Home Sales: The White Company Edit

Decorating your home is enormous fun. It can also be enormously expensive. Unless you are now squinting at the screen, thinking ‘budget, what is this ‘budget’ thing?’ – in which we case, we salute and envy you – then you need W&W’s week of shopping the homes’ sales. Kicking off with one of our favourites: The White Company. 

New bed linen and new stationery: two things guaranteed to strike joy into our hearts. I am adding the Brittany quilts and cushion covers to my shopping basket as I type. The pom poms! The ticking backing! I want them! The patchwork Burford quilt and cushions have real charm – just the cushion would instantly cheer up your bedroom. It’s not too late to give your bedroom a blue-and-white-striped summer makeover – with the Portreath collection (40% off!) If you love a hotel-sleek-and-simple bed, there’s 50% off the Cadiz collection  – ditto the pretty Broderie Anglaise bedding (both now from £10). I love the classic Santorini (now from £31.50) with its ladder stitch detail. If you don’t own a mattress topper – can I persuade you that now is the time to invest (now from £64): I promise you it makes a difference. Whilst you’re there – do check out the children’s bedding: the Rose Garden is 40% off (now from £27 for a quilt), as is the Star print set, which would work in many a child’s bedroom.

Now is also the time to buy towels. (I don’t think I’ve ever paid full price for towels.) Replace those hard, oft-washed, slightly scratchy ones (or demote them to guest-only. Sorry guests) with a pile of softness. Egyptian cotton from £9.20? Don’t mind if I do. Although I might be swayed by the Salcombe Stripe… When it’s hot, I switch to hamman towels – light, easy, dry at speed, I can pretend I’m in Morocco for a brief moment (and not about to embark upon the madness of the pre school routine): get your hands on some from just £5.60. The classic Antibes bath mat (another staple in this house) also has 30% off.

I can’t mention The White Company and not mention fragrance. The glorious Rose and Iris collections (in their sleek, matt white casing) are reduced by 30% – choose from a diffuser (now £22.40) or candle (now £18.20) N.B. If you are one of those efficient people who buy presents in the sales – these would also make excellent presents, as would the White Pomelo hand cream (now £11.20). *TEACHER GIFT ALERT*

Sales are also the time to invest in zhuzhifying details (totally a thing). I love this 12 aperture frame  and you can never have enough baskets – this one is a treat. Your weekday suppers will thank you for new napkins: how about blue or striped? A new vase of flowers makes pretty much any room look better – and this one looks beautiful even when empty. I also want to hang several of these glass tealight holders around my garden on balmy nights. Who doesn’t need more space to hang things – those hamman towels on this wooden rail, perhaps?
