Here in Angel + Blume, Autumn is one of the most exciting times of the year as it brings with it the launch of the new fabric, wallpaper, carpet, lighting and accessory collections.

This autumn we are seeing a return of the wonderfully warm Chinese yellow so popular in the 1980s alongside bold overblown florals and small scale geometrics.


This picture shows Sanderson’s gorgeous Chinese Peony wallpaper from their new Richmond collection.  This teamed with curtains in a rich velvet such as Harlequin’s Folia in Cocoa

together with cushions in Sancerre Lime and Lisanne from Harlequin’s Impasto Collection and in Nobilis gorgeous Hector fabric, and you would have a beautiful, up to date, not overly designed room scheme.

Whilst yellow used with red and pink can look pretty and country, yellow teamed with Charcoal and Silver looks particularly smart and  a bit more sophisticated.  Again, this is illustrated particularly well in these lovely Harlequin Giverny curtains, which look as if they have been painted, and the really unusual coordinating People wallpaper.

There would appear to have been a resurgence in period glamour with restrained Art Deco influences.  And there is an abundance of metallic accessories from mirrors to lamp bases, to vases and even furniture.
