I joined George Home at its press day in London last week which showcased all the lovely new launches coming up this autumn and winter.
Turns out there are five new trends – Savoy, Soulful Shelter, The Manor, Modern Organic and Cottage.
Here’s an overview of what each one offers, as well as my favourite pieces from each collection.
This sophisticated trend gives a firm nod to the luxurious 1930s era and features glossy metals and dark wood – everything that screams glamour basically.
It features art deco influences and beautiful sihouettes while still offering a feminine touch.
Objects made from marble, etched glass and foil prints also offer some great statement pieces.
My favourite item was the cube side table for £65, but in the picture above you can also see some gorgeous bronze effect pendant lamps which I had my eye on for £20.
The Soulful Shelter George Home collection offers a more chilled out, urban vibe, with touches of global influences. It’s an eclectic look with handmade finishes and imperfections to add to the overall appeal.
Colours include earthy greens, browns and aubergine.
My favourite piece was this copper leaf place (£12) and I also spotted ethnic looking carved wooden drawers for £12.
As the name suggest, think of a manor house and you can imagine the type of influences this trend has had – plenty of grandeur and a lived-in home style.
It features rich floral blooms, regal damasks (which I personally love) and bird prints. And who doesn’t love a bird print?!
Warm colours contrast with popular teal and duck egg to bring it back on trend. I love the quirky animal characters too!
My favourite item from this range was this Dressed rabbit ornament for £12. How cute?
When I first clocked eyes on this trend the first word that came to mind was ‘playful’. Featuring funky patterns – and funky colours to match – the collection is inspired by Scandinavian simplicity – evident by its clean lines.
Materials include marble, ceramics and copper, and the graphic prints really stand out.
I really liked this copper effect jar lamp for £30.
This is a look from George Home that I typically favour in my home, with nice, soft pastel colours. The look is feminine and romantic and features classic vintage prints.
Literary references play their part – including those from Alice Through The Looking Glass and the Secret Garden. I for one love it, and I know it would be a big hit with my daughter too.
My favourite item from this collection was the duvet itself – prices for double duvets are from £12.
As I was walking round the press show I kept asking myself which one was my favourite trend, but I honestly couldn’t make my mind up – I liked different items from each of the collections. It's probably why my own home is quite eclectic!
