Winter Warmers

If you love rich colour and detailed design Tate Britain’s current exhibition Pre-Raphaelites: Victorian Avant-Garde (until 13th January 2013) is a must. Widely encompassing the fine and decorative arts, the movement still exerts an influence today…

The paintings have inspired a trend for rich tones and textures in interiors fabrics this season. Soft, sumptuous velvets in a range of vibrant colours, and fabrics with lustrous finishes create a look of luxury and opulence, and add a touch of warmth and comfort at this time of year.

Wemyss Diva (right), is a range of luxurious and opulent crushed velvets in  25 colourways, and is suitable for curtains, bedspreads, upholstery and cushions.

Why not combine a trip to the exhibition with a visit to the Design Centre in Chelsea Harbour to seek out some of these gorgeous fabrics? For information on the Design Centre check out

All the fabrics and furnishings featured in this blog are available through Orchard House Interiors.
