A few weeks back, I showcased the colour trends that are big in Autumn decorating for 2016. In this post, we're taking a look at the textures, patterns and scents you can rock in your home now that the weather is getting cooler (and Lordy am I elated that summer has come to an end!).
Nothing gives me pangs of joy and rapture more than discovering a new homewares brand. When that brand is Aussie, when its products are packed with colour, and when the creator is a Melbournian, my happiness level reaches fever-pitch.
Interior design trends 2016; they're landing hard and fast, and now is the time when we decide if we get on board with them or not. Over the past week on the blog, TLC has predicted three big trends to land in 2016, and today the last one, Colour Carnevale, is making its presence known.This is definitely one for the colour lovers, so let's explore it further.

As I got closer to the stall and realised that they’d paired the pillowcases with a diamond-print flat sheet and equally stunning quilt, I wanted to run in slow motion toward the bed like a scene from a movie, dive in and declare it ‘the one’.
African design has been popular on and off for years now, but most incarnations of it have featured a colour story of blacks, beiges, whites and the occasional pop of burnt orange. Mix in a few animal prints, some leather and a splash of brass and you have a gorgeous - albeit subdued - African interior scheme (take a look at an example here).
