Top 10 Home Treat
Helen Stone,-Interiors Writer

Treat your home to a few simple refreshes and fall in love with your living space all over again

Over the last year or so, our homes have been our everything ­– our comfort and rest, our work places and study zones, not to mention cosy sanctuaries where we could feel safe. As our lives finally begin to open up again, it’s the perfect time to review arrangements at home and see what small tweaks might make life easier, more comfortable and altogether more lovely this summer.


Dine in style

Royal Worcester Serendipity Platinum Bone China Dinnerware Set, White, 16 Piece

With entertaining friends and family back on the menu, you might want to wave goodbye to any mismatched china or chipped serving dishes. Our tableware department has dinner sets for all budgets from price-conscious ANYDAY Dine to fine china if your wedding list is finally coming together. 


Layer up comforts

John Lewis & Partners Rye Knit Throw

Textured blankets and throws are perfect for adding depth and interest to your room scheme and are an instant way to freshen up a tired sofa or armchair. Think indoor and outdoor – it may be sweltering in the garden at midday but we all know how the temperature can drop after the sun sets. Pile on the blankets and get every minute you can out of that relaxed evening in the garden.


Bring a new scent home

Jo Malone London English Pear & Freesia Home Scented Candle

Rooms get so stuffy on warm days but a good quality scented candle or essential oils in a diffuser can quickly freshen things up. Harness the power of aromatherapy by choosing a scent for its mood – fresh and uplifting, invigorating, or simply calm and relaxing. 


Find comfort in the shade

John Lewis & Partners Burford Garden Woven 2-Seat Sofa, FSC-Certified (Acacia Wood), Natural

Why not create a favourite spot in your garden just for you? Sun-seekers can go ahead and soak up the full rays on the lawn but a seat in the shade can make an appealing escape for doing a few little household chores or enjoying a good book without the glare. It’s your choice.
