A couple of weeks ago I was asked to go along to the Next Homeware and Fashion event in my local store. A store which I hadn't visited before, usually go to town or shop online, I was amazed at what Next actually stocks and the really reasonable prices the goods are at!
There are some amazing collections available that I have promptly decided I need and it has really made me excited about the prospect of owning my own home (in however many years it will take me) which I can decorate and have themes in each room.
The first theme we were shown was "The Good Life" which breathes Scandinavian simplicity into your home with soft yellow, ochre and putty shades. You can see a lot of this display in my vlog, it's so lovely and refreshing. There are a lot of craft influences with things like jam jar vases, knits and crochet. It's very fifties inspired yet still looks so modern.
Another theme for the spring/summer is Blossom and Bloom which takes organic prints straight from the catwalks and puts them into watercolour designs for bedding, wallpaper and cushions. The theme features raspberry pink heavily and it's softened with pastel hues.
One of my favourite themes in the store was the Boat House. The nautical elements were right up my street from the porthole mirrors to the rope laterns - I love it! I also like how the theme looks amazing in a living room because it knocked the stereotype of a nautical bathroom right out of my head.
For the most beautiful rustic tones the San Diego theme ticks all the boxes. It's so different to anything I have ever seen before, I loved the burnt orange shades.
Following on from the homeware we were also given a voucher to spend and spent the afternoon at St David's Hotel being pampered and shown the new tv advert which is so clever! We also got to see how it was made, very very clever! I will be posting about that in another post!
What do you think to NEXT homeware?
