We’re well ahead here at HomeSense. The team was out shooting the Spring campaign just before Christmas. Luckily we got a beautiful, crisp winter day with blue skies and great light for shooting stills.



Spring is in the air (even in December)

Location, location, location

Our production team found a great location in Kent. A wonderful old farmhouse with several outhouses and greenhouses to shoot our Spring product.

Meet the team

Here is our wonderful creative stylist Abigail and her lovely assistant Anita.


Here’s Anja our willing and able producer and her gorgeous assistant Boris.

It was ffffrreeezing out in the garden sheds without any heating. Might look like Spring but the weather didn’t feel like it.

Have a wonderful summer of love!

And happy wedding bells to my friend Laura xx




Wedding treats with a difference




Ooooh I know it is nothing to do with homeware but I love it!




Wedding gifts with ding dong.  Check out our website at




There are hundreds of wedding presents with a difference at HomeSense.

We don’t want you to give the gift everyone else is giving.




I’m a fan of simplicity for an invite.




So with all these weddings this summer, what is the etiquette on buying a pressie?

There’s something not quite right about giving cash, however they don’t want to end up with five magimixes.

So what should you give to thrill the bride and groom?




I recently got engaged and lots of my friends are getting married this year.

There must be something in the air!


Al fresco with a difference

A picnic with a differenceOutdoor living is becoming ever more comfortable. Instead of knee-grazing bistro tables and spindly metal seats, think woven furniture and terrace cushions.

Quirky outdoor picnic shabby chic old fashioned traditionalEating outside has never been so fun. Take inspiration from Brideshead Revisited and Jane Austen classics. You can find unusual outdoor furniture and picnicware at HomeSense at up to 60% less. Make your garden unique this Summer.

I had lunch in the garden today too. This picture reminds me of my favourite hotel where they know how to eat ‘en plein air’ in style. The tasteful simplicity is what makes La Colombe D’Or one of the best destinations.

Pretty ideas

Yesterday I was discussing the flowers that I want for my wedding (I’m getting married next March and already planning the flowers). I think this an adorable idea for displaying flowers. I think I would rather they were on the tables in odd old washed out bottles though. Love the eccentricity. Did you know that Homesense has over 100 styles of vase instore?
