If you are local to Leicester, or just visiting, and want to shop away from the bustle of the main City Centre, then I would highly recommend Fosse Shopping Park (or just Fosse Park to us local Leicester folk). They have over 30 stores covering everything from beauty to fashion and homeware and they have several eateries too that cater for all manner of different tastes. There is even a beauty and grooming salon above the Superdrug. Plus, one of the best features of Fosse? Free parking!
I’m really lucky that I live very close to Fosse Park. It’s so easy for me to pop there for whatever I need. That’s why I’m delighted to work with Fosse on highlighting some of their top stores, and the pieces in that store as part of their S/S18 campaign ‘#springstyles’. From fashion to homeware and beauty, I’ve picked out some of the latest pieces, all available right now at the shopping centre.
So, first up was discovering the latest beauty trends at Boots, which you can read here. This second piece is all about homeware trends from Next Home at Fosse. Let’s take a look…
Rose Gold Reboot
Rose gold/copper is having another resurgence in homeware, and I for one am super duper pleased. There’s something so elegant and classic about the colour, and it would fit so well within all manner of different rooms in your house. From copper cutlery to vases, and even now small electricals like this fab copper toaster, what’s not to love about this shining shimmering trend?
Pretty Pom Poms
Pom poms just make everything so much better, don’t they? A sweet little addition to everything from clothing to accessories, and now they’ve made their way onto homeware. Next have some fantastic pieces with pom poms, particularly in their cushion and decorative collections. These grey knitted cushions are the perfect hybrid between staple and fashion, with the charcoal knit base and the sweet faux fur pom poms at each corner.
Last season it was all about the cacti, and now, unique artificial plants are taking the homeware trend by storm. From cheese leaf plants to aloe vera, there are a multitude of different types of plants to tickle your fancy that would look great in bathrooms, kitchens, and more. This little botanical stunner also comes with an on trend rose gold pot, and will look perfect with my copper kitchen!
Home Fragrance Updates
Home fragrance products have been around for as long as we can remember, but it seems that the surge in scented candles and diffusers has really kicked itself up a notch. No longer confined to vanilla scents and white plastic pots, you can buy home fragrance products in a wide range of different scents, and in all manner of different decorative coatings! These metallic reed diffusers smell divine in Midnight Patchouli and Amber, Vetiver and Tonka Bean, and Rose and Orange Blossom.
Hostess With The Mostess Accessories
I love a good dinner party. There’s something so lovely about getting your friends round and cooking. Admittedly my cooking skills are less than acceptable, and I usually get my boyfriend to cook the mains, but my presentation skills are where it’s at. I love a fancy napkin, a slate cake stand, and unique dipping bowls. That’s why I absolutely ADORE these small copper pans- PERFECT for serving up chips or dip in!
All products are from Next Home at Fosse Park.
