Modern living just got gritty with urban style leading the way
The unstoppable rise of London’s hipster scene and the city’s edgy industrial aesthetic are key looks for homes in 2017, and Sainsbury’s is leading the way with its stunning new Restoration collection.
Think stripped-back warehouse walls, exposed brick and old-school metal radiators. Channel the urban style of the East End’s Brick Lane, or the south London chic of historic Borough Market, with its artisan street-food stalls.
The Restoration collection is packed with desirable furniture and contemporary accessories to incorporate throughout your decor, making it a simple way to add a touch of gritty urban chic at home. Need a hint of colour? Try flashes of pillar-box red to complement the monochrome tones and graphic prints that dominate the collection.
In the bedroom, soften plain painted backdrops by choosing linens in soft woven checks, spots and stripes, and accent the look by layering with throws and plain grey scatter-cushions for an extra injection of cool.
Work the monochrome vibe by accessorising with a black ombre glass vase, a plain checked lightshade and simple glass tealight holder. Scroll through our top buys and go to sainsburyshome.co.uk to find your nearest store.

Simplicity is often the best when it comes to sharp styling and this smart check shade will work with almost any combination of colours.

For sheer understated elegance, it's hard to beat this black ombre glass bottle. It makes a statement on its own, or use it to display a couple of striking blooms.

Experiment with textures and find the right mix for your room - a tactile waffle fabric feels fabulous and looks great layered on the bed with pillows and other cushions.
Even summer evenings can feel a bit chilly once the sun's gone down, so have this gorgeously soft waffle throw ready to keep you snug and cosy at any time.
Keep this as a decorative addition to your industrial-style bedroom, or hang it up with a candle inside to create a silvery glow. It's perfect for entertaining outdoors, too.
No matter how urban your look, there's always room for a mirror, which adds light and a sense of space to any room (plus you can check you're still looking super-cool…).
