Give your living space a new-season refresh with easy, affordable ideas that make a big difference
Add colour with cushions
One of the quickest and easiest ways to update your home and add colour and texture is with a cushion or two. Our sumptuous velvet cushions come in a choice of on-trend nature-inspired colours, opulent jewel tones, goes-with-everything neutrals and softer shades such as blush pink. Add a couple of cushions to your bed for a super-stylish look or add one or more to an armchair or sofa to create a cosy spot where you can sit and relax.
Display your vases
A single vase or a grouping of three or more is a simple but effective way to add a decorative element to mantelpieces, shelves or tables. Stick to one colour or material, such as glass, and mix up the shapes and sizes. Choose from bouquet vases, teardrop vases, cylindrical vases and fishbowl vases in various sizes. Fill your vases with fresh flowers, dried flowers or foliage, from a single stem for a sculptural look to a generous bunch.
Add photos to the walls
Framed photographs, inspirational quotes or art prints add personality and colour to rooms, from kids’ bedrooms to your working-from-home study set-up. Mix up the colour and size of the frames but keep the style consistent for a coherent look, and place on a shelf or create a gallery wall. Our wooden photo frames come in various sizes and colours, from natural wood and white to bold yellow. Top tip for gallery walls: cut paper to the size of each frame and tape to the wall, so you can get the arrangement right before you start hammering.
Give your bathroom a spa-style upgrade
A stack of luxurious Egyptian cotton towels is a simple and effective way to give your bathroom an upgrade and turn a soak in the bath into a spa-like experience. After all, what could be more of a treat than stepping out of a relaxing bath into a warm, fluffy towel? With more than 30 colours to choose from, there’s sure to be a shade to match your interior style. Even better, at just €16 for a bath towel, they’re great value, too.

Scent your home
We spend a lot of time thinking about how our houses look, but atmosphere is just as important, which is where fragrance comes in. Our Calm Apothecary range combines lavender, clary sage, sweet orange and cedar wood in stylish amber holders to transform your home into a relaxing haven. Light a Calm candle to signal the end of the working day, turn washing your hands into a relaxing ritual by adding a Calm hand wash & lotion set in a smart wooden tray to your bathroom or place a Calm reed diffuser in your bedroom to help you relax before bed.
