At this time of year and particularly right now all we want to cosy up and stay warm in our homes.
Along with soft fabrics, we love texture, and right now we are seeing a lot of this online and in stores. For example, cushions with pattern weave and raised short pile, chunky knit throws, and soft sheepskins.
With so much on offer, now is the time to layer up your living room and bedroom with gorgeous soft furnishings.

home: trend [ texture overload ]
We are getting geared up for Autumn and with that comes cosy nights in with comfy cushions and fluffy throws. Tactile homeware is everywhere right now and today we share some of our favourites.
Velvet continues to be the fabric of choice this year on chairs and sofas, along with cushions. Now we are seeing velvet on lighting and lampshades like the ceiling pendant pictured from Rockett St George. [ there is also a table lamp version ]
Layer your room with tassled, fringed and pom pom cushions, throws and rugs. The more layers the better. When we look at colours for Autumn we are seeing lots creams, terracotta, red and grey. This is a lovely pallete to work with and perfect for the season.
