There is something quite serene about shopping in a Zara home store. Is it the beautiful smell of diffusers and candles that greet you as you walk in the door? Or perhaps it is because everything is neatly grouped together by colour tones which definitely helps to make my inner OCD happy. I’m not sure exactly what it is, but it is addictive and it pulls me in every time!
I had a stroll around London’s Regent street this week in the sunshine and was drawn into the Zara homewear store. I was inspired and just had to let you all know about the new items that are now available. I really like this particular store as it has the most gorgeous marble and gold central spiral staircase which spans over 3 floors.
The bed linen is one of my favourite things in Zara home and in the entrance way was a beautifully made bed with a pretty spring floral print in dusky pink and lilacs. I must admit that Zara bed linen is slightly more expensive compared to other stores on the high street, but they do have a higher thread count which is a sign of a better quality material.
Sometimes I feel that it’s better to spend slightly more on items that you know you will get a lot of use out of over time and new smart fresh bedding is an instant mood lifter. Zara do have great mid season sales though and you can often grab a real bargain on bedding when it has been reduced.
Top of my wish list was a duvet cover with matching pillow case set which is in a Versace inspired mosaic print. The print is a light gold thread and looks really classy. I also seem to have a thing at the moment for palm or leaf print designs and I came across the perfect set for a pretty spring bedroom look.
There was a new range of diffusers which I really liked. I have a slight obsession with these and love to have them around my home. Not only do they look smart displayed as an accessory, but they add a nice scent to a room and are particularly great for hallways.
Zara accessories are super affordable and they always have a great selection of different styles and colours. If you are looking for a photo frame or little decorative item you will definitely find something that suits your own home style. A good tip is to keep your rooms and furniture a neutral colour and then use colourful accessories to lift the room. This way, you can change your accessories during the year to give your rooms a new look. Fresh, bright colours are perfect for the summer months and rich jewel tones look great over the Autumn/Winter months.
