Nature provides the most magnificent array of colour and texture.
However these days, with our increased focus on work, housing, building infrastructure and our general lack of time, it can sometimes feel that nature and all that it provides us with has become somewhat invisible and neglected. In my styling and design, I am always inspired to add more and more texture. Pulling out and layering with different surfaces or colours found in a particular material or texture excites me, so this Autumn/Winter season I have taken this idea and curated three ranges inspired by textures found naturally formed in nature.
Our first collection is called ORGANICALLY, and within this story you’ll find a selection of natural woven textures and rustic organic timbers paired with a pop of those signature A&C colours of olive green and ochre. Part modern bohemian, part 1970s redux, this look is designed to create a serene sanctuary in your space, creating a stronger connection between the great outdoors and the places we call home.
When creating these collections, I thought a lot about how nature needs to be nurtured now more than ever. In the home, this can be as simple as embracing more long-lasting, timeless pieces rather than throw-away, trend-focussed items, and opting for more sustainable natural fibres and materials. I hope you'll join me in taking the time to appreciate and protect our natural environment before it's demolished, and make an effort to apply it within our homes.
