Seasons. I absolutely love them. Alongside the falling leaves and refreshing temperatures (hello, layering!) it’s also the opportunity to refresh my home that fills me with joy. Of course, it’s the very change in season itself that offers up so much inspiration for a decor switch up, too. While the days here in London are still quite mild, the mornings and evenings are distinctly chilly and much darker then just a week or so ago. As soon as the sun goes down I’m hankering to head indoors and cosy up with my heartmate and my book. Of course, the moment I curl up on the couch I start to think about my interior and how I can change things up to make it work for the cold autumn days.It’s no secret that I’m mad about blue hues. At first thought blue appears to be a more natural fit for the spring/summer season, yet if you turn your attention to the darker end of the blue colour family it becomes the ideal autumnal decorating hue. Sainsbury’s have embraced one of my favourite dark blues, Indigo, for their lead A/W14 collection – and thank goodness they did because it’s a stunning collection. The reason this collection caught my eye from the off was because the product assortment offered a wealth of quick and easy opportunities to switch up my home for the new season. After all, who wants to (or can afford to!) change their furniture every season? I like to keep the bones of my interior fairly constant and then switch up the look with accessories, textiles and art as the season or my mood changes.What’s catching your eye from this Indigo collection? For me it’s all about the ombre fade vase and glassware for the table; the cable knit cushion for a dash of tactile texture on my sofa; and the copper candlesticks to play host to flickering candlelight as the nights get ever darker. So dive in and pick out your favourite Indigo pieces from my edit below. I’d love to know how you would bring this look into your home?
