Over the past couple of weeks, temperatures have quickly dropped, sending many of us indoors to rug up under fluffy doonas and blankets with a good book or an addictive TV series.
Now is the time to make your home warm and inviting, a place to spend cosy hours surrounded by beautiful things.
When you’re considering updating your interiors, think old Hollywood glam.
Gone are the days of cold leather couches and light throws. We’re welcoming back old favourites such as thick velvet, evident in luxurious sofas and large woollen rugs.
White is also taking a back seat to warmer, jewel tones such as emerald, jade, deep teal, blush and burgundy. When you combine these shades with rich fabrics, the effect is that of warmth and opulence.
Adding to the warming vibe are brass, copper and gold highlights, particularly in statement lighting or tables.
Since this winter’s trend is glamour, what’s more glam than a large Marilyn Monroe print? A monotone artwork can be used for the centrepiece of a bright feature wall and can serve to highlight other colours throughout the room, especially considering the bold colour trends this season. This print is from Urban Road. Visit urbanroad.com.au.
The Home Republic Vintage Washed quilt cover in Prune. It’s from Adairs. A beautiful rug can warm up a room and give your frozen feet relief from cold tiles.
This Felix Clock in forest green is from Salt & Pepper.
Stylish touch: lighting
Adding a touch of brass, gold or copper to a darker room can add an element of luxe to an otherwise plain space. The Comet pendant in copper is from Domayne.
A coloured bed frame can be the perfect piece to bring your room together, with velvet options providing an air of luxury. The latest trend sees interior designers moving away from bright colours and towards richer, deeper colours. The Kara fabric bed frame is available at Domayne.
There is nothing better than curling up under a thick blanket during the late winter and early spring months. This beautiful emerald quilt from Adairs is the perfect night time companion.
