You can always rely on Ikea for a quick-fix of cheap design. Recently they’ve been encouraging us all to ‘Be Brave, Not Beige’ with a range of patterned textiles.
The latest catalogue includes the Unni Cushion, a brightly coloured cushion with a cartoon-like print, that reminded me somehow of the Yellow Submarine (it might be all the yellow in the print!). You may be reluctant to completely banish neutral colours from your home, but with a cushion priced just £7 is a good way to add a splash of colour.
