We all have that one friend that has a beautiful home like something out of the pages of Hello magazine. I have two (Andrea and Libby). The kind of homes that are full of Feng Shui, beautiful art and quirky pieces. But not full of clutter, knick knacks or dust collectors.
Debenhams this week has its big up to 70% off sale. An opportunity for this Bargain Hunter to sit and trawl through pages and pages of money saving deals. I mean, what makes My Favourite Voucher Codes salivate more than shopping for beautiful objects online? It’s ones that have ‘70% off’ right next to them.
Let us walk you through the pages of our Hello Magazine spread with hot picks from the Debenhams Red Hot 70% Off Summer Sale.
Make a House a Money Saving Home
Lounge – Opulent homes are full of light and sparkle. They talk of a bygone era when “Downton Abbey” and “Upstairs, Downstairs” were the norm. You dressed for dinner, had tea in the drawing room and you enjoyed a gin & tonic on the lawn as an aperitif, not “prinks”. As a child I used to love going to my Grandmothers and using her old-fashioned phone, one with a great big dial that you had to turn around and wait for it to finish before the next number.
Well they say that fashion is just on one big repeat button, so for those full of nostalgia why not mix old fashioned phones with modern technology? Choose from the not so old push button style (yes children, it wasn’t all touch screen or real old-fashioned dial) available in 11 colours.
Even if you don’t have a phone line in your home it makes a great statement piece in your home. Why not take a leaf out of your mum’s book and instead of handsfree mobiles, pour a cuppa and sit and have a proper natter with an old friend? Crack open the rich teas because we are into using our free evening and weekend calls. “It’s Good to Talk, Bob”
Kitchen – Memories of days gone by are all well and good, but we aren't turning the clocks back any further than dishwashers, American fridge freezers or Spiralisers. But with shows like Bake Off and Britain’s Best Home Cook, baking like your Nanny did is still “En Vogue”, just with a few mod cons.
We are loving these pineapple themed measuring cups. What better than food themed baking tools? The slick and elegant white china fits perfectly with the minimalist hotel look. Coming as a set of three they have a cup, half a cup and a third of a cup all ready for baking. Their gold leaved tops make you think they cost a lot more than their £9 price tag (50% off).
Not much of a baker, but like the mention of aforementioned gin and tonic? Well…
- 1/3 cup equals 70ml (1.5 double shot)
- 1/2 cup equals 118ml (2.5 double shots)
- 1 cup equals 236ml (5 double shots)
Garden - On beautiful British days like we have today, it’s hard not to buy 10-piece rattan furniture set (it’s in the sale), a gazebo, a paddling pool – hell, we are looking at swimming pool brochures. Our advice would do no favours if we didn’t see you getting value for money and although our British weather may not leave you with warm memories, our money saving option for the garden will.
We are blessed with Daylight Savings Time from March to October every year. Giving us an extra hours light in the evenings if not a few degrees more. Make the most of light evenings despite the weather for BST with an over indulgent fire pit. Sit round with marshmallows and slouchy blankets on your knees putting the world to rights or just sit back and gaze at the stars.
Create an Upstairs Space that is Heavenly
Hallway – Maybe not the first place you think that style can reign in your home – but why not? Whether your hallway is only upstairs connecting the bathroom, or the first thing guests come through. You can guarantee that nearly every person that enters your home is going to be in your hallway at some point.
What says grace, glamour and gorgeous more than your very own chandelier? We took a Bargain Hunter poll and all of us agreed that our teenager dreams included chandeliers. Whether it was grown up parties in big ball gowns, home decorating or star-studded events. We all wanted a chandelier as teenagers and one day our own home would have one. We have chosen three of our favourites from the Debenhams Summer sale starting from just £60 with 50% off.
Bathroom – If you are an avid My Favourite Voucher Codes follower you will know how we love our office dog, Milo. We are a bit potty for the silly pooch. But not all offices, lifestyles or properties are made for a dog. Well Ben De Lisi is also a bit potty about his pooch with many of his home designs featuring his first French Bull Terrier, Ella.
His 1950s influence and minimalist style give us these three perfect items for the bathroom. Who has never wanted a dog themed toilet brush, toothbrush pot and soap dispenser. We would name ours voucher, discount and promo. With all three only setting you back £37.60 with 20% off you would be barking not to grab them.
Bedroom – Not everyone will see your sacred space but, in many ways, this is the most hotel like room for your whole home. Not to mention that this is your space that needs to be just right. We spent a lot of time looking through curtains, wallpaper and carpets. We ooed over lamps ahhhhd over cushions and simply swooned over throws.
In the end we went with sweet sweet dream and this water colour styled map of the world bedding. The classic white background screaks hotel chic with the muted colours allowing you gentle nights sleep dreaming of your next adventure or weekend away with the girls.Whether you’re still a single girl or full on king size this bedding has 20% off and is under £45 for all sizes.
Ensuring that Your Home is Fit for Wallet and Wonder
So not everyone thinks that their home will be complete with a pineapple and a couple of old dogs. The Debenhams up to 70% off Summer Sale has lots to offer all tastes and budgets. We would suggest you take some of that oh so consuming work afternoon to peruse for that perfect household item.
So, from the teenagers in My Favourite Voucher Codes we are about to chin chin with afternoon tea underneath our chandelier – ok Emily is just sticking the kettle on!
