Now that the hot weather is well an truly behind us, it’s time to embrace the winter months and start creating cosy homes that you can’t wait to get back too.

As often happens around now, we start to turn our thoughts to soft furnishings like throws and cushions. Stores are full of textures like faux fur rugs, knitted blankets and soft pile cushion covers.

The colour pallette is subtle with muted tones of nature, including stone, browns, camel and grey.
