Heart of House aw16 inspiration

Controversial, I know, but is it ok to admit that *whispers* I’m looking forward to Autumn already? I know, I know, but Autumn is my absolute fave season; I love the contrast to summer and fall walks in the park are the best. Another thing I look forward to is being able to snuggle again and adding extra layers at home (as well as getting back in my beloved tights and boots) – love it!

That being said, I am already getting excited about new Autumn/Winter furniture collections because there is always space to add a few new touches at the start of a new season. I’d like to show you my top picks from the Heart of House A/W16 range, which will hopefully give you a bit of inspiration and ideas for your own home in the next few months. There are four new collections based on current interior trends…

Scandi Retreat

I’d love a Scandi Retreat of my own so I was instantly drawn to this trend of furniture and home accessories, defined by its neutral colour scheme and simple design with lots of natural wood, ceramics and textiles (take a look at this gorgeous wool rug).

Floral Escape

I secretly long for an all white house with pretty feminine touches so the Floral Escape trend really appeals to me. Light, bright and airy interiors make me feel uplifted so I think this collection is my favourite of the four.


Perfect for Winter snuggling when the light is low and the weather cold, incorporate some Grandeur into your home with darker colours and settle in for the evening with a well stocked drinks trolley or a glam dinner party.

Forest Lodge

Oooo, wouldn’t a Forest Lodge getaway be lovely in the winter months? This trend is based on lots of wooden furniture and an earthy colour scheme.

So, let’s all enjoy the rest of summer but in between picnics and seaside trips I will be dreaming of Autumn interiors and the change of season.

    I can’t wait for autumn and winter! I keep telling my readers on my blog but they’re not impressed :p I find summer so tiring.

    Floral escape is my favourite too. Love that mirror you’ve picked out (and very reasonable too). I’m hoping for an Indian summer I’m afraid so warding off fall for a while x

    I’m 100% okay with you talking about Autumn already – I’m much more a hat and scarf kinda girl! Love your images above – particularly like the grey furniture against rose gold cutlery in the Grandeur moodboard x

    I know what you mean about autumn but I’m not quite ready to give summer up yet. Having said that, nothing wrong in looking at what’s going to be in the shops. My eye is definitely on Scandi Retreat. x

    My fav look is the scandi escape – I’d love to live with clean lines like that

    Autumn is my favorite too! I love that feeling of new beginnings which I get so much more at that time of year than an actual new year. I love that chaise in Forest Lodge- perfect for curling up with a book and a blanket xx

    I’m an autumn person too – love the colours and smell of that season! I’m liking Heart of House’s Scandi Retreat (that rug you linked to is gorgeous) and the Floral Escape (the lace bedding) – all very lovely!

    Ooh check out the Jielde inspired floor lamp as part of the Forest Lodge collection. Very nice!

    love the Scandi retreat look of course, and I want that ladder shelf, but the floral escape is also catching my eye for the lovely airiness of it, beautiful images x
