Local bonfire and firework displays bring design inspiration


It's that time of year when the weather changes, the nights draw in and our attention turns from the garden to indoors.

The change in season often depicts the way we feel about our home and the mood we want to create in a room. For me, it becomes important that the living room is warm and cosy and this is easily achieved using the rich hues from nature that are all around us at this time of year.

Looking out of the window as I type my eye is drawn to the rich colours in the leaves as they fall from the trees. These same colours burst from the page in the the picture of the bonfire and fireworks that my 6 year old has brought home from school. The picture itself could act as a mood board, depicting rich reds, oranges and golds.


When you're considering revamping or updating your room, it's always a good idea to create a mood board. Include everything that you like and dream about having in your design project, from your favourite colours, fabrics, wallpaper to floor finishes and furniture.

This year when you're stood glass of mulled wine in hand, looking up at the autumn colours exploding overhead at your local bonfire and firework display be prepared to be inspired to bring those colours indoors.
