"It will instantly elevate the way you display flowers in the home.
"Designed to be a focal feature, the vase is a way to add a touch of luxury.
"It will also draw attention to the accent of your favourite fresh flowers."
Add beauty to your bathroom
The last thing you want is for the bathroom to look cluttered, as that will only serve to cheapen the look, so it's really important to choose a few items carefully.
Bruna says: "When it comes to our bathrooms, it can be a challenging time trying to find the perfect way to display our items practically but still retain a sense of style.
"Available in three different colours, this three-piece textured bathroom accessory set from Studio, priced £7.50, is the perfect way to add a little bit of luxury to your bathroom.
"You can also display your essentials in a fashionable way that compliments the overall aesthetic of the room."
Adding some ambient lighting is a surefire winner too.
Bruna says: "Having your home flooded with the main light can be intrusive at the best of times, so incorporating lamps is a great way to add an ambiance to the room that is calming.
"Floor lamps are extremely stylish and add a sophisticated element to the room.
"These tripod floor lamps are available from B&M, priced £55, and come in copper and black, matte black and chrome and silver."
A statement piece not only looks great, but can also be a conversation starter.
Bruna says: "If you’re looking for a way to add a contemporary piece of furniture to your home, then look no further.
"The Kaili Beige Tray from Kave Home is the perfect addition to any lounge area and is the perfect way to stylishly balance your favourite drinks or snacks on.
"Priced at just £7.50, the piece is a cheap and aesthetically pleasing alternative to an ordinary tray."
Devil's in the detail
There's a lot to be said about the impact of soft furnishings, and the accessories you choose that add comfort and style, in both the bedroom and living room.
Joan says: "Whether you’re a fan of dark or natural interiors, B&M’s Ebony Leaves Mono Duvet Set, £18, works well.
"It’s reversible, so you can enjoy the sumptuous monochrome tropical pattern on one side or flip it over to the neutral side and create a more relaxing spa-style vibe."
In terms of embellishing a bed or a sofa, you also can't go wrong with a cushion, or a throw.
Joan says: "B&M’s tasselled and tufted boudoir cushions, £8, are ideal for adding comfort and texture to beds and sofas and give off a lovely, relaxed boho vibe.
"The Mandala Print Round Floor Cushion, £20, from Asda’s George Home range adds a sense of comfort to your lounge.
"With its detailed patterning and pom-pom trim, it adds a bit of decadence too."
Bruna adds: "Having a throw in your house is an essential part of creating a luxury space.
