As décor gurus prepare to update their spaces for wintertime, it’s officially time to introduce the warm, rich look of textiles into your home. Whether you’re aiming to rejuvenate an unadorned living room or introduce exotic finishes into a preppy bedroom, textiles can bring an entirely new element to your humble urban abode. Here are our favourite ways to embrace the décor trend, just in time for holiday entertaining in the weeks ahead.
Bring comfort into your home office with a patterned fabric chair: If you’re aiming to transform your study or home office into a cozy area, a luxurious upholstered chair just may do the trick. Look for quirky abstract patterns or woven stripes for an immediate home décor refresh, without having to splurge on an entire room makeover.
Try decorating with a textile rug in inviting shades of ruby and tangerine: Whether you’re craving a welcoming finish in your den or an eye-catching effect in your living room, a statement textile rug can breathe new life into any space. For a bold colour scheme, decorate your beige sofa with striking accent pillows in a fiery colour scheme. Stay true to your new décor statement by including a patterned rug in red, orange and navy blue tones for a late autumn/early winter colour palette which is sure to impress.

Use a textile throw blanket to redecorate a neutral chair: Perhaps it was a secondhand score from a garage sale last season or simply an antique which has been in your family for generations. Either way, that dated neutral chair in the corner of the room is in need of a serious seasonal upgrade! Try embracing Fall/Winter 2015’s vivid textiles with a woven throw blanket in soft tangerine and white shades. The contrast of a dull neutral and a brightly patterned textile throw can instantly revamp any room.
Create contrast with bright textiles and darker furnishings: For a sophisticated and minimalist approach to the trend, turn to vibrant textiles for a cool juxtaposition against that black leather sofa, cherry coffee table and polished hardwood flooring. Look for flowing textile curtains in shades of brilliant blue, or add accent pillows in an array of rainbow hues to inject colour into your dark, modest space.
