I really like BHS Home website, there are some quite wonderfully eclectic and cool things on there.
They asked me if I’d like to review one of their items. I didn’t have enough budget for one of the massive beautiful bed throws, and there was some gorgeous bedsheets, but super king size had run out!
I had a wander round the house, and had a good think about what I needed and then it came to me!
I bought an ‘on trend’ black and gold light shade for our bedroom and it just doesn’t go. Paul hates it with a passion and Miss L doesn’t like the light it throws out. But as I bought it 4 months ago I wasn’t just going to swap it out for a new one without feeling massively guilty. I checked the BHS lighting page and chose a beautiful duck egg, crystal lampshade which caught my eye. It was £50 so on budget too!
When it arrived it was possibly the best packaged thing I’ve ever received and it took ages to get out of the packaging. Just perfect!
It’s really lovely, and I’m thrilled with it. The ‘crystals’ are of course a resin but it’s still quite heavy to hang so be a bit careful if you have older cables. Lord knows how heavy actual chandeliers are!
I have to say it looks a lot better hanging in our shabby chic bedroom than the black and gold shade.
And now it’s up I’ve realised I forgot to paint round the ceiling rose, what a wally! And quite how dull the newly painted white wall behind our bed is…that might have to change again…he he!
**full disclosure I received a free light shade for this review and the old lampshade is packed up for the mythical ‘next house’ one day we’ll find one…**
