home: made [ house numbers ]
If you are looking to stand out from your neighbours, or fancy making a statement then you should consider the outside of your house as well as the inside with updating your house number.
Gone are the days of traditional brass numbers on the front door or decorative ceramic plates fixed to the wall. There is now a new wave of ideas including neon, incorporating plants and hammered nails. Of course some of these ideas might be a bit over the top in reality but we hope they inspire you.

home: nice price [ rug ]
A simple and easy way to modernise and update a room is to use rugs. Bring colour and pattern into a room without it being overpowering. A great place to get well priced rugs is Ikea; simple and stylish examples ranging in size and shape, but all at great prices. Our favourite at the moment is the ROSKILDE indoor / outdoor rug in teal green and cream [ 200cm x 250cm ]. The 50s / 60s inspired design will bring interest to any room and at £59 it is a real bargain.
home: favourite thing [ stoneware bowls ]
The weather is improving and there is a glimpse of hope of getting some alfresco dining in before Summer is out. We love these bowls from Habitat, perfect for serving salads and pasta dishes. Each bowl is glazed with a natural salt finish, creating a rustic and unique effect.
Available in small [ £5 ], medium [£8 ] and large [£10 ] plus a serving bowl with lid [ £18 ]
home: nice price [ tropical tray ]
Summer is almost upon us and as the weather heats up we can finally start moving outdoors to eat, drink, and entertain.
We found this tropical print tray from hm.com [ £12.99 ] which is bright and fun and will bring focus to any table. There are also matching cushions and coasters, also at a great price.

home: found this [ garden chair ]
As the weather gets better, find a comfortable reading spot outside, instead of in.
This great, oversized outdoor wicker seat from Maison Du Monde would be a welcome retreat after a long day, in the garden.
Browse their outdoor range to find dining sets, loungers, tables and more to make your garden the perfect outdoor styled room.
home: nice price [ tableware ]
Following on from the ‘colour therapy‘ trend featured last week, we continue to fall in love with more colour.
This collection of tableware – bamboo tumblers, plates and bowls from Habitat fits the brief for bright refreshing alfresco dining, and we think they are a great price, as all outdoor products are currently 20% off.
Set of 4 bamboo tumblers, set of 4 bamboo bowls or set of 4 bamboo plates are all now only £4.
As well as dining the sale includes accessories, furniture and planters. So don’t hang about, grab something now.

home: favourite thing [ Tiger ]
Last month we featured Tiger [ nice price ], and we still can’t get enough of the Danish brand. Continuing with their new Spring collection we see the addition of planters and pots in pastel shades. Choose from zinc buckets and plant pots, ceramic hanging planters and plastic corrugated flower pots [ starting from £2 ]. Great for indoors and out.
Don’t hang about, the best pieces can go quick.
