Add a luxury touch to your home this season
As the summer months draw to a close and that much loved golden hour starts to fade away, it might be time to refresh your interiors and welcome in the winter season. Along with the drop in temperature comes the chance for you to create a warm and welcoming environment in your home. With cosy fabrics, warming colour hues, and dark woods, your home is sure to meet that winter luxury feel.
Start from the bottom and work your way up with some stylish and practical carpets or rugs. What better way to bring warmth to your home than from underfoot? When considering your decor this season, bear in mind that soft furnishings play just as big a part in your interior design as your large statement furniture pieces.
With so many leading luxury rug brands like Calvin Klein, The Rug Company, Eichholtz and GIANFRANCO FERRÈ, you can choose something modern and contemporary, or stick to a more traditional style. Your carpet or rug may subtly be the most incredibly versatile tool in your home, acting as a divider between spaces, a way of elucidating a particular style, or an extension of luxurious sophistication underneath your feet.
To add that much needed homely and comforting touch to your furniture this season, some ultra-soft luxury cushions and throws may be exactly what you need. These are quite possibly the cosiest of all winter home accessories and the perfect addition to your home this season. A simple and understated cashmere throw is ideal for curling up under on a cold night, or perhaps turn to a coloured merino or mohair wool blanket for something that elevates your furnishings.
The statement faux fur throw is a perfect choice if you are wanting something equally as glamorous as it is warming. Finish off your bedroom or living room with exquisitely printed cushions for the home to get that true sink-in feeling. Bespoke, quality printed cushions are an ideal way of creating a visual statement within your home and transforming your interior.
When it comes to your walls, do not let them go to waste this winter. Add a little life to your rooms with some carefully curated canvas prints, framed paintings and graphic artworks, and allow your taste and personality to shine through your selection. Be bold with your choices and find things that are out of the ordinary. Abstract art is a style that frequents the interior world as a universal, yet also unique, choice.
Take inspiration from the Cubism and Suprematism movements with a large, colour block piece to fill your wall with something bold and eye-catching, look to the works of Jackson Pollock and Hans Hoffman for gestural pieces of impulsivity and expression, or strip your selection back to a state which places focus on the fundamentals of art by choosing neo-plasticism works inspired by the De Stijl artists. From the pioneering abstract artworks to the modern and contemporary pieces that have followed, a grand and opulent wall decor is something to strive for this season.
If you are looking for that extra warm glow in your home, peruse over some options of luxury fragrance decor. Often overlooked and disregarded, candles and diffusers are a severely underrated accessory. These items can be easily incorporated into any room you choose and will undoubtedly be the best addition to your home this season. Candles and diffusers create a welcoming and relaxing environment, adding a mystical fragrance and undeniable ambience wherever they are placed.
Not only will they leave your interiors dosed in a mesmerising aroma of seasonal scents like Madagascar Vanilla, Citrus and Lemongrass, or Grapefruit and Orange Blossom, they can also be used as a decorative element to create an illuminated atmosphere and add a note of aesthetic beauty. From something as simple as a tea light or a few diffuser sticks to bolder arrangements of large pillar candles in candlestick holders or a porcelain incense holder, do not pass up on this alluring touch of luxury.
