Have you discovered our #sorealhomes Instagram community (if not, check it out @real_Homes, it's fab)? Just one of the way we're expressing our insta-love is by calling on the hottest homes' bloggers and Instagrammers for their insider secrets – from the best hidden gems to find a bargain to how to style every room in your home.
This month Maxine Brady, interior stylist and creator of welovehomeblog.com gives us the scoop on her favourite shops.
THE BEST SHOPS FOR UNIQUE HOMEWARES
And for bargains? ‘There are so many great places – Dunelm for cushions; Urban Outfitters for quirky rugs; H&M (below) for budget kitchen accessories; Zara Home for door knobs, dishes and platters, and candlesticks, then Tiger for colourful candles.’
The shop Maxine can't resist
‘HomeSense (below) for its bedlinens, and because I always come out with a cushion I don’t really need, but for £16.99, I can justify it.’
The best shops for furniture
‘Swoon (below) for all-round great prices and good furniture. Barker & Stonehouse for rustic vibes. Loaf for living rooms. The French Bedroom Company for the obvious. For luxury and shabby chic, it’s Willis & Gambier or Sweetpea and Willow.’
The best high street stores
Maxine's insider tip
‘Try buying vintage art from junk shops but get it properly framed.’
