Guest Post (Sonia from Sonia Styling) – Summer Homewares Under $50

Happy Wednesday to my lovely readers… well today I have a very special treat for you. The gorgeous Sonia from Sonia Styling is guest posting for me. For those of you that don’t know Sonia, today is your lucky day. I have been following her blog and social media world for a while now and am totally hooked. She has impeccable style that is both fun, classic and unique as well as a great eye for decorating which is why I knew I had to have her come and do a post for you as I am positive you will love her as much as I do.

Below is a little bit about Sonia in her own words. If you aren’t already, you simply must pop on over and say hi to her on her blog, twitter, facebook or instagram. Enjoy!


Fashion lover. Homewares connoisseur. Wannabe writer/ editor/ stylist/ personal shopper. Styling me life, one story at a time.


When the warmer weather rolls in, it’s like a green light for us to start injecting a whole lot more colour into our outfits. Which got me thinking, why not extend the sunny makeover to our homes too?

I’m finally at the stage of decorating our home after a very extensive renovation and extension, which means a whole lot of furniture and decorating items that need to be bought!

While I wish I had a hefty bank balance (or a lotto win would come in handy right now!), the reality is that between the mortgage, bills, groceries, etc – there’s just not a whole lot of cash left to splash on homewares.

My tips? Do your research online. Check out chain stores like Target and Kmart – they’re (bargain) goldmines! And don’t forget good old IKEA, they have really stepped up of late.

So if you’re like me and wanting to decorate or redecorate, I’ve found 9 fabulously colourful items to add to your home in time for summer – and each item is under $50!


1. Fete Basket from Country Road ($49.95)

2. Hamptons Home Cushion from Adairs ($49.95)

3. Canyon Frame from Country Road ($39.95)

4. Hand Painted Bowl from Down That Little Lane ($14.00)

5. Orchid in a Pot from Kmart ($15.00)

6. Archie Cushion from Freedom ($39.95)

7. Metal Tealight Candle Holder from Target ($9.00)

8. Skoja Glass from IKEA ($1.95)

9. Set of 2 Peony Canvas from Kmart ($12.00)

What’s your decorating style? What items will you be adding to your home this summer?

    Hey! I understand this is sort of off-topic but I needed to ask.
    Does managing a well-established blog like yours require a large amount
    of work? I’m completely new to writing a blog but I
    do write in my diary everyday. I’d like to start a blog so
    I can share my experience and feelings online.
    Please let me know if you have any kind of recommendations or tips for new aspiring bloggers.
    Appreciate it!

    at this web site is really marvelous.

    You could certainly see your expertise in the work you write.
    The arena hopes for more passionate writers
    such as you who aren’t afraid to say how they believe. At
    all times go after your heart.
