Natural Textures & Linen

Natural Textures and Linen Sitting Room

The movement towards natural textures and materials in the home is also about creating a welcome retreat from hectic, modern life. Whether it's bringing greenery indoors or experimenting with wood finishing, this trend works across many styles and homes- from rustic and tropical to airy and Scandanavian.

Ochre pairs beautifully with other natural textures and finishes, from warm woods to rough linens. Ochre can range in depth, from light creams too full-blown mustard shades and rich, deep yellows.

“The growth of natural fabrics such as linen reflects an ongoing shift towards sustainability. Linen is a versatile, durable material, with both cooling and warming qualities depending on the weather. This makes it a great choice for a comfy, stylish sofa all year round, and as an added bonus, its signature finish creates both visual and tactile texture in a space. With its soft beige and oatmeal shades, a linen sofa pairs up well with elements like indoor plants, rattan and wood for a tranquil, relaxed vibe in the home.”

Great Railway Journeys

of the World

If asked what makes a great railway journey, some will say the distance, some the countryside, some the scenery, while others will delight in the majestic locomotive that pulls the train, while for others it is the like-minded people they meet on the way. All these factors and more have a part to play in the journeys I have described below, which range from the legendary Venice Simplon-Orient-Express to the Palace on Wheels.
