Room Tour | Affordable Homeware

Happy Sunday! Or happy day whenever you may read this! I hope you're well.

Please excuse my absence on my Wednesday posts. I've been a bit busy and as a result I've not managed to stick my to my blogging scheduling of twice a week :( I've been organising a blogger meet up that's happening in a weeks time. Contacting various brands and working with them, as well as reorganizing my flat, which is where this post comes in.

In the midst of having a clear out I also wanted to jazz up my bedroom with a new duvet cover and cushions. With the clutter gone I thought I would showcase my room. I love homeware so I hope you like this post!



The latest edition to my room (which I do share with Dan but you'd never guess!) is this geometric duvet cover from George at Asda for £14 for a Kingize. George at Asda is a treasure trove of on trend duvet covers at really great prices. I tend to get most my bed linen from here.

I chose this design as I'm really liking the pink and grey colour palette at the mo. It's a simple design and I like the versatility of having one side pink and one side grey.
To accessorise this I have added three cushions also from George at Asda. These are two initial cushions, one 'D' for Dan and an 'A' for Abbie. To balance out the black of these cushions I also got this 'Sleep' cushion to go in the middle.

I really like the idea of having various canvas artwork and typography as a feature wall but being a rented flat we are unable to hang up anything on the walls. So I came up with the ingenious idea of attaching my canvas's to the top of my headboard.
I did this by using double sided tape as I didn't want them falling on my head during the night!
The left and two far right canvas's are from a set of three from Wilko's and the large one is from Tesco.




Next up is my dressing table which I mentioned in a previous post was brought from charity furniture outlet store. I have customised the wooden draw handles by replacing them with ceramic rose handles from Homebase.
I try to keep the top of the dressing table clutter free and leave the draws full and disorganised instead! On top of my dressing table I have a painted spotted vase from Tiger (or Flying Tiger as it's otherwise known). I have the larger version which I do use as a vase but I have used this smaller one as a cosmetics brush holder.
I have also added a faux white flower in a silver pot for decoration. I have also a copper lamp from Ikea for added illumination when applying my make up. In the corner for storage I have a wicker style draw set from Argos. On top of that I have a typography quote from a set from Homesense in a silver frame from Tiger. Next to this I have a small ceramic swan which is also from Tiger. This is sold as a flower pot but I thought it would make a great cotton pad holder!




I love books so a bookcase is a must for me. This one really is more for show as it has limited space for all my books. The Audrey Hepburn quote I found in Homesense. I am a fan of Audrey so this was a must! The pink faux flower is also from Homesense. I have a collection of Zoella fragrances and I have these sit in a glass tray (if I remember where this is from I will add this in!).
Beneath this I have a collection of books by one of the many Chick Lit authors I love, Jill Mansell. Next to that is a silver 'A' from Homesense (really is a great store for homeware!).
The rest are trinkets I have accumulated during the years. The bookcase itself is from an work colleague who was getting rid of it and I rehomed it. I love furniture that is preloved. I like something one off and has some history.


This is a chair from Ikea and there is no room in our front room for it so I decided to put it in the bedroom. I have covered it in a patch work style throw from Primark. And to make it more inviting I have added cushions from the Card Factory. See all my furnishings are super affordable. Perhaps if I had more money I'd be all Oliver Bonas and Anthropologie but I stick within my means!


This wicker mannequin is another charity shop find. I have this in the corner of my room and I have wrapped some pink flower lights around it to make it look more styled and give it a more functional purpose.

And that rounds up my room tour. I hope you enjoyed it and it has given you some inspiration for your own room d├ęcor. I for sure don't claim to be an interior stylist but I do love homeware and I hope that comes through!

And if you are looking for some affordable homeware here are the sites I would recommend:

Dunelm
Matalan
George at Asda

And if you have the extra budget you might also like to try:

I'd love to know if you have any suggestions of great places to find homeware. Especially one's that aren't so commonly known.
