Top Picks under £10: January


I was inpsired to create this month’s Top Picks under £10 by Pantone’s colour of the year 2016. This year, they’ve gone for two colours – Rose Quartz, that beautifully soft peony-pink blush shade, and Serenity, a pale, almost cornflower hued blue. You can read all about the colours and other shades they work with and the effects they can create here

They’re both much lighter and fresher shades than Pantone have suggested in recent years and I’m a fan of both. It’s definitely a warm welcome following the rich reds and golds of Christmas, and reminds me of some of the beautiful sunsets I used to see when I lived by the coast in South Wales. Whilst they’re colours I may not incorporate into my decor this year, they will most likely make an appearance in my wardrobe and other non-decor related items.

If they are the colours for you and your home, here’s my top nine, priced £10 and under for all you bargain hunting home makers out there.

Rose Quartz & Serenity Mood Board

1. Canvas Cushion Cover – H&M – £3.99

2. Take Me To The Ocean Wall Art – Primark – £3.00

3. Arv Bowl – Ikea – £2.00

4. Fabrina Bedspread – Ikea – £6.00

5. Pink Peony in Silver Vase – Wilko – £6.00

6. Large Blue Flower Burst Vase – The Range – £5.99

7. Chunky Modern Wall Clock – George at Asda – £8.00

8. Chambray Solar Cushion Cover – Dunelm Mill – £3.99 (reduced from £4.99)

9. Rose Bud Boxed Candle Glass – Wax Lyrical – £6.50

(All items available and prices correct at time of publishing)

In fact, I’m really tempted by the bedspread and vase.

There’ll be another Top Picks under £10 in February, and hopefully a Dunelm Mill haul to show you very soon.

Let me know in the comments how you feel about this year’s Pantone colours, and whether or not they’re something you’d use in your home.

For now, with love,
