Laura Ashley is a gorgeous store that sells lots of feminine, glamorous, shabby chic and vintage style clothes, bedding and homeware. Literally everything in the shop is to my taste, although I do find some of the things to be a little overpriced, especially when shops like Matalan do offer similar items, like cream bird cages, etc for a much more reasonable price.
I recently popped into Laura Ashley to get a few pieces for my new bedroom. I managed to find some great bargains in the sales but I would advise you to buy online rather than in store as some of the items in store are still full price but they have 50% off on the website. As I found out when I paid £18 for this gorgeous picture frame in the shop, only to find that it is £9 on the website. Absolutely ridiculous but I do really like the frame and it is a style that I haven't seen before.
Its cream with a vintage distressed style and has two ornate hooks at the bottom to hang jewellery off or little keepsakes. I love it. When I decorate, I just want cream walls so that I can change my bedding, etc often with out it clashing and I want to accessorise loads with photo frames, prints and pretty things! So this frame is perfect for me.
To use as tie backs, I got these cute cream bow hooks.
To hang my dressing gown on the back of my door, I got these gorgeous cream hooks with glass style diamonds on the end. They're double hooks so Ill be able to hang up a few things on these, plus you get two in a pack so there is one for me and one for Michael.
I picked up a few decorative pieces of hang off my door handle, drawer knobs and hooks like on the photo frame. First, I got these lovely little fabric hearts that are like little cushions. These were actually in the children's section. They're scented so would be lovely to hang up or pop in my underwear drawer.
Then I picked up these two mirrored signs. One that's heart shaped with 'Princess' on and one that's flower shaped with 'Good Night Sleep Tight' on it.
