As the nights draw in, temperatures drop and evenings cosied up indoors in our warm winter woollies approach (large glass of red optional) we begin to think about updating our winter wardrobe. Perhaps this could also be a time when you may start to think about refreshing your interior spaces for those long nights ahead with some new tactile snugly throws and cushions or some scented candles or you may even have a desire to completely change the look of your space altogether now that summer is over and you'll be spending a lot more time indoors. In this blog I’ll be looking at one of the key looks and colours launched this season in interiors, the peacock palate which may give you a bit of colour inspiration along the way...
Interior collections Autumn/Winter '15 took inspiration from the fashion catwalks with a revival of both retro patterns and cocktail glamour and stunning colour palates of deep jewel tones, beautiful petrol blues and a peacock inspired palate. There has also been a move towards a more glamorous and luxurious look from the key retailers releasing collections of gold furniture, accessories and lighting with a distinct art deco influence. Tactile fabrics and prints with damask and crushed velvets are prevalent and the paint companies have also released these deep tones in their latest paint and wallpaper collections which will set the scene for a modern eclectic look.
Create the Look
This look is super stylish and glamorous but perhaps in its entirety is not for everyone. If you would like to recreate this opulent look but your budget is tight, paint is the most cost effective way to completely change the atmosphere of your room and you can then accessorize with cushions, vases and table ornaments and check out some of the clever Ikea hacks on Pinterest to create brass furniture with a similar look but at a fraction of the price. These beautiful deep tones would also look fantastic in soft furnishings paired against a neutral palate of grey and black furniture or with pale grey or white walls if the thought of painting your walls in these rich colours is a little too much for you.
Blended with Neutrals
Below are some items currently available on the market if you'd like to bring a bit of Peacock styled glamour into your life. You can also check out my Pinterest Board below for more colour inspiration.
Bye for now,
