Starting with kitchen news, are you looking to improve the multi-functionality factor of your design? Check out the new kitchen island on wheels by British Standard. The best bit? It’s customisable and a doddle to move when not in use.

Fancy a sneak peek at the latest AW23 interiors? I’ve got you covered. Caesarstone‘s Metallio Brown porcelain surface caught my eye. With its delicious rusty tones, it’s ideal for achieving a moody, industrial look.

Next on my radar is DFS‘ collaboration with Dulux and The Sleep Care Company. Together, they’ve created the perfect recipe for a restful night’s sleep – from the colour palette to the bedroom furniture.

Changing seasons

Walk into autumn with the help of Caesarstone’s new 303 Metallio Brown porcelain surface. The new colourway features organic swirls of russet brown and tarnished reds, giving it a moody look.

“From autumnal rusty oranges and earthy reds to beiges and browns, these seasonal hues bring a touch of the outside in, to connect us with nature and rejuvenate our homes,” says Mor Krisher, head of product design at Caesarstone.

Pair the neutral worktop with matt black finishes for a stylish industrial-style scheme.

Early bird or night owl?

DFS, Dulux, and wellness brand The Sleep Care Company have joined forces to create the perfect recipe for a restful night’s sleep. The Colour of Sleep range includes bedroom furniture, paint and expert tips for all sleep patterns.

“In the morning we want to wake up with a spring in our step, and the three new velvet shades from DFS, together with Dulux’s shades of Almond White, Copper Blush and Coral Charm, offer a palette that encourages warmth, hope, and optimism, without being too overpowering,” says Marianne Shillingford, creative director at Dulux.

The Cambourne and Danube collections from DFS are available in two colour palettes – Morning offers earthy tones, such as dusky pink and rich coral, while the Night range features deep greens and soothing blues.
