1. Tangy mustard
Mustard is hugely on-trend this season, and the tangy shade is the perfect way to bring some warmth into your home for winter. A few accent pieces, whether a lampshade, cushions or vases, can instantly give your home an eye-catching contemporary edge.
A statement chair is the perfect way to work the trend: we love the opulence of this mustard velvet number. Mix with accents of oranges and calm greys for a tranquil space, or set it against deep blues or forest greens for a bold look.

2. Nicely Nordic
Whether you like to bring the outdoors in with rustic accessories, or prefer the warmth of furs, chunky knits and cheerful snowy prints, the Nordic trend is a favourite for winter. For a warm and welcoming bedroom, this Nordic snowflake duvet cover is a winner. Team with wood pannelled walls and a string of twinkly fairylights for extra festive appeal.

3. Glam up with gold
Gold is a perennial favourite for winter. This year, why not tap into the trend for Seventies style and add a touch of drama with some theatrical (and camp!) accents to your home. This gold leaf mirror would make a stunning focal point over a fireplace. Set against dark grey walls for a sumptuous look that packs a visual punch.
For more seventies splendour, arrange a cluster of ostrich feathers in a gold vase or candle holder and liven up your drinks party with a golden pineapple lamp.

4. Jungle brights
Botanicals have been big this year, and the jungle trend is the perfect way to hot up your home for winter. Opt for strong colours in a clashing palette for a statement effect. A feature wall papered in a jungle print will look stunning alongside animal prints, exotic palms and retro furniture in natural rattan and bamboo.

5. Sophisticated pink
Jungle prints not your thing? For surprising sophistication, work this year's trend for soft, pastel pink - in part influenced by Pantone choosing Rose Quartz as their 2016 colour of the year. Forget girly bedrooms – a key piece in a pastel blush will add an instant touch of grown-up glamour to any space. We love this soft pink sofa with its refined proportions, wooden feet and back scroll.
