Lunchtime Shopping Fix: 12 chic home buys under €50

If the pandemic has taught us anything, it’s that our homes are much more than just places to rest our weary bones at the end of the day. Our homes are our sanctuaries; they’re where we work, where we catch up with friends, where we chill out with loved ones in front of the TV. And having spent so much time there over the past few years, we’ve come to realise the importance of ensuring our spaces are decorated accordingly. 

Blue and white enamel soap dispensers, tasselled cushion covers, colourful salt and pepper shakers; anything that sparks joy gets an immediate yes from me. Oftentimes, when we think about upgrading our homes, euro signs start flashing before our eyes… but adding a little pizazz to your decor doesn’t have to cost a lot. In fact, a few clever purchases can have quite the effect. One new candle holder and suddenly that tired old bookshelf looks brand new. 

We’ve pulled together a few of our favourite chic home buys for your viewing pleasure, and all under €50 too. Shop our edit below.
