We found such a collection of good lighting under one (virtual) roof, we definitely recommend checking out the lighting department at La Redoute. Not only do they have a broad, stylish and well designed range that covers many current trends – industrial, minimal, atomic, Scandi, retro, maximalist – but also with the renowned huge regular sales, there’s always a chance to get a really great discount of your choice!

We’ve rounded up our favourites (see picture) but head to the lighting department now while the sale is on!

With a new year brings new trends and new colours to get excited about, and this January sees the launch of Dulux colour of the year – Tranquil Dawn. A shade of green, that is close to a moss green and is a extremely calming colour. It is also very adaptable and can be used alongside pinks, stones, blues and earthy shades.

‘A colour inspired by the morning sky, to help give homes the human touch’

Similar shades of green are being seen in accessories and furniture. You may not want to necessarily layer green on green, but use this as an accent to create your space.We love the combination of pink & green, especially if you’re using it on a wall. Pink tableware and ceramics can also compliment a green wall and then add terracotta’s, yellows and blues to build up a gorgeous pallette.

We love this easy, simple DIY from Sarah Hearts to make table mats. Such a quick idea but so effective. So little equipment needed and great results.

It’s easy to tailor this to your own taste, colour choice and even be more adventurous with design.

Head to Sarah Hearts for the full tutorial.

Following with the theme of last week’s trend post – chintz, we love these floral cushion covers from H&M Home.

The highly decorative print has so much detail, and we would mix with other patterned cushions for a maximalist look.

At only £8.99 for the cover it’s a great buy, and the perfect excuse to get two!!
