Having just enjoyed a week off of work, with no real agenda, it gave me the time to dedicate some attention to a few home updates. As much as I love being a social butterfly 98% of the time I have to say there is no better feeling than walking through the door to a home that you love, kicking off the shoes and heading upstairs to snooze in a big beautiful bed. Ah, bliss!
I’ve been favouring a bedroom hang-out over a sofa one lately. There’s just something about curling up in bed with a good book and a much needed evening tipple (a big barrel of wine) after a hard going Monday. With this in mind, I wanted to give my snoozing space a little makeover. Styling a house can be a big job and I find it easier to focus on little areas one at a time. I’m often changing things up at home, I like to move things about and try them in new spaces or just generally splurge on a few new pieces. If you’re in need of a little interior inspiration then look no further, I’ve listed below my top five homeware buys that will instantly shake things up in the décor department!
01. fresh flowers
The cheapest and quickest way to brighten up a space is with fresh flowers. Nothing says Pinterest worthy photo opportunity than a big bunch of blush peonies! I’m into white roses mixed with eucalyptus at the moment, very classic and very pretty. It’s a subtle touch but oh so effective!
02. soft furnishing
A bed is not a bed without a big ol’ throw slung over it, right? If you want to create a cosy space then using cushions and throws to do so is the obvious choice. They’re super snuggly and if you can find some pretty patterned cushions to pair against white bedding this will give a brand new look without having to splash the cash.
I often use coasters to add a little something-something to this space. I have a set of chunky marble ones that not only look great out on display, they’re of course functional too, ready to rest a big mug of hot coffee.
Jo Malone, Diptyque, The White Company… take your pick? All offering sweetly smelling candles! The more the merrier, lining up a bundle of candles always looks so lovely.
My favourite of them all, I have to say I do love a print! Who doesn’t? If you’d like to get your hands on this gorgeous LOVE print then keep reading!
