Cool Grey: French Connection Home

Ah, I do love it when a brand gets their neutrals on point - French Connection's latest homeware collection is a case in point. Offering an array of cool grey textiles, milky white ceramics and textured wooden pieces, the line is just how I like my neutrals to be. Admittedly, I wouldn't furnish a whole space with their pieces (Mr. Bazaar always needs a few brighter hues added to the mix) but I definitely would choose to add elements of this collection to my existing schemes. So, I'd happily snap up the beautiful grey bedlinen (above) but I'd give it a Bright.Bazaar update with a striped yellow throw or a neon pink throw pillow. Something that's a little left of centre would bring the look right in line with my overall interiors aesthetic. You might recognise the beautiful glass vases (above) from my Design market page in the summer issue of Sweet Paul? I felt it was perfectly showed how to cool down with grey hues this summer. What pieces are standing out to you? I'm falling harder for those washed mango table lamps with every passing minute...!

  2. I'm a bit disappointed they went all in for safe grey and white. Lots of hope for their next collection though! Their clothes always surprise with new interesting patterns and colours every season so they'd better not keep the home collection too timid and boring.

    Anyhow, couldn't keep myself from buying some nice candle holders and I really like the lamps and furniture.
