Like January, September is all about new beginnings. It invites you to switch up your routines, change out home décor and start fresh. With the kids back at school and the seasons slowing shifting from summer to autumn, this month, the shoppers in Property Playground have snapped up an array of home goodies that are a little out there. We’re talking about dramatic black paint, a side table that appears to defy the laws of gravity and a humble chrome tap (yes, really!). Eager to dive in? So are we.
Classic Art Deco has been given a contemporary twist with this Charleston side table from M&S. Its sleek marble base and warm brushed brass top balance each other out beautifully and the space-saving shape works in large and small rooms alike (because everyone needs a place to rest their cocktail, glass of fizz or G&T of an evening).
We love crisp white walls as much as the next person, but when it comes to setting a moody vibe, there’s nothing quite like a bit of black magic. And who said black wall paint has to be gaudy and grim? With this off-black, you can achieve a chic, sophisticated look (if you’re not afraid to double down on paint). It’s a lived-in, homey colour with a cement-like finish that can take centre stage in the living room, bedroom or hallway (or all three?).
If you thought the Property Playground shoppers were all about vintage finds and luxury décor, this chrome tap will prove that even basic hardware is cherished. Sure, a tap may not get your pulse racing, but this contemporary waterfall mixer tap is sure to help turn your bathroom into a spa-like oasis. The square spout and angular body offer a quick, easy and affordable fix when updating your bathroom to a more modern day design.
The verdict is in: curved homeware is making waves across every social media platform. Curves and arches are all part of the new, clean aesthetic with organic shapes and raw finishes. And this Cox & Cox vase ticks all the boxes. Crafted from beautifully smooth earthenware, the curvaceous silhouette sparks the same curiosity as a painting or sculpture. Whether your aesthetic leans to boho, minimalist or modern, a stunning stone vase slides into every home, and looks great by itself or filled with fresh or faux (we won’t tell) greenery.
We do love a piece of furniture that has underestimated European charm and retro elegance. The generous 3 drawers and 2 cupboards of this sideboard offer plenty of space and storage to hide away board games, dinner sets, knickknacks and a lot more. While the delicate angled legs give it a hint of Scandinavian chic, the light oak wood and recessed handles helps it fit into contemporary and traditional designs alike.
