High Street Heroes – B&Q favourite Homewares Finds

B&Q used to be a store that I only visited for paint and hardware such as screws and nails. That was until a few years ago when I started to work on design boards for their in store brochures. Everything for the shot had to be their own product and it was only then that I realised that they sold really quite nice throws, cushions and decorative objects. Since then a few years have passed and their homewares ranges have improved immensely, so much so that I now regularly pop into one of their stores to buy props for other clients shoots.

I was in my local Trafford store last week propping for a scandi inspired shoot. Scandinavian design is often predominantly black and white but the client wanted to bring some colour and warmth into the shots, so i’d decided to use blush pink and metallics such as copper and brass and I’ve had an artist paint a marble effect wall for us to add some texture.
