Last week I had the pleasure of attending Sainsbury’s Home Spring Summer 2018 Press breakfast.
I was interested to see what the trends for next year would be. It was also fun to pick out my favourite pieces from the show, to style at home. Andrew Tanner ( Design manager at Sainsbury’s) and Rona Olds ( Head of buying for Sainsbury’s) talked us through the 7 different collections.
See if you can guess which collections I selected my products from, to style my room.
Helsinki – A Scandinavian style collection with a moody palette of Ochre and shades of Charcoal, from textiles to tableware. The Melamine from the Helsinki collection look and feel like real ceramic.
Riviera Coast – Inspired by the coastline, a nautical theme, with elements of gold, indigo blue and knots in patterns.
Meadow Inspired by the British countryside, a soft and beautiful palette.
Summer Palm House – Inspired by the opulence of Kew Gardens and the Cocktail Lounge bar at Singapore’s Raffles hotel drenched in big Palm trees. A beautiful botanical collection, combining shades of blush pinks with greens.
Casa de Cuba – A vibrant collection with tile print patterns, that can be mixed and matched.
Fiesta – It’s all about family time and spending it together in the garden during Summer. Colours are bright with lots of geometric prints.
Unsurprisingly, I went for the colourful Casa de Cuba and Summer Palm House collections. Let me now show you around. Feast your eyes on this beautiful real marble top Copper table from the Summer Palm House collection. I’m pretty sure this will fly out of the store when it lands, because, can you believe that it’s only £45?
How amazing is that cactus plant (£24) on the marble table? You won’t believe me when I tell you it’s faux. When I saw it at the press show, I thought it was a real one, being used as a prop. I used the beautiful woven striped cotton throw from Sainsbury’s Casa de Cuba collection to add a vibrant pop of colour to the sofa. Here is a close up view of the throw and matching cushions from the same collection. Isn’t that Sardine cushion adorable, with its colourful tassels? We’ve seen large planters on stands over the past year, with the indoor plants trend, but I’ve not seen a mini version like this before. It’s just so cool, with its bright pop of sunshine yellow. Here it is on the coffee table. It doesn’t matter if the patterns clash, the more, the merrier for a visual impact. I’ve never seen a pink Cockatoo before, isn’t it sweet? This would be my dream pet, to fit in with my pink loving home.
All the new range cushions are between £12 to £16 each. Did you notice that beautiful blue, red and pink Havana pouffe with a tile pattern? That is my absolute favourite piece from Sainsbury’s Home Spring Summer 2018 collection. It’s so light and comfortable to sit on too. This giraffe planter (£20) is from Sainsbury’s Home’s Bohemian wanderer collection. It will definitely feature in my daughter’s eclectic Boho theme room revamp next year. It was such an amazing feeling to bring Summer back into my home on a cold Winter’s day. I appreciate that most people are making their homes Winter cosy now, but doesn’t this just add an instant cheer and a dose of warmth? Hope you have enjoyed my picks of Sainsbury’s Home Spring Summer 2018 collection. All the other collections are amazing too. There is something to suit every taste.
Will you be queueing at Sainsbury’s to get your hands on the best pieces when the collection comes out? I know I will. Do keep an eye on Sainsbury’s Home’s instagram account to find out more.
Hope you have enjoyed the post. Do take a peek at my last post about the WGSN interiors trend talk by Lisa White at Sainbury’s Home’s press show too. It’s so interesting to learn about the new lifestyle trends on the horizon.
Have a wonderful new week.
