Give your space a seasonal switch-up with Darren Kennedy’s top homeware picks for autumn

Home looking a little tired? It’s the perfect time to treat your space to a seasonal refresh. Enter the competition below to win a €250 Homesense gift card. For inspiration, TV personality Darren Kennedy shares his favourite homeware picks to get you started.

It’s been a challenging time recently, and we’ve relied on our homes more than ever as they became makeshift offices, gyms, and even classrooms. So as the seasons change and life returns to some sort of new normal, it’s about time we showed our homes some love and gave those much used spaces a well-deserved refresh.

Enter here to WIN a €250 Homesense gift card 

Homesense

Homelover and Homesense fan Darren Kennedy is switching up his space for the new season with his top Homesense picks to transform a lived-in space. Combining natural tones and textures like wood, rattan and leather with a nod to seventies details is a great way to add glamour and a touch of fun, perfect for Darren’s signature bold look.

Subtle design

Homesense

This grey patterned rug, €139.99, will ground any space with its soft, neutral palette, as well as providing a soft surface underfoot.

Take a seat

Homesense

A dedicated relaxation zone is a must, and what better than a gorgeous swinging chair? Expect it to become everyone’s favourite chillout spot. Hangout chair, €349.99.

Warm tones

It’s hard to beat leather for its rich colour and touch-me texture. This versatile piece would look great anywhere from a hallway to a bedroom. Leather perch, €139.99.

High shine 

Choosing elevated everyday pieces is a great way to make your home feel luxurious and welcoming. Add some glamour to mealtimes with this Dinner’s Ready cutlery, €26.99. 

Lighten up 

Lamps can turn a mediocre space into something warm and inviting: a must-have in every space. This one combines its compact curved shape with eye-catching black and gold finishes. Lunar lamp, €22.99.

Fun finds

Inject personality with quirky living room accessories, all available from Homesense.

For the IMAGE Interiors team the colder months means turning to cosy shades with touches of organic texture, providing the warmth that may be lacking outside. We also love the transformative power of switching up just a few key pieces in a room.

An eye-catching vase here or colourful print there can introduce colour or texture where it had been lacking. Our picks from the Homesense collection are all guaranteed to help refresh your space, ready for the new season.

Fired up 

Add some autumnal tones with this abstract circles framed wall print, €26.99. Combine with other pieces or hang alone for a clear pop of colour.

Fresh feel 

Plants are a great way to make any space feel fresh. You can add a touch of green to several levels of a space with hanging options like this mother of pearl plant, €9.99.

Add texture 

Strong block colours will always draw your eye in a space, but add tactility too with details like the pleats on this cushion, €16.99.

Brighten up 

Homesense

When it comes to colour, don’t feel furniture has to play it safe. The joyful colour of this sofa, €349.99, will instantly lift your mood.

Easy living 

If you want to add interest to a space but keep it feeling relaxed, look to pieces that share a colour palette. Earthy accessories feel calm yet cool, all available from Homesense.

Rattan dream 

Look for furniture with details that set it apart, like the rattan insert on this wood bistro dining chair, €79.99.

Simple elegance

To avoid a space feeling overly cluttered, sometimes pared-back is best, like this ceramic ornament, €16.99.

Pattern play 

The subtle design of this pot, €19.99, will complement your favourite plant, while also adding some interest to your space.

There’s no place like Homesense – find something for every kind of homelover, on every visit, with great value and huge distinctive range. Discover everyday essentials and fab finds all at irresistible prices so you can experiment with your home in the #SeptemberSwitchUp at Homesense, part of the TK Maxx family.
