22 Marks and Spencer Homeware Buys That Look Ridiculously Expensive

I've recently just moved into a new home, and while I'm keen to put my own stamp on it, let's just say my budget is, well, virtually non-existent. With more pressing things to spend my money on—such as council tax and electricity—I've decided to shut down my Pinterest and instead, focus on the things I can afford: small but effective interior updates. After spending hours and hours searching for frugal homeware buys that don't look cheap (which is no small feat), there's one high-street store I keep circling back to: Marks and Spencer.

I've long shopped in Marks and Spencer for the likes of knitwear and lingerie, but now, I'm borderline obsessed with its interior offering, too. I hold a lot of confidence in M&S's quality, so even though many of the pieces that have made their way onto my wish list have low price tags, I know they'll go the distance.

From the perfect accent chair (undoubtedly my biggest splurge) to the £8 candle that rivals those four times as costly, keep scrolling to shop my edit of the best Marks and Spencer homeware buys.
