The Muddy house updated

I am usually the great proscrastinator when it comes to interiors. Sometimes the indecision is related to the cost – sofas, for example, are a nightmare and can only be attempted as new purchases once every ten years for fear of totally doing my head in – but other times it can just be the feeling that my potential purchase has such longevity that I must research all possible angles. Like, forever.

Last weekend I bucked that trend, due mainly to everything being rather conveniently in one place at Vinegar Hill in Henley (or online if you’re not nearby). Plus, I’m still a bit stingey post-Xmas, and the price was right So I came away with new cushions and a throw, home accessories and even kitcheny stuff, which I never ever ever get around to buying.

Pleased to have an injection of colour in what was becoming a very grey, tasteful but possibly slightly dull palette of cushions.


Sea cushions, £29.50, throw Oline £32.50, footed bowl Miel in red, was £42.99, now £12.89.



Glass tealight holder, £3.99 each.


Stoneware jar, was £16.99, now £5.09



Fuel break at Muddy HQ. Cupcakes stolen from mudlets, but you know, they got over it. Jug in peach, £18.99, drinking glasses in peach, £4.99 each; Plate (assorted sizes) 15cm – £2.50, 18cm – £2.99, 22cm – £3.50.



These pretty glass plates actually come in three sizes so you can kind of ‘stack them’

Unfortunately my purse wasn’t wearing its elasticated pants so I couldn’t reach in to grab the credit card for this lot below, but I did take some snaps to remind me for next time. I’m particularly taken with the big paper pom poms. No idea where I’d put them – let’s just put it in the emotional purchase box!

Bowls (stacked), £xx each; paper pompoms £xx; lace glasses £xx

Hand-painted terracotta assorted bowls (stacked), £4.99 each; milk jugs, £12.50 each; big milk jug Nordic sand,  £24.99, Truly Scrumptious paper lantern, £9.50 each; vase Nici, £4.50 each.
