With every animal print you can imagine being worked into fashion design, across the high street, it was inevitable that it would also feature strongly in homeware design too.

We headed Zara Home and discovered the brand who has sell out animal pieces in their clothing collections, also has some key pieces in homeware using patterns inspired by zebras, leopards and snakes.

The bathroom, bedroom and lounge are all catered for.

Colour block – a trend that comes and goes across the interiors world but with the abundance of strong products on the current market, it’s definitely sticking around for now, is proving popular and is an easy look to achieve and evolve with homewares through the changing season – refreshing with different cushions, throws or artwork. Plus it’s also easy to update with a fresh coat of paint on a single wall.

It’s about picking a few strong colours that sit well together and emphasising with accessories in the same tone. For example -A bright yellow wall, a green sofa with green cushions and then dashes of orange in the curtains or rug. Keep patterns to a minimum and break up with lots of white and wood to ensure the few colours stand out strong and bold.

This trend is really aided by the great selection of bold coloured modern silhouette sofas currently filling high street homeware stores. Head to Made, John Lewis or Ikea for a range of affordable options. There are great options in the perfect colours of the year – emerald greens, mustards and deep rich blues.

You can’t go wrong with monochrome, and typography in homeware is still strong for this season.

We love this Bon Voyage Paris cushion from Southwood Stores – a great find in their sale; it was £42.00 but now it’s £30.

We are getting geared up for Autumn and with that comes cosy nights in with comfy cushions and fluffy throws. Tactile homeware is everywhere right now and today we share some of our favourites.

Velvet continues to be the fabric of choice this year on chairs and sofas, along with cushions. Now we are seeing velvet on lighting and lampshades like the ceiling pendant pictured from Rockett St George. [ there is also a table lamp version ]

Layer your room with tassled, fringed and pom pom cushions, throws and rugs. The more layers the better. When we look at colours for Autumn we are seeing lots creams, terracotta, red and grey. This is a lovely pallete to work with and perfect for the season.
