Our designers’ simple guide to unlock cosiness

As the days get shorter, colours, metallics and texture are the easy ways to create a welcoming and warm happy place! 

“Let’s embrace jewel tones, they are perfect for the cooler season!” Head Interior Designer, Rebecca

“Colour is one of the simplest, most effective ways to change how a room feels. Jewel tones are exactly what they sound like; deep, rich colours like ruby, amethyst, sapphire, emerald, and topaz. Undeniably, they instantly add a touch of warmth and sophistication. Think of them as an addition to your room like a pair of earrings to a classic outfit. They don’t have to be used in abundance to be impactful! A few velvet, silk or satin cushions, an elegant trimming on a lampshade, a beautiful autumnal dried flower arrangement. Even small amount of deep rich colour touches will help create a warm, welcoming atmosphere. A little goes a long way...”

 “Warmth inspired by nature” Junior Interior Designer, Giulia

“In the cold seasons, we spend a lot of time indoors so it’s important for our well-being to incorporate some elements of nature in our design. Bringing the textures from outdoors in has a positive calming effect on us. Think warm tones of green and neutral colours. But it’s not just about the look, it’s also about the feel of these materials that keeps us grounded and content too. Rustic wood, wicker baskets, dried flowers, all combined with atmospheric low lighting. I love the way our spider web candles, with their perfect wax lace effect, cast subtle shadows on the other elements in the room, including this wallpaper made with natural cork. It’s all about natural texture to give a room a soft touch that gives us much comfort”

 “Yes to gold! Always.” Interior Designer, Jenny

“Whether you go large or display gold details around your room, gold will not only add a touch of sparkle to your interior but will also give an inviting warm glow like no other metals do. It’s elegant and luxurious. It goes with almost everything and is probably one of the timeless classics in interior design. I like to decorate a room with small gold items as it reflects the light and helps the eye wander around... Side tables, vases, lighting, cushions. Like yellow, gold is a colour that illuminates a space, brings it warmth and depth, and will keep the autumnal chill at bay!
