Below are some of my favourites from across the ranges they currently have in store:
|Sainsbury’s Oriental range|
First up is their oriental-inspired dining range. The pinks, peaches and blues look stylish and contemporary and I’ve been buying from this range for a while now. I have everything from pasta bowls, to side plates and cups and I mix and match them with my plain white dining set. It was the colours and the brushstroke patterns that really attracted me to their Oriental range which I first picked up around the Chinese New Year celebrations.
I won’t list the prices of all the items shown as they can be seen in most of the pictures. If not I’ve proved a link to their website at the bottom of this post.
|Sainsbury’s Bohemian Wanderer range|
|Sainsbury’s floral meadow range|
My favourite range though, as you can probably tell from the number of photos I took, is their Spring floral range. The whole range is full of watercolour images and spring meadow flowers adorning lampshades, candles and cushions such as the Floral print cushion 50×50 which is so pretty and for its size, very reasonable at £14.00. There’s also the wood finish which adds to the countryside feel and would go well with a more rustic look.

|Who doesn’t love a yellow planter?|
|Sainsbury’s nautical range|
Finally, it’s not Spring/Summer without a nautical range. Like pastels for sprint, ‘or botanicals for summer, nauticals are a good-to trend and with good reason, if it aint broke don’t fix it. The reason I mention it, it because if you’re looking for outdoor dining options, I really would recommend Sainsbury’s over the likes of Tesco, ASDA etc. because they have such a great selection.
As it’s all for outdoor use, many of the items are plastic and I would have liked to have seen some more plastic-free options, perhaps with bamboo, but for these prices that isn’t likely. However, if they’re not just used once but rather reused each summer then I don’t see anything wrong with this.
The only range I’m not massively keen on is the Helsinki collection. I’m not a fan of black in the kitchen. For me it’s a bit of a no, no, especially when used for dining but that’s just a personal preference and I’d whole heartily recommend the Bohemian Wanderer range, their basic Home range, Fiesta, Home Meadow and the Palm House range which I didn’t manage to photograph but can be found by searching their Kitchen range here. The Palm House range was inspired by Kew Gardens and you get a real sense of that with this collection.
On one final note, if you have little ones, keep an eye out for their Home Fiesta teepee tent.
