THE BIG NEW TREND

We’re see­ing lots of in­tri­cately de­signed fab­rics and flashes of metal­lic on fur­ni­ture. The look is so­phis­ti­cated glam­our with in­dul­gent tex­tures com­ing from em­broi­dered em­bel­lish­ments, gold trims, smoked glass and a mix of bold and bright hues. Plush ac­ces­sories and tex­tiles will feel op­u­lent and com­fort­ing as win­ter ap­proaches and we start spend­ing more time in­doors and en­velop­ing our­selves in throws and blan­kets.

PER­SONAL FAVOURITE

The teal flo­ral print cush­ion that’s part of the Soho col­lec­tion from Fox & Ivy, Tesco’s new pre­mium home­wares brand. The colour is rich and the gold em­broi­dery will work well with other metallics in the room.

TOP TIPS

To dip your toe into this trend, in­tro­duce colour and tex­ture through soft fur­nish­ings. Ar­range a few state­ment cush­ions and a lux­u­ri­ous look­ing throw on your sofa to give the liv­ing room an in­stant up­date.

Pair metallics with bright hues and deep, rich blues and pur­ples for real wow fac­tor.

Use gold ac­ces­sories, such as vases, can­dle­hold­ers and vin­tage-style mir­rors, to add easy glam­our to your home and bring a sheen to darker spa­ces.
