Home is where the heart is, and with the seasons finally changing, it’s time to turn our attention to swapping up the homely accents around our abodes. From adding statement features to switching out our storage system, we’ve handpicked our favourite High Street homeware must-haves…
One of the most simple ways to update a room or piece of furniture is to swap out your doorknobs and handles. We adore the Glassy Pinwheel Knob from Anthropologie, which comes in four colourways. The glassy look is stunning during the infamous summer golden hour, and will instantly update a room. Match them up or buy an array in each colour for a colour eccentric feel. Oh so chic.
We can’t resist a good throw cushion. We simply can’t. They’re the focal attention in our living rooms and swapping out colours, textures and prints will effortlessly uplift your living room for the new season. Try H&M’s Monochrome Cushion Cover for a smart, sassy look that won’t break the bank. Simply slip the cover over one of your existing cushions, et voila.
Now for a tip that we’ve been dying to share for an age: invest in a couple of Gifts & Pieces’ Glass Sundae Dishes to store your ‘etc’ essentials. From Skittles and rings, to nail polishes and even paperclips, they’re the ideal way to add a minimal vintage charm to your shelves. Along the same vintage charm route, we spotted the Framed Chalkboard Wall Sticker at Urban Outfitters and instantly snapped it up. Pride of place in the office for notes and messages (mostly declaring our love for each other). Easily DIY-able too – stay tuned…
Finally, taking things back to the living room again. We spied this retro inspired vase and box at H&M. Ideal for sprucing up your coffee table, they’re eye-catching without being too out there. Our glass vases and recycled Diet Coke bottles have been popped into hibernation for now.
