Here at jmm PR, we have been scouring the internet for our favourite articles of the week.
This week brings travel-inspired décor ideas and tips on how to get your bed ready for autumn.
We all enjoy travelling and visiting new places here at jmm PR, whether it’s a week away in the sun, exploring a new city or a simple change of scenary for a weekend. Many people’s travel plans have been disrupted this year and 2020 has made us appreciate our love for travelling more than ever! When we saw this article from YourHomeStyle, we instantly fell in love with the idea of taking our passion for travel and incorporating it into our homes.
“With a bit of imagination and some clever styling choices, you can surround yourself with the sights, sounds and smells of your favourite destinations without leaving the comfort of your own home” – YourHomeStyle
The article showcases six travel-inspired home décor ideas and examples of items to help you ‘get the look’. The six ideas include:
Safari style – think animal print, rattan furniture and African-inspried colours
Club tropicana – bold colours, large tropical prints and velvet fabrics
City style – industrial furnishings, black metal and exposed brick work
French Riviera – light colours, nautical stripes and sailing-inspired accessories
Moroccan chic – geometric patterns, terracotta tiles and vibrant rugs
Ocean reef – colours of the sea paired with coral accents and ocean creature motifs
What is your favourite? We’re torn between safari style and ocean reef! Animal print is always something that divides the jmm PR team, leopard print wallpaper is either our dream or worst nightmare! Ocean reef gives us serious holiday vibes and we think this would be a great style for a bathroom.
If you’re missing your favourite holiday destination, why not take inspiration from this article and inject some of those memories into your home.

For most of us, our bed is a place of sanctuary where we rest, recharge and relax. With the temperature witnessing a significant drop this week, many of us will be preparing to hunker down for winter, on the lookout for ideas on how to ramp up the cosy factor in our homes. In this article, Good Housekeeping explains how to give your bed an autumnal makeover, filled with tips and tricks on achieving a welcoming yet stylish space that you can’t wait to jump into at the end of a long day!
When it comes to your duvet, Good Housekeeping stresses the importance of investing in a heavier one to see you through winter, with a tog rating of between nine to 10.5 being ideal for keeping you warm, while reducing overheating. In terms of selecting colours and prints, think warm, deep shades that complement the season, such as mustards, greens and rust tones. We love the idea of experimenting with bold graphic prints in deep autumnal hues, which will prevent the space from becoming dark or uninviting.
Making your bed more cosy may seem like a big task, but Good Housekeeping explains that this can be effortlessly achieved by simply adding a cushion or chunky knitted throw. This is also a great way to experiment with different textures, for example combining a faux fur cushion with a chenille blanket, for the ultimate space to relax. The Good Housekeeping team also offers up some of their favourite autumn-themed décor, including throws, cushions and duvet sets. We love the teddy fleece bedding set from Marks & Spencer and can only imagine how soft cosy it must feel on a frosty night!
How will you be getting your bed ready for autumn this year? We’ll certainly be taking the advice from this article to help us prepare for the upcoming colder nights!
