Create a warming and opulent home for autumn

Promotional feature with Tesco

Give your home a sophisticated makeover for the new season with a little help from the opulent home accessories at Fox & Ivy, Tesco’s new premium homeware brand.


There’s no escaping the darker evenings as we prepare to set the clocks back, waving goodbye to the bright days of summer and welcoming autumn. Brooding seasonal changes are the ideal time for a change in interiors too. Ready to embrace the darkness let’s take a step outside the comfort zone of the stripped-back, purist colour palette of Scandi-inspired trends and venture to the dark side with rich jewel toned velvets, deep ebony woods, luxe metallics and sumptuous faux furs to add a warming quality to our homes.

These key pieces from the new Fox & Ivy brand are an affordable and easy way to create an opulent feel for your décor, without breaking the bank.


Sumptuous faux fur accessories are just the thing to hunker down for cosy nights in. The exquisite mink faux fur on this throw adds an instant air of elegance to a living room, simply draped over a sofa it will ooze opulence. The irresistibly tactile soft pile is backed with a velvety reverse to ensure it’s equally as snuggly on both sides.
