Brighten up your Winter

Dark wet nights and cold frosty days, winter is well and truly here as we escape from work to home, to pull the curtains, light the fire then jump into our winter weight bedding.

Winter often result in deeper hues and thick bulky compositions.  It needn’t be all doom and gloom through these months though as we can brighten up our interiors with fabrics and accessories to give us a good dose of colour therapy.

Colour can be a powerful thing, it is steeped in psychology with colour specialists providing many theories on the benefits of each shade.  By tapping into the power of colour, especially over the winter months we can brighten our spaces and elevate our moods to feel just that touch more cheerful.

To help, we have picked out some colourful and energising fabrics to share, ideas for brightening up your interior spaces whether that be through your cushions, curtains, or bedding:

ABUNDANCE – Upon looking at this print you are immediately uplifted to sunnier times.   Available in a curtain or medium upholstery fabric, Abundance is sure to bring the summer vibes into any space.  Even a cushion or two will really make a pop.
