winter is coming

With winter imminent, it’s time to get ready for the long, dark nights and the all-too-rapidly dropping temperatures. And what better way to prepare than to indulge in some extra cosy, extra plush and extra luxurious soft furnishings for your home?

Read on to discover the must-have trends for your home this winter.

Shades of grey

This year’s ‘neutrals’ come in all the shades of a crisp winter’s day – think tendrils of wood smoke drifting away on the still night air, imagine window panes crystalised with ice, and picture silvered branches glittering in the morning frost.

Woolly knits

Knitted hats, woolly jumpers, and chunky cable-knit throws create instant warmth both practically and visually. Indulge in a super-soft wool throw – essential for adding that extra layer in the bedroom for when the outside temperature drops, or even better to wrap up in while relaxing on the sofa late into the night.

Plush, strokable textures

This winter, luxurious texture is king. Surround yourself with deliciously plush throws, rugs and cushions that you won’t be able to stop stroking and stroking…

Country cottage check

Adding touches of check is a super easy way to bring a little of the winter time countryside into your home. Keep things simple with a cushion or two, or embrace traditional tartan wholeheartedly with rich red bed linen.
