Home Decor Ideas & Inspiration
Bowls! Lamps! Chairs! Rugs! You’re going to want to see these
Ah, September. Otherwise known as the new new year. The perfect time to refresh your life, get things back on track and, if you’re lucky, invest in some new season bits. And when it comes to homeware, we’re it. From muted colours to textures that’ll make you happy the heatwave is over (if you weren’t anyway), here’s our round-up of the best of the best right now.
These are the little-but-large wins that your guests will notice but that don’t require an entire redesign of your home. We’re talking new tableware, coasters that you’ll actually want to use, and candlesticks that’ll hold up the flames all winter long. If you’re into trying out trends but don’t have the confidence (or budget) to totally restyle your home to make way for the flavour(s) of the month, adding thoughtful new pieces into your home will create a marked difference.
Whether you’re moving house or you’re just in the mood to treat yourself, there are some major items that have your name on them. This L-shaped sofa? The stuff of dreams. Kitchen chairs that are as comfortable as they are chic? Yes please. And don’t get me started on the walnut-framed chair that is, quite literally, perfect. Which will you pick?
Lucky for all of us, there are quite a few home trends knocking around – so there’s pretty much guaranteed to be something for everyone. Our favourites, in no particular order, are: damson, that deep purple colour that just screams autumn; modern silhouettes and shapes (think hard edges and solid materials); and classic, English-inspired pieces that are equal parts quaint and quirky.
Last but not least: lighting. Something we all need but most of us take for granted or don’t take that seriously. With the days getting shorter comes the desire (personally) to turn off the overhead lights and flick on the lamps – of which we’ve got many to choose from. From floor lamps that get the job done to table lamps with unique stem designs that’ll grab the attention of anyone who enters your home, we’ve got them all.
