Beaded accessories are right on trend at the moment, giving your home an individual, Bohemian feel. From placemats to lampshades, they’ll help infuse texture and colour into a plain background. Don’t overdo it, though, so you could end up with a fussy-looking result – mix beaded pieces in with other styles and textures for an individual but not overpowering feel.
