We all hanker after summer when Autumn first hits us.  It’s natural to fight the shivering urge to dig out those woolly jumpers and swap pretty sandals for practical winter boots…but there’s always a silver lining and the Team at GI are so excited to see the trends that Autumn is bringing..

If you like strong rich colours then you’ll love the A/W vibe this year! Striking midnight blues, indigos, deep reds and emerald greens bring luxury and warmth to the simplest of interiors, complemented beautifully by the soft and sophisticated grey palette that’s also currently working the scene.  But colour can only take you so far.. these stunning colours are bought to life by the wonderful textures that have come full circle: Velvet is officially back!  Not only does it work fabulously with A/W 16 colour theme but also brings indulgence and warmth on those chilly nights… (if like us you’re a velvet lover, you may want to check out our new Cushion range, offered in an array of beautiful colours!)….

When we’re talking atmosphere then there’s nothing more important than mood lighting and that doesn’t change with the Seasons. Whether a beautiful lamp is being used as the main centre piece or candles are lit to create the all essential ambience for a good party or intimate evening, this season you don’t need to worry so much about the elaborate candlesticks!  All you need are Candles with a twist…. a simple dinner candle in a striking colour can make quite a statement, especially if you’re brave enough to mix and match your colours then they’ll not only create the atmosphere you want but will also bring a sense of fun to the occasion!

So be brave, this Season is about colour and you can use it unashamedly!
