Last year I was asked to style some shots for Dunelm and I must admit that I wasn’t overly impressed with the product then.

This season however, I have bought so many props from there, many of which would easily sit happily with much more expensive surroundings. If you look closely at what’s on offer you will seek out some little diamonds.

Here are just a selection of my favourite items currently on offer there.

Continuing with our love for vintage distressed rugs as seen above by Westelm, Dunelm have brought out this version below for just £125 for the largest size.

 

A version of this designer industrial style mirror can be bought for £45.00 from Dunelm.

Another continuing trend which Dunelm have picked up on is for supersize knits.

This Paignton hand knitted chunk throw below comes in cream and grey for just £45.00

 

A beautifully minimal copper lamp picking up on the scandi design trend is an online purchase only.

Float lamp £110.00

 

 

Yellow is one of this seasons colour trends and this felt wool cushion is just £10.00

Also worth checking out are their new furniture ranges.

This coffee table from their Pimlico range picks up on the current trend for brass while the Farringdon range below is a great affordable collection of industrial inspired loft style furniture.

What do you think about Dunelm Mill? Do you shop there or would you consider shopping there now?

All words and opinions are my own. This is not a sponsored post.

Does grey make everything look chicer and more stylish? It seems that every stylist is using it to make product stand out and it works. These shots for House of Fraser’s new Home wares range are simple and elegant and enticing me to buy? What about you? No wonder Farrow & Ball have just increased their range of grey, it is the most classic of colours.

When ever we go to Hebden Bridge, which is a great place for small independent shops and vintage shopping, we always call in at Todmorden, which is an old Lancashire Mill town. The Picture House Antiques on Rochdale Road, is set over three floors, in a lovely Victorian building, right next door to The Bear Cafe and shop and is always worth a snoop around.

One of my favourite retailers within this shop is, H is for Home, which is a carefully curated collection of retro items for the home. Amongst the stock I saw this week were, angle poise lamps, metal industrial filing cabinets, old school, plywood, stacking children’s chairs, retro fabrics and cushions, lots of retro kitchenalia and some great 1960’s framed posters advertising British Seaside destinations.

There is also an online store, with a large range of ever changing stock and regular updates on their blog, featuring tantalising glimpses of items they have picked up on their travels that will be in the store or online soon.
