I was recently offered the opportunity to snap up a few items from the latest George Homewares section, and the idea of stocking up on some new bits to cosy-fy our house definitely appealed. I was not prepared for just how awesome their new ranges are - I'm not just saying this, I want everything. There are eight new ranges, which have taken inspiration from world travels, and different trends from around the globe. I was asked to pick one and write about why I chose it, and it was HARD. I was extremely tempted by Luna - all coppers and metallics, with smoky greys and charcoal. It's basically my interiors Pinterest board but in a ridiculously reasonably priced homewares range. I mean - a globe lamp for £15? I have seen them for £50 in trendy design shops!
In the end though, my heart was won by the Tundra range. I mean - even the name just conjures up images of moose galloping by your window as you relax in front of an open fire, swaddled in a (faux) fur blanket, with candles burning away in the background. It makes me feel cosy just thinking about it.
The next challenge of course was narrowing it down to a few items to welcome into our home (confession: I've since bought more!) A new lamp for Tom's bedside table was a must - a beautiful ceramic base with a copper stand won me over immediately (and £35? Hello!) Some new comfy bedsheets were a given, this tufted, textured arrow cushion looks much more expensive than its £15 pricetag, and a new tray and mugs makes chai lattés in bed on a rainy Sunday morning much more fun.
I'm a total sucker for quilt cover that has a different colour on the other side (mainly so I can fold the corner over and take photos like you see in interiors magazines.... yep). This geo duvet cover is an instant favourite of my mine - putting the new sheets on on Sunday and then climbing underneath with Kinfolk magazine was probably the highlight of my week! The only thing better than clean sheets, is new sheets.
