One of my favourite homeware stores to shop in is most certainly Dunelm Mill. Their range of beautiful and affordable homeware make it a number one stop for me, whether I’m looking for bedding, lighting, or anything else. I went shopping there this past Sunday to pick one thing up and over the course of my time there, it turned into five items. Here’s what I bought on my travels!
The main reason I went to Dunelm was because I needed a new lightshade. The old one I had was battered, tacky and had been there for many years. After browsing the section of lightshades, I came across this one and was drawn in by how elegantly designed this was. There was also a purple one on offer, but not a blue one to my dismay, so I bought the clear one. I love how the light reflects off each gem, showing a beautiful light display across my wall, which makes me feel like I’m at a disco!
Beach Style Glass Squares
Since redecorating my room, I’ve started to gather quite a collection of canvases and various wall art. When I saw these in my travels, I noticed the quote was a sony lyric I was very familiar with and had to nab them. The song is At The River by Groove Armada, although the actual lyric itself is a sample from an older song by singer Patti Page. Groove Armada’s song was one that was played in the car very often when I was younger and I thought this would add a little musical touch to my bedroom. Being from a seaside town, this will be a nice addition and brings a bit of the beach to me too.
Blue Button Heart Ornament
I saw this in the reduced section and grabbed it before it would be gone. What drew me to this was the colour. Since my room is a light turquoise colour, I thought it would be perfect and give my room a pop of colour. I love the design of this, I think it’s so cute, especially with the button holes and the little blue ribbon wrapped around. It’s a really sweet ornament and was just too much of a bargain not to leave in the store.
The fact that I have acquired a lot of heart shaped stuff lately was not planned at all. Seriously. But I saw this, realised it was chalkboard and grabbed it. I bought my nan a chalkboard with a house design on it for Mother’s Day and I’ve always wanted to have something chalkboard-related in my room to give it a traditional feel. The fact that it’s shaped into a heart and hangs with a gorgeous satin ribbon give my bedroom a lovely rustic and homely feel. I have this right by my bed so I can make random doodles and notes on it in the mornings.
