Home refresh with John Lewis

John Lewis home

When John Lewis offers to send you vouchers to pick some homeware goodies to share their Copenhagen range, you say yes please! We haven’t really done anything to the flat lately… we are waiting for a builder to be available as we’re planning a bit of wall-knocking-down, which is quite exciting. But in the meantime it was nice to select a few new accent pieces to give the living room and bedroom a bit of a new look.


John Lewis created the Copenhagen edit to highlight products with that lovely Scandi mix of warmth and texture but with a clean and minimal finish. Modern monochrome sits alongside natural woods and calming neutrals. My whole flat is in this style already, so it was great to pick out some complementary pieces.

In the living room, I chose a new table lamp to replace a tired old Ikea one, which perfectly matches the greys of our sofa as well as echoing the tripod shape of the Tu floor lamp in the corner.

I’m keen to add a bit of graphic monochrome to sharpen up the look in here, so picked the Copenhagen cushion.

For the bedroom, I picked a new duvet set. It’s a lovely silky cotton, and two-sided so you can switch it up.

I also chose the Devon lamp, which throws lovely shapes across the room when lit and matches our tree wallpaper perfectly.


Here are some more of my favourite items from the collection. What would you pick?

        And the lamp is 50% off on the Sainsbury’s website! Just bagged myself one, so lush.

    I absolutely love this style. I was actually pretty shocked at how much cheaper some of the items are compared to the usual john lewis pricing. I think I may have to get myself over there and pick some stuff out haha!
    Have a great weekend!

    I have so much decor envy right now! This range looks beautiful, I decorated my bedroom in a Swedish-inspired style a couple of months ago but might need to make a few additions ;) Thanks for sharing! Kath x

    I really like that golden yellow color against the gray scale color palette. It creates such a warm and contrasting room.

    I also really like the art work behind the new table lamp, it reminds me of norwegian rosemaling!

      It’s a papercut by Rob Ryan :)
