Subtly warm yet elegantly pale, our new Vintage Blush collection is all about how to chill, without being chilly. Sometimes a neutral palette can look too formal or cold – but by adding a hint of blush with rose and copper hues, it can be transformed into something warm and elegant. Add to this the natural beauty of distressed wood and vintage-styled fabrics and accessories, and the end result is one of understated decadence.
Rustic wood has played a big part in interior trends for some time now and is certainly here to stay. The beautiful Wimborne Dining Table made from elm makes for an eye-catching centrepiece. The ridges and knots left in each piece of wood give the table real character, and this natural-finish will only get better with age.
If combined with metal dining chairs, the Wimborne could look edgy and industrial, but by paring it with the beautifully plush Annely Dining Chairs, something much softer and rustic is created. Upholstered with violet-coloured velvet fabric, the chairs have great visual appeal while being incredibly comfortable – a key feature of this collection.
Add warmth to bare floorboards with a large rug, this Bolshoi Rug in soft pink tones is a favourite. Woven on Jacquard Wilton looms in a combination of wool and cotton chenille, the patchwork design has a nostalgic charm and gently worn, antique look.
The Enmore Chair, sitting in the corner of the main picture, adds a touch of grandeur thanks to its pink velvet finish and beautifully turned legs. Its enduring sense of style is something key to this collection.
What’s great about adding a vintage vibe is that you don’t have to redecorate or buy everything new; family heirlooms and antiques will sit comfortable alongside more contemporary furniture for a personalised, eclectic feel.
Continuing the distressed wood theme is the Hunston Grand Bookcase – a contemporary twist on the traditional country dresser. Its four doors underneath provide ample storage space, and the shelves are perfect for displaying tableware, books and accessories.
Accessorise with a few keynote pieces like these Munro Votive Holders. The beautiful peach blush of the ribbed glass gives off a warm glow from the flickering candlelight inside, perfect for a dinner party setting. The Munro Glass Ceiling Pendant provides a soft glow and is a great choice for providing continuity to your lighting scheme.
The copper trend is still going strong, but with a warmer, rose-tinted edge. Add this into the scheme with the eye-catching Gold Dimpled Table Lamp – also made from glass. Its metallic sheen and sculpted base fit perfectly with the understated luxury of the Vintage Blush collection.
