the winter home with ralph lauren

Deirdre Brennan - Tuesday, June 05, 2012


Winter is well and truly here if today is anything to go by. Temperatures have plummeted .... days are short .... and there is no place like a cosy home .... even better, with a glowing fire. 


Home in winter means baskets of freshly cut wood and pine cones gathered on walks .... bowls of apples and pears .... the texture of wool, cashmere, corduroy, velvets and knits .... tartan throw rugs to curl up with or simply add warmth to the mood of the room.


When the weather is bleak enjoy time in the kitchen cooking up a storm .... indulge in the odd hot chocolate .... enjoy the scents of winter with collections of candles. A bare branch in a vase will compliment the more wintry tones .... bowls of camellias, a welcome splash of colour.


Ralph Lauren does wintry textured fabrics so well .... and they are available here. Remember a neutral palette allows for seasonal change .... much like the layering up we do with fashion !!
