We love this sleek black unit from Ikea for its simple design and practical use. The FALSTERBO wall unit is made from coated steel and would work really well in a hallway or kitchen. With three shelves, three drawers and hooks along the bottom you can fill it up to the max.

What’s even better is that it’s a really good price of £70, so why not get two!

If it’s got a hook on the back if it hang it! That’s the basic rule to follow, with wall decor taking on a new style.

We all love a picture wall, framed prints and photos filling a space. Nothing wrong with that, although now there is so much more to display on our walls including hanging rings, macrame, baskets and planters. It’s nothing new, but a trend emerging currently is to soften a room with neutral tones and add the hanging items with materials to compliment – woods, rope, and metals with an artisan feel, almost hand crafted.

Plants play a large part, so get some baskets or metal rings and play around with faux or real succulents to create a relaxing space – ivy is great for this.

Feathers are popular, whether in art work, embroidery or hanging decor with the softeness and intricate design bringing interest and calm to a space. 

Whatever you decide, the choice is out there. A great place to start is online marketplaces Trouva and Amara.

With new colour trends appearing all the time its hard to keep up. Decorating whole rooms to the latest shades is not always an option, so instead it’s a great time to start introducing accessories and accents.

A big colour choice for now, going into next year is Red. Not an easy one to work with, so our advice is to keep it simple. Red is a colour that is going to shout out within a room, so make sure the pieces you choose enhance the space, not clutter it.

A statement clock or cabinet will draw attention in a room, as well as an armchair or sofa. Perhaps opt for a painted wall, a chalky matt finish will tone the effect down and in turn will create a more subtle finish.

A monochrome, white walled room is going to act as the best back drop to red accessories, but an industrial look also looks great with red light fittings or tiles, ideal in a kitchen.

Whatever your thoughts on the colour Red there is no doubting it’s uplifting and fun. We are on board!
