Gone are the days when sofa beds looked like sofa beds, the extra chair in the corner of a room or in the office that just didn’t sit right with everything else!

With demand for adapatable furniture that looks good, and the fact that we want ease when pulling out a sofa bed for unexpected guests, rather than a hassle, brands have starting offering us much better products.

Wayfair / West Elm

Head to Ikea for an array of good looking day bed / sofa beds that work just as well in an office space / spare room as they do in a living room. With more and more fabric choices and colours there is no reason your main sofa can’t be a bed too.

Day beds are also increasing in popularity making for a cosy sofa to curl up on and read a book and when needed, with one simple move you have a bed.

The sofa bed is here to stay!

We spotted these fun ceramics from zarahome.com and are great to buy individually or as a set.

The grid print earthenware range comes in 4 different sizes of bowl and plate starting from £5.99.

The monochrome design is really cool and would fit in perfectly with a stripped back Scandi style kitchen.

Gentle soft palette, bringing the outdoors in and layering botanical patterns but breaking up with stretches of plain pale colours to stop it becoming too busy.

Use light mustards, greens, mauves and white together with botanical pale prints.

This look is calming and beautiful for a bedroom or lounge.

Add to this look with mango wood, rattan or white painted wood furniture. It’s a great idea to search eBay or furniture charity shops for pieces to suit the look, but Urban Outfitters, La Redoute and Maison Du Monde all have vintage style rattan and wood options.

Available across the high street and quite a timeless trend.

If you are feeling creative and want to save a few pounds then why not try making your own.

Burkatron.com has a fab tutorial showing you how to do just that, using a handful of items. Make your modern art as simple or complex as you like, and use the colours you love.
