This is one of the best doormats we've seen... in a while crocodile! Fun, quirky and on-trend in navy – what more could you ask for? If like us you love it you'd best snap it up quick, we have a feeling it won't be around for long.

A lightweight blanket is just the thing to dress homes for spring. This 100 per cent cotton blanket would make a jolly addition to any room. A classic grey stripe design is brought to life thanks to multicoloured pom-poms, injecting a hint of vibrant colour and a whole lot of fun.

Last month we reported that BHS is back and better than ever. The in-house design team are knocking it out of the park, it's incredible to think theses ceiling lights aren't from an Uber high-end designer.

These beautifully statement ceiling lights are from the glam new Miami range, all perfect to add style and sophistication to update living rooms.

There's more than meets the eye with this small but mighty stool. The beautifully rustic woven rattan instantly adds charm to children's rooms. More than purely decorative, brilliantly the lid lifts to reveal a hidden storage compartment for books and toys.
