Most of the John Lewis Home collection for spring/summer 2024 has now landed on the site and in stores, except for a few pieces. To mark the beginning of a new season and a new aesthetic, John Lewis held a preview event and I got a first look at some of the best new-in pieces.

The new range champions some of the biggest home decor trends predicted for 2024, including the scalloped home furnishing trend which we’ve been seeing everywhere lately and which is bound to stick around for the rest of the year.

The collection is also a celebration of the retailer’s colour of the season, named sky blue – a perfect soft, calming blue shade. When looking at the forecasted colour palette of 2024, we’re not surprised – as blue is all the rage. So naturally, most of my top picks from the offering (which I’m certain will be selling like hotcakes) come in this pretty blue hue, because we're predicting everyone and their dog will soon be obsessed with it.

As reported by John Lewis, searches for ‘sky blue’ on the retailer’s site have grown by +137% compared to this time last year.

‘Blue is a brilliant interior colour. It comes in a wide range of shades and works well layered into existing schemes to give a fresh, new feel,’ says Melanie Archer, colour expert at John Lewis. ‘We have introduced a family of blues this season. Our key tone is a powder, hazy sky blue.’

The brand’s focus on all things sleep this season (and by extension the bedroom and bed) makes the powder blue the perfect choice for interiors as it is mentally soothing and restorative.

The range also concentrates heavily on all things lighting as this season. John Lewis launches the largest spring lighting collection to date, including one of the best wireless lamps we’ve seen – a lighting trend which is already enjoying much popularity. The new additions have now tripled the John Lewis lighting product range.

When going from one room to the next and exploring the new collection along the way, it made me look forward to the season ahead, filled with a mixture of light, soft shades and bold, primary colours, scalloped trims and the bobbin home aesthetic trend among other things. 

I’m so ready for spring now!
