1 Turkish delight

Online store Anjelique.me is a treasure trove of Turkish-inspired design and fashion. Founders Inci Malik and Ebru Berge were inspired by Istanbul's emerging pop culture to create a collection that is fashion-forward and eclectic, but also embraces high quality materials and craftsmanship.

2 Old school charm

We love these retro-style vinyl floor tiles from Zazous. They're made in France and are durable, self-adhesive and comfortable to walk on. We'd use them to liven up a hallway, but they'd make an eye-catching addition to any room.

3 Blissful shower, high-tech style

Proving that you can never have too much technology in the home, Hansgrohe has launched the RainBrain, a digital control centre for the shower. The mini computer controls shower operation, jet types and temperature, as well as any light sources integrated into the shower and music selection, through a Bluetooth-compatible smartphone or media player. You can preset all your preferences with the help of a "shower butler". Showering may never be quite the same again.

4 Chilled out

Royal VKB has harnessed the natural cooling properties of terra-cotta to create its stylish Water Carafe. Cooling occurs by natural evaporation through the pores of the terra-cotta, so you can leave your carafe in the sun and it'll still serve up a refreshing drink. A silicone base will also prevent the carafe from scratching your table.
