Good Homes – John Lewis & Partners launches bedding range with Skinnydip

Skinnydip is known for its on-trend accessories and cute phone cases. Now, the brand is branching out into textiles too with its brand new range of bedding, available exclusively at John Lewis from 1st June 2020. This article from Good Homes highlights some of the key pieces in the new range – giving us a lot of bedroom envy.

With a range of bold prints to choose from, such as the monochrome ditzy daisy or pastel cherub print, this bedding collection has something for everyone and won’t break the bank either. It is going to be available in three sizes, single, double or king-size, with prices starting from £28. Our favourite piece has to be the ever-so fashionable palm print, blush pink combo. Palm print has been popping up everywhere in the home, from wallpaper to rugs and now bedding too. We can’t wait to get our hands on this duvet set and snuggle up in bed after a long day!

The article also gives us a sneak preview of Skinnydip’s upcoming pillow range too! We’re smitten with the red, heart-shaped ‘Heartbreaker’ pillow and can’t wait to see the rest of the collection. Watch this space…

Ideal Home – 32 Easy DIY projects and fun makes to do this weekend for every room in the house!

 This article is MEGA! Ideal Home has put together a whopping 32 DIY tasks that can be done at home this weekend. Now that we are in the tenth week of lockdown, we have done the more obvious jobs in our homes and are in need of some inspiration to keep us occupied. This article has some wonderful ideas, from simple tasks such as hanging photos, to jobs that will take some time, including painting the stairs and wallpapering the bathroom.

We love the idea of upcycling a chest of drawers into a planter; it’s a great way to use old furniture and would certainly make a statement in the garden! The spice rack hack is another one of our favourites. The article shows baby clothes hanging on an upside down spice rack and other items and accessories placed on spice racks the right way up! If we’re feeling a little more daring, we might even try some paint effects, as suggested in point 14 of the article. We’ve seen patterned door frames become a growing trend recently and we love the idea of taking this further and adding a funky pattern to the walls too.

The best thing about this article is that it includes ideas that we had genuinely never thought of before. From painting old frames, hanging them on a garden wall and and filling them with plants, to building a living plant wall, Ideal Home showcases some truly innovative projects. If we didn’t already have a to-do list for this weekend, we certainly do now!
