Mid-century-inspired homeware is a key trend for autumn and they don’t get more fabulous than this bright, graphic clock by M&S. Distinctly retro in feel, the cheerful colours give it the vibrant charm of Fifties style and make a refreshing alternative to conventional clocks. It looks vintage but has all the benefits of being new and is easy to mix and match in a modern scheme: hang one in the hallway or on a kitchen wall for maximum impact. Drawing the eye with its distinctive design, it adds character to a white interior and va-va-voom to black. Plus, the snazzy bobbles are sure to lift your spirits whenever you check the time.
