We can just feel the winter winds nipping at our heels! I always look forward to Winter arriving - the colours of winter, clothing, food, nesting at home. For me, I come alive in Winter, I feel great - energised!
It also means it's time for some beautiful new ranges to add to Black Thread. Colourwise, we are still seeing pinks and blush tones featuring very strongly - these colours look fabulous with copper, neutral through to chocolate. Yes! Chocolate and shades of neutrals through to tan and brown is back!!
Buzz terms include 'layering' and ''texture'.
Velvet is still a strong texture in design, so I have added a couple of new colours in the Classic Velvet range. These are ideal sizes to add some luxe to your lounge or bed.
Pair velvet perfectly with some stunning wool textiles in larger cushions. Textures are manipulated with some hand stitching - a very individual artisan look. I have loved working with some traditional embroidery ideas, looking to push this tradition to a modern interpretation. A satisfying result.
Photography is to be done yet, but check out some of the Hip to be Square cushions for an idea to start. Keep and eye on Instagram for my happy snaps during the making of these cushions. blackthreadau
Hope you love them! Getting nesting, ready for the cold wonderful days of Winter ahead!
