    by  • Tuesday, October 4, 2016 • 2 Comments

    The dinner table is one of the places that bears the brunt of the changing seasons, as delicate salads are swapped for hearty stews, fresh loaves and sizzling roasts. To cope with the larger load, I love switching up my tableware to match – bid farewell to the soft pastels of summer, this is all about earthy prints, moody colours natural textures. Here are 7 of my favourite ranges available now:autumn-dining-tableware-home-shopping-spy-murmur

    The details: Speckle range, from £4.20 for a bowl, Murmur range, Bedeck

    The style: I love the juxtaposition of the earthy, artisan-style ceramics with the super-smart geometric print. The soothing palette or white, navy and teal makes the range feel relaxed yet sophisticated at the same time.

    Okay, so I don’t technically need a new stool – but I definitely want one! This little industrial beauty (£98.50, Design Vintage) is literally perfect. It would look amazing in a study, hallway or even as a side table next to a bed or bath. Gorgeous.
