Houseplants are an absolute staple in home décor and this style statement shows no signs of disappearing any time soon. I, for one, am over the moon about this, as houseplants are taking over my home!
However, I wonder if any of you fellow houseplant lovers are familiar with the following scenario as much as I am?

It was love at first sight – through the empty, bland, magnolia rooms; I could envisage my ‘New York City’ style apartment taking over the lower level, and my ‘fit for a princess’ girly haven, taking shape upstairs.
So that all seemed well and good, until my bank account emptied itself almost overnight with deposits, solicitors fees, stamp duty, insurance… I won’t bore you with the never ending list.
The realisation sunk in that I wasn’t about to become Oliver Bonas’s best customer, however after a near diva strop, I soon realised that I could still make it look like I had envisioned.
Charity shops don’t just have hidden clothing treasures, they also have a heap of fabulous home bargains, that I guarantee will give any room that magic sparkle without spending a fortune!
