Well, I think I’m going to regain my little tiara for “pretty on the cheap” today because you can’t get better bargain buys for the home than this. I have to say, I have been more and more impressed with George at Asda over the last couple of years. Their items have become more on trend, more stylish and always super affordable.
So when they asked if I would be happy to put together a little Autumn living room post, I knew it would be a breeze. In fact, I had a hard time narrowing my choices. In the end, I decided to stick to a fairly neutral base, perfectly warm and textural for Autumn, with some fun bold cushions and metallics in the mix to keep things interesting.
While you might not want to change out all of your decor every season (I mean, that get’s pretty expensive), a change in a few accessories is always nice to warm things up after the brights and pastels of the summer. So incorporating some faux fur and heavier, darker pieces that aren’t going to break the budget are a great way to do this.
Keeping it a bit eclectic, I quite love that Phrenology head (I’ve wanted one for ages) and pairing it with an unexpectedly glamorous gold metal tray could be fun – with both priced under £20, you really can’t go far wrong. And I don’t quite know what it is about the Horse ornament – it could go a little old fashioned in the wrong hands but if you mix it with the right environment, I reckon it’d be a very cool touch of masculinity in a space. Grounding everything with a dark graphite sofa with tufting (for under £500!), there’s no reason why you can’t have a cool space even if you are on a tight budget.
Any favourites of what I’ve chosen? Have you shopped George lately? Are you as surprised as I am at the cool mix of items available? Do you make any changes to your decor when the weather turns?
