Rich shades of emerald and teal are the go-to this season. Lush velvets and exquisite textures give extra depth and dimension to shades of green. Don’t be afraid to experiment with bold prints and team with ever-popular blush hues.

Clever ways to use mirrors in your space

If the change in season is making your home feel a little dark and gloomy, think about adding a mirror to open up your space and reflect light.

Mirrors are one of the handiest décor items in the home, not only do they add style to a space they are also multifunctional. Mirrors can make a space feel bigger, can be positioned to reflect light, and can also connect different areas of the home.

They can be a permanent fixture, such as a mirror splashback or mirrored wall, or can be wall-hung or freestanding and easily moved.

When positioning your mirror, always consider what it will be reflecting. Light, plants or a favourite artwork are all great reflections, the neighbour’s bins or a cluttered table are not.

Size also matters when it comes to mirrors. Oversized mirrors can be used in a small area, like a hallway or small entrance to create the illusion of added space.

Small mirrors can also work well as part of a gallery wall to add visual interest, or to reflect something specific like an artwork. Available in a plethora of styles and colours, mirrors can also work as artwork themselves.

Top tip: A large mirror can act as a substitute window in a windowless room.
