One of the happiest colours around, hold on to a sense of summer as long as you can with yellow accents and golden tones, says editor Lynn Stewart.

Team golden yellows with deep blues, navy or teal tones when you want to glam things up. It’s a luxe combination that works well in tucked-away corners. Don’t be put off using dark colours even if you are updating a small space – bold choices can give smaller rooms real impact and personality, particularly if you are decorating a room that doesn’t have any period details to focus on.

Position your mirror opposite a window, which will reflect the natural light and help increase the brightness of a room. This gorgeous Sunburst Mirror will draw the eye towards it and help to bounce light around in the prettiest way possible.
