Maisons du Monde... how very dare you! Yup, the French homeware giant have given a Gallic shrug and launched an autumn winter 2019 range that's really taken us by surprise. It's every bit as elegant as you'd expect, but instead of those earthy tones every other retailer has been swamping us with (don't get us wrong, we love it), it's all cute pinks and smart blues – perfect for brightening up our homes as the days get shorter and darker.
Inspired by Art Deco and Scandi design, every curvaceous piece makes a statement in its own right... and we want it all. And because it's all about beautiful silhouettes, you don't need to buy much to make an impact. Perfect for small homes that need pepping up without feeling overcrowded, if you ask us.

1. A gorgeous daybed for small spaces for under £350
This interior is just so fresh and modern and is decked out with Maison du Monde's gorgeous new Urban Mood range. The clean lines and sustainably sourced pine legs of the (very well-priced) Old Rose day bed, £346.50 (opens in new tab), give a nod to Scandinavian design while the pastel pink makes a unique statement. Love it!
And to make colour coordinating easy, we love how the scatter cushions are a mix and match of feature cushions, giving this room effortless character. Our favourite blue, pink and grey cotton cushion cover (opens in new tab) costs just £13.50.
2. Affordable dining room furniture with designer looks
Oooh, loving the Eve petrol blue chair (opens in new tab), £54.50, and Perforated Metal two-door sideboard (opens in new tab), £237.50, here. Look great against pink, too, right? But if you don't like pink, we think they'd look fab against a neutral, natural background with tons of woody textures, too.
Back to the pink and blue theme though – the range has been designed so that you can make creating a colour scheme a breeze. So, the metal wall art (opens in new tab), £29, can help you achieve a feature wall without the commitment or effort of painting (take note, renters). Pair it with the v Matte Pink stoneware vase (opens in new tab), £14.50, and the Pink Tinted glass vase (opens in new tab), £16.50, and you're sorted.
Have a little peek at our 11 feature wall design ideas if that's piqued your interest.
3. Armchairs for dining rooms, bedrooms and kitchens
Mmmm... this chair is just dreamy in every way. Let's start with the high, curved backseat and plush cushioning for maximum comfort. Then, there's the fact that the pine legs are giving us all those hygge vibes, and that they're made from sustainable wood. Add that to the gorgeous pink velvet and you've got yourself a pretty perfect chair.
Keep it in your living room as a feature chair or buy a few and jazz up your dining room table. Or pop one in your bedroom by a dressing table. Or perhaps one in the hallway. It also comes in five more colours... but we're just sticking to pink and blue, today. Pink Velvet Armchair, £200.50 (opens in new tab).
4. Stylish storage for hallways, kids rooms and beyond
Looking for minimalist shelving units that will never look out of place, anywhere in the house? You've got it in the Sand shelving unit with multiple compartments (opens in new tab), £260. The light wood and longline frame is so versatile and can be placed vertically or horizontally.
And while we're on the subject of storage, our favourite part of this room is the three-hook Paulownia coat rack ladder (opens in new tab), £49.50, because a) it's just so cute and b) it would look just as good in a bathroom as a hallway.
Adding a pop of colour to a room? The pink perpetual calendar (opens in new tab), £19, and the four drawer printed storage box (opens in new tab), £25.50, complete the look.
5. A velvet sofa that'll never date and lighting we love
This midnight blue sofa (opens in new tab), £865, is so gorgeously inviting... we need one! Sorry, want one. The pink oak stool (opens in new tab), £49.50, and Clara pink cushion (opens in new tab), £15.50, offer a complementary lift. And lighting? The pink tinted glass pendant (opens in new tab), £44, is the perfect finishing touch, offering the room a warm, rosy hue.
