Finishing Touches, HomeSense Excitement and WIN! a £100 HomeSense Gift Card


Those who know and read this blog, will know that I am somewhat of an interiors nut- whether it’s doing up and renovating my own home, reading other interior-loving blogs, or catching up on the latest trends, I just love, love, LOVE all things homey. 

Which is why I still can’t believe that I hadn’t set foot until recently in a HomeSense, THE shop for all things interiors at very reasonable prices. A trip with the kids to Jump Giants in Dartford during February half term had me veering off-course with them post-bounce once I’d realised how close a store was, and swiftly hotfooting it into one of their stores. 

Definitely worth the extra M25 rush hour traffic home! 

Whilst I was fairly restrained during that visit, it won’t be long before I no-doubt bring a carload of new HomeSense purchases back with me.

Having recently done up and renovated our new home, with just the finishing touches to go, I’m looking forward to another trip sans kids to pick up some new homeware. I’m going to be looking for stylish-yet-useful storage for our kitchen and new baby’s room, prints for the hallways, excellent al-fresco patio accessories, a funky new dinner service, and some new bed linen as an addition to our newly decorated bedroom

There’s also something about Spring that makes you want to ditch the Hygge, throw open those windows and get your spring clean and accessorize on. Well, maybe not quite so enthusiastic about the cleaning, but you catch my drift…

And to celebrate a new season and tweaking your home, I’m feeling generous today as I have a whopping £100 HomeSense gift card to give away to one lucky blog reader.

All you have to do is fill in the Rafflecopter below, using as many options as you’d like. 

Good luck!

  1. I love HomeSense. This spring it’s the family bathroom that’s getting a make over, I have new cabinets and a lovely pale grey paint, now I just need hubby to pull his finger out and get it done.

  2. My bedroom because at the moment it is very boring and basic! I want a nice neat pretty room all fresh for the summer season 🙂

  3. We’re in the process of buying our first home and I think if I was lucky enough to win this I’d use it for the kitchen.

  10. The bedroom – its turned into a dumping ground for half the random crap in our flat and badly needs clearing out and a facelift 😀

  13. Definately our dining room which is looking a little tired and dull and needs some colourful accessories and fresh paint

  14. My wife wants to convert our now empty second bedroom into a sewing/craft room for herself, so this would be fab!

  31. My bedroom – it is DULL DULL DULL! Living in a rented house means I can’t change the dreadful magnolia walls and wood effect doors. But introducing a pop of colour via soft furnishings would be great.

  32. I’m hoping to finish making my bedroom look pretty, I’ve made some progress in the past few months but I’m not quite finished. 🙂

  33. We’re hoping to re-do several rooms this year — we’re well overdue for some decorating! but if we win this voucher, I’d probably spend it on the living room.

  37. I’d like to tweak my living, the last person who lived here didn’t look after it really well and it really needs improvements

  38. We moved into a new build house last year, and we are still finding the time & money to decorate. The room most in need of a facelift is our bedroom, it’s so bare and empty, and has bare plaster on one of the walls, that the builders still haven’t fixed! xx

  39. My living room definitely needs a bit of a refresh! I’d love to go and get some giant cushions from Homesense – my friend got some recently and they’re gorgeous! 🙂

  52. I’m moving my son into a different room to make way for the new arrival so his new room will need tweaking

  54. I’m actually hoping to make small changes throughout the whole house, my partner and I separated in December and I’d like to make the house feel more like mine 🙂

  55. For me it would have to be the spare bedroom. New curtains, bedding and cushions would make a massive difference

  64. We are currently converting our living room to an open plan living room/kitchen, not an easy task! I’m looking for items to tie in both parts of the room! Possibly cushions and throws and a new dinner plates. I just wish it to be an inviting colourful and creative feeling area for the whole family to rest in. Oh and to get the creative juices flowing at homework time!!

  65. All of it apart from my livingroom! We moved in in October and managed to get the livingroom completely sorted before Christmas and was meant to restart on the house after Christmas was out of the way, but its still not done.

  66. I want to makeover the lounge. Our cushions are beautiful but after years of use they are now a little threadbare. I bought them at TK Maxx, before they split off the HomeSense part so I know it is a great place to find a bargain.

  75. The whole house but the kitchen is the most important place to start as we spend so much time in there
