Autumn heatwave has us basking in the sun

It may well be October 3rd, but here in the UK it was unusually hot for this time of year with weekend temperatures reaching a record 29.5C. What a joy. I hope, like me, you spent the weekend basking in the sun and soaking up the vitamin D. The gorgeous weather has spilled over into this week and fingers crossed it carries on.

It's got me thinking of ways to enjoy the relaxed summer mood all year round - when the chilly weather finally does kick in - and an obvious way seems by furnishing the home with punchy bright fabrics. Instead of cosying up to woolen whites and taupes, a hearty injection of bold mustard-yellow seems a good way to go. The beautiful Delphine range from Harlequin ticks all the boxes when it comes to adding warmth and character, don't you think? With shades of bold fuschia, grey and mustard mixed together in various stripe and floral patterns, I think the fabrics work well at adding soul to your decor all year round...
