This rug is an absolute steal and you can't convince us otherwise. It's definitely giving us Scandi vibes and that always gets a yes from us. We love the funky, geometric diamond design and the fact that they've decided to pair charcoal with white and mustard... Autumn feels all round. It's also soft to touch and machine washable so what's not to love?

Set the mood with some moody ambiance lighting in the form of this gorj table lamp. We love the quirky tripod style, paired with the black shade for ultimate ambient settings. We're super impressed by this minimalist design from Aldi... Versatile and suited to any style of interior. And for that price? Yes, please.

We love adding texture and depth to a room with layers and that's exactly what a floor cushion does... especially in this beaut crushed velvet look. As mentioned, we're obsessed with greys and charcoal because we love the low-key look they bring. This floor cushion is soooo soft and comfortable... but it has sold out online so you'll have to snatch it up in store ASAP!
