Shades of Autumn
Abode’s resident interior designer, Sarah Eaton, considers how the addition of rich, colourful textures can bring life and warmth to you decor.
In Canterbury, the seasons have distinct and colourful personalities. We see this illustrated perfectly in the stunning displays of autumn colour that Hagley Park treats us to every year.
As we transition into the new season and temperatures begin to drop, we tend to focus on the indoors once more. We can reflect this change in our homes with the introduction of decorative elements that bring warmth and life to a space.
Fabric houses internationally are constantly creating beautiful new textiles and I like to keep up with the newly released ranges as they are launched. Recently, quality textile supplier Seneca released a series of fabulous new collections. These include the Modena range from Mark Alexander (pictured) which incorporates, “...deep teals, indigos, and rich reds adding depth to a core palette of neutrals”. The range is full of lush textures and the colours are divine.
Fabrics and soft furnishings (cushions, throws, bedding) are a very effective way to enhance and develop your interior without having to make any structural changes. Layered skilfully, these elements can bring depth and add impact. When collecting items for your home, look for ways to balance your colour palette such as tempering the traditional autumn shades of rust and gold with the cooler blues and greens.
For a gorgeous range of cushions in an array of colours and patterns, Seneca supplies the Elitis range of accessories from France. They come with plump feather inners, making them a sumptuous addition to your interior and the perfect way to add comfort and luxury for the cooler months.
