Everyone loves a little relaxation and comfort, so it makes sense to create home interiors that offer a cosy place to return to after a busy, stressful day. Warm colours are one way to help create a tranquil ambience, but tactile textures that demand to be touched are another design trend that’s big with everyone who loves casual cosiness.

Washed cotton is a wonderfully soothing fabric that can be both elegant and informal. Choose subtle neutral shades and layer up with a variety of other textures to create visual intrigue and tactile pleasure. Simple pinstripes and sophisticated tassels add further visual depth, ensuring that the textures lead the way when it comes to defining your room’s dominant style.

It’s a look that works well with natural wood furniture and well-loved accessories – anything that cries out to be looked at and touched.
