A couple of weeks ago I visited the Ham Yard Hotel in London for the Next summer 2015 press event. I always enjoy going to press previews and getting to see what will be coming into shops a few months in advance, it a definite park of being a blogger and I love getting to meet fellow bloggers too.
I remember when I moved into my very first rented house that wasn’t shared with anyone else, I was 20 at the time and was just about to have Jessica. I moved in armed with my trusty Next directory and ordered lot’s of lovely little bits and pieces for my new home. As the house was rented I couldn’t paint the walls or put much of my own furniture in, but for lovely little accessories that made the house feel like my home I turned to Next. A few years on when we bought our own house I also turned to next for our wallpaper and so Next has found it’s way into my home and my memories of transforming a blank canvas into a happy place.
Being a big fan of Next’s home ranges I thought it only right to dedicate a whole post on the blog to the home collection and my favourite pieces from the press day.
This summer’s interiors are influenced by far away shores, with ranges including Exotic Garden, Country Cottage and Yacht Club. As well as the muted shabby chic tones I usually go for there was also plenty of bright pop of colour and a definite tropical feel. I especially loved all their garden offerings, especially as I have big plans for my own outdoor space this year.
Have you spotted anything you’ll be adding to your wishlist for the summer? For those of you who love fashion and accessories I’ll be sharing my favourites from the press day in a post next week so watch this space.
