Bring texture and warmth to your home with natural hued ceramics, coarsely woven fabrics, handcrafted wooden bowls and seasonal foliage.
There’s nothing more deeply rooted in country traditions than the warm tones of autumn. Rich and mellow these are the colour of wood, sleek conker brown, polished leather, shades of an old brick chimney breast and coppery pink of terracotta tiles. Their simple quality makes this palette easy to use, perfect for country kitchens, dining rooms and rooms adjoining the garden where the colours and textures create a natural link between inside and outside. You can incorporate cooler materials such as stone and slate with rough plaster walls glazed ceramics and basket ware. Choose heavy linen fabrics or textured plains to make curtains and chair covers. Accessorise with old bottles, crates, wooden bowls filled with pine cones and a combination of pottery jugs and vases with dried hops and fresh hedgerow cuttings.
