HOMEWARES - debenhams

I wanted to highlight this beautiful bird print spotted in Debenhams recently. This mid-century style pattern has a retro Scandinavian feel in cool blues and greys with mustard accents and is part of the Debenhams 'Home Collection' range. I spotted it in store on bedding and wall art but then found online that it was also used on cushions and in kitchenware items such as tins and teatowels. Here are some my snapshots and a selection of highlights from the Debenhams Retro Scandi range.

BEDLINEN - primark

I also wanted to highlight some bedlinen from UK budget fashion store Primark. Besides the modern funky prints these duvet cover sets stood out because they were not wrapped in plastic bags, just sitting on the shelves folded in a card wrap. Primark have also been running a collection of colourful stationery and homewares as part of a 'Back to College/Uni' promotion, so I couldn't resist picking out some of those too.
