One of the easiest ways to change up your home/office hybrid is adding new art. Whether you’re a maximalist colour lover or prefer sleek monochrome interiors, there’s something for everyone on a budget. A pop of cheery pink is guaranteed to lift your spirits and this Matisse cut out pink poster starts from just £14.95 for a 30x40cm print. Add a thin black frame for £16.95 and that’s a combined cost of £31.95 (including free delivery!), minus the trip to IKEA.

Abstract styles are a great way of introducing colour to your walls. If you’re in need of good vibrations Wolf & Badger’s A3 print will bring sunny feels on the bleakest of winter days with its retro feel.

For style fiends, this Prada Marfa print is a chic reminder of more fashionable times. The monochrome print will slide into existing interiors as easily as you can say Miuccia, £34.95

Are you even an influencer if you don’t own one of Anissa Kermiche’s Love Handles vases? If you’ve been scrolling Instagram recently, you’ll have no doubt come across a range of posteriors mooning back from peoples’ mantels. If the £300 plus price tag is a little out of your reach, we love this nod to the body shape trend for only £30 from Rockett St George.

Whether it’s your bedroom or living room, simply swapping your curtains can make a huge difference to how a room looks and feels. This organic cotton tropical leaf print set will give you all of the airy beach house vibes, even if you’re in a box room in Brixton rather than Barbados, £24.99, H&M.

Is your overhead lighting situation casting unforgiving shadows on your face during Zoom calls? Switching to side lighting such as floor and table lamps is far more flattering. This stylish brass globe design, £40, Next, will still look good in your home once meetings start happening IRL again.

Speaking of light – if your interiors are lacking in natural daylight a mirror can help bounce it around a room and also make a space feel bigger. This gold rimmed circular style will work in every room, £45, Ikea. 

Have you been ignoring the tangle of jewellery on your bedside table? This arty stand is the perfect remedy to knotted necklaces and it’s only £15, Dunhelm.

Are you a green fingers failure? If lockdown has proven anything, it’s that keeping a plant alive is harder than it looks. Join the cheat club with some fauxliage like this cute succulent, £10, Matalam

Stuck for storage solutions? This gold cage side table has a removable top so it can double up as a handy space for stashing bits and bobs, £27.50.
