Myself and Toby have recently made the decision to start saving for a flat. Scary I know! This won't be happening for a few months yet but it's got me already thinking about homeware, one of the blogosphere's favourite subjects to talk about. I'm building up my Pinterest boards, bookmarking products and creating an endless folder on my laptop of inspiration. You could say I'm wallowing in a sea of Ideal Home magazines right now (and you would be correct).
Among the many homeware shops I've found, I keep clicking back to Esprit which is a shop I never thought I'd be so addicted to. The reasonable prices and vibrant designs sucked me in straight away, and it was actually through this rug that I discovered my love for this website. At the time, I also had no idea about the range of their products, from table runners to bathrobes and wallpaper to tea light holders, they've got so much to offer.
Despite all the products being right up my street, I've also been looking at their photos for inspiration. They've got loads of different collections from bright colours and patterns (as you can see in the pictures, my personal favourite) to more minimalistic designs. The one which I draw most of my inspiration from is their Urban Spring collection which is exactly how I would picture our flat: leafy prints, different textures and accents of colour. Like seriously, don't you love the leafy print wallpaper and the stripey blanket in the pictures? Drool.
So there you have it. My new found love, Esprit. If you're in the market to update your home a little then I'd definitely recommend checking out their homeware. They've also got some really lovely spring/summer pieces in the womenswear section as well which I've got my eye on!
