Hello Friends, visitors, passers-by and even greetings to those who never come here; we think of you all, often.
We have released our Autumn/Winter 2016/17 Pinterest board; HEATHLAND. This board will give you all the inspiration you need from interior style & tableware trends to christmas wrapping, stationery and festive decor.
This trend has a real enchanting mood as we begin to see unexpected encounters with nature being designed and created by architects, artists and designers worldwide. There is a subtle Wuthering Heights influence here which defines this trend’s overall look, it relates in part to the 200th anniversary of the Brontë sisters’ birth.
Glorious Heather Tones
This trend’s palette is a dramatic collection of rich colors, many of which have a gray cast. Black iris is beautifully tinged with purple as this year sees a play on contrast with darker and more intense color combinations. Deep purple hues, heather tones and lilac shades will be an important color family for this coming winter. Luscious plum reflects our passion for luxury, a respect for history and deep love for the complexity of the modern world. The evocative nature of this shade is enhanced by teal or indigo and looks dramatic alongside deep earthy greens, bracken browns and dense floral patterning. Pair these shades with muted lilacs or gray toned neutrals.
The palette reflects a growing desire for colors that project a luxurious richness, yet also have a strong connection to nature.
The Festive Look
This trend translate beautifully into a christmas look for this season. Touches of glamorous materials and luxury metallics work alongside the love of rustic and natural styling. There is an emphasis on the natural charm of the British countryside and a real, warm country house feel. Rustic handmade look tree decorations could include cable knit ornaments, tweed garlands and crocheted snowflake embellishments.
