Mix­ing dark colours in vary­ing shades cre­ates a re­lax­ing – even sleep-in­duc­ing – mood.

Choose from the spec­trum of real greens with fresh whites, light wood tones and pale earth colours.

Frame a hand­writ­ten note or spe­cial mes­sage to per­son­alise your space. Go for warm fab­rics such as cor­duroy and vel­vet.

Dress chairs with throws to add some warmth and tex­ture.

Raised bob­bles on the cush­ion ref­er­ence the tex­tured vase nearby.

Go for art with large-scale plant mo­tifs or pat­terns.

Place leaf cut­tings on the pin­board for an in­stant pop. We love the tape, too!

A cork table­top has lots of tex­ture and feels warm – just add fronds.
