A placemat for everything

It's always amazed me how few cool, tasteful placemats there are out there. The usual options are cheesy faux leather stitched numbers, heavy glass ones or woven mats that little bits of food get stuck in (don't even bother using a cocktail stick to get them out - it doesn't work).
So, I was pleased to see these bargainous little beauties in Dunelm Mill's new collection ( At just £4.99 for a set of four - and with four matching coasters available for £1.99 - they're a slightly classier way to protect your table.

Light fantastic

It's hard to say what I love more about these lamps - the fact they're so simple, stylish and fun, or the fact they're called 'Kylie'. I've just bought two in red for my bedroom and they make the perfect bedside lamp - just bright enough to read by without blinding you, and with a surprisingly small footprint so that you can still fit your glass of water/alarm clock/bedtime bits and bobs on your bedside table. They look far more expensive than they cost (£35 each) and come in cheerful bright red, green or blue.
