Dulux’s Colour of the Year is Spiced Honey, because they reckon it has a raw, natural quality that works like a warm neutral, which makes it so adaptable to pairing with different materials and styles of decoration. Want a cosy atmosphere? Rich caramel tones? This is the paint for you. www.dulux.ie

I’m loving this Light My Fire Micheal cushion, it’s fancy — silk with complete interfacing and double layered cotton lining, rope braid edge trim and an original vintage button on the zip pull. A hand written luggage tag is attached to note the provenance of the fabric and care instructions. The price tag reflects it at €174, yikes. See more at www.vintagecushions.com

This pretty pattern is from the Argos Home collection, they are the Stockholm tea towels and they come in a generous five pack. €11.60 from Argos nationwide and www.argos.ie

Behold this beautiful wooden R shape that opens out to become a table lamp. It runs off a rechargable battery so it’s totally portable, just fold the R over to bring it on a trip, and open it out whenever you need it. It comes with a remote control with which you can switch between warm or cool light, or a funky option to slowly fade between the two. €90 from Designist.ie

This is the Frida Kahlo water bottle by Adam Regester and you can find it on Art Wow now for €23.20. www.artwow.com
