Our favourite autumnal home updates
There’s no shortage of stylish homeware and home accessories to covet this autumn, from River Island’s debut homeware collection to Bethan Gran’s collection for Anthropologie, plus these smoking hot new season interiors collections. We’ve seen Farrow & Ball release new paint shades at the annual London Design Festival, and we’ve seen gorgeous wild floral pattern make its way from Sanderson’s wallpapers onto Radley bags, from Morris & Co’s archived prints onto H&M’s clothing, and even fashion brand Shrimps have transferred their designs onto Habitat homeware. Aside from plenty of scalloped shapes, fringing and a touch from the cosmos, one of the biggest trends we’re seeing is autumn florals, and finding cool and unusual ways to bring the outdoors in – yes, even in cooler weather.
Here are some of our favourites…
1. PEN PAL
It was watching his wife, a professional calligrapher, work that inspired Tom Gyr of Tom’s Studio, to create these beautiful nib holders. Made in collaboration with Dorset wildflower artist Wilder + Wren, pressed flowers are set in an eco resin, complemented by a solid brass tail handcrafted on Tom’s Fifties lathe.
Prices start at £185 for a 17cm-long holder, tomsstudio.co.uk

2. SCULPTED SHAPES
We love this abstract table sculpture, not only for its striking shape and pleasing lines but also for its accessible price tag.
3. SWEET DREAMS
Soft to the touch and charmingly pretty, the pure cotton Giselle bedlinen set in Pink from Sophie Conran features an exquisite embroidered border with a climbing floral motif.
This set includes two pillowcases and a duvet cover, with prices starting at £132 for a double, sophieconran.com
4. NEXT LEVEL
The beauty of the Calligaris Circles shelving unit lies not just in its up-to-date blush pink tone, but also in its multiple display options. Perfect for that potted plant display. Want delicate goods out of reach from the kids? Simply pop them up top. Need to charge your smartphone close to the wall socket? Go low. Talk about being good-looking and reliable…
5. FERN LOVE
We’re calling it –garden lovers and horticulturalists everywhere will be going plant potty for this hand-sculpted Fern vase. Fill with your best blooms and double your floral impact in one green-glazed go. Nice!
6. CAN-DO ATTITUDE
At Swedish brand Garden Glory, you won’t find a single peep of hosepipe-green. Nope, its garden accessories are a bit bolder than that. Case in point, the divine Diamond watering can in Rusty Rose – one to show off outside even if the great British summer takes care of the watering.
