What to Buy for your Home in the Sales this Summer

The sales have kicked in now so it’s time to flex the credit card and treat yourself to some new bits for the house.  This is the time when I love to get any bigger pieces that I’ve been lusting after, or add in some new accessories, particularly in the latest trends to existing room schemes. So, here are some of my top picks and favourite products in the UK stores currently. Have fun shopping and grab yourself a bargain.


It’s always worth a good look at the Habitat sale for some great bargains, and to be honest I could choose lots of different things here, but I’ve settled on this! I’ve had my eye on it for a while, and actually this scheme is providing some inspiration for my next makeover.

It’s the Orrico Rose Gold Hammered Aluminium Coffee Table, currently in the sale with 20% off at £180.

I love how it’s been styled with the dark greens, and the monochrome rug. I saw a review on the website mentioning that it didn’t look great against a dark wooden floor and I can see how that would happen. You would definitely want to put it on something paler to help it make the best statement it can. Gorgeous right?

Rockett St George:

I love a bit of Rockett St. George for their cool, sometimes outlandish nod to an industrial interior, and it’s always a treat to shop in their sale. Again, lots of pieces I could have showcased but my eye was drawn to this set of zinc planters. In fact I love them so much I’ve just bought them!

The set of 2 zinc planters with brass ribbon is currently reduced from £22.50 to £16 and I think they’re going to look amazing in my new dark living room. Just need to find some beautiful plants now.


I’m a huge made.com fan and have a few of their pieces dotted about the house. The quality is great and the styling is just my thing. I like that their model too, cutting out the middle man and giving us great designs are lower prices. You do have to wait sometimes for the orders to come through but that’s ok.

I’m showing you this Etruria Flat Weave Rug, in a medium size 180x120cms in Ash Grey and Chartreuse. It’s currently on sale at £139.

Rose and Grey:

Another great online store that I love. Curated collections ideal for a more industrial or quirky vibe but lots for everyone here really. And look what I found! If this was in a gold/brass finish I’d snap it up for myself but you might be looking for something in a silver finish anyway.

Statement Silver Sunburst Mirror reduced from £175 to just £50. A great bargain. 

John Lewis:

We can’t leave the sale round up until we’ve got a bargain for the garden, can we? So I found this cute little bistro set over on John Lewis which is perfect for the summer trends of adding colour to your garden.

Brighton Bistro Outdoor Set in Chilli Red reduced from £79 to only £55. I think that’s a great price and ideal if you want to brighten up a little spot in your garden where you can sit and enjoy a relaxing drink whilst the sun rises (or sets).

So there you have some of my favourite picks from the sales at the moment.

Have you spotted anything else? I’d love to know what you’re buying right now, so drop me a comment below and let’s chat.

    I’m more of a vintage shabby chic kind of girl, but I love the recommendations
