Here at jmm PR, we have been scouring the internet for our favourite articles of the week.
This week brings tips on getting your dining table ready for autumn and the most Instagrammed room colours!
The recent cold and wet weather has undoubtedly led a vast majority of the country to swap BBQ’s and alfresco dining for cosy meals at the dining table. Many of us are used to decorating our dining tables over the festive period, but how many of us can say that we do the same in preparation for autumn? If you’re planning on inviting family or friends over to enjoy a delicious meal (with under six guests of course), this article is filled with tips and tricks on how to give your table a stunning seasonal makeover.
When it comes to autumn table décor, the key is to create a warm and inviting atmosphere that will make your guests feel comfortable. A centrepiece is the easiest way to achieve this, by using items such as candles, fairy lights, sprigs of foliage and even some pinecones for a rustic look. Seasonal cookware, such as the pumpkin-shaped dishes pictured in the article, is another great way to add an autumnal touch to your next dinner party.
At jmm PR, we’re big fans of using flowers to create a stylish focal point and what better time to make the most of all of the stunning autumnal flowers and foliage that are currently in season! Good Homes suggests incorporating Chrysanthemums and Eucalyptus into your table décor to create a beautiful, on-trend look that’s sure to wow your dinner guests.
Finally, if you’re looking for some autumnal décor that’s a bit more unique, we love the idea of creating a Mad Hatter’s Tea Party inspired theme, complete with bright colours and bold patterns. According to Good Homes, experimenting with a statement table runner and using recycled gin bottles as candle holders are the just a few ways to recreate this look!
Enjoying a delicious meal at the dining table is the perfect way to reconnect with loved ones, and what better way to create a cosy, calming atmosphere than by giving your table an autumnal makeover. Make sure you check out this article and don’t forget to let us know which idea you’ll be recreating this season!

Some of the best interior inspo can be found on Instagram so we were intrigued to discover the most Instagrammed room colours. When we found out that pink came out on top for five out of nine rooms, we knew instantly that this article from House Beautiful would feature on our blog post this week!
According to new research by Rated People, pink is the most Instagrammed colour for bedrooms, bathrooms, playrooms, nurseries and staircases. A few of us here at jmm PR would paint every room pink if we could, so it was no surprise to us that the colour ranked number one! We adore the pink bathroom that is showcased in this article, the tiles really give the room the wow factor and the pink colour teams so well with the plant pots and accessories.
Leaving pink aside for a moment, the most Instagrammed colour for the dining room and hallway is blue, while green came out on top for the kitchen and living room. If you know us well, you’ll know that green is also a firm favourite at jmm PR (the clue is in our logo!). The green kitchen exampled in the article is one of our favourite shades and it really stands out paired with the gold taps and handles. The living room showcased by House Beautiful is a completely different shade of green, which creates a luxurious feel and makes a real statement. It goes to show that using colours and daring to be bold with your interior design really works!
Were you surprised to find out that pink, green and blue were the most Instagrammed room colours? We were delighted to find out that our favourites are so on-trend! Let us know if any of your rooms follow these colour schemes or if you prefer more neutral greys and beiges, we’d love to know.
