The 2010 IKEA catalogue just landed on my desk, and it’s packed full of exciting new designs. This gorgeous new ‘BARBAR’ bird tray has got to be my favourite new accessory. It’s 33cm x 33cm, and I love the little coloured birds pattern. Hurrah for IKEA prices – it’s just £4.99, so even I can afford this one! – Ellie

I’ve just seen the latest wallpaper and fabric design from Lewis & Wood. ‘Bewick Birds’ is inspired by the work of Thomas Bewick, a wood engraver who published the History of British Birds in 1797. I think this paper would make a stunning feature wall. Although it’s a traditional design, birdy patterns are all the rage at the moment and it could look contemporary used in a striking teal and chocolate scheme:

The wallpaper is £46 per roll, and the fabric is £44 per m, so this is a treat to save up for. The good news is you won’t need much to make a big impact. Check out these other beautiful bird buys. – Ellie
