Chic Showcase: NEXT Home What’s New

Last week I was thrilled to be invited along to a lovely blogger event hosted by Next. Bloggers rarely get the chance to meet up in real life, even though we may become really good friends online, so it’s always a real treat to have that opportunity.

We were all mums too, so it’s even better when you’re invited to stay over and indulge in some gorgeous spa pampering, eating and drinking. I have to say, I think the Thalassotherapy Spa Treatment had to be my favourite, but the back massage runs it a very close second.

Bloggers love to chat, and eat cake, and there was plenty of this to be had on our little trip. And as phones weren’t really allowed, it was time to step away from social media for 24 hours too. Withdrawal symptoms? Well maybe just a tad.

One group of bloggers equals lots of photo fun!

A big thank you to Next for arranging our treat, and to Champneys for looking after us so well. The food, surroundings and treatments were all divine. And the company was excellent.

It has inspired me to look at the new Next home range and pick out some of my favourites for a Scandi feel Winter bedroom. Our own bedroom is feeling a little tired now (I think our Next curtains have been up for many years!) and I’m hoping to give it a revamp in the near future. I’m thrilled that the rustic Scandinavian look is still very popular, and even if you don’t want the whole room looking this way, you can still pull out individual pieces and bring them together with your existing decor.

I still have a bit of thing for Stag or Moose heads, so I’m rather pleased to see this one in the new range. It even lights up.

Take a look at my selections and do let me know what you think.
