    Sneak Peek: House of Fraser to launch brand new Home and Fashion collection for Autumn 2015

    by  • Thursday, July 23, 2015 • Favourite shops • 0 Comments

    It may not be launching online and in store until the end of August but we’re so excited about the new Gray & Willow collection from House of Fraser, that we couldn’t keep it to ourselves!

    G&W_01

    3 seater sofa £1,899, side table £259, cushions from £45, basket knit throw £100 and grey etched textured vase £35 all from Gray & Willow.

    Designed and curated in-house at House of Fraser, the gorgeous new collection explores a ‘Scandi inspired approach to interiors that demonstrates relaxed versatility within a sanctuary of modern style’

    Featuring a palette of soft greys, putties, oatmeals and dusty lilacs, it captures a mood of a relaxed and rustic lifestyle.

    G&W_02

    Wooden bench £499, marble vase £30, large marble frame £30, slate frame £20, cream etched vase £25, grey etched vase £35, candle holder £18 and basket knit throw, £100 all Gray & Willow.

    Heralding traditional making methods and natural material and taking a relaxed approach to cooking, dining and entertaining, the kitchen collection combines acacia wood boards, utensils and lidded glass jars with light and dark marble serveware, and organically shaped, glazed dinnerware.

    We love the simple, understated feel of the striped linens and brushed steel cutlery, both of which would work well with existing crockery and glassware.

    G&W_03

    Acacia round board £45, dark marble placemat £30, acacia utensils £12 each, rectangular roasting dishes from £30, round roasters from £32, striped napkins, £16 for 4, all Gray & Willow.

    G&W_05

    G&W_04

    Elska dinnerware from £6 and striped napkins £16 for 4 both Gray & Willow.

    Moving through to the bedroom, the collection continues the relaxed, laid-back living feel, which through extensive customer research was identified by the buying team, as a key essential thus achieving daily calm and more time for rest and relaxation. Something we can all relate to!

    G&W_06

    Double bedstead £999, Tromso flannel stripe double duvet cover £80, Stonewashed bedspread £150 all Gray & Willow.

    With such pretty bedding of timeless washed slub cotton yarns and linen fibres with brushed flannel for an organic quality it creates a lovingly laid-back feel that just makes us want to curl up among it with a cup of tea and a good book!

    G&W_07

    Pillowcases from £25 for a pair, Gray & Willow.

    If like us you love this look for your home, then you’ll be pleased to hear the Gray & Willow collection extends to fashion too so look out for this launching at the end of August too. We’ve already got our eye on several lovely pieces!

    Hot trend: Safari

    by  • Thursday, February 17, 2011 • Latest trends • 4 Comments

    Don your khaki trousers, grab a pair of binoculars and imagine you’re in a LandRover, not an office – today, we’re hitting the dusty savannahs to check out this season’s safari designs…

    Think lions, zebras, elephants and giraffes…I love this cute wall decal from Decosticker. Working clockwise: a zebra chair from BHS (very Peter Stringfellow/Kat Slater), bargain faux-fur animal-print accessories (throw, cushion and picture frame) from Tesco Direct, and a tasty safari map cushion from our dear Africa-obsessed friends at Anthropologie

    Any excuse for a spot of Turner Pocock wallpaper (top left) – this Zebra design is one of my favourites. Everything else here is from Anthropologie – I can’t help thinking the design team must have had an epic field trip to Africa – it’s difficult to find something that’s NOT safari-related there this season!

    Let’s end with Sue Timney‘s stunning ‘Menagerie’ cushion – part of her new home collection for House of Fraser, hitting stores early April. It’s covered with brightly-coloured exotic animals and insects – a bit like Victorian engravings with a modern twist. I love this style – and once read a novel just because the cover had Victorian animal engravings on it. That’s how shallow I am. Keep your eyes peeled for the rest of Sue Timney’s range – there are monochrome cake plates, glamorous striped lamps and quirky Fornasetti-style ceramics. Not very safari, granted, but let’s sneak it in here anyway:

    Now, THAT’S a cake plate. If you can’t get enough of Sue’s quirky style, and fancy dressing up as a barcode, don’t miss her current exhibition: “Sue Timney and the Design of Timney-Fowler“, at the Fashion and Textile Museum until 25 April. – Ellie
