Hot Shopping! Ballet is having a moment right now and these ballet-inspired homewares will have you pirouetting around your living room in no time

En pointe! This week we've been inspired by the swirling drama and intrigue of the Bolshoi Ballet and the graceful elegance of our very own Darcey Bussell

Ballet is big business right now – the Bolshoi Ballet is back in town
amid swirling drama and intrigue and our very own Darcey Bussell is
in the limelight again as she gears up to judge Strictly Come Dancing 2013.

So if you want to capture a bit of the glamour and drama associated with this elegant art, take a peek at these ballet-inspired interiors. And jeté

1. Want to bring the ballet into your bedroom, but don’t want to upset your other half? This upholstered bed in ballet slipper pink is just the thing for adding a dash of romantic style to a bedroom without going overboard. Team with crisp white bedlinen to tone down the shade and add in some smart metallics for grown-up luxe. Not a tutu in sight. Take a curtsy.

St Germain bed in rose, £695,

2. Which little girl doesn’t dream of being a prima ballerina? This sweet bedlinen was designed by Darcey Bussell herself, so it should inspire the next generation of tiny dancers. Team with soft pink and white accessories for all out sugar-plum style. Now… good toes, naughty toes…

£30 for a single duvet set, Ashley Wilde.

3. Pirouette your way to cleanliness with this tutu-inspired shower curtain. It’s the very opposite of a sensible, practical curtain and all the better for it. Ideal for all you prima donnas out there, you can arabesque your way across the bathroom of a morning and leap into the shower in one elegant bound.

Flamenco shower curtain, £98, Anthropologie
