Lately, it seems so many outlets are upping?their interiors-game. The wonderful thing is that when it comes to home decor and accessories, there truly is something for everyone with more options – and varied price points – than you could throw some potpourri at. Creating your own personal space can be a tricky task, especially if you’re looking?to break tradition or trends so it’s worth spending that bit more time and effort acquiring?key pieces that complement your personal style as well as reinvigorate?a room. ?I’ve always liked?Urban Outfitters?for certain’things; they do retro quirky pieces almost better than anyone but their home section is worth mentioning all on its own. ?Scroll for our pick of 10 items we’re currently coveting, all available to shop now:
Heart Neon Table Lamp, ?
Neon lighting, when done subtly, can look tasteful. This cute pink lamp was made for your bedside table.
Marble Print Duvet Set, ?40-70
Chic, monochrome and so very on trend, this marble bedding will complement a room with a cool colour palette.
Daisy Metal Banner, ?
This metal daisy garland is ideal if you’re looking to add some femininity to your surroundings without going overboard.
Palma Fringe Window Curtain Panel, ?
What I love about this mini tassel fringe-trimmed window curtain is that it doesn’t look too heavy, like it would weigh?the room down or become its centre piece. It’s subtle and should help the room retain soft, natural lighting.
Arc Vanity, ?
Does this simple and modern vanity with an arc-shaped mirror not belong in the bedroom of your dreams?
Shearling Boo Pillow, ?100
Sit back and relax with this oversized soft fleece ‘boyfriend pillow’ that’s portable or perfect for lounging around in, should you wish to remain indoors as the weather gets cooler.
Disco Pineapple Sipper Cup, ?
Behold, this fine, large, golden, mirrored pineapple that you can store?alcohol?in. It doesn’t go with anything in your home/apartment but do you really care? Start planning your bank holiday barbeque now and break out those cups. Yes, we know it’s ever-so-slightly kitsch but there are times when?occasion calls for it.
Olinda Speckled Ceramic Ring Holder, ?5
Never lose a ring again with these standout, practical ring holders. Available in three colours.
Plaid Waffle Knit Throw Blanket, ?39
A throw blanket in waffle-knit cotton with an oversized plaid finished with knotted tassels for a decorative touch. Draped over couches, chairs or your bed, this is a cosy-cute addition to any space.

Both adorable and practical, this?elephant-shaped mug not only holds your tea (well, obviously) but also comes with a little compartment to place your tea bag after you’re done brewing. Perfect.
