While having a mull over what to blog about this time, I found the answer staring me in the face. I was looking at Westgate Lifestyle product at the time and found myself repeatedly thinking “oh that’s beautiful”. And therein was the answer. Behold all these beautiful things! What made them even more attractive is that many stores are offering 30 per cent and 20 per cent off (in some cases, store-wide), and ifurniture, for example, has a Matariki Sale going on.



So, what was catching my eye… I always love a statement chair that offers a colour pop, am a sucker for gorgeous blankets/throws and rattan baskets, and I just have this thing about eye-catching light fixtures.  Then, of course, there’s the appeal of pretty pink things (so love that Briscoes bowl and the fact it’s priced under $10) and all things natural-hued (the green and tan round cushions at Bed Bath & Beyond instantly caught my eye). Back to the pink bowl (there’s a white version too) I think such things make a great gift when filled with chocolates, or little soaps, for example. As for the plant stand, that’s actually a two piece, at NOOD, I’ve been coveting that for a wee while – must be time to pounce!

It’s great, of course, if a beautiful purchase has a practical purpose, however, eye-candy just for the sake of it is allowed too as there’s something therapeutic about feasting your eyes on something that makes you inwardly smile. The world’s a crazy place at the moment, so it’s extra well and good if homebase feels harmonious in terms of décor vibes as well as family connections. On that note, wishing all families a wonderful Matariki Weekend.
