Good Interiors Don't Have to Cost the Earth—Just Ask Our Editors

We all know the start of spring brings with it the want and need to give your wardrobe an update, but we find the same appeal applies to our homes, too. After months of dark nights and candlelight, the brighter, longer days make us see our spaces in a completely different way. Right now, as three members of the Who What Wear team find themselves in an exciting position to decorate their new homes, our Slack group has been flooded with links to and imagery of the affordable interior buys we've found. Thinking this might also be of interest to anyone who is looking to spruce up their existing homewares ahead of the summer months, we decided to share them with you.

What makes something "affordable"? We think it's relative. While you can pick up vases for under £30 in most high-street stores, there's something undeniably frugal about finding a large, stylish rug for under £80—something you'd usually expect to pay at least three figures for. And then there are curtains, which often carry a price tag that can make your eyes water, so let us introduce you to the £25 pair one of our writers has in every room of her house. Scroll below to see and shop the chicest affordable interior buys around.
