I am a huge fan of Supermarket Homewares and Sainsbury’s has long been one of the favourite places to shop. So when I was invited to attend the Sainsbury’s SS17 Homeware preview, I needed to have a sneak peak.
Sainsbury’s homeware has been getting better as each seasonal range hits the shops. Quite a few of my own favourite interiors pieces are from this Supermarket homeware department. You can expect reasonable price tags and nod’s to current interior trends. Sainsbury’s is providing the every day shopper with something much more desirable than just groceries.

Now, I do love a good mood board. Its combines all of those thoughts running around in your head and Pins from Pinterest into one cohesive place. It sets the scene perfectly of whether your ideas will actually work together. So what was really great to see is that Sainsbury’s had set up various mood boards around the event. Its demonstrated how many pieces are versatile enough to fit in various schemes.
Sainsbury’s had also arranged for the fantastic London Florist RebelRebel to be at the event and kindly allowed those of us brave enough to make our very own floral crowns. I’m a bit of a bohemian girl at heart and take any chance to wear a floral crown (which sadly tends to only be at festivals) so I thought this would be a great chance to try my hand at something new.
My creation was described somewhat ‘very bold’ and very ‘Frida Pinto’ from the florist, but hey, I’m a bold kinda girl I suppose and I tried my best ha! It probably also didn’t help that I was sitting next to my blogger pal, Melanie Lissack aka DIY Queen. Note to self, never sit next to Mel when attempting any DIY or craft…
