From stylish bedding and pillows to contemporary throws and accessories, we’re sure our stores’ unbe-leaf-able ranges will have something to inspire and tempt you! Here’s @josiesmithmedia’s current top #autumnhomeware picks..


ASDA Rust Luxury Washed Stripe Tuft Duvet Set @ £20.00

If you have a relatively neutral bedroom/guest room, seasonally appropriate duvet sets are a nice way to add a splash of colour and in this case, a casual autumnal feel. This Rust Luxury Washed Stripe Tuft Duvet Set features in Asda’s Duvet Covers collection and it’s 100% cotton. Single set includes 1x pillowcase. Double, King and Super King includes 2 x pillowcases. Not suitable for a tumble drier, machine washable at 30C. Material from The Better Cotton Initiative. This is better for the people who produce it and better for the environment it grows in. Available in the following sizes: Single: W135 x L200cm/Double: W200 x L200cm/King: W225 x L220cm/Super King: W260 x L220cm.

THE WISE MONKEY Upcycled Camera Lamp @ £65.00

This vintage camera has been sympathetically upcycled into an eye-catching retro lamp. Indoor lighting is particularly important as the nights draw in and we live more under artificial lights. Make sure your living spaces are brightly but sympathetically lit – no one looks good harshly lit!

ASDA Origin Cream Berber Wool Rug @ £70.00

Taking inspiration from Moroccan styling, the Berber rug is a gorgeous choice for a modern home. The deep fluffy pile is made from 100% wool giving it a natural soft feeling of warmth underfoot. The cream colour with black detailing will suit a variety of colour schemes. (Choose your size – 120 x 170cm/160 x 230cm/80 x 150cm)

PRIMARK Burnt Orange Velvet Cushion Cover @ £2.50

These Primark cushion covers come in a variety of colours and are very easy to wash. Create an autumnal display of colour inside your home – mix and match a variety of oranges, greys and mustards. (Product code: 2201402)

THE PERFUME SHOP Rebecca Tracey Black Pepper, Lemon & Geranium 300g Candle @ £32.00

The gorgeous and spicy black pepper is a wonderful companion to the zest of the lemon and uplifting floral note of geranium. Together they create an incredibly intoxicating and beautifully intricate aroma, that lets each fragrance shine as it burns and fills the room with scent. Rebecca’s perfect blend of 100% pure essential oils, natural cotton wick, and GM free soya wax ensure that you can enjoy the gorgeous aromatherapy fragrance for approximately 60 hours. (Your 300g candle comes in an attractive, translucent chocolate brown glass – beautifully presented within gorgeous 100% recycled packaging. Before each use to ensure a clean burn, trim your wick to between 1/8 and ¼ inch. Product code: 1258817)


PRIMARK Ivory Tufted Arch Cushion @ £10.00

Add texture to your lounging space with this stylish neutral cushion. I love the abstract look and feel of this 50cm square. (Product code: 6519101)
