We all love to treat ourselves but if you have a dog you’ll be the same as myself and get just as excited about treating your dog. Whether it’s seeing their eyes bulge when you give them a leftover roast dinner bone, treating them with a new toy or even a new comfortable bed. So for my first interior design project out of three that I’m going to complete over the next couple of weeks, is going to be a renovation of ‘Pet’s Corner’ which is an area of my front room that is space for Charlie, my Frenchie. Basically as you can see from the images above, it has just got his tatty bed and a couple of old toys in and what I’m looking to do by shopping at Homesense is renovate this area to make it a little more easy on the eyes.
I’ve been shopping at Homesense to improve three areas of my home that represents very good value, so make sure you head back over the next couple of weeks as I’ll be sprucing up my sofa as well as other small touches around the house to give you some inspiration to do the same. It’s amazing how you can transform an area of your home simply with one or two little items such as candles, cushions or even a throw, you do not have to spent a fortune and in fact Homesense offers savings of up to 60% compared to the RRP. Homesense are part of the TK Maxx family so if you have already shopped at TK Maxx Home you’ll absolutely love Homesense and you can find the nearest store to you here.
During my first trip to Homesense, I grabbed a trolley and was overwhelmed at the large variety of products that they stock, from everyday essentials to one off unique finds. The thrill of not knowing what I’m there to buy was great, it was a totally different shopping experience as I usually shop for something specific whereas at Homesense you could go in to buy a new kitchen set and leave with some dogs treats, candles, a wardrobe…my point is ‘anything’!
Okay so, as hopefully you’ll agree I’ve managed to transform a boring corner of my front room into something that is actually quite eye catching and homely – Charlie certainly approves! The area has been converted simply with a new dog bed, which because of its tonal grey colouring blends in better with my current interior design. I’ve also added a grey check throw, a wicker box for Charlie’s new dog toys and some scented candles to keep the area fresh.
All of which came to a total of:
3 x Dog Toys = £12.97
1 x Wicker Box = £9.99
1 x Dog Bed = £29.99
1 x 100% Wool Throw = £39.99
2 x Scented Candles = £8.98
Well that is the dog sorted and I’ve got loads of other Homesense homewares to start creating something special with. It would be great for you to also share you own Homesense finds and join the Homesense sharers by posting your unique finds or interior design using the hashtag #HomesenseFinds.
