We adjust our wardrobes with the change of season, so it makes sense to tweak our interiors, too. While warmer months signal a desire for brighter colours and the great outdoors, winter months herald hibernation, nesting at home under a sea of blankets and indulging in comfort food.
It’s easy to make a few small tweaks to your home in order to embrace a particular time of year - for example choose different textiles to suit the seasons: light and fresh linens for summer or luxurious velvets in winter. Swap linen scatters for silks and velvets and you’ll create an inviting space to wile away the chillier months.
A darker palette makes for a cosy ambience, while brights mirror what’s happening in nature when the sun shines. Roll out rugs in colder months and enjoy floorboards and bare feet in the summer. When daylight is in short supply, make the most of table lamps, candles and dimmer switches.
Set your table to reflect the time of year: our Bird Fynbos tablecloth will look wonderful in the springtime, while Leopard Lily in Frost from our Zambezi range will make any dining room a feast for the eyes when the nights draw in.
