It’s right about now when everyone starts to think about autumn. The nights get colder and darker, the fire becomes a daily necessity and all you want, is to hide under the duvet. Your wardrobe starts to transition into turtle neck jumpers, wool coats and over the knee boats and you want a hygge inspired home to match. Autumn is all about cosy nights in with a chunky throw, delicious candles and colourful cushions (not to mention a warm glass of mulled wine).
Last Friday I had the pleasure of attending Macclesfield based furniture store Arighi Bianchi during their Home Edit Event, with fellow bloggers. The store is an absolute treasure trove of luxury furnishings and the ideal place to gain home decor inspiration, peruse handmade rugs, try out the comfiest of chairs and mull over your purchases in the fabulous onsite Cafe Bar (make sure you book in advance!). And don’t forget to pick up a trinket or two in the unique gift shop or select a gorgeous bunch of flowers from The Flower House.
The company has been around for 163 years so they know what they’re talking about when it comes to home furnishings and luxury, bespoke interior design and the customer service is second to none. Take a look below at the autumn winter 2017 interior design trends and shop my favourite pieces.
Monochrome statement pieces add excitement and intrigue to dull walls and are great conversation starters. Style out modern art with unique vintage furniture such as minimalist bookcases or intricate coffee tables.
Who said you can’t express your sense of style and flair through colourful interiors? Take a leaf out of Matthew Williamson’s book with this eclectic collection of vibrant cushions, retro sofas and structured ornaments.
Everyone needs a giant chessboard and a Marilyn Monroe print don’t they?
Go all out with fascinating, mismatched pieces and colours that evoke a warm environment, even if it’s freezing outside!
Visit the gift shop to pick up some perfect items to accessorise for autumn, such as minimalist photo frames, calming candles and reed diffusers to create the perfect space to relax.
Take home a gorgeous terrarium or colourful bouquet and even learn how to flower arrange for special occasions such as weddings, with the onsite florist.
Finish off with a hearty salad and warm crusty bread in the Cafe Bar, but save some room for the amazing cakes!
