Thinking of an interior update? Look no further than Marks & Spencers Autumn Winter 2019 range

I, like many of you, am saddened by the downward spiral that M&S seem to have got themselves into. Apart from Bra’s and pants, nothing in their fashion range has appealed to me for a long time. However they have excellent food offerings, and their interior products and furniture are stylish well made and well priced.

With the changing season as we move towards Autumn, we instinctively feel the pull towards a cosy, welcoming space to withdraw into.

Whether your interiors preferences are inspired by rich colours, warm tonal shades or restful neutrals M&S Autumn Winter collection offers simple stylish updates for any home to create that perfect retreat from the busy day.

         Contemporary designs are blended with classic influences to create a timeless collection that will give your home enduring style.

Decorative accessories and statement textiles offer an instant  interior refresh  alongside modern upholstery and furniture designed with on-the-go family living in mind.

 Seasonal colour highlights of peacock tones, sea foam and teal are paired back with an accent of warm nectarine to kick off the new season. Classics are re-imagined in casual shapes and textures, while layered textiles and metallic accessories offset easy living with a soft, modern glamour.

Decorative florals adorn plush velvets for a new take on maximalism, while delicate blush corals are paired with deep aquamarine and petrol tones for a bold yet sophisticated interior.

Underpinning the colour stories for the season, this new take on cleansing neutrals creates a stylish canvas on which to layer your favourite pieces- creating an oasis of tranquil, that will always remain timeless. Yet again it feels as if the Scandi look is a strong influence.Casual layering and relaxed textiles in calming tones of ecru and warm grey make for easy styling and create a war, serene palette for the home.

         This Autumnal story of rich mulberries spans a jewel-toned palette of deep boysenberry, rich oxblood and delicate heather.

Highlights of dark charcoal and black give this classic colour story a contemporary feel, while statement prints in casual fabrics are juxtaposed with marble and brass accents for a glamorous feminine collection of seasonal pieces.

Graham and Green

Below are the Spring Summer 2019 key looks from Interiors company Graham and Green . Many of the key trends seem to be carrying on from recent seasons these include Berber Rugs. Metallics are still around : rose gold and copper being the most popular. Neons and succulents are still with us, as are fifties and sixties inspired cane chairs on spindly legs. Talking of legs, G&G are selling a fine line in patterned and embossed ceramic pots that stand on tiny feet so they are slightly elevated from the surface on which they stand. Velvet in strong acid yellows and rich royal blues are still being used to cover sofas and chairs. There are some metallic mouse lamps – sure they are cute if thats your thing but personally I can’t stand rodents and prefer the birds shown in the image below. To sum up, it is a strong cohesive collection all fabulously styled.
