More is more this Winter

As we start to spend more and more time in our Chigwell, Loughton or Woodford homes our interiors take on a new importance. This autumn embellishment of our lovely homes is key. This means you can indulge in the trimmings; tassels and fringing that are springing up on smaller accessories such as lamps, as well as sofas and chairs. Many say this maximalism trend is not going anywhere. 

At the simplest smarter end of embellishment opportunities for your Chigwell home, you might want to take a look at  Samuel & Sons who have three new collections of handmade borders and trims that can be added to furniture, cushions or curtains, including one with bold Mexican motifs that Frida Kahlo look is still going strong. For the less crafty The Telegraph interiors editors say ready-fringed seats can be found at Soho HomeHouse of Hackney and Graham & GreenRockett St George has plenty of fringed lampshades, and embellished cushions are at H&M and Habitat.

We love a floral pattern and again The Telegraph interiors say “Floral patterns never really went away, but they’re now bigger and bolder. House of Hackney is one of the brands responsible for bringing back botanical prints, and its latest designs are splashed over (fringed) sofas, chairs and chaises longues, as well as cushions, fabrics and wallpapers. Anthropologie’s new collection gives the floral country-house look a modern update, with patterns in pink, mustard, greens and blues, on chairs and sofas, bed linen, rugs and some very pretty tableware. Sofa Workshop has taken prints from the V&A’s archive to use on sofas, armchairs and footstools (out next week), while fashion favourite Matilda Goad has teamed up with Liberty for a new version of her scalloped raffia lampshades, lined with ditzy prints.”

It really is the time of year in Chigwell, Loughton and Woodford to bring your garden indoors and embellish your living space with florals either on the walls botanical wallpaper or a mural or simply moody floral cushion.
