That’s it. Winter is definitely here. That balmy Summer has long gone and as I write this, today is the worst weather we’ve seen in a while. However the cold and damp does really make us appreciate our home comforts…fires lit, Winter stew in the oven, socks on, oh yes these dark days can feel pretty good if our homes are cosy.
I definitely lean towards the less is more approach when it comes to interiors and colour-wise it’s still the greys, whites and taupes that I favour. I find they provide a good base layer, where warm, rich shades can be thrown in on top. However lately I’m more and more drawn to these luxurious colours, questioning if they could provide the perfect base-layer?! Maybe it’s the time of year, after all they do provide a real pick-me-up. Combined with this, there’s some seriously gorgeous interior inspo on Instagram and Pinterest lately, where the sassy deep greens, burnt oranges and dark blues offer real eye-candy. They draw you in and take hold, making you question everything.
