Winter bedroom refresh
This week I had the pleasure of popping along to the Pennies ( Primark in the UK ) press day. This was my first time to go to the press day and we got a sneak peek into what is coming into stores for Spring Summer 2018. I was delighted when I got a gift card when I was leaving, so, I decided to head to my local Pennies in Blanchardstown and I got some homeware items to refresh my guest bedroom. I wanted to make my guest bedroom more inviting and cosy for Winter. I also put together a video on my Youtube channel so you can see how I styled it up in my bedroom and have a better look at the items I got.
The colours in my guest bedroom are quite neutral with some greys, lilacs and whites. As I have the floral wallpaper as the main feature, I wanted pieces that wouldn’t take away from the paper but pieces that would sit nicely next to it. I wanted to add some texture to the room so I went for sequin cushions, fake fur throw and frills. I wanted pieces that you want to touch and feel when you go into the room. My whole haul came to €105, so if you are on a budget then you could easily change up your bedding and get some new pieces and not break the bank. I got a lot for my money.
I fell in love with the sequin cushions, my only issue with the sequin cushions was that they have no zipper. I also got a set of two cushions for €9 and these came with a zipper. Anyone who has cats or kids in their house knows how dirty things can get, so, I love being able to unzip and throw into the washing machine.
The duvet set I got was a steal at €20 for a double size, it came with two pillowcases also. I wanted a second white duvet set so that when people stayed over I had a spare set to put on. For the end of the bed, I got a gorgeous knit style blanket for €20. I bought this so I could pick up on the colours of the sequin cushions.
I wanted to add a little bit of Christmas to the room so I got this fab golden reindeer, this little chap was only €8. I also got an adorable mini stag snowglobe for €3. After seeing Zoella with a copper style cup on her Youtube I decided I wanted one too so I got this gorgeous copper cup for €5. To add a bit of twinkle I got these bulb style battery pack lights. I just love battery pack lights. They are great for spaces where you have limited plug sockets.
I hope you liked my little homeware haul. Please check out my Youtube video below to get a better look and don’t forget to pop over to my Instagram and say Hi and let me know what is your favourite piece of the haul.
