Fashion changes with the seasons so why can't your interior style?

As spring finally arrives I'm switching up my wardrobe, adding little changes here and there and packing away my scarves and thickest of jumpers. Fashion and Interiors work in the same way and as we enter into this new season of the year, we are already being prepared for AW19. London Fashion Week showcased some top trends that would also transfer beautifully into the home.

I'm not saying you need a total refurb but little touches can change the whole feeling of a room. It can be as little as a fresh roll of wallpaper or a couple of statement cushions that can breathe a new life and new look into your space.

I've picked some of my favourite trends to give you some ideas on how to make your front room not look out of place on the pages of Vogue.

Spotted on the catwalk of LFW Asai show, Neutrals were definitely the stand out trend. You can get this look for your home by choosing modern, multifunctional and modular pieces. The Bertie Sofa from Arlo and Jacob, upholstered in this sumptuous burnt umber velvet, is perfect for this and is the definition of versatility.

Autumn and winter don't need focus on dark shades, in fact, I'd argue they are more in need of a pop of colour! Marigold yellow was a not-to-be-missed trend this season. You guys know how much I love yellow! This was a key look in the JW Anderson show. You can add a burst of sunshine as a statement feature; a statement wall or a painted fireplace can totally transform a room and add that pop of cheer during the colder months.

Floral prints are no longer dowdy or reserved for your granny's sofa! Erdem produced some amazing floral pieces in their collection this season; some of which can be transferred to your interiors seamlessly. Arlo and Jacob show how beautifully this can work with their Hastings footstool, covered in a botanical bold print. Such a beautiful pop of colour and design that you can easily introduce in your home.

Lastly, the iconic Victoria Beckham didn't disappoint with her collection this season. Strong Silhouettes were made softer with playful necklines. You can try this look in your home with simple but beautiful shelving that incorporates those angular designs with a few curves to soften the look.

I'd love to know which trend you liked the most and if you'd be looking to incorporate these in your home.

A mothers day treat with Cross Country Trains - AD


I remember my first Mothers Day when Wilf was just three months old being such an important milestone for me. Not only were we out of the newborn bubble, the 'fourth trimester' (and finally finding our feet with this parenting thing) it felt like a bit of a landmark occasion. I was so thrilled to finally have become a mum and this felt like such a wonderful anniversary of that.

Mother's Day feels like a gentle celebration of all that mums do and nothing makes me happier than a homemade card and a cup of tea in bed on that morning. So when Cross Country trains got in touch to ask if I'd like a pre Mothers Day day out on them I obviously said yes and was even happier that they asked me to bring along a mum pal to treat too.

Since moving to a new area and new school for the kids one mum has really gone out of her way to make me feel welcome so I knew right away that I wanted to show how much I appreciate it. There's nothing nicer than finding a mum friend you get on so well with and your kids get along so well with too!

After the school run bright and early we hopped on the train and into the first class carriage no less and were whisked away to Exeter. The coffee on board was so very welcome after our early mornings (somehow both our kids got up pre-five) and before we knew it was time to get off. In fact we actually almost forgot to get off the train we had got so comfortable and were nattering away!


Our first stop was a short stroll away at Sacred Grounds, we grabbed another coffee because what is motherhood without multiple coffees and then tucked into the most delicious vegan brunch. I had the sweet waffles whilst Alex went for a savory Smorgasbord.

After we were both suitable full we popped next door for some retail therapy. If you were to ask me to describe my perfect day it would definitely involve vintage shopping so I'm so glad we popped into this place, I definitely could have gone away with a few more pairs of Converse too!


A kaftan and bomber jacket down we headed across the round to the cutest print and plant shop. I could have spent so much here but we decided to choose each other a succulent as a little Mother's Day gift to each other. I love that it will last so much longer than flowers and will be such a lasting reminder of our day.


Our next and last stop was The Terrance. Our pre Mothers Day together always had to involve a cocktail or two. Another benefit of getting the train! It was such a glorious spring day so we sat outside and just soaked up the rays and the fact we weren't doing the school run ;)


Before we knew it we were back at the station and onto our Cross Country train again. The perfect stressfree ending to our day together and such a great reminder to make a day trip with friends be more of a regular thing!

This post was in collaboration with Cross Country trains. Taking a day trip with my friend for a pre ‘Mother’s Day’ was such a lovely treat, you can get an advanced ticket here which makes it such good value
