which-are-you-wednesday: mugs

I’ve gone through more mugs than I have underwear over the years, because stores continue to churn them out at lightening speed. I think a mug says a lot about who are you.

This ottoman, in all its coloured glory, is the things dreams are made of (if only I didn’t have cats who would take joy in removing every single ball). I love the colour clash that’s going on with this piece – it just works. Continue reading
