with the discount he gets I cannot get off their website. They have some really good quality, bespoke options and the new interior theme I want to go for is quite minimalistic and modern so Ikea is perfect for that.

5. Gwen Stefani x Urban Decay lipstick in Firebird

I have never come across a shade like this and it’s so gorgeous. I always used to use safe colours in lipstick until my mum told me to embrace my large lips and to start using more fun colours. This is a bold and bright fuchsia pink with strong blue undertones and a gorgeous shimmer. I’ve worn this a few times and the staying power of this is incredible. It has lasted through hours of drinking, eating and other every day activities. She has other shades so if this isn’t for you then I can guarantee one of them is.

6. Scrunchies

These are so 80’s/90’s but I am really loving them at the moment. My hair is super thick and when I’m working I much prefer it tied up and out of my way. Sometimes a pony tail just looks boring and I want to brighten up my whole look, which is where the scrunchy comes in. The two I use most both have bows on, one just plain black and the other is floral. Primark have an amazing range of them for a couple of £.

 

What have you been loving this month? Thanks for reading,
