Cue The Comfort!
Transitional season. Like a grown-out hair cut or ‘on the brink’ milk, it’s the awkward in between that we just don’t know how to deal with. With wardrobe decisions proving all too difficult (turtleneck or flip flops), where do we begin with home décor? It’s time to rely on accessories to layer up your living space like a dressed-for-all-seasons outfit. Think cosy accessories, with a bright and breezy colour palette, cue the comfort people!
Let’s talk colour, because nothing brings us joy like a line-up of paint swatches on a wall (no, seriously). According to expert colour consultant at Farrow and Ball, Joa Studholme, ‘traditional neutrals provide an unsurpassed softness’, perfect for our cocoon of cosiness, no? Once your walls are washed in shades of ivory, your cream coated canvas is ready for a sprinkling of sophistication a.k.a. Primark Home’s dreamy accessories.
When picking your palette for cushions and throws, a simple selection allows for mix and match, so you can refresh your space on the daily (at €5/$7 a throw, it’d be rude not to). Pastel pinks complement the minimal aesthetic we’ve embraced this season, or bring cooler tones to the forefront, with concrete greys and pops of teal.
Gone are sweet evenings spent in the sunshine with pals, tucking into crunchy salads and sipping on all things fruity. Since the sun has nestled swiftly into the clouds, let’s do the same. When it comes to cushions, geometric prints and embroidered slogans are our go-to picks for accessorising this transitional season. Bring home a selection to dress your sofa for lazy day movie marathons, and snuggles with the squad (*cats).
So while we suffer through this treacherous time of waterproof wearing with sun cream in place, there’s one thing we can predict: our interiors are going to be looking fly. Position yourself on that sofa Primark squad, we can get through this together.
