Who doesn't love Strictly Come Dancing? It's over an hour spent watching celebrities twirl and leap and tap and shimmy and it's glorious. So to pay homage to one of our fave shows, we rounded up our fave home buy to turn your household into a Strictly haven. Let's meet the stars of the show…

1. A groovy neon disco light 

Loving this neon sign from Oliver Bonas. Pop it in your hallway so all your guests know your vibe when they arrive, perch it on your dressing table to provide the ideal glow for getting ready or stick it on your kitchen shelving to set the mood while you cook. Where ever you end up putting it, we think it's the perfect subtle, stylish nod at our love of Strictly.

You might be stuck on the sofa but that doesn't mean you can't partake in the sparkle. This is the cushion you never even knew you needed: a bundle of sparkling fun covered in reversible coloured sequins, so you can get the best of both worlds. Pop it on your sofa in one colour, or on your bed in the other, or get creative and draw your own design on it. What’s more? It even comes in five different colours, including gold, bronze, silver, peacock and rose gold.

A simple print has the power to brighten any blank wall. This one, however, is a necessity for those who love everything about dancing, and want their house guests to know about it. Minimalist, modern and it also makes a pretty fabulous gift.

The best introductory turntable for aspiring vinyl enthusiasts, the Audio-Technica AT-LP120 has all the features you’ll need to have a good time. With the ability to play several different RPM’s, there’ll never be an album you can’t dance to. No need to purchase a pre-amp, as there’s already one built in, and it also has a USB output so you can record your collection. There’s cover to protect your records, and its rather
sleek looking, so would easily blend into any home.

This shimmery crushed foil wallpaper is the perfect addition to a glitter-lover's dressing room or bathroom.

Strictly Come Dancing comes at exactly the right time in the year to distract us from the gloomy clouds outside, and this wallpaper captures that vibe. Fabulous!

Hi! I'm Annie, and I'm the Head Ecommerce Editor at Real Homes. I've been part of the Real Homes team since 2018, when I joined as Deals Editor. Along with covering major sales events — from Black Friday to Amazon Prime Day — I review home must-haves so that you can buy with peace of mind. Mostly focusing on home fragrance and sleep, as well as a few vacuum cleaners, I've tested pretty much every item you can think of that you need in your home. I live on the outskirts of the city in a two-bed apartment with my husband and my pug, Doug. So I am always searching for compact alternatives and ways to save floor space. What about when I am not typing away? Well, you'll find me enjoying an iced coffee (no matter the season) and trying out the latest brunch spots the city has to offer, or booking my next holiday. Where else can you find my words? Livingetc, Homes & Gardens, Ideal Home, Gardeningetc, and Woman & Home.
