Last week I was invited down to John Lewis in Eldon Square to check out their Spring home range. It couldn’t have come at a better time. Despite the full-on motivation to decorate the house at the start of the year, that motivation was starting to wane. I really needed some inspiration to put the finishing touches together for our new schemes. And this is where John Lewis comes to the rescue. You cannot fail to find inspiration in this Aladdin’s cave of a department store with amazing furniture, kitchens, bedding and lighting sections.
Spring Ranges at John Lewis
As the seasons’ change, so do the displays in the shop. Although the local stores take direction from the flagship in Oxford Street, each display takes into account the size and layout of each store. Schemes are built around key mood boards, with tastes for everyone catered for. Whether you prefer urban and sleek or a comfy country schemes. I loved the eclectic boho range and could see that cute elephant cushion in my lounge to bring some Summer holiday vibes into the home.
I loved this display of artifical flowers to bring outside in. How pretty? And no need for watering them.
John Lewis Kitchen Design
Meeting up with the kitchen designers was great food for thought. Although shaker ranges are still popular John Lewis have sleek modern designs too. With a full design process you can work to get the look you want within your budget. Clever design can make a small space look very big! So maybe I don’t need that extension after all?
Dining Room Inspiration at John Lewis
Up in the furniture section we could see the design styles come through in the dining areas. I love this scandi dining table with modern crockery. Just looks perfect for a dinner party.
Outdoor Furniture at John Lewis
Last stop on the tour was the outdoor furniture section in the basement. The biggest talking point of the night was definitely in this section! Just look how happy a load of bloggers are in this amazing summer house. My girls would absolutely love this! For the lower end of the budget there are loads of cool outdoor chairs in modern and traditional styles. Here you will find cool picnicware and comfy cushions to make the most of the summer nights.
