Terrace Floors + Furnishings give us the lowdown on how to get our space looking and feeling cosy this season.
Muted tones and plenty of texture make for warm and inviting interiors as the cooler weather hits. Here are just some of the pieces you can find at Terrace Floors + Furnishings’ Eastwood showroom to help you achieve the ultimate cosy vibes.
Combine Warmth and Texture
The sky may be grey, but it’s all about the rebirth of warm colour palettes this season. Think warm whites, soothing taupes, and rich, earthy tones.
Pair earthy colours with layers of richly textured fabrics to add another dimension to your home. The use of complex textures and a multitude of materials in any room adds both a visual and physical warmth to the space.
The Armadillo Winnow rug, shown here, offers the perfect level of tactility and softness with its crosshatch weave and thick wool pile, while the L&M Home Palermo Rectangle Cushion (see Steal the Style below) will add another layer of comfort to your sofa or bed. Woven on a traditional handloom in the finest European linen, the handmade nature of this textured design means each piece is totally unique.
Mix Old with New
From the resurgence of fully curved sofas to more subtle details like rounded or sloped chair arms, chair backs, and tables, rounded shapes soften a space and create flow. The Ethnicraft Barrow Lounge Chair is a perfect example of this. It’s the time of year to cosy up with a good book, so pick one off the bookshelf and sink into this beautifully comfy, vintage-style chair inspired by the 50s. Add the GlobeWest Axel Bench Seat (see below) with its rounded bolster pillows for a contemporary – and even comfier – look and feel to your home.
Black is back
The easiest way to play with modern pieces and to make statement pieces pop is by adding a black accent piece to your space. For example, the Ethnicraft Black Bok Side Table (left) allows you to start small, and it works well in compact spaces which can easily be overwhelmed by too much black. The Ethnicraft Blackbird Sideboard is another great addition as it’s sleek oak and black finish can easily adapt to a range of interior styles, from modern to mid-century. Try teaming it with the GlobeWest Lorne Canopy lamp to bring even more cosy warmth and a soft glow to your interior.
Terrace Floors + Furnishings’ tip is to invest in a single piece of black furniture and decide how you like it before you add more black to your home decor. If you love the look, you can add a single black accent piece to every room in your house — the colour will become a thread that ties all your rooms together. And because black is a neutral, it pairs well with a variety of colour schemes, particularly alongside neutrals like olive green, taupe and other earthy colours.
