The new Laura Oakes launch with Debenhams

Other than books and shoes, there's nothing that excites me more than homeware. It's a little bit strange but I have Pinterest boards full of interior design ideas that I could never afford to do and I have frequently considered buying Good Housekeeping... and there's nothing wrong with that.

The Laura Oakes collection at Debenhams is pretty much everything I love; bright florals and even a jungle vibe for some pieces. Perfect as I live in a rented flat and can't really decorate so they'd go perfectly with a neutral home.

Just look at all the colours
The range consisted of soft furnishings, lamps and a whole plethora of other accessories, there wasn't a single thing I didn't like and for some of the pieces I was thinking of how I would use them and where I would put them.

The dish below for example would brighten up my dresser and would be the perfect thing to put all my watches proudly on display.

 And the mirror and candles below would make my bog standard Ikea furniture (that you see in pretty much every rented home) more of a pampering paradise. And it's beautiful.

Obviously, I have admired many homeware ranges but I found this collection pretty unique, the tiniest details have gone into the pieces and the cushions look more like a water colour work of art. I probably wouldn't want anyone to sit on it.

POP UP ART! My favourite thing!
I spent forever tyring to get a picture of this chair! 

 At the event itself, it was a perfect opportunity to finally meet some of the bloggers I follow and talk to on a regular basis. There were cocktails flowing that were created specifically for the launch, a treasure hunt and an opportunity to create your own Laura Oakes-esque scrap books. I missed out on this last bit though!

Both cocktails were delicious
If you're like me and are dreaming of owning at least one Laura Oakes piece, keep an eye on the Debenhams website.

What do you think of the collection? Let me know in the comments!

    1. I know right!!! I can only dream about owning the armchair though, you can't see from the picture as people were hovering around it all night but it has a leopard on it!

  2. What a cute Alice In Wonderland inspired collection. Love the vintagy touch and I think my favourite item would be the clock cushion. Do you know by any chance when the collection is out? xx
