Minimalist chic is a very hot idea for the home this season, particularly in the bedroom and lounge! Less is absolutely more with clean simple lines and colours and neutrals!

Vintage is also back in fashion and what could be more vintage than lace? But we’re not talking doilies and broekie lace! Think glamorous and sultry!

You can also have a bit of fun with a nice warm faux fur throw or 2. A hot idea is to think cave man material with modern chicness!
