INDUSTRIAL AUTUMN LIVING
If Spring is the time for cleaning, I’m not sure what the Autumnal equivilent is, but a new season is always an excuse for a few new home purchases! This year I’m still in love with the industrial trend, but am glad to see it’s moved on for 2015 with rough timbers and rusty copper metallics. There’s something comforting about this moody palette of greys, neutrals and rust that I think are just perfect to see us through this time of year as we spend more time inside, eating roast dinners and wondering whether it’s still too early to put the fire on.
I’ve been eyeing up carnival lighting for quite a while, but I think this month I’ll bite the bullet and treat myself! I’m rather keen on this zinc arrow from Cox & Cox, it’s fun and quirky and would look pretty cool in the hallway or on the stairs! BUY NOW
Another item on my I-need-one-now list is the wooden ladder. This one, from Cox & Cox again, appeals as it’s got actual real shelves (as opposed to rungs) so it’s practical as well as stylish. There’s a perfect spot in my lounge. BUY NOW
It’s pretty common knowledge that I am the least green-fingered person on the planet. In fact, the only plant I’ve managed to keep alive is a plastic one that’s been on my windowsill for over 7 years now… But as I get older, and perhaps a little more interested in the whole keeping-things-alive thing, I’d rather light a terrarium to add a little life to a corner of my home. This glass prism terrarium from Cox & Cox is rather lovely in it’s geometric industrial way. BUY NOW
Having wooden floors throughout most of my home, keeping my toes warm is a priority and I’m always on the lookout for rugs. Graham & Green have got it just right with this New Zealand wool rug with a simple star motif. Super soft and cosy. BUY NOW
These hanging metal frames have been around for a while now, but they’ve been updated for A/W in this gorgeous copper metal. I spotted them first at the Oliver Bonas press day, and I shall certainly be picking up a few soon! BUY NOW
With Christmas (yup, there it is, it’s September and there’s the ‘C’ word already) coming up, extra seating is always a plus. Keep it simple and stylish with this metal chair from Rose & Grey. BUY NOW
