ooof, I must admit, I find the transition from lazing on a sun-lounger in 29 degrees heat to heading home to boots, jeans and the school run a pretty tough pill to swallow and to top it all off, that sun tan that I worked so hard on, it’s under the cover of a polo neck, tragic!!
All is forgiven though when I finally accept the end of summer and start to embrace the cooler, darker evenings by lighting little candles and switching on pretty lights around the house.
That time of year to get all hyggelig and start to cocoon in our nests. This year I’ve seen a real shift to introducing natural textures to the home, materials that promote health and wellbeing.
I think there is a move in interiors towards making the home a real sanctuary from the busy lives that we lead, a shift towards green and kinder living and to personal wellness. I think we are craving being surrounded by natural materials which are calming and promote a slower pace when we relax at home in our personal retreat. So I’m seeing more rustic wood, natural linen and matte ceramics and natural grass basket-ware as the latest trend in interiors. I for one am embracing this, it’s my favourite style!
