As new ranges of home accessories hit the high street stores ABIGAIL SALTMARSH looks at what's available for those who are either “skinted” or “minted”

With the beginning of 2010 come not only the sales of last year's hot home accessories but also the launch of some exciting new ranges.

At this time of year many of us are scraping together the pennies and if there's something new we need we will definitely be looking for a bargain.

Others, however, may have been saving, allocating some of the household budget for splashing out on that special something for the home that they've been waiting for.

Out there on the high streets of Norwich and in some of the independent shops around Norfolk, as well as on the internet, there are certainly some eye-catching items to choose from.

Vibrant cushions that will transform a space by bringing in a splash of different colour, elegant candlesticks that will bring a touch of glamour to your room and stylish ornaments that could well become talking pieces whenever you have visitors.

So whether you are “skinted” or “minted” - looking for something at a reduced price or are happy to pay a little more - there's plenty out there to have a look at.
