A little bit of tartan…finally!

Remember my post when I said the Mr didn’t want any print of the sort in the house? Well, it seems that if it is free, even he can’t complain. Thanks to a lovely grandparent, we are now the proud owners of a lovely, wool throw, printed with a great red and grey tartan. Great for curling up under after a day at work, especially given that our front room radiator refuses to warm up completely (we even had to learn to bleed the thing with no success in solving the problem!).




The fact that this is a sort of inheritance makes this piece even better and goes with my aim of styling the house up for as little money as possible – especially since we decided to move house three months before Christmas (not the smartest move financially!).

I am loving all things tartan in interiors at the moment, and it seems that the trend is set to stay around for a good few months yet, with a refreshing lighter tone style for Spring/Summer 2014.

I really like these items on sale now, but I have a feeling, a tartan throw might be as far as I can push this one…
