Gone are the long light nights and in roll the short days and rainy afternoons. It’s time to prepare for winter and get your home looking hibernation ready as we enter Autumn/Winter 2018. Here at Grove House, we like to create a home that you can invest in, that is both timeless and bespoke. We want to help you get the most out of this year’s Autumn/ Winter trends, by inspiring you to incorporate colour and accessories within your home.
Sustainability is vastly becoming an important part of today’s society, preserving what we have around us and close to us. We are starting to bring a sense of honesty and durability into the home, creating a timeless atmosphere in which we live, by incorporating neutral colours and honest materials. Natural stone, timber, hessian and muted greys, all blend together to give the home a natural yet timeless and cosy feel for the cold months ahead.
Blue has always been a staple colour, but now we are noticing that Navy and other variations of deep Blue are making their way into the home this winter. Versatile and timeless, a bold blue will create and elegant statement whilst drawing the eye and creating a moody yet comforting setting. Our go to paint choice is Drawing Room Blue fromFarrow and Ball, for a dark statement unit or wall. Or why not spice up a cosy living room by incorporating a single navy arm chair.
An indoor oasis can be our refugee from the outside world, as the leaves turn orange and the trees begin to hibernate it’s a beneficial, as well as trendy idea, to bring nature inside as we begin to move our lives indoors in preparation and comfort during the colder months. House plants have proven to benefit our lives in many ways; by cleaning and detoxifying the air, house plants can make a positive impact on our overall health throughout winter. Studies have also shown that having house plants, helps to improve our mental health, seeing greenery and being around nature can help us to feel relaxed and calm. So not only are they aesthetic and on trend, they are scientifically proven to improve our home lives to.
Statement interiors are the trend of the season, big pendant light fixtures and mixed textured splash backs will ensure that parts of your home really pop. At Grove House, we have created bespoke kitchens that mix statement with sustainable, using brass or copper elements (such as handles) within the home to create a unique and on trend aesthetic, whilst remaining timeless and elegant. Yellow tones are perfect for Autumn/Winter; a transitional colour that it warm and timeless. Create a statement wall with India Yellow from Farrow and ball, and incorporate with grey print statement tiles, as well as chunky knit throws.
