Home: Items that make my apartment more me/cozy

I thought I’d try something a bit different today & do a post about items I’ve bought for my apartment which I think make it feel a bit more cozy & more me.

I moved out of my family home in Singapore to live in Melbourne, Australia in January 2016. My dad bought the apartment I’m currently living in so it was completely empty when I moved in. We filled the apartment with the essential furnitures & items but over the years I’ve bought a few little things just to make it suit me a bit more & I wanted to share a few of them with you guys.

So the first & probably my favourite is this little tray of items I put on the coffee table. I got the black metal tray from Kmart for like 5 dollars.

I’ve got this white marble coasters that I absolutely love (at least love enough not to have untie it & use them yet)

Next on the tray is my Jo Malone Diffuser in Pomegranate Noir.

& lastly I added a succulent plant I bought at the market & put it in a gold flower pot. They’re great indoor plants & last a really long time. Also they’re perfect for people who forget to water plants (like me) as they don’t require much attention.

Also in my living room I bought this concrete lamp & added a colour changing light bulb on it. Slightly obsessed with this light as I can also adjust the brightness & different modes with the remote.

I’ve got another white marble item & that is my vase which I make sure I always filled with flowers (I try to stick with white flowers just because I like to have a neutral tone theme throughout my apartment)
& I have a white orchid which currently has no flowers on it & I put it in a tin flower pot I bought from Ikea.

I also like to fill my apartment with plenty of scented & tealight candles.

I’ve got an all black L shaped couch & it’s quite plain so I bought a few white cushions & a throw cover I got from Ikea.

This side table next to my couch was pretty much empty so I added a woven basket

First item in my bedroom I added was this industrial shelf which matches the side table in the living room. Which basically holds all my candle, perfumes & the bottom two shelves hold my uni textbooks & other boring stuff.

I’ve always loved matching candles & diffusers so this set is one of my favourite things I’ve purchased, not to mention is smells amazing.

& yeah like I said above, I also put a few of my favourite perfumes on the shelf just so I can easily & quickly spray it when I need to.
P1020160
This is the newest addition but it’s also one of my favourites. This little faux fur rug lays in between my bed & my wardrobe & I just love how it looks.
