Winter Trends


We step into the festive season with the return to old-world glamour as the golden age of decorating injects a touch of Deco drama into our homes. Revisiting the roaring twenties gives us a welcome design uplift and this time around it’s a homely take on glitz of the jazz age.

Winter is also a time for cocooning. We desire interiors that you feel wrapped up in. Wallow in warm snuggly textures, wow with the wonders of wool, walk around barefoot and curl up in sumptuous, curved sofas.  

Here’s the Alternative trend edit...

Deco Drama


Quirky Deco is like putting on your party frock, but this time dressing up your stairs. Divine Savages 

Jamie Watkins and Tom Kennedy reworked their iconic ‘Deco Martini’ for this eye-catching carpet runner. Inspired by the Jazz Age, Deco Martini print brings Art Deco opulence to your interior.

We say have fun and style up your staircase to make it the star attraction in your home.


Creature Comforts


Drama on the floor doesn’t better than Zebo, a jazzy animal print wool carpet, rug and runner that’s the height of chic.

It’s smart yet glamorous.

Black and white is one of this season’s most fashionable trends. A timeless chromatic duo, brilliantly worn at home.

Earthly Treasures


Designs and interior decoration that celebrates the natural world is a direction that will run and run and rightly so. The inherent beauty of natural materials from pure wool and natural fibres underfoot to grainy patinated wood all bring warmth and tactility to the surfaces in the home.  

Look out for wavy wood and as we banish straight-edged furniture in favour of more fluid crafted forms and softer textiles.

Colour Purple


Dulux forecast Bright Skies, a light and optimistic blue that’s good for the soul for 2022. But Pantone goes deeper with Purple as its colour of the year.

Very Peri is described by colour company Pantone as "a periwinkle shade of blue" and that this colour marries the "constancy" of traditional blue with the "energy and excitement" of red.

Very Peri brings “a novel perspective and vision of the trusted and beloved blue colour family,” said Leatrice Eiseman, executive director of Pantone Color Institute.

"Encompassing the qualities of the blues, yet at the same time possessing a violet-red undertone, Pantone Very Peri displays a spritely, joyous attitude and dynamic presence that encourages courageous creativity and imaginative expression."

Fashionistas also make a case for lilac as the new shade du jour, which is sort of a pale purple. Don’t forget opposites attract so what about orange as a beautiful contrast.

Whatever you choose to inject some mood boosting colours in your winter schemes.
