Stylist and in­sta­gram­mer Eimear Var­ian-barry tells us why she’s fallen for Dunelm’s new Colo­nial Charm range

Ideal Home (UK) - - Real Home -

What an amaz­ing room for a din­ner party!’ en­thuses Eimear Var­ian-barry about this stun­ning dining room, de­signed with fur­ni­ture and ac­ces­sories from Dunelm’s new Colo­nial Charm range and styled with Eimear’s en­vi­able eye for de­tail. ‘The warm walnut fur­ni­ture against the teal walls is a match made in heaven and the beau­ti­ful glass­ware is per­fect for adding a touch of glam­our to the scheme.’


Part of Dunelm’s Au­tumn/win­ter col­lec­tion, the Colo­nial Charm range has a dis­tinct ex­otic flavour with a rich palette of teal, peacock blues and gold highlights, com­bined with sump­tu­ous tex­tiles, walnut-ef­fect fur­ni­ture and brushed brass touches. ‘There are also some won­der­ful Art Deco-in­spired pieces in­clud­ing the gold-stemmed wine glasses which I just love,’ says Eimear. ‘My style is all about adding glam touches so I’ll def­i­nitely be get­ting th­ese for my own home.’


With its rich, warm colours and cosy tex­tiles, the Colo­nial Charm range is per­fect for cre­at­ing an equally cos­set­ting and eye-catch­ing scheme in a liv­ing room as well as a dining room. ‘I def­i­nitely think peo­ple are get­ting braver with dec­o­rat­ing their homes,’ says Eimear. ‘Colour is back – I’m see­ing a lot of blues and greens – and there’s a real trend for bring­ing the out­side in, such as sprigs of eu­ca­lyp­tus which are a great way to dec­o­rate a man­tel­piece and ta­ble.’


Dunelm’s Au­tumn/win­ter col­lec­tion has some­thing to suit ev­ery­one, with ranges from the op­u­lent Colo­nial Charm to the cosy Keeper’s Lodge – and all at great prices. Visit now to cre­ate your own state­ment style...
