Joules.

As the years have passed by, especially now I’m more settled with a boyfriend and a blank canvas of a house to slowly make into a home, I have found myself becoming more and more addicted drawn towards interior design and home furnishings. When I walk into a department store no longer do I make a beeline straight for the cosmetics hall & fashion floors, (I may swing by as I’m leaving but that inner make up & fashion addict of mine will always be a part of me), instead the home & interiors floor is the one that excites me the most these days.
One of my very first jobs was working for a fashion concession in the fanciest department store in my town and on the same floor was a Joules concession. Joules is a quintessentially British brand, their range is packed full of gorgeous pieces every season and I was always just the tiniest bit jealous of the Joules ladies who always came to work dressed so beautifully in their pretty tunic dresses and quilted jackets. With my very first pay cheque I bought the most beautiful striped dress that was perfect in every way and wore it almost constantly for about a year until it mysteriously disappeared after a weekend away. I really must replace that with a new Joules dress ASAP!

Imagine my complete delight when I learned that Joules were bringing out a bed linen range! I may have squealed a little. Remaining true to their love of prints, patterns, colour and detail the range is sure to be a huge hit with there truly being something for everyone.
LULU.
Lulu has a beautifully detailed floral pattern on one side & super chic stripes on the other, all in a gorgeous almost wedgewood blue hue. The perfect balance between fun and sophisticated has been found within this print, the stripes bring a sense of calm to the full-of-life floral.
CIRCUS.
Circus would be the most perfect addition to any little boys’ bedroom with its sweet vintage inspired print. The blue is rich but not too overpowering and the red stripes add that extra element of fun and a burst of colour. Primary colours look perfect together.
PIGGY CAT FARM.
Piggy Cat Farm is the cutest name with a sweet countryside farm inspired print to match, this one makes me want to throw on my Wellington boots and explore!  This would look so sweet in a little girls bedroom and the multi-coloured polka dots make me smile!
RIBBON STRIPE HORSE.
Ribbon Stripe Horse is perfect for every horse lover with a colourful stripe and simple but adorable horse pattern. The small pops of colour against a calm, crisp white background manages to keep things neutral but statement all at the same time.
ENGLISH GARDEN.
English garden is a simply stunning colourful floral pattern with a vintage edge; the colourful stripes on the reverse are a lovely addition and this would have been my dream bedding as a teenager, heck, it's my dream bedding now! Perfect in an all white room, with vintage inspired furniture and a rustic wooden floor! 
DECKCHAIR STRIPE.
Finally, Deckchair Stripe is my absolute favourite conjuring up sweet memories of time spent by the seaside. The stripe pattern is simple yet statement and this is the one that I think would look perfect in our bedroom. I know my boyfriend will agree, but if he prefers any of the other sets then I’m not going to complain because I absolutely adore each and every one!
DETAILS.
Lulu. // Circus. // Piggy Cat Farm. // Ribbon Stripe Horse. // English Garden. // Deckchair Stripe.
Each set is so perfectly detailed, packed full of beautiful colours, elegant patterns and a huge sense of fun and personality. 
Which is your favourite set? I'd quite like to own them all!

I actually had such a wonderful time writing this, it's inspired me to get back into playing around with words. Thank you, Joules!

  5. I think my favourite is the Ribbon Stripe Horse one although I wouldn't mind having all of them. I love the idea of a plain-ish duvet and a bright sheet. Ever since I bought my flat I have been doing the same thing and head straight to homeware and always here Carrie Bradshaw in my head "I have been cheating on fashion with furniture" hehe

  6. Oh gosh, these are all so perfect! Like you, I have an obsession with interior design, I can't help it, I'm always dreaming about what the inside of my perfect house would look like. I don't even live in my own house, I'm still at Uni, but still! I think the first set is my favourite, the flowers are gorgeous xx

  17. Oh my gosh, I love Joules! It's a tad out of my budget for clothes, but hopefully when I'm qualified I will be able to afford a lovely jacket or something.
    The bed linen is very exciting! I'm into interiors at the moment, mainly because I'm about to move into our first flat with my boyfriend :) He's quite fussy about bed linen (Jersey and Egyptian cotton only!) which makes it difficult to find cool/pretty designs.
