Homes and lifestyle journalist Jules Barton-Breck reports back from this season’s press shows, offering a sneak preview of the latest homeware design collections.

Liveable colours at Earthborn Paints

For Autumn/Winter, the latest favourite colours from this sustainable paint company reflect the international colour trends for home interiors for the next six months. With fun names like Fuggles and Fat Rascal, these colours are deep and punchy, and will work wonderfully alongside darker woods and natural fabrics such as linen and hemp.

Domino and Abbey wall tiles, Fired Earth

Statement style at Debenhams

Debenhams’ press shows are always popular – its Designers at Debenhams range has something interesting to offer everyone, from furniture to must-have accessories. I’m a big fan of Abigail Ahern’s work; a couple of her animal table lamps have found a place in my home, and her collaboration with the store gets better with each season. The flocked Ram’s Head bust is both mine and head of design for homeware Sophia Ridley’s hot pick, ‘adding playful grandeur to a sideboard’. Another one of her favourites is Debenhams’ own Bloomsbury range, and I’m sure it’ll be a bestseller for them, featuring beautiful beds, bedlinen and throws in sumptuous colours and fabrics.
