The New Cape Town Collection By Esprit Home

13 June 2014 0


With home accessories it is a little bit like with fashion. Once the temperature are rising to simmering heights, everyone in the business is talking about autumn and winter collections. The kind of saturated colours, warm and heavy materials, rich patterns kind of talk. So it comes as no surprise that I am sitting on my sofa, typing these word, sipping on a glass of ice cold apple juice and sweating – while I have another autumn collection for your home on my screen.

Esprit Home has been launching home accessories since 2006 and recently all their collections have been named after major world cities. So for the upcoming autumn season they have chosen the South African metropolis Cape Town as an eponym. And carrying the promise of the African south, this collection comes with vibrant colours dominated by red hues and rich textures and patterns for your floors, beds, sofas and walls.

While glancing over the pictures of Esprit Home’s new collection launching in August 2014, I have noticed the patterned rug in particular. With its black and white pattern and red rim, it adds so much emphasis to a room that I can literally imagine it in a rather clean, scarcely furnished room as a visual anchor and highlight. 

Oh and Cape Town made me think of another fact: While I am sweating here in anticipation of summer, the folks in Cape Town and on the entire southern hemisphere are in the midst of autumn. So after all, this collection does come just in time – at least for some of us on our crazy planet! 

Happy weekend everyone!

    (I had to make coffee before reading this one.) I like these earthy tones. I think I’m getting ready to bring some red into my life, but only a touch of it, perhaps one red patterned cushion or something like that. I like the styling of this campaign (given my today’s post that shelf in the top photo isn’t cutting it for me, haha) and I love the fact that I recognise the location of the photo shoot. It’s a Dutch home that I have pinned and even featured on the blog 😉

    Happy weekend!
