    There’s such a stunning selection of shaped mirrors on the high street at the moment, such as these from Really Linda Barker and Graham & Brown, which instantly bring style and originality to a wall. My friend recently broke a large mirror in her home, but instead of throwing it away and thinking she’ll have seven years of bad luck, she salvaged a large piece of it and got a glazier to cut it into a leaf shape – it’s given her living room wall a pretty and unique touch – For more style inspiration click hereEmily

I’ve been thinking about sanding my bedroom floorboards and painting them white for a while now. I think I’m nearly ready to take the plunge! – Ellie
