Practical window dressing
The opposite of a blackout blind, the latest design from Direct Blinds filters light to reduce glare from the low winter sun, while filling your space with plenty of natural light in the warmer months. This Ditsy polyester roller blind in Citrus costs from £39.15 for H40xW40cm and is also available in Tangerine, Watermelon and Berry.
Combining industrial style with an on-trend metallic finish, this Rene bronze French pendant light, £79.99 from My-Furniture, provides the perfect update for both modern and classic schemes. H82xDia.32cm, hang it above a work area or line up three over your breakfast bar.
Fun feature wall
Tick off your to-do list and keep the kids entertained by painting a wall with Rust-Oleum’s magnetic Chalkboard Paint. Suitable for a number of different surfaces including wood and plastic, the paint creates a scratch-resistant, wipe-clean finish for the whole family to enjoy. Available in black or blue, in a tin or spray, it costs £14.99 for 750ml from Homebase.
Low cost fixture
Good design doesn’t have to be expensive, so for a quick update at a great price, the Pico monobloc mixer tap, from £99 at Abode, will make a stylish statement. H36.5cm, the tall swan-neck swivel spout has a chrome or brushed nickel finish, and features extra-slim, easy-to- operate handles.
Provide guests with a modern and bright seating option this New Year with Philippe Starck’s Misa Joy chair, from Heal’s. Part of the TOG – All Creators TOGether – collective, the chair’s elastic backrest comes in interchangeable colours to suit your scheme. H83xW46x D56cm, from £160.
