Leaves are caramelising, the air is crisper and we're reaching for the thermostat. As autumn performs its amber infused, transitional dance our focus moves inward again, to our homes. We may be leaving behind picnics in the park, days at the beach and alfresco evenings with friends but, all is not lost. With it, autumn brings bluster, chill and shorter days but it's a rich source of seasonal interiors inspiration that we can't wait to dive into.
This time of year is all about feathering the nest with creature comforts to make the lull into winter that much more inviting – luxurious velvet throws, cosy sheepskins, down feel duvets, earthy home fragrance and mood enhancing lighting. Hygge is well and truly back on the agenda!
Hot on the heels of London Fashion Week - with autumn knocking on our doors - we're exploring the trends that are sure to give your home an autumnal update. Drawing inspiration from the catwalks and high street, as the worlds of fashion and interiors continue to cross-pollinate their trend fruits.
Leopard Print Trend For the Home
Hailed by many as a neutral, leopard print home accessories add punch to a neutral scheme or makes a style statement when clashed with other on-trend patterns and bold colours.
We’re by no means suggesting a Cruella de Vil, wholesale leopard print home makeover, instead subtle hints of leopard - a playful leopard print cushion or a sumptuous faux-fur throw - are the perfect way to inject a bit of the print du jour in your living room this season.
Bold Floral Print Soft Furnishings
The bigger the better when it comes to taking florals from our summer print of choice to autumnal must have. A bold bloom is a sure way to guarantee a dramatic, sultry interior with a maximalist aesthetic.
Romantic, renaissance style peonies and roses are ideal for packing a floral punch to soften a modern, achromatic room or, layering to enhance the romance of your French bedroom furniture. Our collection of opulent, flower emblazoned, velvet cushions, French wall art and floral scented candles will give your home a floral breath of fresh air.
Statement Velvet Armchair
No living room or bedroom is complete, this season, without a bold, statement armchair. Decadent velvet upholstered French chairs in rich tones, such as bold blues, warming yellows and majestic reds, are an absolute must-have investment piece to round off 2018. Ideal for cosying next to the fire, warm drink in hand with your favourite book.
Rich Red Velvet Chesterfield Sofa
Bold, warm and luxurious, deep reds were made to make this time of year shine a little brighter. In sumptuous velvets, glamourous silks, tactile suedes & cosy knits, rich reds are perfect for both your wardrobe and home this season.
While our love of blush pink could never be wavered, we're seeing a move towards bolder colours for our bedroom sofas. Emerald green has been a firm favourite for a couple of years and navy has been slowly creeping into our living rooms, but the new de rigueur colour has hints of an aromatic French Merlot. Red velvet sofas and armchairs are like a warm hug for the soul, honey for the eyes and a stroke of individuality in a classic, period home.
Our Majestic Crimson Velvet Sofa and Armchair with brass gold studwork, effortlessly creates a romantic renaissance-style look when styled with floral velvet cushions in an an array of rich colours, gold accent side tables, and vases of flowing bloom.
