Sneak Peak: M&S Autumn/Winter 2013 home collection

With the skies grey and the airy blustery, the new autumn/winter ranges which are currently launching are looking as though they’d be right at home now during our ”summer”-time months. So wrap yourself up and relax with this preview of what will be in store this winter at M&S:

Shades of the club house: colours are deep, dark and warming; materials natural (leather, glass): just accessorise with open fire, magazine and dog (optional)…. There are unexpected, quirky details, such as this vintage-style lamp with bird motif:

Delicate tableware includes these Lace bowls:

Whilst for more practical, everyday use, go for the new compact range of bamboo furniture:

The collaboration with Conran contines with new furniture and accessories; cosy up in this deep Wollaston Loveseat:

Two of this year’s passions – grey and ombre (or is it dip dyeing?) – come together to create  these sultry, elegant glasses:

The best elements are decorative, detailed and patterned, as seen below, from the ornate metal ceiling light to the bed, with its deep buttoned headboard upholstered in tactile, neutral fabric. Finish the look with textiles and details in a mix of patterns and prints drawn with nostalgic or natural motifs:

Dulux Let’s Colour Awards

Dulux have launched their nominations for their new Let’s Colour Awards 2013: here’s the pick of my favourites:

Lindsey Lang mixes great colour palettes and geometric patterns on her fresh, contemporary homewares: even the humble trivet doesn’t escape her attention…

Designers Guild Designers Guild paved the way years ago with Tricia Guild spearheading the colour movement: there will be no rooms filled with bland neutrals or dull bieges when she’s around… Their fabulous digitally printed dip-dye effect wallpaper Seraille is up for an award….
Conran for Marks & SpencerTwo of the UK’s most established brands, Conran and Marks & Spencer joined forces to create a new home collection, on sale via M&S stores. Injections of colour and quirky design details not normally seen on the high street ensured this range looks as good in most homes as it did on the shop floor.

Present and Correct

Present and Correct are THE retailers of stationery (and more) of the moment. Do click through to see their website if you don’t know them already: they make me want to sweep my entire desk contents into the bin, and re-stock with their products: I’m sure I’d be more productive…..

They were nominated for their Organise collection, see above for a selection of products.

And finally, a nomination for the wonderful Melinki collection by Scion:

I’ve included their rugs before when they were launched, and now Scion‘s already-award-winning Melinki collection is up for another, well deserved tribute. The fabric designs are innovative, versatile, and importantly, easy to live with.

You can see Dulux’s nominees for interiors, as well as fashion and more via my link on the Find the Details facebook page. Let me know which you’d vote for….
