you know when you come across a shop, online or real, and you spend ages looking through everything and imagining it in your home? that just happened to me with horne. queue dreamy sigh and daydreams about my perfect home and wanting to decorate other peoples homes.
they have a lot of midcentury inspired items, which is very much my thing. i was actually quite surprised to learn this shop is based in philedelphia!
there’s so so many things here that i’d love in my home, so i couldn’t resist making a wishlist.
1// geo/metric 1 canvas pillow 2// bora da pillow 3// otto fan 4// formosa perpetual wall calendar 5// farmhouse chair 6// walnut side bar
do you have a favourite item from the shop? i think my favourites are the fan, the chair and the sidebar. i really don’t know why, but i really like the design of some vintage (or vintage inspired) fans. like this one i found via pinterest. i don’t know if it’s just the shape of them, or the colours ..i don’t know, but something about them really interests me. i love, LOVE 50’s desks too.
scandinavian style homes, who loves them? i do!
often with crisp white walls, a mix of midcentury and modern furniture and lovely accessories sprinkled around, all with a minimal colour scheme. though i’ve noticed that, as well as the usual monochrome of course, red, blues/teal, and yellows seem to dominate when it comes to colour.
i discovered northlight a couple weeks ago & wanted to share their goods with you! as an added bonus if you’re a fan of the moomins, they have a whole section of moomin goodies. did you watch the moomins when you were little? i kind of want everything.
i had a good look through the site and wanted to share some of my favourite items with you.
top// amanda latte cup, littlephant messenger bag, mizu pink fleece blanket
bottom// running moomin tray, cosmos turquoise candlestick, black waves cushion
let me know your favourites too!
the whole ‘etsy edition’ wasn’t a planned thing, when i was looking around for white items that i actually liked or loved, almost all of them were from etsy, so i thought why not have them all from etsy? you can see the previous colours here. i also didn’t realise until after i put all the images together, but all of the second lot are ceramic things. woohoo!
as i’m more of a colourful person, i generally don’t go for white items when i’m buying things for myself or the home. i like white walls, and a minimal look, but in my own home i’m always drawn to items that have colour or texture to them. saying that, i love all the items i’ve chosen and would happily have them in my home or on my person. i wouldn’t be doing this if i didn’t love or at least really, really like the items i’d chosen.
i don’t like the idea of people/blogs doing this sort of post purely for the views or anything that may come from it. do, write, make things that you have a passion for! it really shows.
1// bunny hairband 2// whale tissue holder 3// cloud cushion 4// cat brooch 5// 50’s dress
» isn’t this adorable? would be great for a child to wear for a party or informal gathering.
» i sneeze A LOT so a cute little tissue dispenser like this would be great. also, a have a fondness for whales so double win!
» i’ve liked this cloud cushion for quite some time now. a sweet cushion like this would be the perfect thing to put a little smile on your face on those dull days.
» two things i love a lot are cats, and brooches. this is a brooch with a cat. guess how i feel about it?
» you know how big i am of 50’s style i am by now, right? this would be such a lovely summer dress.
1// unicorn glitter dispenser 2// bone china rings 3// pendant light 4// porcelain dairy bottles
» when i came across this earlier, i was thinking ..where have i seen this cute little unicorn before? then i remembered; on one of laura manfre’s cards which you can see here.
» i am quite a fan of minimal, dainty jewellery and these rings definitely fit that bill. i feel like they’d be really nice to touch too.
» seriously wanting this lamp. the simple colours really pop.
» definitely a fan of a nice ‘vessel’. these are a nice change from glass bottles, and would look beautiful with one or two flowers, or just as they are.
