Style influencer Erica Davies has followed herdebut interiors collection with QVC UK earlier this year, with a second homeware collection for Autumn-Winter,which launches on theonline shopping channel today.
Erica says, 'My collection started with the ideas that inspire my own home; typography, colour, print, textiles and vintage pieces. I receive so many messages and comments from my social media followers about the things I show that I have taken those requests as a starting point.'
After winning a huge fan base for the first interiors collection, with its mix of colours, patterns and textures, the second collection is all about bold on-trend prints, tropical accents and jewel tones – perfect for transitioning a room into the colder months.

Erica adds, 'Botanical print is my favourite trend at the moment, and the perfect way to inject some life into a room. Can’t make up your mind? Switch from floral to stripes depending on your mood, with my double sided cushion or throw'.
Alongside the rugs, cushions, throws and baskets are Christmas baubles, for those early birds, who like to start planning their festive schemes as soon as the kids go back to school.
Erica comments, 'Animal print was a huge fashion trend last season which shows no signs of stopping for AW19, and this bold and beautiful print is great for the home too. If you’re feeling wild, go for my foot stool, but you can also nod to the trend with some animal print baubles.'
