CREATE A ROOM WITH WOW...
Stylist and instagrammer Eimear Varian-barry tells us why she’s fallen for Dunelm’s new Colonial Charm range
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.’
TALES OF THE ORIENT
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.’
