As grey and yellow continue to be two of the most popular colours to update and brighten homes, editor Lynn Stewart picks a few favourites to inspire you.

We fell in love with this super-cute linen bread bag the minute we spotted it. This breathable linen bread bag with its hand-printed design and sunny colour is perfect for storing all breads and pâtisserie. The linen material allows air to circulate, keeping everything inside fresh and delicious, and it looks great too. Practical stuff that makes us smile.

Bedroom storage can be tricky – you want something with plenty of space that looks good too. This chest of drawers features three generous drawers, and is finished in mango wood with subtle brass-plated legs and handles. With its nod to mid-century styling, it will work well in both modern and more traditional schemes.

New lighting is a quick and easy way to update the look of a room, and it’s also a simple way to introduce a pop of colour. This tactile wooden base reminds us of a beautiful chess piece, and the mustard-yellow of the wood contrasts beautifully with its white shade. The ideal way to brighten a dull corner, this will look just as eye-catching switched on or off.

Storage beds tick all the boxes when it comes to saving space and hiding away bulky, awkward items that take up so much room. And when you find one as sumptuous as this, with a tall statement headboard upholstered in mink velvet fabric, you can clear the clutter in style. Ideal for storing spare bedding, suitcases or winter wear, it’s an easy way to claim back a bit of living space.
