Interiors-enthusiast, Jen Connell helps you master a glamorous, eclectic look for your home this summer with 15 beautiful interior buys.
It's often difficult to find elegant, high-quality pieces to add to your home online or on the high street. We all love to try out a trend but also want to be clever about our interior investments to make sure the quality will last the test of time.
I've compiled a list of gorgeous furniture, lighting and accessories for every budget.
1. Monsoon Home - Small Diamond Tufted Wool Rug £150/€171
I'm loving Monsoon Home's latest eclectic yet glamorous collection - created from artisanal furniture, handcrafted textiles and timeless materials like marble, wood and brass.
It looks as if their collection was handpicked from years of global travelling and market treasure-hunting - without the hefty plane ticket prices. Just look at this gorgeous wool rug. Soft underfoot and beautifully neutral, this will add a sense of well-travelled glamour to any interior.
2. Monsoon Home Chest of Drawers £750/€854
I love the craftsmanship of this chest. It has the air of something you would haggle over in a Moroccan medina.
3. Monsoon Sequin Belly Basket £35/€40
This is the perfect blend of natural materials and sparkle. I'd use it to house a potted palm plant or for that dreaded living room clutter like toys and remotes that always seem to multiply!
4. Heatons - Garden Essentials Wicker Twin Cushion Chair €178.80
I have to say, I was pleasantly surprised by the range available in Heatons this season. Here we have a very reasonably priced wicker loveseat that would look just as good in the kitchen as the garden.
5. Heatons - Stanford Honeycomb Jar €3.20
I can't resist a gold accessory and this chic jar would work well as a vase or candle holder.
6. Heatons - Stanford Home Eucalyptus Stem €2.40
Faux sprays are a great way to add green to your interior without having to worry about wilting. Eucalyptus has a naturally elegant shape that works well alone or mixed with big blooms such as peonies or roses.
7. Marks and Spencers - Dexter Table Lamp €135
M&S have really upped their lighting game of late. I have to admit I ordered two of these table lamps for my own bedroom. They're the perfect mix of mid-century glam with Parisian boudoir chic.
7. Marks and Spencers Puerto Chandelier €199
I love glamorous lighting that doesn't take itself too seriously. These pineapple chandeliers are a throwback to the fun and eccentricity of Hollywood Regency but don't compromise on sophistication.
9. Marks and Spencer - Hexagonal Shelf Mirror €199
This geometric mirror would add polish to a dressing table or bathroom. The shelf is ideal for displaying prettily-packaged beauty products.
10. Dust - The Flapper Stool €140
Fringe is most definitely having a moment and this rose-pink velvet stool is reminiscent of glamorous boudoirs of the 30's.
11. Dust - The Gatsby Pendant Pink €495
A more modern take on the fringe trend, this incredible light is a collaboration between Masquespacio and Houtique. The 'Wink' pendant light, inspired by a winking eye, made waves at Maison Objet in Paris this year. I'm saving my pennies for this beauty!
12. Dust - Golden Mirror €495
Sometimes simplicity is the perfect compliment to an otherwise eclectic space. The gold tint on the glass adds just the right amount of interest.
13. Woo Design - Proud 3-Seater Sofa €1,449
You can't go wrong with royal blue velvet and this sofa is both beautiful in shape and comfort-level.
14. Woo Design - Amazing Antique Brass Side Table €89
A well-priced, brass side table is hard to find and this unique piece would serve well as a bedside table or alongside a cocktail chair in your living room.
15. Woo Design - Bowl Rattan Hanging Chair €549
As it's nearly summer, you're probably tired of hearing about rattan furniture, but this hanging chair sets itself apart from the rest. Now, all we need is some sunshine!
