Cheating on Fashion with Furniture • £100 Wayfair Giveaway [Closed]

August 27, 2014

Last week I re-watched Sex and the City 2 and just couldn’t take my eyes off – no not the fashion – the furniture! Rich textiles, stunning chairs, and that heavenly wardrobe. At the beginning of the film Carrie jokes “I’ve been cheating on Fashion with Furniture” and if I’m being honest, I feel like doing a little cheating myself…

I’ve definitely found that as I’ve gotten older my interest in interior and home furnishings has gone from insignificantly tiny, to wild and passionate. I’m not a homeowner, but I do rent a little studio with the Beard and I just love making it look pretty and adding to it. I’m always browsing websites looking for more things, from storage units and cute chairs to fairy lights and plant pots. So I was overjoyed when I heard about

Wayfair offer so much; their tagline is ‘a zillion things home’ (and they probably mean that literally). I spent some time way too long looking at their site and fell in-love multiple times with multiple items (turns out I’m a bit of a furniture slut) but the one item that I could definitely see myself in a long term relationship with is the striped Louis Armchair by designer Derry’s (pictured above). It’s so beautiful. It’s a little more than I would normally pay for a chair at £163, but I would certainly cherish it, and with my flat being quite modern, I think it would give it a nice Vintage twist. contacted me not only to let me know about their site but also to set me a little challenge. They asked me ‘If you had a £100 voucher to spend on, what would you buy?’ Well, the easy answer would be to chuck £63 on top of their £100 and I’d have myself a beautiful chair. Sigh. But that’s not a very good blogger response to a challenge. So instead I put together this wish list of exactly how I would spend £100. Inspired by the chair, I’ve gone for a bit of vintage theme, and I’m loving these four pieces…

wayfair wish list


1) I love this Wall Mirror by designer Ian Snow, it reminds of something out of a fairtytale – £16.75 view here
2) I’d love to have this padded memo board above my blogging station, I’m forever losing post-it notes or press releases, it would be so handy, and look so pretty  – £20.15 view here
3) I adore this GPO push button telephone, I always wanted a phone like this. Wayfair offer a variety of colours and styles, but I just loved this one. This one even comes with a pull-out message pad – £47.29 view here
4) I’d love to hang this KEEP CALM AND CARRY ON vintage looking plaque in my kitchen – £22 view here

Okay, so I still technically failed and overspent by £6.29, but I couldn’t help it, I want all of these pieces (and the chair).
