Top Picks under £10: February

Hi,

It’s already February (where is this year going?!) so it’s time for another Top Picks under £10. With Valentine’s Day just around the corner, love is the air, and it only seems right to have a floral and lace themed batch of bargains for this month.

So my favourite items I’ve scouted out, available online and/or in store are below. I’ve gone for girly, but rather than the typical pink and red, I’ve opted for magenta and white. I happen to love shades of fuchsia and magenta, white is a classic, and as we’re not out of Winter yet, I think it’s more appropriate than those pastel hues they keep taunting us with in early Easter displays.

My absolute favourite is that beautiful wallpaper in the centre (number 5). Although I don’t want to stray from my chosen blue and white colour scheme for our house, I’m so drawn to this! It’s beautiful, and such a statement. I’m a sucker for pretty things sometimes! I also think it would be a fabulous paper to decoupage with – it’s a fresher take on vintage florals and would make a beautiful, modern shabby chic dresser or similar, with the addition of white chalk paint. Although personally, I think I’d like it best simply on a wall or two. Throw into the mix some plainer pinks and purples, and clean white lace and textures and you’d have a superbly put-together look.
