Last month I did a post outlining some of my homeware favourites in our new flat. It was really popular and I have far more favourites to talk about so I thought I’d just get right into it and share with you my affordable homeware favourites part two!
I love these coasters from Amazon, because not only are they completely gorgeous but they were also super affordable. They were £10.22 for a set of 4, which also includes a yellow coaster and a blue one. They’re really heavy and feel like really good quality and I just love the pop of colour they give to a room, as well as the practicality. I love coasters because I hate getting rings on tables and windowsills from drinks and having these around minimise that completely. These are so Bohemian and beautiful; I’m so glad I picked them up!
I feel like everyone has one of these and I see why. This lantern is from IKEA was £2.45 and it looks so gorgeous with a tealight inside as glowing stars appear on the wall. I only ever really light this when we have guests over and I want to make a nice impression because it makes a room look so warm and inviting and also, it’s dirt cheap. This lives on our dining table and is just a lovely decorative piece that cause men to roll their eyes and deem ‘unnecessary’. However, I think it’s lovely and I really like it.
I have a post on Chloe Alice Lily specifically about Yankee Candles already, but I felt like this needed to be mentioned in my homeware favourites as well. The Fluffy Towels candle from Yankee is quite affordable for a candle of it’s size – especially now as it’s on sale on Amazon for £13.99! and it’s just the most delicious, clean scent which we have in our living room. It’s my all-time favourite Yankee fragrance and I don’t think there will ever be a time where this candle isn’t burning somewhere in a house that I live in. If you want a more detailed description of the scent, then my summer candles post is right up your street!
This is an adorable little heart from Primark, which hangs on our bedroom door. I wish I could say that it represents our love or something like that, but really I just like it because it’s a pastel shade of blue and it’s also floral. It’s made of metal which makes it quite sturdy but you can tell from the photo that it has been a little bent on one side, due to it being shut in the door… it was Johnny, I swear! I love little touches like this. It’s sometimes hard to make a rented place feel like yours, but beautiful little pieces like this really make the place feel like home.
Some of you with a keen eye might recognise this vintage poster from Amazon as the poster that hangs behind Monica’s TV in Friends. I never would have picked this as artwork for my wall in my house, but my dad got this for me last Christmas and I really like the way that it looks. It allows me to show off my geekiness about Friends without being obvious. We have it hanging up in our bedroom and I really like the way it fills a wall, as well as adding some lovely colours to the room. And also, it’s extremely cheap!
Finally, this is a pinboard from Next which isn’t available anymore, but you can find very similar ones on Amazon. My mum gave this to me as a gift when I went to uni and I had it on my door to pin up reminders and takeaway menus. Now, we use it as a place to leave messages to each other, as well as somewhere to pin up vouchers, menus or receipts that we need to keep. We hang it in the hallway above our cabinet and not only is it cute, but also extremely functional.
So, there we go – my homeware favourites part two! If you enjoyed this post, make sure to check out the first one and leave a comment letting me know your favourite homeware bits!
