Top tips from the Cornwall Rug Company to prepare for getting cosy on a Winter’s day.

As we prepare for the colder months ahead our focus inevitably turns to our homes. So, we ask the team at the Cornwall Rug Company for their top tips in interior trends this autumn and winter.

“… don’t hold back – be confident in your use of colour!”

“It’s all in the detail; little luxuries such as a sheepskin rug, a beautiful soft velvet cushion or an aromatic candle – little touches that bring comfort, warmth and glamour to our homes,” explains owner April. “In winter, we become bored by the lack of colour in nature. We need stimulation and by adding colourful soft furnishings and rugs you will brighten your home and boost your mood too! Colour even boosts the memory!”

As pioneers of colour, the expertly curated autumn/winter collection on display at the showroom in Wadebridge is a visual delight. Period pieces have been reworked into modern classics, tactile rugs entice our toes, a mouth-watering display of colourful cushions reward the eye. A treasure trove of handcrafted products skilfully made by artisans using techniques that are centuries old adorns the shelves. You’ll find just the thing to bring your home to life.

So why not add a bit of warmth to your home this winter? “We would love for you to visit,” says April. “My final tip this season is: don’t hold back – be confident in your use of colour!”
