The thing I fell in love with this week

Teal vase £1.50 – Store Twenty One 

We are currently decorating our bedroom (part of a house revamp which will see us pretty much redo every room in our house bar the kitchen) and a few weeks ago I painted over the strong red (!) the bedroom had been when we moved in, to a new deep teal colour.

I have been looking out for accessories that will add a highlight of teal to our existing items and while in Store Twenty One saw this lovely little vase. Regular readers of this blog will know I’m a big fan of Store Twenty Ones homeware range and often pop in to see what bargains they have. This beauty was in their sale for only £1.50 reduced from £3!

It reminds me of a Jonathan Adler vase and looks much more expensive than it was – plus it fits in with our new colour scheme perfectly! 

What do you think?

Look out for my blog on the finished room coming soon.

Store Twenty One Summer buys

I really like the homewares range in Store Twenty One. Its on trend, stylish and very competitvely priced.  I blogged about my Spring homeware buys from this hidden gem here and often pop in to see whats new. I have recently fallen in love with a new range they have called Candy Floss. Its really pretty, in sugary pastel colours with a lovely retro vibe reminiscent of Orla Kiely and I couldn’t resist treating myself to a few bits especially since they had a 20% off promotion!   
Here is my top picks from the range – 
Hanging tree photo frame – £8.00  Cut out key cabinet – £5.00
 Three part storage shelf – £10.00  Hanging Bird frames – £8.00 Cut out tree decoration – £3  Set of three frames on shelf – £10.00  
I also fell in love with these retro storage boxes – I love a 1960’s inspired print!
Set of cardboard retro storage boxes – £3.00 to £6.00.

And these are the bits I’ve bought so far.  They will be going into our renovated utility room when its completed.  I love them! 

All these items are in store now!  Look out for promotions and special offers across the summer. To find your nearest store click here.

Store Twenty One Spring star buys

If you’re a regular reader, you’ll know I love fashion and homewares store, Store Twenty One.  A hidden gem and full of bargains, I shop there a lot and in todays blog I’m going to show you my latest purchases.

My mini haul – 

In store there’s a great selection of homewares, but the range I was drawn to was the glass hurricane lamps and candleholders. A mix of smoky colours and brighter yellows and blues it really is on par with anything you’d see in a department store.  With prices starting from £1.99 you can’t go wrong!

What I bought – 

Grey hurricane lamp – £7.99.  A fantastic chunky shape with twisted rope handle this will be great indoors or out.

‘All you need is love’ tealight holder – £1 (reduced from £1.99). So pretty when the tealight is lit, and for me, a perfect message….

Pineapple glass vase – £1.99.  I love a fun, kitsch piece and this doesn’t disappoint.  Will be adorable with spring flowers in co-ordinated with some other vases.

‘Be Happy’ cushion – £2 (reduced from £4).  I just love this design – end of.  Again its the type of thing you’d pay a lot more for in a different store.   I bought two to sit on the bar stools in my kitchen.

And I think I’m going back to buy more!   Watch this space…

What do you think of the SS15 range?  Do you love it as much as I do?
