Home Etc: A Glimpse at Neptune’s A/W collection

Last month, in amongst all the Christmas in July fun (posts on all those events to follow once we’re heading towards to festive season), I was lucky enough to go to Neptune‘s preview of their Autumn/Winter collection. As a huge fan of their beautiful products and always up for some home product perusal and styling delights, I was thrilled to be able to head over to check out the range. Here are a few (well, slightly over a dozen!) of my favourite shots from the day. 

I loved the smooth, clean lines of this tablescape. There were terrariums and succulents aplenty on display throughout the three floors of the showroom (a gallery in Bloomsbury had been transformed into a Neptune beladen haven for the day!).

These beautiful art deco style martini glasses caught my eye, perfect for pre- or post-dinner drinks, don’t you think.

I really enjoyed the clean lines of this drinks trolley. It felt pretty, but industrial and masculine at the same time.

St Germain is fast becoming a key cocktail ingredient for me when devising cocktails – I love the sweetness and brightness it can bring to proceedings, so I was delighted to spot it while touring the showroom.

Gorgeous, squishy, inviting sofas, in the gorgeous mustard shade and the grey ‘Smoke’ they’ve added to their roster for the new season. I adored ‘Smoke’ – much of our home is kitted out in blues, greys and neutrals, so it was very much in my taste!

This beautiful desk worked with the same chrome and glass of the drinks cart. Perhaps a budding Don Draper could combine both in his study?

A nest of tables repurposed into inventive shelving. Throughout the space furniture was being used in so many different, interesting ways.

So very pretty, no?

I loved these bold, artful mirrors – we are looking for one for our dining room at the moment – as it’s the centre room of a dark terrace some more light is needed – and these are firmly on my list as an option. Those painted frames really add a certain something.

These goblets are fabulous, aren’t they? Very Game of Thrones!

This cool blue dresser is so charming. I loved this piece, it was so solid and well made. I also loved how the shelves were supported on notches in the wood, rather than with pegs or nails which can go missing, or be tricky to adjust. An idea which manages to be both simple and very clever!

This enormous vase would be so pretty for lilies or branches in a hallway or on a sideboard.

I loved this huge lamp – perfect for a reading spot on chilly evenings (a.k.a. exactly where you’ll find me most winter nights!).

Coffee tables repurposed again in the kitchen space! Loved the cabinets here, which were really top-of-the-range and utilised space so well. I’d love to have a custom built kitchen where you can have spaces for all the things you like to have around when cooking and baking.

Stacked tables as an unusual and utilarian island.

And last but not least, some beautiful kitchen accoutrements – I think one of the gigantic mugs will have to be purchased soon for morning coffees.

The space chosen really showcased the brand and the products beautifully. I loved the styling and mood of the whole space; the combination of comfort and ease coupled with clean lines and mixed textures is very much within my aesthetic. I’m excited to return to Neptune soon to pick up a few pieces from the collection for our home.

    AAaaargh!! I am SO jealous Claire β€” although if I'd been invited along to this, I fear our credit card would be in for an absolute hammering!! πŸ™‚ I absolutely love Neptune β€” one of my favourite homeware brands. Their kitchens are to die for β€” when we finally get around to replacing the revolting kitchen, we inherited, it's a toss up between Neptune or Harvey Jones β€” absolutely love them both β€” they'd sit beautifully in our cottage. Great post β€” thanks for linking up! Caro xx #HomeEtc
