Update your home for summer for under £15

Bargain on-budget interiors, accessories and decor from the high street to refresh and update your home for the new Summer season

I absolutely love writing these budget seasonal update posts (mainly because it gives me an excuse to trawl through all the home stores!), and what with summer being my favourite season, I've really been looking forward to sharing this one!

This series of posts was born out of my love of changing things around in my home, and refreshing it a bit for each new season. However, I always keep this to a tight budget, so all my Summer 2017 finds are no more than £15.

It seems like this summer is all about vibrant, tropical items in Mediterranean-themed styles and bright colours - I've spotted so many beautiful bits that would be absolutely perfect for outdoor dining. So without further ado, here are my top bargain picks from the high street this season:


£5 or under

How amazing are those tasselled placemats?! I can just imagine jazzing up a BBQ with those, and giving your table and chairs a summery Morrocon makeover with those tea lights and serving dish.

You can't go wrong with some pretty outdoor lights (and why not some flamingo-shaped ones?!), but how amazing is that serving dish. Chuck some nachos and dip on there and you're onto a winner.

Anything tropical is still big news for this season, so I couldn't help but pick some bits featuring pineapples and cactuses. Also, what about some brightly coloured cushions to jazz up an outside bench, and how pretty is that Peony & Blossom candle and cloche? Perfect for adding some summery scents to your home.
