John and I and four other lovely blogging families (Fritha, Katie, Jessica and Caro) were invited to make ourselves at home for the day and get to see first hand what the new collection looks like within a real home setting while the wonderful people at George had organised some fun crafts for all the kids, including the popular biscuit decorating, to keep them entertained and happy. All the children really enjoyed the kids rooms which were packed with toys waiting to be played with while I personally loved the living spaces, main bedroom, as well as the simple and stylish nursery.
One of my personal favourites was the Jessica cot bed which was so sturdy and well made with a classic design and had I seen this when pregnant with Baby G it would of been on my "must have" list. The colour schemes were light and fresh with touches of floral soft patterns and prints and everything felt very accessible especially to those with children and are looking to create a family home.
Both John and I were really impressed with the quality of the products, especially their larger furniture pieces such as the Valerie sofa and scandi inspired Brooklyn kitchen table and chairs. I think the overall feel was how well designed everything was, with a mix of traditional and on trend pieces as well as the variety of products from bedding to rugs, chairs, mirrors and accessories.
We had a really amazing time with all the kids getting on so well with each other and giving us grown-ups the chance to talk, relax and catch up. My eldest was particularly excited to see Wilfred again as we have over the past few years met up a various times with Fritha and her lovely little family. With the sun shining through the large windows, good food on the table and happy children everywhere this was a fantastic way to spend the day, all within a stunning home that oozed inspiration.
Thanks so much to George at Home for inviting us.
