Next Home Haul


You know how I've mentioned before that I started buying my Christmas presents back in August/September? Well that's nothing, over the past few months I've been making wishlists and making the odd purchase for my house. The house that we haven't found yet, and probably won't even start our hunt for until late 2013/early 2014..
I love buying ahead, I don't know why, to be honest I'm surprised I haven't bought anything for my wedding yet (I do however have an ever growing Pinterest board). Since I had a voucher for Next I thought I'd indulge my homeware cravings with some beautiful things. My mum's pretty much used Next to decorate her whole house, and I love the things she's picked up! 
After about half an hour wandering round squeezing and cuddling various cushions, I decided on these giant faux fur cushions. They're neutral so they'll go with most things, (although we already have our colour schemes / sofa choices already thought out!), but more importantly, they're perfect for using now to make the flat more Christmassy! Due to the fact that our flat is pretty small we have to be a bit inventive with Christmas Decorations, there's no room for a tree or anything like that. I love the fact that these cushions can be used for years because they could easily be used in your living room, conservatory, bedroom etc., also I don't think you need to worry about matching them as they're quite a statement!
I also picked up a gorgeous glittery knitted stag, who coordinates lovely with the cushions. This is my favourite type of Christmas decoration, and there's so many more cute ones, I think I'm going to have to go back and pick up this little birdy. We've named him Reginald the Reindeer, and he can sit/stand in loads of different positions, because he has bendy wire in his limbs.
I'm hoping to post quite a few more home posts, because it's something I'm really interested in. I'm already planning a mini haul with some bits I've ordered recently, along with a few things I'm considering ordering from my Amazon wishlist.
Is this something you'd like to see more of? Are you a fan on Next's homeware too?
