Snippets of September's latest need to knows
Buy the original boutique hotel-style
Soho House New York
Soho House & Co is the private members club first founded in Soho London 1995, now seventeen clubs and hotels worldwide, from Soho Farmhouse in Oxford to Soho Beach House in Miami, each with individual and highly instagrammable style. The style secrets are no longer ‘members only’, founder Nick Jones is sharing these diverse and enviable interior designs with the launch of Soho Home, starting with pieces inspired by five of the houses. Whilst the bath in bedroom may be a step to far for a style steal, you can recreate some of the signature styles at home from the perfect bed from mattress to sumptuous linen, classic lighting, artwork, crystal glassware and beautiful handmade tableware and luxurious upholstered furniture.

Honey, Ikea shrunk the kitchen!
Sunnersta mini kitchen, £99, Ikea.
We’re intrigued by this mini wonder kitchen, Sunnersta, it has pretty much everything and the kitchen sink; with worktop space, small Tillreda fridge and even a single induction hob that can be stowed away. Ikea sees it as a solution to small living spaces, a home office or even a stop gap saviour for those in kitchen renovation limbo. We reckon it’ll also slot right into an attic for the boomerang generation, a granny annexe, rented room or even an outdoor space, genius!
Hartwell collection, from £225, Ercol range, Next
Love the iconic mid-century style of Ercol? Highstreet heavy weight Next has joined forces with the heritage furniture brand to unveil15 exclusive new pieces for autumn. The collection includes the six-piece Chesham living and dining range, the Burcott Upholstery range, with and the Hartwell bedroom range. Each piece has been crafted in solid oak with Ercol’s distinctive retro touch, such as spindles, turned legs and buttonbacks to help you bring some mid-century style to your home.
Cath Kidston + Disney =
This Autumn sees the launch of a very special partnership between Cath Kidston and Disney, producing limited-edition, seasonal collections depicting some of the most iconic Disney characters, nestled among the signature prints of Cath Kidston. Thankfully we’re talking classic, old school Disney, rather than any of their more recent characters, as Cath Kidston were granted unprecedented access to Disney’s entire archives of original illustrations, allowing their designers to choose the perfect poses to weave seamlessly into two of their existing designs. Kicking off the collection, just in time to help celebrate his 90th Birthday, Winnie the Pooh finds himself, along with Piglet, playing amongst the delicate ditsy print of newly named ‘Bramley Sprig and Friends’, as well as chasing pesky balloons across
‘Balloon Spot’ along with Tiger and Eeyore.
Balloon Spot breakfast cup and saucer, £16
These sit along side a third design, A day in the Hundred Acre Wood, which together deliver a whimsical, loveable and more importantly stylish collection across home, kids, accessories and fashion. And it doesn’t stop with Pooh bear, as Mickey and Minnie have been lined up to feature in the second collection, launching just in time for Christmas. Sold in selected Cath Kidston stores and online from 26th September while stocks last.
