Many years ago, when I first moved to Southampton as a poor student, there was a big Habitat in the shopping centre there, and I would frequently go and have a longing trawl around the shop, dreaming of a time a few years later when I would own a place of my own and be able to fill it with beautiful things. For me, Habitat has always had an edge over other homeware shops and websites; their designs are always really unique, colourful and a little bit different. They seem more design-led than other high street interiors brands, and I love that just buying a couple of their home accessories can really spruce up a room.
Their newest collection is seriously dreamy, with lots of summer-y brights and pops of colour. Their kitchenware is gorgeous – we have our kitchen being fitted in a couple of weeks and as it’s predominantly black and grey I’ll definitely be adding some cheer with some of their storage jars and crockery. Here are my current favourites from their newest additions.
Things have been really coming along in our house lately – the kitchen is going to be such a dramatic change, and we’ve also been trying to pull everything together in the living room by keeping to a specific colour scheme and looking at some new furniture. Habitat having some rather lovely sofas which I’ve been eyeing up.
Habitat have a fun campaign at the moment centering around ‘ourhabitat’, which involves showing off your Habitat products, in their natural habitat – your home (that’s a lot of mentions of the word habitat in one sentence!) They’ve also made some fun Youtube videos showing off some of their products in their own habitat. This one is for the rather beautiful Sedgewick sofa…
As well as the YouTube videos, they’ll be holding an instagram competition from 27th May until 30th June, asking fans to share their Habitat items in their homes, using the #ourhabitat hashtag (you’ll also need to follow their instagram). The winner will receive a £250 voucher!
Are you a fan of Habitat homeware? What do you think of their new range? Do you love it as much as I do?
