Summer Home Refresh For Under £30 | Little House in London

We’ve focused a lot on changing our fashion style for summer, but that doesn’t mean we are forgetting about refreshing our homeware style. As the days get longer and the sun makes more of an appearance, altering our interior to more light, seasonal designs is often top of mind. But it doesn’t have to be expensive: Amy Davies Pereira of Little House in London is on the blog to tell you how you can refresh your home with stunning pieces for £30 or under.

“With Summer fast approaching, it’s not only the garden that needs a bit of a attention. It’s also great to have some bright, bold and botanical themes in the home. I’ve rounded up some of my favourite home pieces for £30 or under, focusing on two key trends; Botanical and Summer Brights. From bold leafy designs to striking block colours, these two trends are sure to add an instant and stunning Summery aspect to your interior.

All of these items are available with CollectPlus click & collect at a location convenient for you, great if you’re out and about all day. I’ve selected items from John Lewis, House of Fraser, Marks & Spencer and Very. CollectPlus work with over 350 retailers and have over 7,000 locations across the UK, which are convenience stores, petrol stations, shopping centres and supermarkets which are all open early until late.


I’ve featured striking leaf patterns and block bright tableware that’s sure to be the focal point of any dinner party or family meal. Try mixing and matching with your existing crockery which is great for the patio or indoors. And then why not treat yourself to some faux or real plants or flowers as they can instantly transform a dull corner into something wonderful.

I’d recommend changing your bedding to suit the seasons. Pick bright bold patterns to brighten up a bedroom, or try soft organic designs for a more relaxing feel. Lighting is so important in every home so why not drape some fun fairy lights around a mantle or headboard. Candles not only give off a wonderful glow, they can smell amazing too. When looking, find floral scents that truly bring the outside in.
