Since moving house and making a fresh start earlier this year the decorating process has been an ongoing one. You can see previous posts of the process here, here and here. I've always had a clear vision for my new space and a definite budget which has meant splurging on a few things and finding some real bargains as well.
I'm now at the stage where I'm adding the finishing touches and as the budget is beyond stretched I'm trying not to be lured by shiny new things! So I was excited when Freedom asked me if I'd like a store voucher to shop their new collection. Yes please!
I had a good think about what I need and what would work in my space. My style is generally pretty eclectic and what I genuinely love about Freedom is that their range of furniture and homewares is on trend but also has enough breadth to work with different tastes and styles. I love that they don't do 'cookie cutter' products.
One thing that I really needed was a bookshelf in my bedroom. I have a lot of books. I'm trying to keep my apartment uncluttered and I was struggling to find a solution. Cue the Spine bookshelf.
Next, in my living room I was in need of a floor lamp. For me lighting is often the element I have the most trouble deciding on but when I saw the Studio I knew it was the one. I love it's tripod legs and utilitarian simplicity and at only $149 I would have bought it even without the gift voucher.
On to my verandah... I'd made some cushion covers for my outdoor seating, but the sun had faded them and they were looking a bit tired. I saw and loved Freedom's range of outdoor cushions then I discovered they are UV fade resistant, water resistant. Perfect. They work well with my vintage quilt, and in store they were styled with contemporary outdoor furniture and they also looked fab.
