The ideal home show is an amazing place for interior design and inspiration, offering a selection of products from sofas and hot tubs to smaller accessories. The show is located at Olympia London, the building is massive so there’s a lot of stalls you can visit, you can easily spend the whole day there. They also have talks running throughout the day with four different stages you can visit. The super theatre offered a range of talks about the home with talks on property, money saving and decluttering. Feel good stage is all about healthy living and fitness and the foodie stage is where chefs demonstrate how to cook some lovely dishes. The drinks station offers information about Gins, Wines and Craft Beer along with demonstrations on how to make some tasty cocktails. I visited the feel good stage for a talk by Online Health Coach Max Lowery and Calum Best, about why exercise isn’t the be all and end all for weight loss.
Furnish Your Home
Furnish Your Home sell a range of stylish home furniture such as chairs, lighting and dining sets. The designs are very sleek and modern, my favourite piece was this pink sofa, I absolutely love the style and colour! I also really liked this ruby coloured lounging chair
Pure independence exhibitions had a luxurious selection of beds available, I particularly liked this teal blue one.
I love the pastel colours and retro design of these products, one day I really want to buy a pink Smeg fridge, although spending over £1000 for a fridge is a lot of money.
The Eat & Drink festival is also on at Olympia London at the same time and entry is free with Ideal Home tickets. They served a huge range of food such as German sausages, curries, burgers, cakes and cookies. Sam and I tried poutine which is chips, gravy and cheese curds, we really liked it when we visited Canada and it’s a delicious comfort food. If you fancy a cocktail or beer there’s plenty of bars to choose from and they even had a gin bar!
Royal wedding cake competitionWe had a really good time at the Ideal Home Show, if you’re renovating your house or just looking for some finishing touches then it’s definitely worth a visit. I’d also recommend having a look at what’s on before you go as they have some really good talks going on. Having the Eat & Drink Festival on at the same time was really good, you can get pretty hungry after walking around for ages looking at all the amazing interiors and homeware.
