|Me enjoying a picnic at HomeSense|
Last week was very exciting indeed as I was invited to take part in an Inspiration day at the Cardiff HomeSense. A lovely table with all sorts of yummy goodies including cupcakes and bubbly was set up and I was ready to help any readers and shoppers with any interior challenges they had. Before I settled down to have a chat with shoppers I spent the first hour walking around the store and picking out 10 must have items for the next season and with so many wonderful products I was really spoilt for choice.
Here are my 10 blogger picks
4. Being from South Africa I have always been a fan of colour and world trends so it's very exciting to see Moroccan prints make a real comeback this season and with a few carefully picked pieces you can get that stylish ethnic touch without going over the top and this lovely fabric covered bench would look wonderful in a hallway or living space.
5. One should never take themselves to seriously when it comes to interiors and you should always have a sense of fun, so when I saw this fabric decorative cat I thought it was just to different and unique to leave out of my top picks
6. Storage really doesn't need to be boring and I love stylish trunks prove that.
After I had chosen my blogger picks it was time to offer advice to any readers or shoppers who needed it and the turn out was great with quite a few people coming over for a chat, cake and some Elderflower presse. It was lovely to share everything I have learnt from growing up with parents who renovated houses and now myself who is in the process of doing up my own property. One of the ladies I spoke to had a long hallway similar to mine and wanted advice on how to create more light in what was a rather dark space of her home, we discussed wall colour, using mirrors to reflect light, simplifying the hallway to create a sense of space as well as adding some extra lighting. Overall it was a lovely way to spend an afternoon in such lovely store such as HomeSense and days like this is one of the reasons why I love doing what I do.
