Marks & Spencer S/S 2012 Home Collection

1 | 2 | 3 | 4 | 5 | 6 | 7 | 8
I've written here before about the vast improvement in high street retailers' homeware collections over the past two years or so. Marks and Spencer is another brand that continues to take their homeware offering from strength to strength. They've successfully teamed up with some notable Design Legends, namely Sir Terence Conran, which sees the introduction of bedroom and kitchen collections to the existing living and dining ranges. A good number of my top picks come from the Conran range, which has a classic, stylish simplicity to it, with more than an air of high quality - the clothes valet is made of solid walnut, for example. As well as the sophisticated Conran collection, there are three core themes, Spectrum, Chalk and Geisha, across their latest collection. Spectrum is packed full of bright, luminous pastels and bold graphics, such as the geometric rug seen above. Chalk has a more natural and pared-back feel with the fabrics and textures reflecting organic and natural fibres. The third theme, Geisha, demonstrates lavish and vibrant colours such as deep fushia and magenta, inspired by oriental opulence. Which products are catching your eye? How would you incorporate these into your space this spring?

  3. I love the fact that all brands improved their home collections. And they also offer products that are really affordable! I've visited H&M yesterday and brought home some lovely pillowcases.

  5. I like the first photo, with white, light blue/turqouise and wood. And I had to take a peek at the Conrad range in the webshop, and found a rug that would fit very well in my living room this spring/summer: the Kilim Patchwork Rug in aqua, grey and neutral tones.

  12. Very much like that white diamond shape graphic vase (even if the flowers they have styled with it are too small!) Might have to invest! Like the graphic bedding too... and those cushions! Some good finds here - however I'm yet to have found an M&S that stocks even near the whole collection! So frustrating!!

  14. @fox and fawn, Sarah Roads, febe, Designwali, Martine, Hannah, Anette, Marina - I know, right? So impressed with this collection.

    @Maria - I'm with you 100% on that point; their price points are very accessible. Then again, they should be as they have the buying power to deliver better value for consumers.

    @Jamie - Yes, the Chalk range does feel very fresh.

    @Jessie - The sculptural vase is a statement piece - I think I'd line three up in a row.

    @Jeanne - Let me know if you want me to send you anything over!

    @Nina, Abbey - The shoot location is divine! Exposed bricks and bucket loads of natural light - what's not to love?! ;) x

    @Rachie - I visited one of their standalone Home stores over the festive period for the first time and I was really impressed. Totally changed my opinion of their offering. Not sure if there is one near you?

  15. I could always blow my budget at M&S for their home goods and in their food courts. Good for me there is no store close by:-)

  16. Grey tones and light wood... It's dreamy!!

  17. What an amazing collection! I love the contrast of the beautiful wooden furniture against the concrete walls and flooring. But what I would love to incorporate is that beautiful geometric rug! Be still my beating heart! ;)

  20. Phenomenal home collection, I am loving their pieces, subtle but strong in their own way. That bedroom is definitely my favorite picture! I just happened upon your blog today and I think is is great...I love your selection of interiors and different home decorating tips, so happy I found the site. I hope you're having a wonderful week.

  21. Oh, I love this new direction. I'm particularly liking the houses pattern - very nice! I think I'm going to have to get my in-laws to send an M&S package to Australia!

    ReplyDelete
  22. Wow! M&S really are sitting up and taking notice that we don't want the same old, smae old anymore! Love these new collections, especially the lampshade in the third photo and also the city scape fabric, reminds me of Paris!

  24. Proving that once again, everything in the UK is cooler than the US, ha! :-) I need to move there! Seriously though, my husband and I are drooling over that clothes valet. It's almost too beautiful to hide with clothes! Thanks Will for a great post!

  25. This is just my cup of tea! But then the location really made the collection, didn't it?

    ReplyDelete
