As most of you know, I’m always on the hunt for affordable homewares and I firmly believe in bringing a space to life without having to spend a fortune. So today I’m excited to share some fabulous new homewares from The Reject Shop. The good news for you is the super affordable price tag of all of these goodies! I was blown away with their new range and I’m going to show you just how easy and affordable it is to create a beautiful space on a budget.
First up is this divine mirror which cost a grand total of $15! (Available in black, white and grey). I was torn between all of the colours but decided on white for a fresh look in our home (although for the price you really could afford to buy a few!). A round mirror is such a versatile piece to use in the hallway, above the bed or in the living room. I love an uneven gallery style wall and the mirror was a perfect choice to add to this.
WOW FACTOR ARTWORK
Next on my shopping list was some artwork for the walls and I couldn’t go past this amazing print for just $10! Black and white feminine prints are so easy to style and work really well against pastels. Artwork can be very expensive, so it pays to shop around and keep your eyes peeled for some affordable options like this one.
It’s no secret I love a good shelfie! Shelves are the perfect way to display all of the things you love in one place. I’ve outlined some tips on how to create the perfect shelf-
(1) Collect items that you love in a range of different shapes, sizes, colours and textures
(2) Bring together a combination of artwork, vases, canisters, teapots, coffee mugs, books, mirrors etc
(3) Decorate in odd numbers. For some reason I always lean towards grouping items in 3’s or on their own
(4) Add some greenery with a plant or a vase full of beautiful blooms to help bring your shelf to life
Some tips and tricks to styling your home on a budget-
(1) Affordable Artwork
I found some great frames instore so I picked up a gorgeous white one for just $7 and framed a page from one of my favourite magazines. Super easy and such a great way to add some interest to your walls.
(2) Think outside the box when it comes to decorating your space
– In the kitchen section I came across so many fab utensil holders which make super cute vases
-Canisters are perfect for decorating shelves as well as sitting pretty in the kitchen
-I even picked up a tea light candle holder in grey and timber (pictured above) which is the perfect addition to my shelf
-Another great find was this super cute pot in the gardening section (pictured below) which I picked up for $5 and I’ve just filled it with my favourite blooms
3. Hunt around for bargains
My biggest tip is to hunt around, do your research and look at shops you might not necessarily consider for what you need. I picked up this grey cushion (pictured above) which was an absolute bargain at $5 and the stripe coffee mug was only $2.
So as you can see, creating a beautiful space on a budget is definitely achievable.
