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.

With new colour trends appearing all the time its hard to keep up. Decorating whole rooms to the latest shades is not always an option, so instead it’s a great time to start introducing accessories and accents.

A big colour choice for now, going into next year is Red. Not an easy one to work with, so our advice is to keep it simple. Red is a colour that is going to shout out within a room, so make sure the pieces you choose enhance the space, not clutter it.

A statement clock or cabinet will draw attention in a room, as well as an armchair or sofa. Perhaps opt for a painted wall, a chalky matt finish will tone the effect down and in turn will create a more subtle finish.

A monochrome, white walled room is going to act as the best back drop to red accessories, but an industrial look also looks great with red light fittings or tiles, ideal in a kitchen.

Whatever your thoughts on the colour Red there is no doubting it’s uplifting and fun. We are on board!

It gets quite dark and opulent-gothic this autumn with bringing dark berry into home interiors. Layering up tones of this shade – think burgundy, port, rose, grape and other deep rich berry-like shades create a warm, inviting interior to see you into colder months. 

Keep the look modern with matt tones and matt fabrics, use along side dark woods and allow textures of wool, leather and velvet to work together. 

Think to use shades all the way from floor to walls to window covering to give strength to the look and pop in other jewel tones if want the odd highlight to break up the colour.
