With Halloween and Bonfire Night around the corner we show you how to make the best of the cold weather and shorter days by creating a seasonal look in your home.
For those that want something truly different...
Artist Sarah Jane Palmer creates patterns which reveal the unexpected on a closer look. We took inspiration from Sarah, creating a surreal take on the season by keeping to a monochrome palette and adding unusual objects to create an eye-catching look where everything is not as it seems.
Think differently and raid the toy cupboard to find objects for your display- here we used a Darth Vader mask and plastic skull. A vintage chemical bottle and hand made pottery adds depth and interest to the scheme. We kept colour to a minimum and added a pop of colour with the eyeball lights. Using objects which share similar textures unites the scheme and creates a feeling of continuity.
This look is perfect to create a cosy maximalist look on dark cold nights.
Against a backdrop of blacks and golds we used an autumnal palette of oranges, yellows and greens taking our inspiration from nature. Seasonal fruit such as quinces, ornamental squashes and apples bring the outside in and are softened with trailing ivy. Metallic glazed vases contrast with the weathered stone bowl creating textural interest, while the soft glow of candlelight warms the scene and reflects on the golds in the wallpaper and accessories.
