Add a patterned tile aesthetic to your home, thanks to M&S' new collaboration

From Victorian-style geometric designs to shimmering iridescent glazes, it's easy to fall in love with tiles – as the 101K followers of @ihavethisthingwithtiles will attest. But whether you're a hardcore tile nerd or more into the soft, fluffy side of home furnishings, M&S' new collaboration with Fired Earth, a popular Oxfordshire-based company that specialises in high-end tiles in striking colours and patterns, has something for everyone.

Having dug through Fired Earth's extensive, decades-old tile library to create the 75-piece edit of bedding, towels and cushions, the M&S team has drawn on two of its most popular ranges for inspiration – the Paris tile collection, which is dominated by deep blues and antique sage tones, and the Marrakech line that nods to traditional Moroccan patterns in muted, earthy shades. We're eyeing off the tasselled Sofia cushion in faded red cotton-linen (£35), the Isabelle reversible bedding set in an intricate navy and white print (from £49.50) and the plush Marrakech towels in souk-inspired shades of turmeric and pink (from £12.50). Perfect for bringing the magic of tiles into your home – no grouting required. From £3.50, marksandspencer.com

This bestselling author's new novel will make you fall in love the normalcy of everyday life

There's always something that we can rely on to bring us joy – that bag of paprika crisps or another viewing of Schitt's Creek. In All Lovers In The Night (Pan Macmillan) – the third novel from acclaimed Japanese author Mieko Kawakami, out today – the thing that gets 34-year-old Japanese freelance proofreader Fuyuko excited about life comes about by chance. At face value, Fuyoko's life seems mediocre and lacklustre. That is, until she meets – and starts to have romantic feelings for – an older physics teacher, Mitsutska. Their weekly cafe meet-ups shortly turn into a source of uninterrupted elation for Fuyoko – and for readers, too.

"Kawakami's writing is a joy to read," says Stylist Loves writer Kiran Meeda. "She has an effortless way of turning the mundanity of Fuyoko's day-to-day into detailed occasions that I want to know more about, whether it's the friendship she has with her only friend and fellow proofreader Hijiri and their back and forth about the art of proof-reading or her transition from someone who hardly ever drinks to ordering the largest sized sake bottle every night. Though the everyday is more interesting than you'd think, this is a book that's really about Fuyoko discovering happiness, whether it's via simple chats with Mitsutska or embracing her introverted ways." £14.99, Bookshop.org
