There really are some killer home trends set for autumn 2014, and the summer holidays prove the perfect time to get a jump on things. We’ve created three edits to turn your decorating daydreams into a reality: New Metropole, Rustic Romance and offerings from Laurence Llewelyn-Bowen.
New Metropole is a contemporary yet highly luxurious reinvention of glamorous art deco; it’s sleek and sophisticated with ultra clean lines, and cool colours are the order of the day. Achieve geometric shaping with items such as the HOME COLLECTION Large Prism Mirror – available in two different sizes, this mirror is engraved with geometric lines, which form a frame around the mirror and intersect at the corners to make fetching diamond motifs. You can still feature plenty of soft textiles for a comfy home – we love the Gaudi Geometric Cushion, which radiates a deco feel. Other items in your home can be even simpler. Add a basic touch with the JAMES MARTIN BY DENBY Everyday Mugs (4 pack).
Discover the magic of Rustic Romance where majestic autumn conjures up fairytale visions; fantastical over-scaled imagery of beautiful botanics is key, and your vision is of a woodland retreat. We love the element of dark wood, so adore the Clifton Lamp Table especially. Offering a homemade touch is the Set of 3 Palm Leaf Baskets – Ivory and, of course, you have to include one of this season’s biggest trends with the Harriet Hare Table Lamp. Woodland animals are still all the rage this year.
Laurence Llewelyn Bowen wants to enable everyone to put everyday luxury centre stage in their home. Some of our favourites from his latest collection include the Laurence Llewelyn-Bowen Glamdelier Table Lamp – what a statement – and the Laurence Llewelyn-Bowen San Valentino Canvas for an artistic finish. To really up the ante on one of your rooms these holidays, the Laurence Llewelyn-Bowen Sinbad Wallpaper – Silver/White would offer a fab revamp.
