Top up the Tan: Go Bold with Brown

As the seasons change and the temperature drops, nature provides us with a delicious palette of deep tans, conker browns, chestnut reds and creamy caramels. Use these naturally warm hues as inspiration for a seasonal interior update this winter and add some modern rustic style with furnishings and accessories in luxuriously rich shades.

Living Room

Natural tactile textures appeal to our senses and work wonders in providing real and psychological warmth. Look out for thick slubby linens, woven wool, shaggy sheepskin, butter soft leather and natural suede in rich shades of colour. Be generous with cushions and throws. A good mix of checks and stripes in shades of brown, deep russet and golden tan will add a sophisticated softness and warmth to a crisp contemporary style white linen sofa. Accessorise with sculptural vases and decorative bowls in woven straw and ethically produced materials that are striking in their design and great for displaying branches of winter foliage.

Bedroom

Blend soft tonal shades of tan and donkey brown with pinky beige, muted taupe and accessories in rich copper for a sumptuously bohemian and feminine feel. Pure wools and natural furs are practical and designed to be insulators of heat. Their soft tactile properties also appeal to our sense of touch and sight, so investing in a soft luxurious cashmere throw for the bed will not only keep you warm but make as a style statement too. Keep the look upbeat and on trend with accessories that take it beyond the world of nature in winter. Woven grass storage baskets work texturally and their ethnic influence adds a touch of global chic that prevents the look becoming too country cute. Source other items made from natural fibres such as coir, hemp or even felted wool rugs for rustic chic and additional warmth underfoot too!

Dining Room

For relaxed modern dining add pieces that make the table warm and welcoming, while taking inspiration from the shades of the autumn harvest. Drape natural sheepskins in dark colours over dining chairs for extra comfort and some instant chalet style chic. On the table, team rustic organic shaped hand thrown pottery in natural colours with ethnic pieces such as dark African inspired earthenware for an artisan, crafted feel. Invest in lots of wooden boards and use as platters for relaxed, informal suppers with friends – the rich honey tones of wood are ideal, and the knottier and more uneven the shapes the better. Source accessories in pale olive wood or dark acacia and team with woven grass placemats and natural linen textiles for a look that will carry you from autumn through winter and beyond!
