Time for a highland fling; With Burns Night approaching, turn on the tartan charm with Scottish-themed homeware.
Whether you're hosting a Burns supper or feeling inspired to give your home a highland kick, there are plenty of ways to do it.
Incorporating bold, traditional tartan might not appeal to the faint-hearted, but used judiciously, it can provide a delightful accent to a more muted colour scheme.
Add warmth and colour with checked throws and lampshades, or make a statement by papering one wall with a tartan print wallpaper. * For homeware ideas and advice on interior trends that won't break the bank, visit www.homesandbargains.co.uk Here's a selection of Scottish-themed treats...
