While we sit here feeling toasty in front of the fire this freezing cold weekend, I mull over the colours, textures and finishes that exude warmth in a cold climate.
Sometimes it is simply the chosen colour palette of muted hues in greige, string or faded blues and greens.
The warmth of aged timbers, the glow of candle light or an open fire.
Bookshelves filled with books both old and new.
A cosy throw rug or scatter cushion in a velvet or tartan wool
If all else fails, a chunky knit and cashmere bed socks.
Take your cue from nature itself and create a colour palette that makes you want to luxuriate indoors.
