John Lewis summer furniture offers

The building work at home rumbles on, entering week 14 at 8am this morning when the usual breezy knock got us out of bed. After a speedy loft conversion, the number of fellas on site each day has declined from six to one, which explains the snail’s pace (I have stopped buying them biscuits as penance).

Still, it’s getting there and my son’s bedroom, the mega bathroom and the upstairs snug are almost ready to decorate and (interior) design: the best bit.

I am totally obsessed with a G Plan @ John Lewis sofa, but a few smashing summer offers that have come to my attention are also very, very tempting: like the Robin desk and Penny office chair above, reduced to £250 (how good would that look with my pink chaise, white Barcelona chair and the striped office carpet I haven’t yet purchased but have my beady eye on).

These cheeky and very fashionable bargains would also look right at home in my place…

This silver/light grey sofa would work a treat in the music room on our second floor…it’s a manly man cave snaffled by my partner in order to escape from me and play his guitar (Farringdon medium sofa in light grey, £799 – special buy)

I love a button backed chair and there’s room for a little seat in the window of our upstairs living room – guess who’ll be up there spying on the neighbours (Agneta dining chair, £125 – special buy)

My boy needs a bedside table for his brand spanking new bedroom and I love how slick and minimal this one is – imagine it adorned with a Spider-Man Hot Toy and a random Lego structure and you’ll get a feel for the look of his future boudoir (Treviso bedside table, £125 – reduced from £250)
