It’s time for an autumn/winter refresh with new and seriously stylish homewares. Hitting the sweet spot for quality and value, the latest collection from M&S has designs for every room in your home. Here’s why we love it so much, and think you will, too.
To start, it’s just perfect for every home. Whether yours is a traditional terrace or a modern new-build, there is something to suit every room in every home, whilst also reflecting your own personal style. Designed especially for the autumn-winter season, but versatile enough to extend well beyond the colder months and into spring and summer, it’s just the thing for rethinking your home right now.
It’s said that even a small change can spark joy, so if you find you have a room that doesn’t give you a boost when you step foot inside it, then maybe it’s time for a refresh. This new range from M&S has everything to make that deserved, feel-good style statement.

M&S has created a perfectly curated edit of trends to trust. Just one item can enhance the whole space; a new piece of furniture that changes the dynamic, a stunning table lamp that elevates the whole space or even new cushions in a sassy colour mix. It’s affordable, too, so whatever your vibe, you’ll find pieces to switch up your style without getting overly spendy.
The collection boasts a mix of colours including rich autumnal shades, opulent jewel-like hues and calming neutrals, creating a palette for everyone; a scheme to reflect your unique personality. And what makes the designs so beautiful is how they balance timeless style that lasts, with trend-led, of-the-moment features.
There are three looks in the collection to discover – Casual Retreat; Boho Glamour; Modern Living – with each offering a different vibe. You’ll find soft furnishings, bedding, furniture, lighting and accessories in each, making it easy to pull a look together for a single room or throughout your home. There are plenty of pieces designed to surprise!
And there are no rules to follow when using the designs, and the pieces in the collection can be used interchangeably – mixed and matched as you desire – taking items from the three looks, blending them to create the style that works for you.

Let’s dive into the three looks. The ‘Casual Retreat’ trend is an eclectic, artsy scheme showcasing lots of colour with a beautiful palette of warm ochres, dusky blues and burnt oranges – shades that work wonderfully this time of year. You’ll also find painterly florals, vibrant patterns and beautiful motifs teamed with tassels, tufts and embroidery that bring plenty of characterful detail.
It has a subtle touch of Bloomsbury-inspired style that is just gorgeous used in a bedroom. The collection’s new bedding and sheets will elevate a bedroom quickly, giving it a totally new feel – great if you want a quick decor update without spending a fortune. Use a combination of bedding in a mix of florals, patterns and plains to boost the space in an instant.
If you’re into a more polished style, take a look at ‘Boho Glamour’. It’s all about opulence, with lots of sumptuous velvet, polished metals and a palette of deep inky blue, emerald green and flashes of fuchsia and bright pink. This magnificent mix of colours creates a moody, yet eye-catching look, which is at the heart of ‘Boho Glamour’.
It emits a twilight-like feel with dark hues that has a sense of glamour, especially with its jewel-like hues. All together, the combination of finishes create an air of luxury, but without a hefty price tag – this is accessible luxury.
For a simpler style that combines Scandinavian minimalism with Japanese-inspired black ceramics and pastels, look to ‘Modern Living’. Its beauty lies in its pale colour palette and streamlined features that, when combined, deliver a strong, clean look.
Soft grey, powered pink and teal blend together wonderfully, while just a hint of pattern on cushions, bedding, accessories and art is enough to make an impact. We adore the Linear vase (£12.50) and ceramic jug (£29.50) that look utterly striking.
One thing you can be sure of is quality. Every item in the collection comes with all the quality and standard that you’d expect from M&S, but without a hefty price tag. The prices are just as attractive as the designs themselves, making achieving a stylish home much easier and accessible. Whatever style or piece you choose from the collection, from a scatter cushion to a new upholstered bed frame, it’ll instantly enhance your home. Time to go shopping…
