The Kmart August Living Collection is More Colourful than Ever

It goes without saying that I’m a lover of bold hue and a big fan of prints. So when the news of the Kmart August Living range hit my inbox, it’s safe to say that I went into a fit that involved the sort of high-pitched squealing no grown man should ever take part in.

But that’s the effect Kmart has on me. If you’re just as addicted to decorating as I am (take the test here), and you love to bag a bargain, then you’re going to go equally batty over the affordable and on-trend pieces that have just landed at Kmart today.

With so much variety in this range, there really is something for everyone. So let me show you some of the best bits from the new collection, so you too can lose your mind!

The Kmart August Living Collection

Inspired by international design trends, the team at Kmart have taken cues from Cuba, Hamptons and Scandinavia for their August homewares drop. The items in the range are fresh and contemporary, easily adaptable to fit in with your existing interior design scheme, and are versatile enough that you can take them from room to room.

Daring prints are prominent in the new Cuba collection, with palm leaf motifs a big standout. Alongside those, bold colours like emerald green are used with absolute abandon, which taps into this year’s hottest interiors trend, Colour Carnevale (more on that here). You’ll also notice a big dose of black and white used too, to bring a sense of calm to an otherwise vibrant palette.

The Classic Cove range is the collection for lovers of a more subdued colour story. It taps into a Hamptons vibe with tranquil teal tones sitting alongside natural materials like wood, marble and cork. Pops of brass bring in a little bling, but the whole look is rather calm and considered.

“We never rest at Kmart – we’re always looking for the next hot item,” says their General Manager Living, Julie Miller-Sensini. “Each season, we put more emphasis on new designs, improved quality and more of what Australians love. We take pride in helping people create the homes of their dreams”.

It goes without saying that I will be heading to Kmart immediately – elbows out – ready to take on the crowd. There are so many bargains in this range that you’re sure to get a whole loot of goodies without spending a fortune.

  1. I snapped up the ‘Egg Chair’ …. absolutely loving this new catalogue! But mostly, I’m crushing over the styling of the outdoor items in the catalogue! Makes me feel like I’m back in the Beverly Hills Hotel with the use of a “Martinique” style wall paper … V V Classy!!! Love your blog – If you don’t mind, I’m going to stick around for a bit and have a closer look!!!! xoxo
