As a mother of two young children, the last two years have seen my home transform from a modern living space to a toy haven! As much as I like my littles to enjoy their toys, having a relaxing adult space in our home is essential. Displaying a few choice items can take away the feeling of chaos at the end of the day, replacing it with a sense of calm and style. So this week I’ve partnered with MicroMkt to bring you a modern living gift guide, showcasing a selection of their best items that will make your home super stylish!

Here are my MicroMkt must-haves!


Life is so busy that taking time out to relax is incredibly important. This throw is perfect for snuggling up in style, especially on those cold winter nights. Chunky knit is so on trend and in these colours it’s the ideal accompaniment for any colour scheme!

This clean, modern cushion with the hare design is one of my favourite picks. I love the injection of colour on the crisp, white background. This sophisticated piece would sit proudly in a snug or living area. It’s available in various other designs too, I love the idea of having scattering of cushions each with a similar yet distinctive print!

Whether you’re a plant lover or not, these pots offer chic design with a versatile edge. Maybe you’ll stack them or maybe you’ll fill them with decoration. Either way they will offer your home a quirky edge that will set you apart from the crowd!

Even the nursery is allowed to have a modern twist! Wall stickers are hugely popular right now and I just love how bold and colourful this is. We all want our children to dream big, there’s no time like the present to get them started!

I’m a big fan of the gold tones that have appeared on the market recently and it makes this piece stand out for all of the right reasons. I absolutely love its minimalistic, cool design!
