Add some industrial style with these Tolix Short Metal Stools from Graham & Green, from £135.
Stools are often overlooked when it comes to choosing furniture and, in my opinion, rather unfairly.
And they’re not just for sitting on, oh no!
Place a tall one in front of a kitchen worktop and you have an instant breakfast bar, while short ones work well as everything from bedside tables to plant pot stands.
I love these Tolix Short Metal Bar Stools from Graham & Green which are available in White or Varnished Steel, and are perfect for adding some industrial chic to any room.
Plus, as they’re stackable, they’re great to have on hand for unexpected guests.
Add some capital style to your walls with this Window Silhouette London Wall Sticker from Spin Collective, £18.
Wall stickers offer the perfect way to add interest to a dull wall with minimum fuss.
And, if you don’t fancy reaching for the paint brush or shelling out on the latest designer wallpaper, they could be just the thing for you.
They come in all sorts of designs from contemporary and classic to retro so there’s something to suit everyone’s scheme.
Being a ridiculously proud Londoner, I love this Window Silhouette London Wall Sticker from Spin Collective.
With a view out of the window, featuring an elegant silhouette with some of the most iconic buildings in the capital, this sticker is a great way to give your walls a fresh look.
Give your clothes a stylish home of their own with this gorgeous French Silver Armoire from Out There Interiors, £1,355.
Unless you want your bedroom to look like a dumping ground, a wardrobe is an essential piece of bedroom kit.
And while, of course, they’re practical, that doesn’t mean they can’t be stylish too.
We have a huge range of wardrobes here on Furnish that suit both contemporary and classic schemes, but my personal favourite is this French Silver Armoire from Out There Interiors.
Combining a traditional style armoire with a striking silver leaf finish, it will create a dramatic style statement in any bedroom.
Pretty up your home with these Moroccan Fairy Lights from Primrose & Plum, £36.
Fairy lights are usually the preserve of the festive period, but some are just too pretty to only be used once a year.
These handmade Moroccan Glass Lantern Fairy Lights from Primrose & Plum certainly are.
Each string has 20 brightly coloured lights which are guaranteed to add some understated exotic style to any room.
Try stringing them along a mantelpiece or a headboard to add a subtle yet effective glow.
Serve your drinks and nibbles in style with a selection of our favourite trays.

I particularly love the cute toy cars on the Ella Doran – Gridlock Tray from Amara Living, while the Retro Wooden Tray Botanica from JasmineWay is a floral riot of colour.

Enjoy a hearty breakfast with this Culinary Concepts Amore Heart Toast Rack from John Lewis, £29.50.
Valentine’s Day may have been and gone, but that doesn’t mean you can’t still show that special someone that you love them, by treating them to breakfast in bed.
And, while a vase with a single rose might be a bit naff, this Culinary Concepts Amore Heart Toast Rack from John Lewis is anything but.
Ideal for giving a loved one a perfect start to the day, it will turn the humble round of toast into something a little more special.
Cosy up with one of these Klippan Mosaik Throws from Interior Addict, £89.
I had hoped that the worst of winter was behind us, however, the forecast seems to suggest that there is a fair amount of chilly weather still to come. So, to keep your bits and your pieces warm, what better way to cosy up than with a beautiful throw?
I love these Klippan Mosaik Throws from Interior Addict. Made from the softest lambswool, these comforting throws have a delicate zigzag design, and are available in three colour ways; subtle grey, vibrant magenta and on-trend pastel.
Perfect on a sofa, a chair or at the end of the bed, these gorgeous throws will keep you toasty until things warm up a little bit.
Put your photos on display in style with this Umbra Minimix Photo Frame from Red Candy, £20.40.
I’ve been married for two years this September but shamefully there are only two wedding pictures on display.
It’s not because we had some rogue photographer and hate the photos. To the contrary our snapper was amazing, but we just haven’t got round to finding the right frames.
I’ve been on the search for one of those multiple frames, which is why I was pleased to come across this stylish Umbra Minimix Photo Frame from Red Candy.
It has space for six photos in individually styled frames, and will instantly add interest to a plain wall. Plus at just over £20, it’s a bargain too.
Create the perfect French-style boudoir with this Gold Rococo Headboard from The French Bedroom Company, £1,145.
There’s nothing like a super comfy bed, and my brand new fabulous divan is one of the best I’ve ever slept in.
The only trouble with a divan is that, while they’re super comfy (and, if they have drawers they’re practical too), they’re not the most stylish of pieces.
The good news is that this can be rectified easily with a striking headboard. Headboards come in many guises but I love this Gold Rococo one from The French Bedroom Company.
The intricate gilt design will instantly add some classic French style, and ensure your bedroom is brilliant and never boring.
Add some classic retro style with this Jackson Aged Chair from OKA, £749.
When it comes to furniture, occasional chairs are a passion of mine and, if I had the room, my house would be littered with them – some small, some large but all, of course, very stylish!
I’ve been making do with a rather fabulous teal number, but I have my eye on this gorgeous Jackson Aged Chair from OKA.
With a subtle nod to mid-century design, this simple chair has been covered in an aged tobacco–coloured leather which will work well with most colour schemes.Perfect for the living room or bedroom, it would also be a welcome addition to a hallway or landing.
Add style and function to your hallway with this Bone Inlay Four Drawer Console from Out There Interiors, £835.
Out of all the rooms in the home, hallways can be the trickiest to furnish. Often narrow, you usually need to pack a lot into a fairly confined space. Coat racks, space for shoes and, if you have kids, a dumping place for school bags.
A must for any hallway is a console table, and this Bone Inlay Four Drawer Console from Out There Interiors is the bee’s knees.
Beautiful, yet simple in design, the table is made by setting individual pieces of bone in resin on a sturdy wooden frame.
As well as being stylish, it’s functional too with four generous drawers so you can stash all your hallway clutter neatly away.
Give your tiles a fresh look with these Flying Duck Tile Stickers from Spin Collective, £20.
Replacing bathroom and kitchen tiles can be expensive and, let’s face it, a bit of a faff.
If your tiles have seen better days, those clever folks at Spin Collective have come up with a genius way of giving them a new look with minimum fuss with these Flying Duck Tile Stickers.
Easy to apply and, most importantly, easy to remove, they are suitable for use in both the kitchen and bathroom.
And if these Hilda Ogden-esque flying duck motifs aren’t for you, you’ll be happy to hear that Spin Collective’s tile stickers are available in six other designs including stars, whales and pretty pink butterflies.

Brighten up a little one’s room with this Penguin Wallpaper from Bodie and Fou, £45.
Aside from dogs, penguins are my favourite animals and, having consulted some of my little kiddie friends, it seems this opinion is shared by most children.
So why not add some fun to a little one’s room with this Penguin Wallpaper from Bodie and Fou?
Available in four colourways - blue, silver, green and plum (shown here) - it features rows of the cute little creatures, and is the perfect way to add some interest to a plain wall.

Add some retro style to your living space with this Jonah 2 Seater Sofa from made.com, £499.
Buying a sofa is usually a huge investment, with some people willing to splash out what others will pay for a small car on the design of their dreams.
However, if you’re on a budget, or simply don’t fancy remortgaging to get the perfect sofa, made.com’s range could be for you.
My favourite is this Jonah 2 Seater Sofa which is available in a wide selection of colours.

Enjoy textured tableware with this Handmade Ceramic Cable Knit Sweater Bowl from Magpie Miller, £26.
I’ve inherited several mantras from my Mum when it comes to interiors, with one of my fave being “you can never have too much tableware”.
While her obsession is jugs which also double up as handy vases, I can’t resist a serving bowl. Great for everything from pasta and salads to giant piles of Eton Mess and fruit salads, my cupboard is almost at bursting point.
However, I think I can make room for this gorgeous Handmade Ceramic Cable Knit Sweater Bowl from Magpie Miller.
I love its wobbliness and the cable knit design which adds a touch of humour and is sure to make this bowl a favourite for years to come.
Keep your dirty laundry in its place with this Moeve Laundry Basket - Bamboo/Canvas from Amara Living, £83.25.
I don’t know about you, but my laundry basket isn’t the most attractive thing in the world, still, hidden away in the cupboard, it doesn’t really need to be.
However, if you haven’t got somewhere to stash yours, or prefer to keep yours in your bedroom or bathroom, chances are you‘ll want something rather stylish.
This Moeve Bamboo and Canvas Laundry Basket from Amara Living is just the thing to neatly hide away your dirty laundry and, as it is super stylish, you won’t mind having it on show.
Plus, being made from bamboo, it’s eco friendly which means you can feel a tad less guilty about all those loads of washing.

Whilst here at Furnish, we have hundreds of glamorous, elegant, funky and retro bedside tables to choose from, my search for the perfect pair is still very much on. I have been struggling to find the exact vintage yet stylish look I’m after.
I’d all about given up when I came across this Percy Wood Bedside Cabinet from Oliver Bonas, which is part of their Old Boys Club cabinetry range.
As well as being super stylish, it has plenty of drawers and cubby holes to keep all your bedside necessities neatly stashed away and, very cleverly, comes in both left and right hand varieties.
Create a fun kids' room with this Knitted Lambswool Cowboy Cushion from Folly, £39.95.
