COLOUR PERFECTION

As Autumn and Winter emerges, so will rich and dramatic colours drawn from nature and luxe textures. Dark rose petals, agate gemstones and moody velvets are the backdrop for this luxurious palette.

While these tones provide a lot of drama, it’s important to add balance with soft pastels that soothe without detracting from the romance of the look.

Styling tip: It’s all about cosy layers, sumptuous rugs, plumped-up cushions and artwork that compliments your space.

ART INSPIRED WALLPAPER

It has moved away from its traditional routes and now packs some serious artistic punch. Art inspired wallpaper can showcase bold florals, cool shapes or patterns and can also experiment with different textures and layouts.

It really has that wow factor, and will create a lasting impact for any home.

IT'S ALL ABOUT LUXURY

It’s all in the lustrous details and iconic graphic embellishments that has us praising the return of the glamourous art deco profile.

While this style oozes luxury; it has a playful balance between being feminine in its sumptuous textiles and masculline in its graphics and symmetry.
