Coral accents

As tempting as it can be to let loose and paint one of your walls coral, that’s a quick route to falling out with your landlord forever (and losing your deposit). Instead, try adding some clever colourful pops – new cushions for the sofa, coasters, blankets, trays and other vibrant trinkets will all work well.

Get the look:

Velvet cushion cover – H&M, £6.99

Pom pom throw – Dunelm, £10

Geometric coasters – Etsy, £11.63

Round tray – Trouva, £36.52
