One of the best things about moving into a new house, is getting to decorate it! Except it is also super stressful as well because I want everything done NOW, and it is not possible, ha-ha. To me its all the small things that make a house a home, which is why I was adamant to have our picture frames up on the first weekend that we moved in. I’ve held back on a few bigger items to make room for the little things that really bring the house together, and my favorite store to shop for décor and tableware has definitely been Poetry Stores.
I absolutely love Poetry clothing, and I’ve always drooled over their homeware, but never really had the need to buy it until now. However, once we bought the house and I knew we are moving into our own little home, I started shopping like crazy at Poetry, picking out all of my table wear! I wanted everything to match nicely which is why I prefer to shop at one place for everything, so I started with glassware. I absolutely love these gold ribbed wine glasses, and I got the matching ribbed tall glasses to complete the set. How beautiful are they?
For the plates, I picked white Wonki Wear plates, because you can honestly never go wrong with such a classic! I added the Pret-a-Pot Blom Tapas Bowls to my collection as well because I find them so handy- I use them to serve individual salads, little soups, and tapas. I got it in a few colors (pink and white) and they are available in a variety of shades in store.
And a special note goes out to the all the Poetry Servewear– I honestly have not found anything better than their marble serving boards, beautiful salad serves and their coasters. OBSESSED! I set up recently for a beautiful girl’s brunch, and doesn’t it all just look so pretty? My house really does feel like a home.
To make our lounge feel cozy, I also got some beautiful things to tie it all in together.
Poetry has the best coasters that I have ever seen, and I especially loved this stacked marble set. They also have beautiful seagrass ones, but you know marble has my heart! I also loved this tray when I first saw it, perfect to keep little trinkets in by the coffee table.
Their range of candles and diffusers is insane, I had a hard time picking just a few! I love the look of big, 3 wick candles, with a chalky design, but again they have so many lovely ones to choose from. I went with the lemongrass scent for the diffuser in a simple design, but have my eye on Matisse range, so it won’t be too long before I cave in and get it 😉
Lastly I got a few baskets for my plants, this seagrass one being the latest one. I find them the perfect size for my fiddles(even though they are not growing as nicely as I would like) so I can’t wait to grow my collection more.
Also, here is a cute picture of my cat Bellatrix, because a home is not a home to me, without a few pets! 😊
I hope you like my selection of Poetry Homewear, but of course all of their stuff is so gorgeous, it was hard to just mention a few favourite picks! Make sure to pop by my Instagram(@irinadoman) to win a R500 Poetry Voucher to spoil yourself!
