To splurge or not, you de­cide.

COP­PER CLOCKS

Trend: Sim­ple white faces with cop­per fin­ishes work well with grey-based tones, neu­trals and pas­tels. Stylish and por­ta­ble.

PEDESTAL FANS

Try it: The raw, metal­lic look suits an in­dus­trial in­te­rior. Both have ad­justable stands and three speeds for to­tal con­trol.

PAS­TEL SO­FAS

Colour: Though pale in colour, these sky-blue de­signs are sur­pris­ingly ro­bust. Dif­fer­ent feet rad­i­cally change the look.

OAK FRAMES

Dec­o­rate: Pictures are im­por­tant but frames call the shots. Put a tra­di­tional im­age in the mar­ble de­sign and a graphic pic in the other.

RETRO BLENDERS

Clas­sic: Flashy mod­els make way for old-style blenders in sooth­ing tones of cream. Per­fect for cosy, con­tem­po­rary or coun­try kitchens.

BLUE PAT­TERNED TILES

Trend: Graphic Span­ish and Ital­ian prints were the in­spi­ra­tion here. The ply­wood tiles can be glued straight onto your wall – DIY heaven!

CURVY CHAIRS

Shape: Gain­ing trac­tion are solid-back chairs in wal­nut, ash or oak. Ta­pered legs and up­hol­stered seats make them su­per com­fort­able.

SIL­VER LAN­TERNS

Dec­o­rate: Keep can­dles pro­tected all year round in stain­less-steel and glass de­signs. Rest the square bases on a flat sur­face or sus­pend.

ROUND FOOT­STOOLS

Try it: Great for re­laxed spa­ces, foot­stools in neu­tral tones with wooden legs can dou­ble as ex­tra seats or tray-topped ta­bles.

BLACK KITCHEN TAPS

Trend: Cre­ate im­pact in a white kitchen with black ac­ces­sories. Or place in a dark room so the tap “dis­ap­pears” and makes the sink the star.

GLASS TEAPOTS

Taste it: Tea is more pop­u­lar than ever. Em­brace the rev­o­lu­tion with a see-through pot for the loose leaves of black, green or fruit tea.

MINTY TOW­ELS

Clas­sic: Re­fresh your linen with cot­ton tow­els in var­i­ous shades of green. Re­mem­ber to wash them in hot wa­ter be­fore us­ing.

TA­BLE RA­DIOS

Lis­ten up: The lat­est gen­er­a­tion may rock a retro look, but they of­fer great clar­ity and sound qual­ity, are easy to use and suit any room.

AFRICAN ART

Style: Awe­some with black leather and brown-based ac­ces­sories, these el­e­gant, eye-catch­ing prints will ar­rive ready to hang.

BOLD TEA TOW­ELS

Add it: Brighten up a sparse kitchen with a state­ment tea towel. Hang with the wash­ing up or frame for a wall in any part of your home.

METAL TA­BLES

Dec­o­rate: Use as a side ta­ble or next to the bed. Heav­ier mod­els are more sta­ble; the lighter ones can be stor­age for throws or pil­lows.
