I love to accessorise a home. A little something here, a little something there - it's all those small things that add up to creating the look and feel of your home, even if you're not aware of it at the time.

Sometimes you don't even realise you have a style until you step back and look. is even counts when you're going for a basic, no-frills look - when what you see is what you get.

When a home is raw and stripped back to basics, there's no room for excess.

This look has unisex appeal and will suit sharers or couples setting up home for the rst time because you can put it together without breaking the bank.

With neutral colours, rustic distressed wooden furniture and funky retro typography, it suits both men and women alike.

In fact, it's just what you need when you're hoping to keep things practical, as wel l as comfortable.

So, even if you don't have many little somethings, you'll soon agree that this is a look that always adds up.

Gardeners and campers are familiar with the quirky appeal of enamel. If you're actually doing a spot of gardening, rather than just chilling in the sunshine, then a cuppa always tastes better in your own trusty enamel mug.
