So this is a bit of an odd one out. Interior Design is something I haven’t talked about before on What Defines Us, the simple reason being that I live in a rather small, furnished apartment that doesn’t allow much freedom of decoration. There’s no point in showing you guys how I live, as it wouldn’t reveal anything about the real me, which is a shame really, because I love to see how my favourite bloggers live – it can be such an inspirational experience to see behind the curtain, don’t you agree?
Anyway, there’s something about the end of a year (and my birthday has just passed as well…oh dear) that makes me reflect and re-evaluate basically everything in my life – every December I get the change ball rolling…why wait until January right? So once again I can smell newness in the air, so I thought why not speak about something new on the blog as well.
I must admit that I only recently found out that NEXT sells homewares as well as clothes, but what a pleasant surprise it was to discover the new spring collection at the NEXT Spring ’15 press day I went to in November – something I hadn’t expected.
The first thing I noticed was the huge array of incredibly stylish lighting solutions. If I had my own big house, I’d literally buy them all and scatter them around my humble abode. But the furniture and décor was in no way inferior.
From stripped back monochrome scandi-chic with a touch of North African luxe to romantic florals in a dainty colour palette of pistachio, green and lavender – NEXT will be offering us a huge selection of rejuvenating furnishing that will breathe new life into our homes just in time for Spring.
