Soft landing: Setting the mood

When it comes to luxury textiles, Mark Alexander – a part of The Romo Group – has it down to a fine art. Here, the ‘Gramercy’ linen velvet range is captured in spectacular fashion. While the rich palette is brought to life with a lustrous sheen, the strié finish exudes quiet comfort. On sofa, cushion, or drape, this fabric is the very definition of pleasure.

Feet first

A rug is a must, not just for winter though. But during the colder months, it can make all the difference in bringing warmth, comfort and proportion to a room. Wondering how to pick the right rug for you? Read our guide, by clicking here. We love round rugs with interesting patterns, like this gorgeous creation from the masters at Roche Bobois.

Heavenly vessels

Whether you fill them with flowers and foliage, or simply let them take the spotlight on their own, a textured vase brings interest and gravity to any space. We love this proud vase from Zara Home.

Shuttered warmth

Nothing exudes warmth and comfort like shutters on windows. Yes, it helps protect your windows and home within from wind, debris (and can even add a layer of security), but more than just that - it looks and feels cosy, intimate and romantic.

Sitting pretty

With a textured, neutral sofa, a living room becomes the place to be on those chilly nights. This beautiful sofa from @Home begs for a long night of movies under a blanket.

Art’s content

A room becomes instantly cosier when the walls are filled with art in warm or striking tones. We love this bold design from Haus by Hertex.

Gather around

Winter nights call for wine, cooked food, and of course, your loved ones. Which makes this petite little table by La Grange Interiors ideal. We love how the material beautiful contrasts more textural pieces, for a balanced and considered look.
