With summer winding down and the kids getting ready to go back to school, there’s no better time than Autumn to think about giving a fresh new look to your home. Whether you want to totally revamp a room, or simply update your surroundings with some finishing touches and accessories, here are some of the most exciting – and inviting – trends in home furnishings.
After a fun, colourful, contemporary feel? You’ll love the Urban Tribe edit: think geometric prints, bold hues, quirky accessories, and global inspiration. This trend is ideal for mixing elements to suit your individual taste – you can amp up the patterns and colours to full effect, or select a few favourites. Even a small change can make a big difference!
Going for the full refurb? Start with an anchor piece to build the room around, like this modern (yet comfy) modular corner sofa from Addison in a lush deep charcoal or a vibrant red, or the Paris Circular Dining Table with 4 chairs. (Don’t forget that Littlewoods offer a number ways to spread the cost – click here for more information!)
For smaller touches that make a big impact, consider adding accents in animal prints, such as these cushions in snakeskin, leopard, or zebra motifs, or ceiling pendants in an exciting range of chic colours and shapes. Let your imagination soar – combine colours, textures and patterns to create a look that expresses your creativity!
If contemporary is not your cup of tea, and you prefer a luxe take on classic refinement, we think you’ll fall in love with the absolutely lush Laurence Llewelyn Bowen collection. The master interior designer presents everything you need to transform your home into an elegant showcase for yourself, your family and guests.
From the cote couture pattern wallpaper to sumptuous bedding and artistic carpets and curtains, LLB has everything you could need to create the bedroom of your dreams. And with his trademark blend of both visual and tactile appeal, the rich colours and plush textures of the Canton collection of sofas and lavish cushions will turn your living room into an inviting oasis for guests. Complete the look with an elegant wall mirror – not only does it make a room look bigger, but when it’s a Laurence Llewelyn Bowen mirror, it’s a work of art that complements and completes your new interior.
