Step into autumn with a bright new look for your home
We think of spring as the traditional time to decorate, but if you're fed up with your tired décor, why wait to make those all important changes? Take inspiration from John Lewis's distinguished design team to find a new look perfect for your home.
Celia Birtwell's distinctive new take on vintage designs adorn a whole range of John Lewis home accessories, including cushions, bed linen, ready-made curtains and a retro PVC fabric.
We may dream of that country cottage, the inglenook fireplace, bare bricks and big wooden tables, but you don't have to up sticks to get the look. Simply choose floral fabrics, basic wooden furniture and country design lampshades.
Bring a worn table to life with a bright Celia Birtwell cloth and make your sofas focal points with colourful print cushions.
With her quirky, creative designs, Donna Wilson has brought Mother Nature into our homes, and her owl, robin and flower design cushions are now available in John Lewis.
Just as the clothes fashion for eclectic boho styling, mixing and matching kitsch items and clashing colours and prints is now a popular approach for interior decorating. Striped curtains and a check tablecloth - why not?
A Donna Wilson folk flower cushion would work wonderfully with vintage-style patchwork bedding. And adding an owl cushion on an antique chair will act as an instant off-beat update. Be eclectic, be daring and be unique.
Rob Ryan brings his romantic designs to John Lewis with a collection of prints, ceramics and stationery, all screen printed with his trademark hearts, flowers and animal motifs.
There is always room, or even rooms, for romance in the home. And you don't need to go all out with satin sheets on your beds and rich red fabrics to bring the love into a room.
The flickering light of candles, that deep sofa and a soft rug can all help add a romantic vibe. As for the detail, add hand-picked pieces that will make you feel all warm inside. Create a feature wall with photos in eclectic frames, look for cute prints decorating anything from vases to mugs and snuggle up amongst a collection of cushions.
Many home renovators now replace walls with sliding glass doors - blurring the boundaries between inside and out. But American designer Amy Butler has achieved the same result without the fuss. Her love of gardening is evident in the lush botanical prints from her John Lewis bathroom range, with vivid tones of hot coral, fresh turquoise and zingy green brining nature in.
There are plenty of ways to bring a fresh feel to your home - and we're not just talking houseplants. The return of the signature wallpapered wall gives the opportunity to experiment with bold, large designs of ferns and leaves. Natural fibre sea grass rugs have been in favour for some time and botanical design cloths, throws, curtains and cushions all invite the outside in.
John Lewis offers the complete home choice, with everything from focal-piece furniture items to home accessories. And with new pieces available from distinguished designers, you can dress your home in style.
