1. An easy-care plant like this aloe vera will brighten up your bathroom.

Succulents, cacti and plants like aloe vera are easy to care for, and love to live in bathrooms – there's no need to water them when the condensation from the shower will do the job.

Get a nice potted aloe vera on Amazon, £9.24

2. One slightly fancy item can lift an entire room of Ikea.

Maisons du Monde is a French interiors company that does a great line in cheapish-and-chic. I am in love with this velvet stool, which looks more expensive and luxurious in real life, I promise.

Get it at Maisons du Monde, £47.99 in pink or peacock blue


3. A brightly coloured bedside table will make waking up each morning a pleasure.

La Redoute is another French brand that does cute homewares. I love this little wooden bedside table – you could easily carry it into your living room if you were having friends over for drinks too.

Get it at La Redoute, £49

5. A metal-edged mirror can make a room look bigger, as well as being a ~design piece~.

I think mirrors look cool propped up, if you're worried about putting nails in your wall. If you don't want to buy one online, I've had great success with foraging in charity shops.

Get it at Maisons du Monde, £23.99


7. A small fluffy throw can double up as a rug or a blanket.

I just bought this blue one from La Redoute and am so excited about squishing my toes into it each morning as I step out of bed.

Get it at La Redoute, £24

8. A glam candle holder is an elegant touch for any occasion.

Hear me out: Candle holders are not just for your auntie who loves Stevie Nicks , rose quartz, and drape-y shawls. They're an easy way to add a touch of class to a room, and portable as well (who's to question whether you have candle holders in every room, or one candle holder that you just carry around with you, hmmm?)

Get it at Maisons du Monde, £11.99


11. A statement wall clock is an easy way to make an impact.

I think this cutlery-themed clock is really cute, and it's an easy way to add a bit of personality to a kitchen wall. If you don't want to hang it on a nail, you could sit it on top of a bookshelf or a cabinet.

Get it at Maisons du Monde, £23.99
