On Wednesday this week, I left the cosy office at Ideal Home HQ and battled the winter winds over Waterloo Bridge – there aren’t many invitations that can lure me outside in January, but afternoon tea at The Savoy is definitely one of them! What’s more (as if home-made scones weren’t tempting enough), it was a chance to discover Lorraine Kelly’s spring/summer 16 homeware range for JD Williams.
The collection is split into two stylish trends: Coastal Mist, with a cool blue and crisp white palette, and Coast to Glen, with pieces that are reminiscent of Lorraine’s Scottish heritage. Comprising 29 items in total, the range includes bedlinen, lighting, soft furnishings and home accessories, all in an easy-to-use palette of grey, blue and white, interspersed with pops of heather or mustard tones.
Lorraine pottered round from table to table to spend some time with each of us, talking excitedly about her new homeware range and what it means to her. She says, “This collection is an invitation into my home and interior style… I’m thrilled to share with you a range that is inspired by my own heritage and personal taste.”
The Coast to Glen range (top) is inspired by natural tones from the Scottish glen, with antique-inspired bronze lanterns. There’s also an adorable Scottie dog motif for a cheerful touch! The Coastal Mist range has a more modern, shoreline feel, with wooden textures, glass lamps and rustic rope details.
