(AD – Sponsored Post) With Spring on the horizon, I’m feeling pretty excited to make a few changes to my house. Although I have quite an eclectic quirky look when it comes to my house, I love finding key pieces on the high street to add little finishing touches. I love anything with a slightly retro feel, with lots of plants, touches of gold and fun prints. I’ve been having a peek at some of my favourite budget friendly high street shops for a little inspo and I’ve found so many things I love. I’ve chosen a few key trends, perfect for mini home makeovers, to make your home ready for Spring and Summer.
Primark – I can never resist a look round the home section of Primark, whether I’m picking up cute Harry Potter bit’s for my Harry Potter themed bathroom, or getting cute bedding for the girls, I usually find something I love. For spring and summer they have lots of gorgeous faux plants in a selection of gorgeous pots, which look really nice amongst my real plants and pretty ornaments.
Matalan – Abstract patterns and contemporary art seem to be everywhere this year and Matalan has really delivered when it comes to creating a modern, yet feminine look. I absolutely adore this colour palette, for a restful homely feel.
My Decorating Tips – I have a basic colour scheme for each room in the house and love to mix vintage finds with my favourite high street pieces. I also have spray paint in all my key colours, so if I see something I love I can modify it to fit with my decor. You might like my Gold Dinosaur Ornaments post, that I shared a few weeks ago.
Sainsburys – I got a little over excited last time I popped into Sainsburys to buy some groceries. Their homeware range is absolutely amazing at the moment and totally matches the theme of my living room. I am a bit obsessed with shades of green and lots of gold details. I also have quite a lot of decorative items featuring animals, so this is totally on brand!
Very – Along similar lines, I really love the homeware offering from Very. The furniture is absolutely beautiful and paired with gorgeous greens and plenty of metallics, I am sold! I recently bought some palm tree wallpaper for my living room, which will be going up soon so this whole look has really inspired me.
My Decorating Tips – Spring and summer are the perfect time for big home improvements. Whether you’re just decorating or doing the big things like new windows, doors and conservatories it’s best to do it when the days are long and the rain stays away. https://www.threecountiesltd.co.uk have a fab selection of windows, doors and conservatories, ideal for those big home makeover projects. Having done two big house renovations myself, I know how important choosing the right features for your house can be.
Dunelm – Back to a softer more girlie colour palette, Dunelm’s mix of pinks and mustard with beautiful textiles is really inspiring me. I’d quite like to redecorate both Jessica’s and my bedroom this summer and I’m determined to include this colour scheme somewhere. It also lends itself well to a neutral colour scheme, so if you’re renting or want to keep your walls white, then this is this is an ideal way to go.
Oliver Bonas – I find it impossible to walk past an Oliver Bonas store without having to go in for a swoon. I have quite a few little home accessories from them and love how quirky and unique they are. I am really liking all their textiles and pottery at the moment. I’m currently on the look out for a new coffee table and would love to get some vases and jugs as a little table top feature piece.
My Decorating Tips – My biggest tip for making your home look great, is to have regular decluttering sessions. My family love leaving things lying around and things can often get a bit piled up. I regularly channel my inner Marie Kondo and get rid of things we don’t need, find organised homes for things we do need and make sure that everything I can see sparks joy. Once I have an area completely clear and tidy I like to put something pretty in it. Be that a house plant or ornament, it looks good and stops anyone putting any mess there!
Wilko – If you want a warmer colour scheme, then Wilko has really delivered with their Spring Summer range. More abstract patterns, but in a gorgeous selection of contrasting colours. These would look great with some retro mid century furniture and would work well with both neutral decor or one of the featured colours.
