So my sink is such that if you put a bar of soap down on it, the soap will very quickly just slide into the bowl. This is extremely irritating, as I then have to put the soap on the counter, which then gets a gross soapy scum on it that I’m constantly cleaning. As such, I am in need of a soap dish. The following post is a result of my internet trawling for one, which somehow became this huge conglomeration of things that mostly are not soap dishes. I present to you, The Giant Edit of Homeware I Want But Can’t Afford.
Small Concrete Bowl with Gold Finish, reduced to £8.99///Silent Fox Rug, £498///Pineapple Taper Holder, £34///Koi Carp Cushion, £25///Harris Tweed Snuggler Sofa, £1649///John Lewis Precious Wall Mirror, £895///
I don’t think I’ve ever loved a sofa so much in my life, and equally, I will never be able to afford that sofa. The rug is also stunning, but so unbelievably out of my price range. Now the koi cushion? I fell in love with it and I can actually afford it! Hurray! It reminds me of the two koi fish in Avatar: The Legend of Aang. Did anybody else watch that when it was on tv? No? Okay then…
Mountain Pillow, £22.25///Big White Cloud Cushion, £42///Nova Rico Globe, £424///Peacock Mug, £12///Scalloped Glass Containers, £8-£20///Lirit Coffee Table, £1400///Petal Serving Board, £68///Denver Blossom Duvet Cover, £55-£85///
Look! I actually found a soap dish that I like! I’d have to get all of the matching containers though but I love cut glass and the colour is just so pretty. Obviously I also need that cushion to bury my head in, and I’ve always wanted a globe. Let me just go and fetch that spare £500 I have somewhere for one.
Curlew Lampshade, £79.95///Pirate Ship Table Lamp, $179///Gold Lined Lampshade in Midnight Blue, £40///Origami Fox Lamp, £36///Lotus Flower Table Lamp, £65///Lightbearer Table Lamp, £498///Memory Balloon Ceiling Light, £155///Retro Tulips Ceramic Table Lamp, £80///
Look I really like lamps okay? I think my favourite is the Curlew lampshade because it’s a little quirky but it wouldn’t look super weird in my home. The creepy hand lamp though? That’s a bit odd even for me. And who spends £500 on a lamp?! It’s weird but I sort of love it.
If they had a double version of that knight duvet it would be on my bed right now. The pug salt and pepper shakers I actually bought but for someone else! The fish teapot scares me a little bit. It looks slightly aggressive. I still want it for all my fish themed tea parties that I definitely have.
So there you go! A whole load of stuff that I really want but will almost certainly never own. And after all that, I still don’t own a soap dish.
