Hello there! It's been a while since I've done an interiors post, hasn't it? They're something that I really enjoy putting together, so I thought I'd better get back on it. So, today is aaall about one of my homeware favourites... Matalan! I have a few go-to shops and websites when it comes to buying homeware and Matalan has long been up there. When I moved into my first flat (many, many moons ago now... realising now how old I'm getting) my Mum took me there to pick out some bits to brighten up my room. I ended up leaving with half of the pillow department and enough mugs to keep a family of 10 happy. And thus a long-standing love affair was born.

What I love is that everything is so well-priced without looking at all cheap or poorly made and you always, always find unexpected gems. One of my favourite finds as of late was this little patchwork stool that you see - I found a very similar one last year in a different shop, saw the £350 price tag and swiftly put it back and pretended I had to leave to make a train. This one - wait for it - is now in the sale for a glorious £85. Let's all rejoice! It's the best little living room addition for brightening up empty corners and comes in verrrry handy when you want to prop your feet up watching tv. Another favourite is this copper lamp which, again, comes in at a lot less than it looks. It's one of those things that I can't stop staring at because I like it so much, I think I'm actually starting to make it uncomfortable. Then of course we have the LED letter lights which I've wanted for SO long after seeing them in the breakfast room in the Artist's Residence hotel. They're amazing aren't they? Possibly a little narcissistic to have your own initials lit up in giant font, but I'm ok with it if you are. I'd love to get some for the kitchen that spell out 'COOK' next, and maybe some for the bathroom that spell out 'BOG', Just kidding about that last one. And last but not least, a couple of little additions, the ones that are always the fun parts to shop for - candles and mugs. I couldn't leave without a mug could I? As you may have noticed, I'm very drawn to colourful, Morroccan themed items (which is 100% down to me Mam) so as soon as I spotted the orange candle I knew it had to be mine.

You may also have noticed a particularly amazing slogan jumper that I'm wearing, and we aaaall know how much I love a slogan jumper. This one's a wee dream to wear as it's so, so comfy and slouchy and really lovely and warm too. Just everything you could ever need or want from a jumper! I paired it with these fantastical brocade boots which, again, I couldn't believe were Matalan. I kind of like the way they look balanced on the stool and, although I know better than to have boots as an ornament, I'm very, very tempted.

And there we have it - go Matalan, huh? I couldn't actually be more in love with any of the bits, they really do always deliver. I hope you like 'um too, leave me a wee comment and let me know what your favourites are! I've said favourites plural because I'm not going to force you to narrow it down to just one.

Post in collab with my homeware favourites, Matalan. And thank you to my interiors-queen of a mother for helping my useless self style the living room!

Love your interior decorating skills Amy :) i never really considered Matalan for homeware but im definitely going to after this post, they all look so great and do not look cheap at all like you said.
