Cold, wind and rain abound and we are thinking warm and cosy interiors and all that go with it.
The glow of candles, bamboo lamp light and the warmth of timber.
Earthy tones and rustic settings.
Exposed timber new or old, makes an architectural statement and creates its own warm colour palette.
The appeal of wool and cashmere fabrics no matter what colour palette.
The warmth of rustic materials, fabulous design and clever lighting .. so simple !!

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 !!
