For many it’s the go-to site for buying things you need last minute (thank you amazon prime), others loath it for being the big quasher of other stores through its competitive pricing and ease of shopping – but it does offer small stores an outlet to reach a bigger market (albeit if they take a big cut) and also it’s surprisingly home to many many good interiors pieces.

By just searching under the top trends (scandi, industrial, marble, Moroccan, midcentury and more, there’s an abundance of great homewares and furniture that comes up – and at great prices!

Plus as the returns system is so easy, it makes it simple if you get the wrong product or change your mind.

See our top picture for our favourite picks at amazon .

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.

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!!
