Autumn Winter 2015 collection: part two
Now you’re fully up to date with our wonderful Sophisticated Living collection for this year’s AW15, it’s time to introduce you to our second look of the season: Rustic Charm. As you probably know if you’re a regular reader of this blog, I’m a huge fan of the use of texture and natural materials in interiors; whether that’s linens, driftwood, natural stone, sheepskins or leathers! Combining all these unique elements is a simple and effective way to add interest to your home. And, as they are all natural materials, they are by their very essence timeless!
A new season is always a good excuse to have a little refresh of your interiors – and we firmly believe in the Scandi way of doing things! In the colder seasons in Scandinavia, homeowners replace lighter linen curtains with heavier drapes, bring out their cosiest cushions and woollen blankets and generally ensure that their home is warm and welcoming for the bitingly cold winter months. I think the pieces in our Rustic Charm collection are just perfect for adding hygge to your home for Autumn Winter – vintage woods sit alongside aged ceramics, gently distressed metals, beautifully crafted lighting and bold statement pieces to create a range which is full of warmth and character.
So, without further ado, here are some of my top pieces adding some rustic charm in your home – this is just a selection, so make sure you check out our New Arrivals section too!
