COPPER + GREY

 
INTERIOR. I love this colour combination - pinky copper mixed with grey. It makes for such a trendy and contemporary style. If the grey comes in the form of some bare concrete or slate that's even better, I love the rough luxe look when it's combined with more expensive materials such as silk and faux fur. 
 
I think grey is a great colour to have as a base in most rooms, as it is easy to update and very versatile. Accessories and fabrics are relatively easy and inexpensive to replace depending on trends and season. I'm currently going for a dark grey and dark blue in our bedroom, with golden details. I'm also looking for some natural materials, such as wood, to incorporate, potentially in the shape of bedside tables and/or shelves.

INSPIRATION /MAKEUP STORAGE

 
ACRYLIC. One of the things I struggle with is somewhere to keep all of my makeup. When I used to live at home and on my own, I could always spread out and dedicate whole areas to beauty (which was fantastic!) but when living with my boyfriend in a smaller flat that's not really an option any more. 
 
I have a perfect little corner in our bedroom, right by the window so that I get plenty of natural light, but it is small. And the amount of storage is equal to zero. Because of how it's laid out, I can't fit a desk in there meaning I have to sit on the floor. I want to invest in a cushion (much like this one), but I am yet to find one that goes with the rest of the bedroom. 
 
I have most of my makeup in boxes and jars, which keeps it somewhat tidy but isn't very practical. When the boxes are stacked on each other they are a bit of a pain to get out, meaning that a lot of makeup is just stashed away until I feel a little bit creative and go through it all. Muji has some great, clear acrylic storage solution, which I believe I might have to hunt down. It's easy to see and keep track of all of your makeup, it looks super sleek and won't rob your bank. Ticks all the boxes!
 
I love repurposing old candles and jars, which is how I currently keep all my makeup brushes, and I'm really like the bottom right picture and how the solution for the cotton buds. My ones are currently in the clear, boring box they came in, which doesn't look very nice at all. Maybe I should look at a new home for them too. 
 
How do you guys store your makeup? Are you a Muji fan as well or do you have any other creative solutions?

INTERIOR INSPIRATION /URBAN OUTFITTERS

 
UO HOME. My mum is always renovating and redecorating our house. Every school break growing up we would change a room around. Sometimes it would be small changes, like maybe buying a new piece of furniture, and sometimes we would knock down walls. Still to this day I really love interior and decorating, I truly believe that this is what makes a house a home. Since we moved in to where we are living right now, it is even more fun as this is actually our home. Anyone familiar with the London housing scene will know that you often live in house shares with (sometimes) complete strangers, and your contracts can be very short and bloody expensive.
 
But I've done all of that now. I've lived in houses I've hated, most of the time (fortunately) with people I like, and I've chosen to spend my few spare pennies on other things than cushions and bed side tables. Now I live somewhere where I plan on staying for a long time, somewhere I can make mine and somewhere where it feels like home. I'm really taking my time decorating this place though and I only get pieces I really really really like. If there is any hesitation I won't get it. Hence why we now have lived here for almost 6 months and I still don't have a bed side table. 
 
This blog post is a celebration of one of my favourite stores for interior and decoration - Urban Outfitters. They always make my fingers itch because of all the nice things they have. My next pay check will definitely be spent in there.
