#HOFPRESSDAY AW15 - HOME

1.6.15

I was recently invited to House of Fraser's Autumn Winter 2015 Press Day Preview.
I love going to Press Days as a Blogger, being able to view what's to come next season is FAB.
What I particularly liked about this Press Day is that #HOFPressDay wasn't only Fashion related but had a huge Home Press Preview too!

I work Full Time in Buying & Sales for a Furniture & Interiors Company.
So I was in my complete element browsing the #HOFPressDay Home area.

So I thought I'd share with you some of the exciting things coming this AW15 to House of Fraser's Home Department.


The Press Preview was arranged in sections from Bedroom, Living Room, Dining and Kitchen.
It was also arranged in different styles and themes of styles of the season to come this AW.

One of the trends which seemed to be huge was Moroccan themes in bronze, silver and red colour tones and metals, Maroq Lanterns and colourful styles.

Picture Frames £20.00
Mirror Base Trinket Boxes £40.00
Stem Hurricane Jars £30.00

Something else that was key from the Press Day Homeware styling is simple, not over accessorising.
With desk accessories such as mugs and glasses to hold your stationary in a simple chic homeware style.


Not only does Moroccan look like it's making a huge comeback this season, but it looks like it's another year for Country themes.
But less of last years famous Stag Print and more of the Horse, Dog, Foxes etc and other country animals. Mixed with country and rustic accessories with rustic woods, tartans and checks, wool and cable knit and everything else countryside.

Rope Bell Jar £25.00


Repeated in the Bedroom arrangements, the Country theme continued with knitted throws, country themed cushions and vintage style florals as bedding making the perfect modern/traditional mix of fabrics and homewares.

Wallace The Dog Cushion £25.00
House Print Cushion £25.00
Woven Knit Throw £75.00

Not only is it a huge trend this summer in Fashion, but 60s/70s Furniture and Styling is making possibly my favourite ever Interiors Retro Comeback, as well as 60s/70s Homeware & Interiors is going to be a massive trend this Autumn Winter. 
With pattern clashing fabrics making the perfect scatter cushions and pillow themes to decorate your home with, in all and every colour especially reds, blues, yellows, blue pinks and green.
Light wood furniture, all things square and spherical with one of my favourite furniture trends ever the Statement Retro Leg that are so famous from that era making a comeback, allowing the perfect combination of new and old.
I'm such a fan of this trend!

Chevron Cushion £25.00



As I previously mentioned Vintage is still a very supportive fan of the Vintage trend in fashion and homeware.
I love the traditional styles all the textures and muted colours with so much floral here, there and everywhere with the famous vintage duck egg and beige shades makes the perfect country cottage home feel.


Something else that was clear from the #HOFPressDay was statement accessories.
My personal favourite being this Pineapple Lamp and shade the perfect talking piece for any room.

Zeus Pineapple Lamp £80.00

Copper has been massive in interiors and design this summer, and I love it so much!
It looks like it's sticking around and I'm so, so pleased it is.
If you're a copper fan like me, you're going to love what House of Fraser have to offer this AW15 with All Things Copper from Copper Lanterns, Copper Lighting, Copper Crockery and - my personal favourite - Copper Cutlery!

Yes,
Copper. Cutlery.
I know, I know... I am in awe.

Copper Cutlery 24 Piece Set £180.00
Hurricane Lantern £30.00
Microdot Dinnerware from £12.00
Kensington Champagne Flutes (Set of 2) £35.00
Shabby Chic is still huge.
Some of you will be pleased and others not...
However, it's another trend I adore. Especially for a Bedroom.
I love how versatile the Shabby Chic styling is, the rustically subtle accessories and ability to inject vintage or modern but keeping the colour palettes neutral. My favourite part, the french themes of stunning design, delicate ornate accessorising and what always seems to be the perfect balance of colours and textures.
The reason I love Shabby Chic French Styling so much is you can do it on a budget with it being a large trend for the past few years with the help of more budget brands making the style more accessable.
However, if you love antiques and the old like me, the traditional french styling allows you to find those vintage treasures from years ago and build up your collection on any budget visiting antiques and vintage fairs where the Shabby Chic style allows you to add these pieces to your home with them blending in perfectly instead of them standing out like a sore thumb, being proud of all things antique and pre-loved.

Glass Jug Vase £25.00
Crown Frame £25.00

I'm a Candle Addict, and I'm not shy of it.
Which means I'm so pleased with House of Fraser's Linea AW15 New Selection of Candles in amazing scents and style from large jars to tin potted candles and diffusers.


I'm a keen cook and baker and love being in the kitchen.
So as I was surprised to see a kitchen section at the #HOFPressDay I was so pleased!
Even happier when I spotted to bronze, copper coloured KitchenAid!

Acacia Platter Boards £25.00Acacia Storage Jars £16.00


So, that's all I have for you from the #HOFPressDay: Home Department and I hope it was a great insight for you into whats to come next season whether you're moving home, revamping the house or just a Homeware Obsessive like me.
