Coming up with home decor ideas can be a bit of a tough task, particularly if you’re planning a total revamp or starting from scratch in a new-build home.
Paint and wallpaper might be the most obvious changes you can make to a room, but it’s the accessories that make a house feel like a home. The right accessories – think vases, cushions, candles, throws and decorative trinkets – will perfectly set the tone for any style from cottagecore to Scandi.
However, with so many online homeware stores offering thousands of products, picking out home decor can be an overwhelming task – so we’re gathering together all our favourite items here.
From quirky home accessories you won’t find on the high street to budget homeware to bring a touch of style to everyday life, read on for our favourite home decor items available to buy now. We’ll be updating this list every week, so you know it will always have the latest buys!

Pumpkin Harvest Dish Towel
September marks the start of autumn here at YourHomeStyle, and if you’re anything like us, you already can’t wait to switch out your summer staples in favour of something a bit more snug.

Set of Two Luxury Cushions
Although it might seem simple, something as small as replacing your cushions can completely transform the look of your home. We particularly love these ones from Made.com because they have a subtle vintage style, plus the blush pink piping gives them an understated edge. Oh, and they come in a set of two!

Background 2 Woven Throw
We’re always looking to add versatile pieces to our styling collection, so we were super excited when we spotted this beautiful woven throw from online homeware shop, Fy. Throw it over your sofa for a cosy autumnal feel or use it as a wall hanging to create a feature – then swap it over when your home is in need of a refresh.
Tie-detail duvet cover set
Sometimes it’s the little details that make all the difference in a home, which is why we love the dainty bows on this H&M duvet cover. The dark grey shade is the perfect tone for teaming with earthy shades – try styling it alongside some wooden accents for a chic, autumnal look.
Borough Dish Rack
Ok… we know that a dish rack might not be the most glamorous of décor accessories, but as something that you use every day, it’s worth investing in one that’s stylish as well as practical. Garden Trading’s Borough dish rack features enough room to store plates, bowls, glasses and cutlery simultaneously, and looks right at home in a country-inspired or Scandi-style home. What’s not to love?!
Mango Wood Medium Hurricane Candle Holder
Nothing says cosy like the flickering glow of a candle, especially when it’s inside a sleek hurricane lantern. This one from The White Company is hand-blown in India, and features a natural mango wood base that’s just the right size for a small pillar candle. Try styling it on your fireplace surround for a sleek but snug autumnal feel.
Brown House Doctor Wooden Coffee Table Tray
If, like us, you’re already planning your autumn tablescape, you won’t want to miss this rustic wooden tray from House Doctor. It makes a great base for a statement vase, candle or seasonal accessory – we’ll be styling ours with ceramic pumpkins and firefly lights!
Easy Care Organic Cotton Double Duvet Cover
Available in white, nougat, cream and cool grey, the organic cotton fabric in this John Lewis bedding has been pre-relaxed using water jet machines, meaning that little to no creasing will occur after you’ve washed it. Sleek, minimalist and no ironing? We’re on board!

White Small Pampas 8 Stem Bunch
We’re huge fans of all the items in I Saw It First’s new homeware range, but these pampas stems really caught our eye. They’re perfect for adding a bit of natural texture to a space, and they make a great, cost effective alternative to fresh flowers. Try styling them in a statement vase to jazz up your mantelpiece.
Postery Orange Beach Poster
We’re always looking for places to buy affordable art online, so we were super excited when we realised Missguided’s new homeware range includes a collection of trending prints. This A3 beach poster is one of our favourites from the range – it’s printed on really great quality paper, and it makes a fantastic addition to a feature wall.

What’s more, there’ll be plenty of clay left so you can continue to fill your home with your very own creations, or even gift them to your loved ones. As personalised homeware goes, you can’t get any better than this!
Here at YourHomeStyle we’ve been obsessed with Smeg appliances for years, so we were super excited when we found out that the iconic Italian brand has released its first ever range of cookware.
The collection, which includes a casserole dish, frying pan and wok, features Smeg’s signature curved shape and statement colours, as well as a non-stick primer coating which allows you to cook without using extra oil.
We’d have all three items from the collection in our kitchen like a shot, but our favourite has to be the 50s style wok – it’s definitely an investment piece, but it’s sleek, understated, and will last you for years.

Here at YourHomeStyle we can’t wait for the world to return to normal so we can get travelling again.

Summer isn’t over just yet, but even when the autumn weather begins to roll in, this Oliver Bonas tea towel will continue to bring a little bit of sunshine to your kitchen. Go all out and buy the matching mug to give your space a year-round lift!
Lotus Green Accent Chair
Featuring plush green velvet and a beautiful Art Deco-inspired shape, this petal accent chair from Beautify is such a versatile piece. It’ll look wonderful in a dressing room, function as an extra seat in your living room or even add a luxury feel to a hallway – simply add a beaded cushion to make a sophisticated yet stylish statement.
Mabel Floral Beaded Basket
Okay… we know that £68 is pretty extortionate for a basket, but this one from Anthropologie is pretty much an ornament in its own right. Featuring beautifully delicate glass bead embellishments on wipe clean cloth, it won’t only add an extra storage solution to the room you choose to style it in – it’ll add an impressive decorative touch too.
Japanese Bike Framed Wall Art
If the Tokyo Olympics have had you gripped in front of the TV screen for the past couple of weeks, this retro-look bike poster with Japanese characters will serve as the perfect reminder of the highlight of 2021’s summer of sport.

Inspired by Moroccan markets, this unique mirror is suitable for use indoors or outdoors. We love the idea of styling it outside as an eye-catching piece of garden wall art.
Ombré-look accessories are everywhere right now, but this bargain £6 planter from Tesco’s Fox and Ivy homeware brand is proof that on-trend doesn’t have to mean pricey! Those pastel sunset colours would complement a Santa Fé style scheme or decor inspired by Miami pastels. And if you love the look, Tesco sell matching tealight holders for just £2.50 each.
Warm White LED Fairy Lights
Bring a slice of summer to your sofa with this lemon-tufted cushion from Marks & Spencer. We love the tufted lemon pattern, adding texture to a deliciously uplifting design guaranteed to add a touch of zing to any corner of your home. The pure cotton cover is machine washable, too, so you can keep it clean with ease.
Marble Side Table
We’re absolutely loving John Lewis’s Anyday range, which offers the brand’s trusted quality and style at an ultra-affordable price. A real travertine table could easily set you back hundreds of pounds, but you can grab this sleek black side table, topped with real marble, for just £99.
Hiba room divider
La Redoute’s clearance sale lasts all weekend, so it’s the perfect time to grab a bargain from the chic French brand. The Hiba screen immediately caught our eye – a room divider is such a great idea to keep your work and leisure time separate if you’re working from home. We love the industrial faux-locker look, and at 40% off it’s a total steal!
Artificial House Plant in Textured Pot
Fresh, green and hyper realistic, this faux houseplant from M&S is perfect for breathing new life into the areas of your home that don’t get much natural light. Style it on a tray alongside your favourite seasonal candle for a sophisticated display.
Hammered Large Plate, Brass
If your coffee table is looking a little bit lacklustre, this hammered brass plate is a great investment piece. You can style it with pillar candles or seasonal treasures to bring a relaxed, boho feel to your living room.
Tasselled Cotton Rug
Thanks to its soft, powder pink shade, this H&M rug makes a soothing addition to a bedroom or dressing room. Our favourite feature? Its cotton content is fully recycled, so it doesn’t just look good – it does good too!
Warm White LED Fairy Lights
Whether you style them on open shelving or intertwined between the leaves of your favourite houseplant, this string of micro fairy lights plugs into a handy USB port, so you can give your home office a magical glow all year round. They spread over 10m of wire and are fully bendable, plus, they’re safe to use around fabrics. What’s not to love!
Grey Metal and Mango Wood Side Table with Storage
Here at YourHomeStyle we believe you can never have too much storage, and it’s even better when it’s hidden. This Maisons du Monde coffee table has a handy leather strap, so you can lift up the mango wood lid and hide away any bits and pieces you don’t want on show within seconds.
Dynamic Impression Poster
In a chic combination of ecru and navy blue, this striking piece of abstract wall decor has been lovingly designed by Moe Made It, a Danish design studio based in the heart of Copenhagen. Printed on high quality fine art paper, it makes a great addition to a feature wall, but we think it looks best styled solo on a sleek travertine table.
Lohko Rose Pink Floral Inlay Bedside Cabinet
We’ve fallen head over heels for this beautiful floral cabinet – not only is its soothing pink shade perfect for styling in a bedroom, but its double-door compartment makes it ideal for storing away surplus blankets during the summer months.
Hand-Tufted Abstract Cushion
Okay… we’ll admit that £78 is pretty pricey for a cushion, but this one from Anthropologie is sure to play the starring role in any room. We love the combination of colours in the hand-tufted embellishments – they’ll breathe new life into your sofa in no time!
Tiger Bath Mat
If your bathroom is in need of brightening, this fluffy cotton tiger mat is perfect for you. Style it next to a big leafy houseplant (these are the best places to buy houseplants online) for sophisticated jungle vibes.
Rattan Storage Footstool
With its chic combination of natural rattan and pink velvet, this study storage stool from Beautiful perfectly blends bohemian and luxury-look décor. It makes an ideal home for hair tools, accessories or shoes, and doubles up as a handy stool for your dressing room.
Matisse Cutout Pink Poster
We really love the abstract design on this Matisse-inspired wall decor, but the thing we love the most is the fact that it’s made with sunlight-resistant, water-based inks. This means that the colours will stay vivid and bright no matter where you style it, so you can keep enjoying your print year after year.
Habitat Nordic Spring 4 Seater Bistro Set
If you’re after new, seasonal garden furniture, this vibrant pink and orange bistro is perfect for the warm summer months. Style it alongside festoon lights and a potted palm for a fun, festival feel!
