THE BIG NEW TREND

We’re see­ing a fash­ion for bo­hemian re­laxed style, with lots of vel­vet and hand­wo­ven fab­rics with se­quin de­tails. This blend of ar­ti­san and metal­lic links per­fectly with our East­ern her­itage.

PER­SONAL FAVOURITE

I adore our em­broi­dered vel­vet pom-pom trim cush­ions, which fuse tra­di­tional crewel work tech­niques with a fun trim on a plush vel­vet base. The mono­chrome pal­ette makes it a great ad­di­tion to any room.

TOP TIPS

Bring au­then­tic­ity and orig­i­nal­ity to your home by choos­ing pieces that have been hand­crafted by skilled ar­ti­sans.

De­spite it be­ing au­tumn, bring the out­side in by us­ing your lanterns as ter­rar­i­ums for plants.

Layer up soft fur­nish­ings in fab­u­lous tex­tures to cre­ate a cosy space for your­self. In­clude foot­stools, throws and cush­ions in a new pal­ette and you can trans­form the look of a room.

Mon­soon has mixed prints and tas­sels for a bo­hemian look. Mono­chrome geo­met­ric throw, £90; Di­a­mond knit throw, £60; Tuft Pea­cock cush­ion, £35
