Next Homeware Haul

15/03/2014

Most of my furniture and accessories (as well as some of my clothes) are from Next. I do really like their ranges and they are not too expensive either. Whenever we are decorating a room or looking for something we need for the house, Next is always the first place we look.

Our Living room is decorated in neutral colours (Cookie Dough and Soft Truffle) so I like to change the colour scheme of our accessories to change the look of our room rather than having to re-decorate.  As it’s now Spring I thought I would go for green and pink accessories.  We also needed new curtains so that was something else that I bought.

These are the curtains that I bought:

The accessories that I bought were green cushions x 4, green butterfly tealight holders x 2, a cream bowl, Pot Pourri, an Owl vase, an Owl tealight holder and a decorative Love word.  The other thing that I bought which wasn’t for the Living room was a Butterfly water bottle to go with the Butterfly glasses that I bought at New Year.  I thought that they would go well as a lemonade set for Al Fresco dining (I’m thinking of warm Summer evenings already!!).

 

 

 

 

And here is the finished look!  We are about to change the flooring in our living room as this was the original flooring that we had when we bought the house.  It didn’t bother me too much but after finding out that it’s been laid the wrong way (laminate/wooden flooring should be laid with them running in the same direction as the longest, straight wall) it’s really annoyed me, also there are a few chips in it too so it does need replacing.  Once it has been finished I will post a photo on Twitter.

Don’t think the cat is too impressed with the new look :)!

Spread the love

    Hi Emma, I love it too but I don't think my Husband is overly keen on it :D! I'm sure it will grow on him though. It was £14 so not that expensive. Thank you for your lovely comment too. He is cute but I think in this photo he looks a grumpy, old cat (he is 18 this month, so he is an old man). Thanks for dropping in by 🙂 xx

    I love dark wood furniture! and that painting/picture with the trees looks amazing there!
    I still don't know how can you have a cat and (not scratched) leather couches.

    Hi Dixx, trust me there are a few small scratches there. I think he is too old now & past the destructive stage :)! Do your cats scratch your furniture? Thanks for dropping in by 🙂 xx

    It's such a good idea to refresh your accessories instead of having to redecorate an entire room. I love the colours you've picked and the owl tea-light holder and vase are so cute!

      Hi Charlene, it definitely makes a difference as I think that if you have the same look for a long time you start to get bored with it. It's definitely much cheaper than buying paint, wallpaper, etc. The whole lot came to just under £100.

      I don't think this was the most flattering picture of him (but hey, we all have a few of those going about ;)!) I think he could give Grumpy Cat a run for his money so I have promised him that his next photo opportunity I will make sure that he looks fabulous!! Thanks for dropping in by 🙂 xx
