I can’t believe that it’s now been 3 years since we’ve been in our current home, and will be a whole year in August since we completed our downstairs renovation and remodel of the entire ground floor! 

This past year has sped by so fast, yet we’re still to put a few finishing touches into certain spaces, and that’s not a bad thing at all- it takes time to ‘bed in’ to a home I think, and I believe that mistakes can be made with home decor if you rush. The phrase ‘marry in haste, repent in leisure comes to mind’, even when talking about home styling!

I’m sharing here my favourite summer John Lewis homeware picks, and to celebrate the year since our renovation, I’m giving one lucky reader the chance to win a £100 John Lewis Gift Card on my blog today.

All you have to do is fill in the Rafflecopter below, using as many of the options as you’d like, once you’ve had a look through my favourites pieces/styles. I’d love to hear what you love too- do let me know in the comment below! 

Good Luck!

EAST END PRINTS Bo Lundberg & Frances Collett Unframed Prints

I absolutely love these retro-syle prints that John Lewis are currently stocking. Artist Bo Lundberg takes you back to the beginning of the ’70s, and Frances Collett uses a retro font and palette to bold effect. I would love these in my utility room right now, as I still haven’t find the right pictures/ prints for in here.


John Lewis & Partners Anton Coffee Table, Natural/Black

I LOVE this value-for-money Scandi-style coffee table, which at £129 is considered fairly easy on the purse by John Lewis standards. Made of high-quality oak veneers and plywood, it’s just the right size for the centre of your living room. The rounded edges give it a softer profile, and safe for a family home. A real classic that will last the distance!


John Lewis Potter Double Outdoor Wall Light, Black

If you’re looking for something stylish-yet-quirky for your outside space this summer, look no further than these fab garden wall lights! Made from sturdy steel with clear glass panels. It’s a modern and functional lighting solution for your outdoor space and will look impressive when installed on either side of an entryway. If we hadn’t installed other wall lights last year, I would’ve snapped these up in an instant!
