The kids are back to school any day now and it’s time to regain a sense of order in the home (as well as some sanity)! Giving your interiors a new lease of life will start this academic year off with a refreshing feeling of calm, as well as excited anticipation, ensuring that your home life is truly revitalised and ready for the next chapter.

We’ve collated 10 of our favourite back to school decor products that will help you rejuvenate your home this autumn 2018.

1. John Lewis – Wicker Baskets

An imperative part of getting the kids prepared for going back to school, is organising the piles of toys, books, clothes and numerous nameless nik-naks they have accumulated over the summer. Home storage units are therefore vital!

These two John Lewis luxury willow baskets, lined with crisp linen, make ideal storage baskets and look enchanting.

5. A by Amara – Gold Multi Drip Vase

Nothing says ‘new start’ quite like abundant, fresh flowers. This is the time to fill your home with a magnificent display or two of vibrant florals, adding energy and joy to the space.

We chose this striking gold drip vase from A by Amara to bring a touch of the 2018 interior design trends into your home, the gold creating an ambience of warmth as we slowly move into the darker months. Made from glass, it has a chic, antique look and is enhanced with gold drips for an evocative finish.

6. Luxury Cushions

Replacing your cushions is a quick and affordable way to instantly transform your interiors, marking the start of the new school year. Trendset with the latest floral pattern prints, bold navy blues or the rich shades of purple, inspired by Pantone’s Colour of the Year 2018. Or simply opt for bursts of vibrant colour to brighten up the winter months coming! We recommend the selection of luxurious cushion fabrics available via Mark Alexander.

Here we used radiant Saddle Blanket cushions by Mulberry to contrast boldly against the striking monochromatic palette, further brought to life by the vivid floral bedside displays.
