Adding Warmth to Your Home this Season with Tartan

Posted by Mark Godsell-Fletcher on

The temperature is starting to lower and many of us have succumbed to lighting our fires or switching on the heating. We are certainly in Autumn/Winter. Every season we see new trends emerging and this season we are channeling our inner Scot and indulging in tartan. Tartan has a real warm feeling which is perfect for this season.  It also works well with all styles of home, but really comes into its own in rustic and country settings.  Using such a bold pattern in your home is nothing to shy away from.  We have found some wonderful tartan furnishings to add some wonderful warmth to your home this season. Soft Furnishings From rich wools to snuggly fleece, tartan works on a variety of textiles and perfect to cozy up to this autumn.  Adding a touch of rustic charm, with a maroon paid design based on a traditional pattern, these cushions from Made feature an intricate blend of colours.
