This autumn the fashion we see is all about colours and textures.

Fashionistas stroll down the streets dressed in lilacs top to toe, and when it comes to embracing colour, our interiors should not be an exception. As we move towards colder temperatures, we tend to change our colour palettes to darker hues, maybe it's something biological? We follow the sun's behaviour. However, our homes should be the place that shines despite the autumn darkness.

The - now classic - Hermès Avalon blanket has become an iconic interior piece since it first launched in 1988. With its timeless design and statement logo print it adds a luxurious touch that we all want in our homes, not to mention that the French fashion house sure knows how to produce sumptuous quality products. In recent years the Avalon has been accompanied by some great statement pieces including designs from the Danish textile and fabric brand Tekla. Tekla and Marimekko have become pioneers for more daring interior designs in Scandinavian homes.
