Here are a few simple styling tips for updating your florals this winter…

Look to the dark side

For a fresh take on floral, why not switch things up? Hand drawn and conveniently reversible, our printed Ivona bed references the lush native flora of the Mornington Peninsula, depicting oversized proteas in delicate tonal rendering. Choose from a charming grey floral replicated on a crisp white base or flip for a striking light floral on a deep charcoal ground. To create a cosy winter mood, opt for a darker palette and feature the reverse artwork with its textural grey tones and intricate details.

Snuggle up with seasonal extras

Add richly textured accessories to your seasonal florals for a boost of winter warmth. Raw, natural textures of fine linen, hand-spun wool, Italian leather and the fluffiest Mongolian lambswool lend a luxurious feel to any bedroom setting. Stick to a palette of sleek neutrals with the Alena Breakfast Cushion and Linen Throw in deepest carbon, or inject a pop of sensuous colour with the hand-worked Kemerton Throw in decadent Plum.

Embrace a shade darker

Create a sumptuous winter setting by grounding lighter florals with richer, darker tones. Layer your base with crisp sheeting in a palette of sleek Carbon or rich Midnight Navy for an instant cool-weather update. Try the hand painted orchids of the Landra Quilt Cover paired with the Soft Sateen Sheet Set in darkest Midnight. Or opt for Beadmore, a rich heavier-weight Matelassé weave styled with Hotel Weight Luxury sheeting in Charcoal.
