Now that Robin and I have moved into our new home (we're now homeowners pals...really can't get used to saying that!) I seem to have homewares on the brain and automatically find myself at lunchtime scouring the web for nice pieces for the house. But, in a catch twentytwo as we have been in furnished rented accommodation until now we have no furniture to our names, so have been busy buying larger bits and bobs which doesn't leave a lot of money for other things. So...in a bid to still buy some nice things for the house I've been turning to the old faithful supermarkets for inspiration and there is a tonne of amazing finds to be had!
This is my first post on the treasures to be found in supermarkets both in homewares and clothing (in future posts), in a bid to still be stylish and quirky but without spending all my non-existent molla, so first up we have ASDA! Asda was always my supermarket of choice when I was at home, but since I've been in Edinburgh I haven't lived close enough to one to get my weekly shop from there. Now we have a car though a wee trip is a lot more manageable and I realised what I've been missing.
As you can see from a few of my favourite pieces above, Asda have a whole range of lovely homewares, from bedlinen to cushions and lamps and all at really affordable prices too and will make the house look pure dead beaut! I do think though Robin will kill me if I buy another cushion, as only having one sofa at the moment and 6 cushions, there isn't a lot of room for a body to sit, but they are just gorgeous, particularly the peacock cushion and the Jerry Maguire cushions. I also absolutely adore the grey poofe, the retro milk clock, the book lamp and the watering can with the lavender in it, which will be great for making the house smell lovely. Lavender, the colour and the plant itself seem to be everywhere at the moment too. These would all look amazing in the flat...So many nice things, so little time!
What do you think of my favourite choices in Asda homewares? Do you have your eye on something in the picture above? Do you shop in supermarkets for nice things for your house?
