Sunshine On A Cloudy Day: 31 Bright Buys For The Home in 2022

It’s winter, we’re back inside our houses a lot. We may as well take it as our cue to brighten up the place – and our moods – with these jewel-like brights.

The days are short and the hours of darkness are long. Whilst we know that spring is only around the corner, it can be easy to submit to the January gloom. This year, though, we are, are taking a stand. Instead of being swallowed up by it, we vow to cheer up our surroundings with bright, jewel-like reminders of longer, sunnier days to come. Whether you choose to buy flowers, re-paint a room in a vivid shade, or invest in a piece that will lift the spirits, we promise you won’t regret it. Here are 31 beautiful jewel-hued pieces for the home to keep us going until the sun comes out.
