Staying Home, Home Decor and Coronavirus
As the world faces this coronavirus pandemic and we are all urged to stay home, we are more than ever looking towards home décor and DIY. Is it to alleviate stress, boredom, to have something function as normal or because staying in is the new going out! For some households, money is less tight, due to lack of spending, socialising and travelling. For others a great hardship has occurred, furloughed pay and lost incomes. Here, at House of Oscar, continuing to stay open online and supply our gorgeous home décor items has not only been good for business, but for the mind too! and we have something to suit every budget from mirrors and shelves to ornaments and clocks.
We have had many changes in our own household, a teenager to be home schooled ( difficult when he knows more than you about Maths and Science!) two adult children that had left but returned just before lockdown for a “short stay” and missing loved ones and friends. We have still made time for decorating a guest room, a wall per week! Partly to extend the job to keep busy, but also was easier to manage. Curtains have been washed and furniture upcycled. We have also given in to temptation with some of the fabulous new items we have in stock, and found the perfect places at home for them. (Check out our gorgeous mirrors!)
In the meantime its been business as usual, aside from making the necessary changes to implement health and safety measures, our ever popular Tree of Life ornament has been a bigger hit than ever, for people to send gifts to loved ones they cannot meet. A huge trend for mirrors and shelves this Spring, making your homes beautiful inside and out with a rise in our garden ornaments.
Thank you for continuing to support House Of Oscar during this difficult time. We wish you well, STAY HOME and STAY SAFE, and we look forward to greeting you on our Facebook and Instagram pages.
