Portuguese Handmade Purple Water Glasses, £50.40, from JasmineWay

Brighten up your dining table with these Portuguese Handmade Purple Water Glasses from JasmineWay, £50.40.

One of my New Year’s resolutions is to drink more water – something I’m pretty rubbish at doing.

So I’ve decided to invest in some pretty new water glasses to motivate me and ensure I’m getting my daily dose of H20.

We have some beautiful glass tumblers here at Furnish, but it’s these Portuguese Handmade Purple Water Glasses from JasmineWay that have really caught my eye.

They’ve been pressed by hand using a traditional mould, and their vibrant colour means they’ll make drinking water far more glamorous.

Perfect for everyday use, they’re also pretty enough to adorn your dining table at supper parties.

Danish Style Rocking Chair, £225, from Graham & Green

Add some classic design to your space with this Danish Style Rocking Chair from Graham & Green, £225.

I’ve always had an obsession with rocking chairs which, I’m sure, stems from my love of the chair my paternal grandmother had in her home when I was a little girl.

This Danish Style Rocking Chair from Graham & Green is absolutely perfect for my home and I can’t wait to get my hands on it.

With the appalling weather showing no side of abating and Christmas cheer well and truly over, I don’t know about you, but I’m planning on spending lots of time curled up on the sofa.

Memo Postcard, £9.95, from Design My World

Get organised for the New Year with this Memo Postcard from Design My World, £9.95.

One of my New Year’s Resolutions is to be more organised and better at remembering where I am meant to be and when.

It seems my family feel the same way as I was bought not one but two calendars and a rather snazzy diary.

However, I’m also going to be investing in this Memo Postcard from Design My World which is just the ticket for jotting down important things such as remembering the milk and not forgetting to buy the car tax.

Made from glazed ceramic, it comes with a pen so you can effortlessly scribble your To Do list and then wipe clean when it’s done.

Would make a nice change from a paper pad by the telephone, or a useful addition to the kitchen for shopping reminders.

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.
