I love an interiors bargain even more than a fashion one sometimes – it’s so satisfying to be able to create a certain look for less. I’ve recently found a few examples of similar products at very different prices, so it’s up to you whether you spend or save.

Details L-R:

 Alberta copper pendant light, £70, Matalan / Jonas wire copper pendant light, £47, B&Q

Irina embroidered cushion, £55, Habitat / Slub weave cushion cover, £6.99, H&M Home

Grapefruit 150ml reed diffuser, £27, The White Company / Ginger 100ml reed diffuser, £15, M&S

I really like the trend for wire pendant lights as they have a more delicate aesthetic than some heavier styles and of course I’m a sucker for the copper look of these two examples which are almost identical (apart from the price)! To really maximise the effect, source some LED filament bulbs like these, to give the lighting a subtle industrial feel. They’d look fab in a hallway to create a real wow effect on entrance.

Never one to turn down the opportunity for a cushion refresh I always have a browse online to see what’s new and these two styles jumped out at me. While I like the geometric design of many prints, they can be a bit ‘cold’ or ‘hard’ for me so I like the colourful  and slightly more bohemian feel of these with their special embroidery and fabric.

And finally, I have become that person who is increasingly obsessed with nice fragrances and that includes the house. Three kids and two cats takes its toll and the house can get messy (and a little whiffy at times). I’m not really one for lots of plugins or traditional air fresheners but I do think a nice, good quality reed diffuser can make everything feel a bit more pleasant. Both of these I’ve chosen smell great, look good and are fairly long-lasting. Often I’ll just move one around the house from time to time so that the smell doesn’t get too overpowering in the same room.

And on that embarrassing admission I think I’d better go and clean and tidy the house!
