In January, everyone feels a little meh. It's cold outside, we are all back to work, weather is awful and there are no more christmas dinners. The only plus side to this new month is.....January Sales! Now that all the decorations have been taken down, your home can suddenly look really bare. So, over the next few days i'm going to show you some great sales picks to refresh your home with your winter essentials and bring some colour to your new year!
First up bedrooms!
Winter time brings your bedroom piled with blankets, duvets, winter clothes, stuff from Christmas still to be put away - but you could take full advantage and give your bedroom a little makeover but still keep your winter essentials like blankets and throws. Simple additions like buying some new storage ideas for your Christmas clothes, or a new linen basket for washing, or like below, change your bedding and add some cushions to update your look at we look forward to that magic moment of spring coming. January finds some very good updates for your home in the sales, and here are a few of my favourites for bedrooms!
I'm a big believer in updating things you may already have, and cushions is one of my favourites that can totally change a look. We all have spare cushions somewhere at home, why not make use of them and give them some new covers? Most high street stores will now sell ranges in just the covers, so you won't need to buy a complete cushion. The collection above, comes from H&M.com, they are one of my favourite online stores for cushion covers. These gorgeous leaf print cushion covers are only £2.99 each in the sale (was £6.99) and would be the perfect way to update a cream bedroom scheme for example. Mix the colours, or not, but bringing some print to a neutral bedroom can be a way to bring some colour, be bold try it! I think this print range is a fantastic buy, see more here to buy:
If you are a fan of bold colour - Marks and Spencer currently have these oxford pillowcases in Spice online at just £2.99 each in the sale (were £12.99 each and have 230 thread count). The matching fitted sheet is available too - but I think mixing a pair of these for example with a white cotton duvet cover set and a throw like, below, can bring a whole new spicy winter look for not much money! Shop here for the pillowcases:
This gorgeous throw is a great offer and can add some serious style if you still love the quirky and cool geometric prints. I find this print can sit brilliant with colours and can update the simplest of rooms. Not just for the bedroom, but perfect for a living space too. But this is a great offer from Laredoute that will keep you warm and stylish in these winter nights! Shop the throw here:
If you are not quite so ready to take the colour jump, this bargain offers a twist on the classic white bed set. A quirky polka dot design can maybe tempt you to add some pattern into your bedroom if you are more reserved, or if you would like to try pattern but would like just a little touch. Or, this design could be the perfect match for your bed to pair up with big bold colours, cushions, throws, a rug - it's a good neutral to play with some spring colours! and for the double set it's only £20.00! A great buy! Have a look to buy here:
For some new spring colours and textures, these 2 designs from Made.com offer some serious chic touches to a bed. Pair up with a gorgeous faux fur throw, and some pastel or cream bedding and you could almost create your own version of the inspiration from above. Using tone, and textured cushions onto dress a bed will add that luxury touch and can take your room from drab to fab in a few touches of accessorising. These cushions, above top, Embroidered in soft lime, was originally £65, now £19 and the pink velour design was £45 and is now £12. To view and buy click here:
