Home sweet home

BROWSE homeware departments these days and it soon becomes apparent we’re yearning for sweeter times. From lollies and pick ‘n’ mix to retro soda streams, nostalgia for childhood confectionary is making its mark on the interiors world, cropping up on everything from deckchairs to light switches, says Homes and Bargains editor Eve Kelly.

BROWSE homeware departments these days and it soon becomes apparent we’re yearning for sweeter times. From lollies and pick ‘n’ mix to retro soda streams, nostalgia for childhood confectionary is making its mark on the interiors world, cropping up on everything from deckchairs to light switches, says Homes and Bargains editor Eve Kelly.

“If you really want to embrace this trend without investing too much of your hard earned money, give your walls a new lease of life with a fresh coat of paint in a pale candy colour and team it with some bright confectionery-themed pieces,” Kelly suggests.

“For the kitchen, try bourbon-shaped cushions and teacake tea towels, or for those who always dreamed of running a sweet shop, grab yourself some glass storage jars and fill them with candy, for an instant new look that costs less.”
