This weekend, N and I visited the Cornwall Home Show to get some ideas for doing up our home & garden.
The weather was less than perfect, which was a huge shame for the outdoors exhibitors trying to show off their beautiful conservatories, patios and kit studios! Luckily, there was plenty of things to look at inside…
There was a huge mix of businesses there, selling everything from wood-burning stoves, solar panels, tapestries and lighting solutions.
So many beautiful things, so little money!
In hindsight, I think I knew everything was going to be pretty expensive and that I wouldn’t be able to afford anything. But it certainly helped me to prioritise what’s important!
I think instead of buying little things like cushions and rugs (no matter how beautiful!), I want to focus on getting our garden in shape, and possibly saving up for a nice stove for Winter.
The event is perfect if you’re looking at renovating your home, updating your kitchen, or wanting to add some quirky, vintage furniture to your space, and I think we’ll definitely be looking to come back in a couple of years time when we can afford to renovate our outhouse.
All in all, it was lots of fun for me (a home improvement enthusiast!) to have a peek around at all the beautiful things you add to your home, and all the awesome technology available now.
