Give your guests a warm welcome with this Hand-le Shiny Aluminium Door Handle from Dutch by Design, £59.95.

As interiors products go, door handles aren’t usually the sexiest or most interesting of pieces in the home. Generally considered functional, they tend to be plain and unadorned.

But if you’re looking to make real impact with your front door and give your guests a welcome they’re sure not to forget, then you need look no further than the Hand-le Shiny Aluminium Door Handle from Dutch by Design.

Crafted from super shiny aluminium, this door handle is a faithful replica of an open human hand which is sure to give your guests a surprise.

Fair Isle Knitted Cushion, from £22, from Rose & Grey

Add a cosy touch with this Fair Isle Knitted Cushion from Rose & Grey, from £22.

We may be already thinking about trends for spring/summer, but first there’s the rest of winter to get through.

And if the weather turns out to be anything like January and February last year then it’s probably going to be a bit chilly.

Which is why I’m going to keep things cosy with lots of cushions and throws, and while I can’t say I really need another cushion, I just can’t resist this gorgeous one from Rose & Grey.

Inspired by Fair Isle jumpers, this cushion is made from 100% lambswool, features a retro pattern, and is available in two sizes. The monochrome pattern will look perfect teamed with a bold sofa or against crisp white bed linen.

Dragonfly Napkin Rings, £19.95, from Daisy West

Create an elegant dinner table with these Dragonfly Napkin Rings from Daisy West, £19.95.

I’m not one for formal dining – even when entertaining friends I much prefer everyone tucking into one massive pot rather than having lots of plates and fourteen different forks.

But every now and again, I like to pull out the stops, especially for a special occasion.

You don’t see napkin rings that often any more but we have some gorgeous ones to choose from here at Furnish, and these Dragonfly Napkin Rings from Daisy West definitely make it worth investing in some proper linen napkins.

Get healthy in the New Year with this stylish Bugatti Vita Citrus Juicer from John Lewis, from £139.95.

So the New Year is almost upon us and that means you’ll be surrounded by people telling you they’re on a health kick – how they’re going to go to the gym every night, how they definitely won’t be eating chocolate ever again and so on and so forth.

Juicing is one recent health fad and I’ve had many a friend tell me just how amazing it is. So, that's it, I'm going on a juice diet on the 2nd January 2014.

Of course, I won’t be getting just any old juicer, oh no, I need one that’s really going to work and look stylish too.

Which is why I’m splashing out on this Bugatti Vita Citrus Juicer from John Lewis which is great for adding a touch of retro style to your kitchen.
