What to keep, what to ditch?

This year I will...up my eco credentials

2020 is all about sustainability. And with the high street launching ever more sustainable – and affordable – homewares, it’s simpler than ever to make an eco-pledge.

Go cool with a conscience and pick organic cottons, repurposed yarns, bamboo and recycled glass. Seek out plastic-free brands with zero-waste policies and low carbon footprints and create a planet-friendly home you’ll love forever. 

This year I will... go even greener

Going green is official for 2020. In more ways than one. 

Eco-chic, sustainable homeware is a key trend, but green hues are game-changing too. From rich emerald to spirit-lifting leaf and cool, neo-mint, green is the talk of the interiors world. And this all-embracing colour palette is set to sweep every area of our homes. In fact, online interiors hub,, has seen a 50% rise in searches for ‘green kitchens’ since 2018, while ‘green bedrooms’ and ‘green bathrooms’ are making their way on to the popular hit list.

This year I will... channel Great Gatsby

Just a teeny hint of glamour can upgrade a lovely home to a luxe home. As we step into a brand new decade, we do so with a nostalgic nod to the roaring 1920s. Yes, Art Dec cool has reignited our passion for all things Gatsby this autumn/winter and continues to inject an elegant opulence well into the next season. Think Jazz Age for the 21st century, with a hedonistic mix of fringed lampshades, opulent velvets, gold bar carts and bold animal prints – without the need for a bling-tastic budget.

This year I will…create a statement eau zone

Bathrooms are back. For 2020, your eau zone is stepping into the spotlight to become a statement-making sanctuary for all to admire. It’s a place to unleash a creative clash-up - think fabulous, geo tiles, a vintage-inspired brass shower, hi-tech, steam-free mirrors that play music and retro, glass globe lights all in one space. Try a bold print wallpaper in areas that aren’t too soggy and a black, gridded, Crittall-style shower screen for impact.
