Celia Sawyer Shares What’s HOT for A/W 2016
FAUX FUR: “Simple throws or cushions or a single chair in faux fur is really up on the list this year. Invest in some lovely faux fur throws. They add a real feeling of warmth in a room, even if they are just thrown over the arm of a chair, layering like this really does make a difference and you can never have too many. They work well in a conservatory, living room, and bedroom.”
TEXTURE: “It all about the texture this A/W! I love a big mix of textures, lots of chrome, lacquered woods, leather, faux fur, glass and rich velvets on furniture with muted tones but with deep strong colours in accessories such as cushions and throws”
LIGHT: “Also invest in some candles and a good hurricane lamp, this gives your room a warm, golden glow which really helps it to feel cozy and inviting in cooler months”
COLOUR: “There is a lot out of choice out there but definitely look out for rich strong blues, deep reds and silvers, there are some beautiful indigo and navy cushions this year which add sophistication but also add a new refreshing, strong look to your home, perfect for autumn/winter.”
WHERE TO SHOP: I love to shop for high street home pieces either in Zara Home which is great because items there look expensive but are well priced and you can really pick up almost everything from lovely little coffee table boxes and vases , or Homesense where I find an array of unique little finishing touches even down to their fab picture frames!
