1. Meli Melo napkins, £40 for four, Caravane

Meli Melo napkins caravane

Ultra-chic Parisian brand Caravane’s Meli Melo napkins are made using offcuts from the hand-spun cotton khadi fabric used in their bedspreads and cushion covers.

Each set of four napkins features different designs, but all are woven together by a common motif of colour or pattern which gives them a pleasing visual harmony without being matchy-matchy.

2. Botanical Pink basin, £798, Burlington Bathrooms

Burlington Bathrooms botanical pink basin

Burlington are best known for their classic Victorian and Edwardian-inspired basins, toilets and baths, but their latest collection brings the brand firmly into the 20th century. No less elegant than their traditional ranges, Bespoke by Burlington incorporates the vibrant colours and patterns of the 1920s and beyond.

From floral designs inspired by painted ceramics (like Botanical Pink, shown above) to 1950s retro pinks and pastels, the range marks yet another milestone in the triumphant return of the coloured bathroom suite.

3. Ursula accent chair, £699, Sofology

Ursula accent chair sofology

When it comes to statement furniture, an accent chair is a simple way to bring a splash of drama to your living room decor. With its classic shape and plush upholstery, the Ursula by Sofology is one of our favourites.

The chair comes in a variety of colours, but we particularly love the Honeycreeper fabric with patterned Print Gigo around the outside. Deep greens are a perennial favourite to create striking, elegant schemes, but recent nature-centred trends has made these shades are more popular than ever.

4. Splatter Dessert Plate, £22, Skye McAlpine x Anthropologie

Skye McAlpine Anthropologie dessert plate

Anthropologie’s newly-launched homeware collaboration with cook and author Skye McAlpine is a treasure trove for anyone who loves to entertain at home.

The range includes pitchers, platters and mugs combining classic English ceramic style with touches of Mediterranean flair. Most of the collection follows a traditional floral theme, but we’re especially taken by the distinctive watercolour-blue splatter design on this dessert plate. If you are too, the range also includes a serving bowl and cake stand in the same pattern.

5. Pendant lampshades, from £250, MATCHIMATCHI

MATCHIMATCHI

Developed by lighting designers Scarlett Hampton and Niki Wright, MATCHIMATCHI is a new brand with big ideas when it comes to making home lighting options more customisable than ever. Available in seven distinctive shapes, these shades can be hung alone or combined to create a fabulous talking point in any room.

The central collection consists of 27 designs in colours ranging from jewel tones to pastel. Or, if you have your own perfect scheme in mind, their customisation tool lets you choose from a range of colours, fabric and finish to create your dream combination.

6. Seahorse Pattern in Seafoam Wallpaper, £65 per 3m roll, Catherine Rowe

Seahorse Pattern in Seafoam Wallpaper

British designer Catherine Rowe’s vintage-style wildlife illustrations are instantly recognisable. You might have seen them on cushions, coasters and handbags, but the brand also carries a wide range of bright and quirky original wallpaper patterns.

We particularly love the design above, which features seahorses and oysters against a dreamy sea-green backdrop – it would make a playful addition to any bathroom scheme.

7. Gold trinket box, £55, La Redoute

Gold quartz trinket box la redoute

As any interiors aficionado knows, a well-placed shimmer of gold can elevate a whole room. This bold trinket box from French brand La Redoute, topped with a rose quartz lid, is a perfect example.
