Summer is here in all its steamy goodness mamas and we couldn’t think of a better time than now to refresh our homes with a splash of colour and some new bits and bobs! If you’re on the prowl for unique, functional and most importantly, affordable home décor, then you don’t need to hunt any further than Crate and Barrel. We recently had a sneak peek at their new Spring Summer collection and were practically falling over ourselves to get our hands on some of their new goodies, so much so that we had to share our top picks with you!
Helping mamas create their own sanctuary at home, Crate and Barrel’s newest collection reflects their belief that entertaining and decorating should be happy and optimistic. Whether you’re looking to spruce up your balcony, garden, or indoor space, you’ll find the perfect pieces in this season’s new range. Dotted with bright colours, playful textiles, and a splash of intricate patterns, these guys even have kid-friendly covered, with many of their products UV protected, making them a cinch to clean and hardy enough to withstand the rigor of kiddie combat.
Here are some of our favourites from their new range…
(Aztec Chevron Paprika Outdoor Pillow: $59.95, Poppy Scroll Outdoor Pillow: $69.95)
Simple but stunning, we adore their new collection of bright outdoor pillows. Perfect for adding a splash of colour to any indoor or outdoor space, these hardy beauties will survive the worst of a tantrum induced pillow fight between siblings – and at reasonable prices too!
(Whisteria Lanterns: $49.94 – $89.95)
Warm and whimsical, these outdoor lanterns are perfect for creating a bit of mood lighting on your balcony… we just can’t decide which colour we want — maybe all three!
(Brant Turkish Tile Folding Chair: $499)
For the ultimate lounging chair (because every mama needs a chair to fall into at the end of a long day kid-wrangling) we love the look of this blue recliner. While it might be a tad on the pricey side, we can overlook the money factor for the sake of chilling out in comfort — hopefully with a cold drink in hand!
(Large Globe Light: $19.95)
Simple but oh-so-pretty these solar powered globe lights are the ideal accessory for your outdoor space — and they require almost no effort on your part either! Just leave them out in the sun all day and by the time dusk descends they’ll be twinkling and looking gorgeous.
(Set of 2 Steady Stick Wine Glass Holders: $19.95)
A cheeky addition we know, but if you roll these babies out at your next picnic, you’ll almost certainly save your glass of wine from any spillage disasters! While not technically a home decor item, it’s hard to resist something so darn practical.
So if you’re looking for unique and versatile home décor items and furniture and you want to start decorating your home on a reasonable budget with room for a few splurges, Crate and Barrel is definitely worth a look mamas!
