Walk into a winter wonderland in the comfort and warmth of your own home with our shiny new AW15 edit: Luminescent.
Inspired by a sparkling wintry scene, our love for just-fallen, crisp and glistening snow is captured by silvered and chrome furnishings. Crystal clear icicles and glittering frost are reflected by mirrored surfaces, glass pieces and high-gloss finishes, transforming your room into an elegant, sophisticated space.
It’s all about bringing the great outdoors inside with rooms that are minimal, uncluttered and clean. Nature is introduced into the home with cosy cushions in marbled prints and flower motifs, while woodland trees decorate curtains.
Choose earthy colours and a neutral palette to create the most relaxing, tranquil environment, or cover the walls in leaf patterned paper to really take things back to its natural state. Complement the look with the Silvestry frosted tree curtains and the rumba rug in duck egg.
What would winter be without sumptuously-soft and warm faux fur? Place sheepskin rugs over floors in snowy white or cool blue, and layer faux fur cushions on sofas in smoky grey with a husky throw spread across seating.
For furniture, choose contemporary and sleek designs for a modern look. The Porto range is available in simple, high-shine white that works beautifully with the Monza collection of chrome and glass tables for an industrial twist to the au naturel theme.
Recline in style with the Zenna Corner Chaise in a chalky charcoal cover that works an asymmetric style, or choose snow-like and sumptuous leather settees like the Harlow seating, also available in grey, that brings extravagance and opulence to your icy palace.
Architectural designs feature to vases, lamps and ornaments in diamond, pyramid and octagon shapes. Go geometric with the Santa Barbara table lamp that has a ceramic teardrop base, or this fun zig zag light.
Subtly sprinkle glistening accessories around the room with embellished sequined cushions and luminescent lighting.
The Gatsby hanging pendant or the crackle glass light balls are perfect for setting the mood, giving off a gentle gleam in varying shades and flecks. For full impact, this Sputnik Cosmic ceiling light is influenced by iridescent, falling snowflakes and twinkling icicles.
Mirrored furniture makes your bedroom appear larger and more spacious. The Monte Carlo or Prague range of cabinets, drawers and dressing tables create a glamorous glacier look. Co-ordinate the silvered furnishings with this Alsager bed frame that features a padded, tufted headboard in grey, with a cool contemporary shape.
Dinnerware also get an abstract update, try the Typoon Imprima collection of embossed crockery, canisters and jars in a honeycomb design with a white glossy glaze. Go matchy-matchy with your kitchen appliances, like this DeLonghu Brilliante toaster with a retro look, but modern diamond finish, and the co-rodinating quirky kettle.
Continue the chrome style into the kitchen with the Atlantic chairs and dining tables. The stainless steel look carries the industrial theme through, while plush faux leather padding to the seats make this dining set truly comfortable.
