Home Sweet Home

With the summer months coming to an end and the new season just around the corner, September is the perfect time for new beginnings. Whether you’re a student getting ready to move to University or you simply feel like giving your home accessories a shake up, we say out with the old and in with the new!

One of the rooms we spend most of our time in, whether at home or at University, is the bedroom, and there really is nothing as comforting as getting into a freshly made bed! What makes this duvet set from H&M even more special than normal though is the rainbow pattern. Over the past few months the rainbow has been a prominent symbol in society signifying hope and positivity, so what better way to bring some colour back into your life than by waking up and going to sleep each day with rainbow bedding!

H&M – Patterned Duvet Cover Set – £19.99

If you’re all about the positive vibes then you NEED this ‘smile’ cushion from Robert Dyas. Not only will it make an instant impact in your room but it will also act as a gentle reminder that even on your bad days, everything will be ok if you just smile.

Smiling really is infectious, and a sure way to make your guests grin is by giving this wooden prosecco crate centre stage in your home. Forget plain boring storage boxes, this season it’s all about what not only looks good but makes you feel good too!

The same goes with your notebook or diary. If you’re a student, your notebook will be your Holy Grail for, well, pretty much everything! And the same goes with a person and their diary, if you like to write things down and be organised, you’ll most likely take this with you everywhere you go ‘just in case’ something new pops up. So, for a little book that plays such a big part in your day-to-day life, make sure you get your hands on this eye-catching one from The Works, guaranteed to brighten up your day.

The Works – A5 Important Thoughts Notebook – £2

Talking about brightening up your day, we absolutely love this book-shaped light from MenKind. Use it as a study desk lamp for your University halls or place it on your coffee table at home to create a more chilled atmosphere, either way, it will most definitely be a main feature point in your room this season.

MenKind – Folding Book-Shaped Light – £40

If creating feature points is something you’re passionate about with your home décor, then you’re going to need potted succulents! Artificial or real, big or small, adding some greenery into your indoor living space is always a good idea.

TK Maxx – Beige Potted Artificial Mixed Succulents – £9.99

Our favourite home accessory of them all is a scented candle. Romantic night in? Candle. Something to take the smell of cooking away? Candle. House warming gift or birthday present? Candle. Whatever the occasion a candle is ALWAYS a winner! Card Factory has a wide variety of candle scents and themes, but our favourite has to be the home sweet home vanilla one, yum!

Card Factory – Home Sweet Home Vanilla Scented Celebration Candle – £4.99
