10 bargain homeware buys that look far more expensive than they are

All under €20.

Packed away all those festive decorations and the house looking a little bare now?

No need to mope around – spring is around the corner (promise!), and so instead, how about just giving your home a little refresh for the new season?

And the best bit? We know it’s January and our bank accounts are not in the healthiest of ways, so we have rounded up 10 gorgeous homeware buys that are not going to break the bank or budget this spring:

1. Birch plywood wall clock

Scandi chic at bargain prices? Thank you, Ikea. The Snajdare wall clock is officially on our collective wish lists this spring.
