Autumn Brights

With the days drawing in I'm loving these vibrant floral wallcoverings and fabrics from the Designers Guild new Amrapali Autumn collection to add an eye popping splash of colour into our homes this Autumn.  My favourite is the jewel coloured Amrapali wallpaper in the exotic clashing brights swhich just looks stunning.  Team with bright white for the colour to zing out in your room- and forget the feature wall go all out for flowers all over for the new look statement style.

Teeny weeny pots of style

I've always been a fan of the borrowers and all things on a miniature scale (note the obsession with dolls house furniture in the past!) so whilst doing my research for a Country Homes shoot I came across these beautiful ceramic mini pots from designer maker Jill Shaddock - they are in such lovely colours - dark and moody tones in shades of brown  with unexpected accents of colour in emerald green and citrus yellow thrown in for good measure- a perfect treat   - the problem is you need a whole collection to appreciate the beautiful colour combinations.
