homely details : up for a challenge!

Well yeah! A couple of weeks ago the ever so lovely Helen invited to take part in Most Wanted's Autumn Home Styling Challenge. The idea of the challenge is to re-style and update a room without having to go so far as redecorating or even touching a paintbrush. That is to find some gorgeous items from around the web to spruce up said room and get it ready and perfectly cosy for the autumn. The only catch being that all those gorgeous items need to be under £50.00 as Most Wanted is the lifestyle magazine of VoucherCodes.co.uk. One of those clever money saving websites that brings together discounts and voucher codes, for all kinds of British retailers, in one handy dandy and easy to find place.

So of course you all know how much I love to find pretty things and co-ordinate them together in one happy collection of loveliness! Also, I especially love the idea of sticking to to the £50.00 budget, as quite often I'm also on a tight budget when it comes to home decor delights. So without further ado my wee collection of loveliness, inspired by one of my all time favourite colour pairings - aqua and mustard! I think this palette is perfect for the autumn and winter as it has a lovely rustic warmth. I'm sure you'll agree that you can't help but feel cosy with these lovelies sprucing up your living room!

What's more, most of the lovely items I've picked out here are handmade! Seriously, could there be a more encouraging reason to support and buy handmade!?

Wishing you all a very cosy day!
Emma, x

  3. Love these, especially the colour palette you've chosen ( I went for more traditional reds/browns in my collection). Always interesting to see other people's picks.
