IT may have been around for a few years – but the blush homeware trend shows no signs of going away any time soon.
If you fancy adding a pretty rose hue to your place this autumn, then here are my tips for getting the look on a budget. You’ll be tickled pink . . .
Prime seat: Statement pink furniture is all over Instagram. I love Primark’s £24 velvet storage stool and matching £10 drawers. The stool is almost identical to Made’s £129 version.
Or buy some cloth and upcycle old chairs.
Amazon has a range of pink fabrics that are perfect for the job. They start at around only £6 per metre.
Save: £105 on stool
Soft spot: With the weather getting colder in the coming months, I’m investing in warm and cosy soft furnishings.
B&M has a two-pack of pink waffle cushions for just £4, down from £8.
Dunelm’s £8 teddy-bear throw is among the cheapest — and cosiest — I’ve seen in the shops.
Save: £4 on cushions
Heads up: A headboard can really change the look of a bedroom quickly and easily.
Very’s padded pink option starts at £119. But if you are crafty, you can make your own from wooden pallets, foam and material.
I’ve found foam on eBay for roughly £20, and luxe velour material for around £8 per metre. Bargains.
Save: Around £90 on a headboard
Top pots: To give your home a pop of pink, on the smallest of budgets, pick up Wilko’s £1.25 Candy Cane tester paint pot.
It’s a fraction of the cost of the full £12 pot, and you should have enough to paint a shelf, drawer handles or some photo frames.
Save: £10.75 on paint
Success-ories: Accessorise with cute pink trinkets. Aldi’s £2.99 Summer Sands candle looks just just like a Yankee Candle, which cost £19.99.
The Range also has other great pieces including a blush LED bottle, and a rose-gold hanging heart, for under a fiver.
Save: £17 on candle
Deal of the day
CLEAN up with the handy Saber 1400W pressure washer for £39.99, which is down from £69.99 at therange.co.uk.
ORDER one Goodfella’s pizza for £2.50 at groceries.morrisons.com and get a second free.
