Welcome to the latest edition of Home Time. This month, I’ve rounded up a stack of homewares finds from up-and-coming designers and some of your favourite big brands. I’ve got all budgets and all styles covered, so let’s jump straight into it!
I think that one of the most exciting things to happen to Australian homewares, is the recent launch of CO:Home by Cotton On. Offering beautifully designed living, gift and summer essentials, this range nails great quality (no synthetic fabrics, hallelujah!) at an even better price. Think, cushions, throws, vases, Turkish towels, tableware and a stack more. Defined by relaxed, pared-back design, this collection is super easy to style and the perfect way to give your nest a quick refresh.

As always, there’s a lot to love about I Love Linen’s latest collection. By working closely with a group of artisans in Jaipur, I Love Linen has created a sublime collection that focuses on hand stitched details and hand dyed fabrics. They have also expanded their ever popular pure linen range to include duck down filled cushions, floor cushions and introduced new range of screen printed pillow cases and cushions.
Hundred Acre Wood
Recently, I came across Hundred Acre Wood, a new online store offering covetable hanging planters. Run by two Melbournians, Emma and Mike, who love the outdoors and enjoying seeing lots of it indoors too, Hundred Acre Wood has a beaut range of ceramic, copper and industrial planters. They also offer free delivery and returns Australia-wide.
Bespoke bedroom furniture company, Heatherly Design, has launched a stunning new collection in collaboration with leading interior designer, Anna Spiro. Proudly Australian made and designed, this dynamic duo has created a truly lust-worthy series of bedheads featuring Anna Spiro’s latest textile collection.
Adairs continues to make its mark as a lifestyle brand offering on-trend homewares and furniture at a reasonable price. This season, prints are perfectly edited, especially when teamed with a contemporary palette of blue and grey. More than just offering bedding, you’ll also find they have some great lighting, artwork and tableware options to give your home a new dimension.
Bastille and Sons
Here comes the sun with Bastille and Sons Spring/Summer collection. Embodying the essence of a French summer, their iconic Croisette Armchair has been updated in a Mediterranée shade of blue and also soft pastel hues.
Brighten any room with the HappeeTrees coat stand. Available in 15 playful colours and two sizes, it is not only practical but the perfect way to give any space just the right dose of personality. I also love that HappeeTrees is Australian owned and all their products are manufactured here in Australia.
With the holiday season just around the corner, Kmart is offering a fresh take on Christmas decorating. Forget traditional red, green and white. Instead, Kmart has a contemporary palette of grey and black that is layered with the warmth of timber and metallic accents.
