When not writing about Westgate Lifestyle shops, one of the things I do, is write for gorgeous magazines about suitably lovely homes. Funnily enough, I have found there is a definite link. Some of the décor touches that provide me with visual delight in the lovely homes I am writing about are the same, or similar to, things that catch my eye in some of our Westgate Lifestyle stores.



I’ve been in a few homes lately that have white painted interior walls that provide a beautiful backdrop for lush green plants, rattan touches, earthy-hued furnishings and timber touches. As my selection of product indicates, these things are on offer in our stores. Check out the light fitting, the rug, the cushions, the baskets and the furniture, for example.

I have included a few faux plants too (there are many options) as one homeowner pointed out a cluster of lush loveliness in the corner of her airy open-planned living area. Why not include a faux plant or two in amongst those that live, she says? Why not indeed? It certainly looked great in her home. It’s also cool to get creative with storage. For example, the whitewashed crates and the baskets do more than serve a practical purpose – they look great. And if, like me, you are thinking your bathroom could do with a zhuzh up, sometimes investing in a new mirror works wonders. A new rug in your main living area or passageway provides the same magic. There’s a big buzz to be found in such small things, I find. So happy shopping, and may you also find things to delight.
