SHOPPING - Top Home Buys for July


1.  Metallic linen bedspread - Toast - Was £298, now £106.20

This gorgeous blue metallic bedspread from Toast is now available at a huge discount. Get set for Autumn early and save yourself almost £200 in the process. I love the soft, denim blue colour which looks great styled with country chic bed linen. 

I used to be a proper hi-fi geek and still think a great pair of speakers are super important for anyone who enjoys music. I recently threw out my old computer speakers which had broken and am currently plugged into my main amp and speakers. However, if I am to move my computer to another room I'd want a decent pair of computer speakers and this new set from Bose would be ideal. No need for a subwoofer and cler, natural sound is the claim and in my experience the brand delivers on its promises.

I love these quirky kitchen essentials available at Bouf. Choose from Platinum effect or ceramic in a range of fun styles. From an eggbox carton to takeaway tubs, they are full of character and sure to impress your guests or at least keep them talking.

4. Hey Diddle Diddle picture - Bouf - £50

I love pictures with words. I've got a great London map made up of place names in my flat and I recently spotted some more awesome word art pictures too. This one would be great for a kids nursery or as a present to someone who has recently become a parent. It features lots of different nursery rhymes, all laid out with cute fonts and graphics to bring to life that rhyme. I simply love it. There are more like this too including a horror movie one.

5. The House & Home by Lisa Stickley collection at debenhams

The new season collection has been given a style update and features great crockery and serveware in a palette of pastels, cream and red with striking polka dots and floral designs. My sister would absolutely love this stuff. Plus I've met the lady behind the range and she's just as lovely as the collection.
