If you’re looking for a new look for your home this autumn, team seasonal colours of smouldering gold and titanium greys with gothic blacks and dusty pinks.
The trend for this season is romantic furnishings with a hard twist and a whimsical nature. Perfect for this Halloween, for October and for winter as the clocks go back.
The French-inspired furniture company, Newtons have some gorgeous pieces that fit in nicely with this season’s trend. I am in love with the ornately designed Rococo Noir Bed which is part of the Chateau Noir collection, handmade from mahogany. Adorn the bedroom or living room with the fantastic Black Sun Wall Mirror, also from Newtons, pictured right. The classic designs with a modern edge are an inspired dark touch!
The Opala Collection by KAI has a fabulous selection of embossed velvets with a lavish quality. This unique assortment of animal skin inspired designs is available in a variety of shades including duck egg, purple, wine and black.The Opala crocodile skin is perfect for adding charm to any interior including sofas, armchairs curtains and cushions.
Bushboard’s Crystal Black solid surfacing is a modern material that offers four brand new designs which respond to the look of natural granite and stone and the growing trend for traditional yet edgy looks in the kitchen. The Encore Crystal Black features a large opaque random pattern which gives an authentic stone appearance. The worktops can also be shaped into curves making them ideal for corner cabinets or island units.
Back in the bedroom, the new Kylie Minogue At Home Collection features a mixture of bold designs in single, double, king and super king sized quilt covers. This collection is available at House of Fraser, Debenhams, Fenwicks (selected stores) and Next Online. The stylish Astoria design is a combination of plush fabrics, bold prints and traditional lace imagery. Also check out the Erin design which demonstrates a contrast between soft gold satins and strong black detailing, resulting in pure elegance and sophistication.
