The New George Homeware Range You Need To Know About

IMGP7178

I am ALL about the budget homeware.

Like, I could happily run a blog that just revolved around under £50 home essentials, except like, no-one would read it because you guys seems to like lists and things about quarter life crisises and over the knee boots and Primark. So yup, there’s that.

Anyway I managed to take some photos of my front room with some new pieces from the AW15 range at George and they make my soul feel happy. I won’t lie to you, as I was editing these snaps and giving them a bit of a brightness because hello dull autumn day outside, I got a bit overwhelmed.

Like, THIS is where I live. These are photos of my home. I did one of those pauses where I had to stop and remind myself of how far I’d come, at how excited past Hannah would be about present Hannah’s home.

Sounds lame, I know, but sometimes stopping to acknowledge your progress is the only thing that’ll snap you out of a weird WHERE IS MY LIFE GOING mood, and today, these photos did just that.

They made me happy with my lot and made me stop constantly going BUT WHAT’S GOING TO BE YOUR NEXT ACHIEVEMENT, HANNAH? over and over in my head.

But anyway yeah, the show-stealers in these photos are undoubtedly the terrific blogger cliché pieces from George (available online here and in Asda stores, obvs) – the copper vase and candle holder, the cute ceramic pot, the light-up star and the engraved letter holder.

Hands up, I was sent these pieces to review, but as soon as I saw ’em I knew I would have added them to my online basket anyway, so there’s that. (Chris and I have been eyeing up a letter holder from Homebase for months that is only a fifth as nice as this one, so THANK GOD this copper beaut came into the world).

And also, the star light. I’ve been trying to convince myself we needed one of these in the house for about a year but Chris says I have a problem with lamps and he is wrong. I just like chill mood lighting, alright?

Like, how nice is it to relax in the evening with a boxset and soft glow of lamps and candles and a sea of blankets? Right, RIGHT?

(I’ve just moved the old lamp that was in this spot onto Chris’s bedside table so I cannot wait to see how upset he gets about the change. Boys, lol.

Anyway, everything featured here is from the new Luna range which is inspired by all things Nordic. And basically everything in it is either copper, marble or covered in lashings of fur which makes it all so Instgrammable you might get social media heart palpitations.

(This is totally how I expected Stockholm to look when I visited last year, but alas no. Although the airport did. The airport was seriously something sexy. Maybe I need to head further north towards like where Durmstrang is allegedly based to find more of this kinda thing.)

I would never really say my interior (or fashion) style is particularly Nordic or Scandi, but I love how low-maintenance and effortless these pieces are. I think they go with pretty much anything and can be incorporated into any existing room – they probably help to pull all my random photos and plants and prints and life rubbish together in a way which doesn’t make your eyes hurt.

These are my first, and no-one do a sick on me, pieces of copper homeware. I know, I know, such a rubbish blogger, eh? But I’ve always had a thing for brass and gold and just felt like suddenly adding another metal into the mix would be OMG WHAT IS SHE DOING, SHE’S LOST IT, SHE’S MENTAL, a bit like when you wear gold jewellery but your bag has silver hardware. But nah, I quite like the overall effect – it stops it looking too fake and put-together and instead feels homely and lived-in.

GOOD WORK GEORGE.

Pretty much everything in the range is under a tenner too (aside from the lamps because well, lamps always cost more) and so it won’t even make your bank account look a little hollow and empty even after a hearty splurge.

Anyway, just thought I’d give y’all the heads up. Everyone likes to find cute home staples that cost less than a night out, especially when they’re from somewhere outside of the H&M/Tiger whirlpool. Lolz.

Copper vase – £5 / Ceramic jar – £4 / Star lamp – £30 / Copper candle holder – £7 / Copper letter holder – £10

Not from George… Cactus pots – Anthropologie, £3 each / Crate – NotOnTheHighStreet / Cat print – Etsy / Blankets – various / Cat frame – made myself at a new Look press day

  • I love these pieces and your home looks lovely! ALSO THAT PILE OF BOARD GAMES. So much envy right now!

  • Becky

    OMG I literally want everything here. We bought our first home back in June, while I’ve painted and furnished the living room in dreamy luxurious greys with a fabulous feature wall … it feels a little soulless. We’re not clutter people and deffo love the simplistic Scandi style… but I could totally add a few of these things to make it ours — Plus our fireplace needs some love to make it the cosy, autumn/winter feature I imagined it to be when we were buying.

    Goodbye pay packet! 🙂

  • I am all about all things copper right now so this is right up my street. Good ol’ George for being great AND inexpensive. What more does a girl want?! xx

  • That star light is beautiful, I absolutely need it in my life!!

    Also, I love that you have a massive pile of board games!! Girl after my own heart. Although, you should totes add Articulate to your collection, it’s so much fun!

    • Going to completely agree with Dani here – can’t believe you have some classics, but are missing Articulate?! Alice xx

      • I am so sorry girls! We have a family copy at my dad’s house but maybe it’s time i invested in my own… especially with Christmas lurking around the corner xx

  • I love the little copper vase but it’s sold out online – boo!! There are some other amazing pieces in that range, I will thank you for bringing it to my attention, my bank balance won’t! Look how welcoming and cosy and lovely your living room (or at least, that wall of your living room!) looks! Alice xx

    I LOVE George homeware plus I’ve just bought a house so I’m totally justified in trotting down to asda and buying all these things!

  • I have just placed an order for the some pieces from the Luna collection George are killing it this season. Also love how cosy and homely your house is.

  • i’m all about the faux wolf skin throws in the AW15 collection. Total game changer. I died and went to fluffy heaven and only for £25!

    • I really, really, REALLY want one of these but we currently have 8 blankets between the two of us. Justifiable, right?

  • Have added a few of these to my shopping list!

    Where was it you got the portrait of Rudey done? I’m thinking cat portrait would be a good present for my sister! Thanks!

  • Such cute pieces! Also love how many board games you have stacked up. My boyfriend and I are waaay to competitive to have that many games in our home.

    Hi Hannah,

    Love your blog so much, and these pieces from George are fab!

    I hope this isn’t construed as criticism as i honestly can’t wait to read each one of your posts, however you think you have far too many of the same images in this post, every photo is virtually the same just from a different angle. I would suggest less pictures to captivate your audience x

  • I love home decor posts, I did one today on my latest Homesense finds – any excuse for more candles and jars. Do all the home decor, lists about home decor even 😉

  • George home stuff is amazing! I’ve got loads of their bits already but this post makes me feel like I need more – like that bargain copper vase! Your home is lovely and cosy looking, I like that it’s minimal but still homely! x

    Josie | Sick Chick Chic

  • I so need that cute light up star!! Fallen completely in love with it! X

  • That portrait of Rudy is just the best!

  • CAN WE TALK ABOUT YOUR COLLECTION OF BOARD GAMES THOUGH! X

  • That candle holder is so cute and I’m so envious of your board game collection!
