The snowy paper tree costs £50 from Next. The baubles shown on the tree are part of a 50 piece mixed set and are only £10.

Other silver and ice decorations are available from Next to complete the look.

Next purple and teal Bloom floral wallpaper

next-purple-bloom-wallpaper    next-teal-bloom-wallpaper

Wallpaper is a great way of adding colour and design into a room. It doesn’t necessarily have to be used on every wall – having wallpaper on a single wall can prove to be a great statement and add extra interest without being overpowering. Plus, it’s less work to do and costs less!

We’ve noticed that Next have a few nice wallpapers in their current collection, including the Bloom floral design. Available in a choice of purple (which isn’t too purpley – it’s more plum) or teal, it lives up to its name by featuring big flower blooms.

The paper is sourced from renewable, sustainable forests and a roll of each wallpaper is £15 from Next.
