    Now is the perfect time to introduce new décor to your home, adding a relaxing, cosy feel for autumn. If you‘re unsure where to start, find all the inspiration you‘ll need in Sainsbury’s stylish new Harvest collection. Inspired by the colours, patterns and textures of the British countryside in autumn, the range features original designs from Sainsbury‘s in-house design studio across textiles, tableware and home accessories. Mellow colours reflect the changing shades of the countryside – think of russet hedgerows, the rich tones of fallen leaves and the golden hues of fields ready for harvest. Use cool tones of sky grey and pale wheat as your starting point and layer warm tones of bold mustard yellow to tap into this season’s love-in for autumnal colours.

    Natural motifs lie at the heart of this versatile collection, from an original linocut woodland pattern to embroidered flowers on cushions. To complement these easy-to-use designs, there are plain knits, chunky weaves and pretty printed linens in a tonal palette of mustard and grey that makes it easy to create a co-ordinated décor.

    It’s the finishing touches that add character and bring a room to life, and Harvest has beautiful accents in abundance that team detail and texture perfectly. Hand-carved mango woodware, delicately embroidered fabric, playful animal decorations, sponge-printed ceramics and rustic woven baskets will add a personal touch to any room. With a nod to the Arts and Crafts style, the collection works equally well in either a traditional or contemporary setting. Finish by adding a layer of irresistible fragrance – Harvest’s scented candles have an inviting aroma of fresh greenery and berries with a spicy undertone.
