My first impressions of the Debenhams AW14 press day? Complete awe over the autumnal decor. Warm lighting with an orange hue, autumnal leaves, arrangements of wild flowers, flower pots and crates upcycled with gold and copper detailing... the visual merchandising of the event was genius.
The homeware department was really inspiring and got me even more excited about the prospect of owning my own place. I loved the neutral colour palettes - however the pink flamingo lamp was - and still is - is a brilliant statement piece.
I loved the Mad Hatter tea party feel of this dining table set
... and my dream kitchen would be filled with copper pans like these
The homeware department was full of inviting looking beds that I wanted to slip under the covers of
I loved this end of the bed feature with the candles and champagne flutes - perfect for a night in!
In terms of fashion, Debenhams presented my ideal wardrobe - capes, coats and beautiful boots.
... along with a whole host of party dresses ideal for party season in December
This coat. The warmest of shades. So autumn, don't you think?
The softest and cosiest sheepskin aviator jacket
Another must have for autumn - rust shorts
The camel coat - an autumn winter classic
And let's not forget these Mary Jane shoes. Very Alice in Wonderland.
... and then most of their lingerie. It was housed in the most atmospheric of settings with dim lighting, a white fluffy rug and a glass table (the latter two I seriously need in my life!) My favourites - as ever - are lacy affairs
Thank you so much to Debenhams for inviting me over that day to preview such an incredible collection. Is it so terrible that I'm willing summer to be over just so it's autumn...?!
