Spending so much time at home is both a blessing and a curse. It’s nice to have the time to go through the drawers in the house that have been avoided for the last 5 years. It’s novel to dust behind every piece of furniture or to eat home cooked meals every day for a month. However there’s also the downsides to being at home constantly too. Whilst an hour out the house for daily exercise can help with the mental battle of lockdown, the sense of sameness persists.

Now, we’re not saying that a new mirror is suddenly going to make the new world we’re living in a breeze. It’s no replacement for friends and family who we’re all missing. However there’s definitely a moment of joy sparked by treating yourself to something lovely for the home. Filling an empty wall or cosying up the room with a rug won’t cost the earth but it will put a smile on your face.

Here’s 5 items to refresh your home during lockdown from our friends at Perch & Parrow…
