Go Natural..

Do you want to create a space without feeling like you've transformed your home into a bohemian temple? A great approach is the use of lineal and structured lines, softened with earthy tones and textures. Soften your space with unrefined and supple tan leather, flat woven neutral rugs, textured cushions and inject some earthy materials like terracotta in accessories. This will help you achieve a space with sense of warmth but keep your space feeling light and airy.

Layer-it-up!

The most effective way to develop texture and warmth into your home during winter is by layering your rugs. The use of a jute with a kilim rug is a perfect example. The thick, robust and natural texture of a jute in contrast with a flat woven kilim will help you achieve a warm and inviting space. This works perfectly in a bedroom or living room.

Add decadent textiles.

It's quite rare when you come across a piece which is both 'on trend' and 'effortlessly timeless'. It is the perfect time to inject some decadent velvet into your living space for autumn and winter. The colour blue is one of our top two favourite hues to use as an interior designer. The power-duo of blue + velvet is perfect to create warmth within a space. Embracing a deeper blue velvet sofa is a sexy intersection of masculine and feminine and the versatility works brilliantly in most homes. Keep it luxe by adding cosy textured rugs, throws and accent with dainty brass pieces.

Organic form and earthy hues

Earth tones are often mistaken for miserably boring but it can particularly make your space pop during autumn and winter. Appreciation of handmade ceramics is a passion at The Salted Chair. We often find that beautiful pieces made by ceramic artists resonate with our interior, adding depth as well as texture, shape and a warm moodiness especially during the colder months.

Texture! Texture! Texture!

Yes, the weather is cooler but this doesn't mean you need to restrict yourself from your household plants and flowers. Here at The Salted Chair we always love adding texture with green and why not add dried flowers and crunchy green foliage? This will keep your space feeling light but will also give you the warmer hues to keep your home feeling warm and cosy.
