We love a bit of recycling, especially when you can make something useful for the home. These wall organisers are made from empty moisturising bottles – that’s it!

After carefully removing any labels, draw on your desired shape, making sure you have a hole so you can hang it, and cut it out. It’s that simple and looks really good.

Try different bottle sizes and styles depending on what you need to put in them.

We are spoilt for choice when it comes to lighting. With the ever increasing number of new designs and re workings of old ones, it’s difficult to know where to begin.

Lighting as with all home decor is personal taste but sometimes we all need a little direction, so with that in mind a new trend for 2017 is sculptured lighting.

Strong angles and shapes currently dominate lighting departments, with geometric, 1920s and organic designs proving popular. Moulded one piece task lamps and curved wood pendants give fluidity and cast amazing light when on. And when not on they become works of art.

Globes are featuring big at the moment, in the form of clusters or individually. White is an obvious colour choice bit if you are feeling brave consider a bright colour, perfect set against a neutral room.
