Let your surroundings inspire. Think rich ambers, deep reds, velvety greens and the patina of worn wood. A richer interior will set a warmer tone. Visualize the rich autumnal palette, the smell of oranges, mulled wine & the warmth that an open fire creates.
Swap the cotton/linen throw on your bed for fur & velvet- something luxurious to the touch, think beautiful fake fur and velvet. Drape armchairs with extra throws
Fabrics & Scatters
Play with different fabrics and textures. Use linen or cotton on your seating areas, juxtapose with scatters in rich velvets and darker muted tones.
Copper and antique brass are big in the décor scene. The colour and patina reflect a warmness reminiscent of sunshine. Add these elements in the form of candlesticks and small occasional tables.
Relaxed summer settings give way to layered dinner tables and comfort food. Light candles in groupings and add accents in rich reds and antique brass with glassware, cutlery and linen.
Light things up!
Few things play better on our senses than a lit fireplace; the smell & sight; the feel & sound….. Add logs to wicker baskets or stack in a niche. Fragranced candles with spicier undertones. Group together on your coffee or dining table or in glass vases for a striking and welcoming effect.
Above all, experiment…be daring and add your own stamp of style to your special space!
