A Summer Homeware Wishlist

I haven't done a homeware wishlist in ages so I thought it was about time I change that. I really like buying new bits and pieces for the house around this time of the year and adding in more pops of colour for the summer. I've been looking at things mainly online but a lot of these should be in store too. 

Matalan Smiling Face Potted Plant £8 / Next Rose Gold Hexagon Shelf £40 / Next Knitted Pom Pom Throw £40 / New Look Self Love Club Slogan Mug £5.99

I'm obsessed with the cute smiling face potted plant from Matalan (it's not real btw) it's so cute and I think it would look nice in my room either on my bookcase or on my bedside table. I don't like having real plants in my room because I worry that my cats will either knock them over and I'll end up with soil everywhere or they'll try to eat them. I'm planning on popping in Matalan at some point in the next few weeks so I'm hoping I manage to get my hands on one. They also have different colours and different plant options too. I'm really into the hexagon shelves that everyone seems to have these days. I think you can definitely make a feature out of them which is why I added the Next one I came across to my list. I'd probably add some plants to the shelf as well as a cute print and maybe a small battery operated light just to make it look cosy.

I also came across the cute Next Knitted Mustard Pom Pom Throw from Next. I know this is supposed to be a summer homeware wishlist but I find some evenings it can get a little chilly especially when it's been really hot all day. So I thought the mustard throw would be a nice addition to have in the living room and it'd also go well with our teal feature wall. 

How cute is the Self Love Club Slogan Mug from New Look?! I definitely don't need any new mugs but I do think it's adorable. It'd also make a nice little gift for someone too.

Matalan Watercolour Floral Cushion £10 / Next Set of 2 Wicker Effect Baskets £26 / Sass & Belle Gold Honeycomb Bee Trinket Dish £13 / Matalan Fragrance Candle Set £6

I'm also really liking the look of the Watercolour Floral Cushions from Matalan. They're pretty but not too in your face and they'd fit in well with our colour scheme in the living room. I'm really struggling with storage for my blankets and bedding right now because literally every spare space in my bedroom is filled to the brim which is why I'm planning on buying some new storage baskets or boxes to store things away and the Next set of 2 Wicker Effect Baskets I came across are definitely in the running. I really want to buy the adorable Bee Trinket Dish from Sass & Belle! I definitely don't need anymore trinket dishes as I literally have at least 10 right now but I think it looks nice and it also looks a lot more expensive than it really is. Although I'm more of a wax melt user in the summer as I find they don't give off as much heat and also because I like using candles when it's cooler because of the cosy vibes they give I think the Matalan Fragrance Candle Set is a bargain for £6. I find Matalan candles always give off a lot of scent without being overbearing and they also look presentable too.

Asda George Pink and Grey Geometric Duvet Set from £10  / New Look 2 Pack Multicoloured Ombre Tumbler Glasses £6.99 / Matalan Floral Arrangement in Glass Vase £10 / New Look Pink Neon You Glow Girl Candle £3.99

I'm pretty sure I have a bit of an obsession with buying duvet sets (hence why I'm having storage issues) but I really like the look of the Pink and Grey Geometric Duvet Set from Asda George. The majority of my duvet sets are from Asda and I find that they wash and dry well and they're super affordable. New Look have some gorgeous Ombre Tumbler Glasses in right now, I know they're not everyone's cup of tea but I think they are a nice addition for the summer just to change things up a little. I also came across some gorgeous floral arrangements on Matalan so I thought I'd share my fave one in my wishlist. I can't believe it's only £10 and from the photo I think it does look pretty realistic too.

 Lastly is a little motivational candle from New Look which I thought would be a great addition to a room to add a pop of colour with it being neon pink. There was also some other slogan candles available too.
