10 reasonably priced home interior sites

With Neil and I all penciled in for moving house in late May, it's just dawned on us how much basic furniture and appliances we need to buy... and that's before we even begin to plan those finishing touches that make a house a home. If there's one thing buying a home has taught me (bar the definition of LTV) it's that interior is my new found passion. I've always wistfully roamed the aisles of Home Sense, dreaming of owning my own home and how I'd decorate it all, but now I've found myself reading books about it and yep, forking out £4 a pop on Elle Decoration. That's dedication right there.

Here are a bunch of home interior shops we've got our beady eyes on for the new place. And some not too pricey either.

MADE.COM 

Contemporary pieces at a cut of the price. Made.com cut out the middle men and buy directly from the designers and makers, allowing them to keep prices low and the offerings excellent quality. Particularly reasonable for quirky chairs, sofas and lighting, I've seen a few floor lamps that will definitely be going in my basket.

Home Sense

A high street favourite of mine. We have a fairly big outlet in Brighton that stock tonnes of vases, kitchenware, photo frames, rugs etc, but I've heard amazing things about the Chichester store - they stock furniture?! (one day, one day) Home Sense is incredible for unique, low cost buys. I have big plans to make my own gallery wall and with the range of frames on offer at Home Sense, I know exactly where to go for a spend up.

Alexander & Pearl

I found this place as I was having a flick through Style at Home (fave mag ever at the mo). It's THE place to shop for that coveted 'industrial chic' we see in almost every new coffee shop that hits the town. I love the mix of iron and wood furniture, and the eclectic trunks. Not quite so appealing on the purse strings, but we're saving up for a sturdy chest coffee table that might come from here.

We searched high up, low down on our internet travels for a chesterfield sofa bed. Our new place is just a one-bedder so if we ever want our family to stay, a sofa bed is a must. Trouble is, I absolutely despise the look of them - they're so boxy with no character. I was considering sacking it off and having our ma's sleep on an air bed - until we found this gem. Chesterfields are the one thing I've long pined after, so we're doing it, and thank God Oldboot Sofas stock this beaut. Doesn't look like a sofa bed at all does it? 

For similar leather creations, you should have a look at Newman and Bright's Italian leather sofa range. Some stunning great quality pieces of furniture to be had.

Edited

This one's a local haunt, so apologies for all you non-Brightonians. I LOVE Edited. They sell a mix of retro soft furnishings and stools, and the most beautiful tapered candles that will make you never want to light them. Whenever I'm stuck for interior ideas or colour schemes I just click on their site and weep at their unusual home accessories, I want it all that bad. Fingers crossed they start selling more and more bits on their inspiring site - their shop is stocked with stunning bits and bobs!

Laura Ashley stock dreamy soft furnishings. This very photo pinched from their site will form the very replica of how I see our new room looking once I'm done with it. We'll be channeling the distressed white 'vintage look' furniture, with minty pastels and heaps of textured blankets and cushions. Maybe even some 'Grow your own lavender' that I was gifted for my birthday. Laura Ashley is my first port of call for the country look, thick knit blankets and fluffy cushions.

NEXT

Another high street fave. Of all 10 home interior places I recommend in this post, I think 80% of the stuff I buy for the new place will be from Next. I just got back from their mahoosive branch in Holmbush after spending an hour looking around for a sofa (but to no avail, boo) and a further hour choosing between all the reams of rugs, lighting, curtains, blinds they have, at such reasonable prices. Once we measure up the new place, we're hiring a car and driving out for a big spend up.

Urban Outfitters

One not many of us would think about for decorating the home, more decorating our wardrobes! But UO have a really trendy selection of colourful furniture and bedding that would add serious levels of photogenic-ness to a room. I'll be picking up home accessories like door mats, magazine racks and key holders from here - it's great for those little bits that add character to a space.

Emmie Home Interiors

Found Emmie mentioned in a magazine too. There are some really beautiful planters on offer here, perfect for brightening up a shady patio. I also particularly love the patio lighting available to buy. Lanterns can make a garden look much more welcoming in the summer nights with the odd candle here and there. For now, we'll be focussing more on decorating the inside of the place, but as soon as weather starts warming up I can't wait to feature garden projects.

Just wow at everything on this site. The patterned blankets, the 'Alice in Wonderland'-esque furniture and the stunning girly console tables. I've had my eye on a few hallway furnishings I can't choose between. People think I'm mad looking to spend £300 on a hallway table, just so I have somewhere to put my keys and letters, but I don't care. When they're as nice as this they're worth every penny! I'll just add that to my to save for list... eeek.

Can you recommend anywhere else to shop? I'm on the hunt!
