John Lewis new season goodies

I think I want to buy 90% of the John Lewis Autumn/Winter range. A bit alarming... But scroll down and perhaps you'll see why: there is a heavy focus on solid retro stylings and vibrant vintage hues to cheer one through the darkening evenings ahead. 

Here are some of my favourite bits:

Above: I love how cosy this combination of strong, autumnal colours is. I particularly love the orange lamp. Products are from the Retro Reborn range (Red Staten Desk from £245, Multicolour Chest £50, Metal Number £20, Zoe Desk Lamp £40).

Clockwise from top right: This lush schoolroom-like  Flore Chair, £89, comes in five colours and is made from Canadian maple plywood with tubular metal legs; love the simplicity of this Madison Glass Ceiling Light, £35 – and if you like that, you might also like these recycled jam jars; The classic bistro cafe chair, £99 comes in red, black, yellow, green and blue. Why not mix and match colours?; Isn't the colourful, late Sixties/Early Seventies font on this Tea For Two mug, £5, brilliant?; who needs lampshades? This Calex decorative golf ball bulb, £4, is beautiful enough on its own. this one is 25-watt and measures 8x6cm. There are alternative sizes and designs on the John Lewis website (though, annoyingly, no alternative fittings to screw-in); this mini multi-drawer desktop chest, £50 would brighten up any workspace – and is perfect for hiding away pens, paperclips, stray Post-its and more; this Folk Home cushion, £35, is so sweet. Oh for an old Scandinavian townhouse to put it in...

Left: check out lots of lovely Le Creuset colours; oven mitt, £12. Right: laundry bag, £12; ironing board cover, from £9; galvanised steel magazine holder, £12.


  1. Love the styling of that desk - a great example of how a desk can look cosy rather than officey. As someone who is trying to make their (home) desk look exactly that, I know how difficult it is!

  2. It's really good isn't it? Yes, I'm still working on making my home office make sense... A good lamp is definitely making a big difference. Though only while working late! Hmm...

  3. I thought just that when I popped in there last week. My eyes popped out of my head when I saw their display. It's all made it onto my wish list!

  4. Me too! There are so many gorgeous items in the new season collection.

    I love the mini industrial-style desktop minor set-back is the lack of anywhere on my desk at the moment to put it, but I'm working on it!
