#ChelmsfordLoves Homesense | Essex bloggers event

Homesense hannatalks


Homesense isn’t a shop that I’ve visited before, but I was kindly invited to Homesense in Chelmsford for a bloggers event. I explored the store with Charlotte from withlovelottie

If you haven’t been to Homesense before, it’s basically a home furnishing store with great discounts. They sell branded furniture from an array of brands; I even spotted some heavily discounted Ralph Lauren bed sheets! The departments include furniture, storage, dining, accessories, bedroom, kitchen, bathroom, gardening and gifts!

We started in the flower section. They have some stunning faux flowers available. My favourite were the faux roses and lillies – they were stunning and looked incredibly realistic.The vases they were paired with were so beautiful, too. I definitely need to nip in there again and buy some faux flowers – there were so many to choose from!

The brand new Spring collection was stunning. There were some great garden pieces, including colourful and patterned pots, dainty twinkling lights, comfy outdoor furniture and various urban-inspired decorative pieces.

What I loved the most about Homesense was that the store was neat, tidy and most of all – colour coordinated and super organised! It made the shopping experience more pleasurable, seeing colour groups and textures together!

Homesense notebooks

Homesense has a whole department dedicated to notebooks, travel diarys and flippads. They had the most beautiful designs too – I wanted to buy them all! I especially loved the pink and red range range, with gold lettering. It was hard to resist buying them all!

Homesense throws

The homeware department was my favourite section.

The throws and blankets were gorgeous, they felt so soft and looked like such a great quality. There were around 5 hanging racks of throws and blankets, all colour coordinated. The neutral rack was my favourite; I especially loved the look of the first aztec patterned one and the soft stripey one.

Homesense in Chelmsford just oozed quirkiness and fun.

I love how well organised each department was, how everything had been perfectly faced up and that everything, including the pots and pans, were colour coordinated. It’s trendy, fun and most of all – cheap! You can get hold of some great bargains here, and there are plenty of discounted designer labels to found around the store.

The discounted products reminded me of TXMax, but it’s much, MUCH more organised and pretty in Homesense!

Homesense also kindly gifted us each a £25 voucher, so I treated myself to a few bits.
I picked up a super cute polka dot journal, a photo album, a heart shaped jewellery pot and an Emma Bridgewater-esque heart mug.

The Chelmsford Homesense team were super friendly and helpful, which certainly makes the shopping process a lot more pleasurable! I can’t wait to visit again, it’s such a great store to explore and find little gems.

Have you been to Homesense before?

The quality of my photos turn absolutely dire once I load them onto Blogger. Does anyone know why?!

    This looks like my kind of place! Very similar to the home section of TK Maxx where I love to seek out new homeware bits. I live in Frinton On Sea, so not too far from Chelmsford – I need to take a trip up one weekend for a look around! Sam x

    I wish there was a Homesense local to me, it's like a massive TK Maxx. I love the mug that you picked up and the event sounds really relaxed and chilled too 🙂 xx

    I shop at Homesense, I got some wonderful Dartington glasses from them and other bits and pieces. It's a love shop, better kept than TKMaxx.
