As we’ve recently just moved we’re still making additions here and there to our bedroom. Everyone wants a little haven to escape to and we’ve got plenty of white walls and little nooks to play with. We’ve decided to tackle one little corner of the room and create a botanical spot to display our nik-naks – our take on a cabinet of curosities, if you will. Who better to turn to then online homewares brand, Cox & Cox.

When deciding what to do with our corner we knew we wanted to create a little shelving area to display a collection of accessories we’ve collected over the years. Cox & Cox has such an extensive collection of eclectic homewares and accessories. From larger pieces of furniture and storage through to soft furnishings, rugs and lighting, we had lots of fun online shopping and finding inspiration for updating our bedroom. It was a wire wall rack however that ticked all the right boxes for us.

Styled up with a few of our favourite decorative pieces, the shelving is the perfect way to add an industrial look to a space and at £70, it’s a steal.

We opted for a botanical/nautical theme using some of our favourite keepsakes, books and plants.

*For full details of what’s on our shelves, see the bottom of the post.

To finish the look, we couldn’t resist this faux fern. We’ve mentioned before how we’re not the most green-fingered of couples so fake it all the way, we say! The leaves of this fern can be tugged and twisted so you can get your desired shape. It also comes with a concrete pot which we love and is the perfect fit for the industrial look we wanted to add.

Feeling inspired? Here’s an edit of our favourite pieces currently available from Cox & Cox…

1. Grey & copper industrial pendant, £100 2. Feather illustration print, £40 3. Ingo block rug, £375 4. Wooden ladder shelf, £195 5. Ankur desk lamp, £65 6. Concrete potted faux hydrangea, £40 7. Concrete potted faux grass, £35 8. Alpaca wool cushion, £60 9. Two grey hammered metal chairs, £140


A little addition that makes a big difference, we’re thrilled with our cage shelving. If you’re inspired to do something similar, or perhaps you’re simply looking for a new interiors destination, then Cox & Cox is the one for you.
