Home accessories such as cushions, throws and towels are a great way to add a splash of colour and texture into your home. Cushions in particular are the perfect way to compliment your room's colour scheme by either coordinating with your chosen colour palette, or providing a bold contrast colour that creates a strong focal point.
Cushions are also a great way to add texture to a room, with a wide variety of fabrics available including crushed velvet, matte velvet, faux fur, chenille and cotton. Our crushed velvet cushions are particularly popular with our customers as they are incredibly soft and offer a subtle shimmer as the fabric reflects the light. Velvet cushions really come alive when paired with matching velvet curtains. Bed cushions are also extremely popular, in particular boudoir cushions which can be placed on a bed to create a statement look. Boudoir cushions are small rectangular cushions which come in a wide variety of colours and fabrics, including velvet and satin. Boudoir cushions are often embellished with sequins or embroidery to create a more glamorous look.
Throws are another great way of adding colour and texture to a room, whilst also being super practical, proving a cost effective way to keep warm without reaching for the thermostat! Throws also come in a wide range of sizes, colours and fabrics. Large throws are great for layering up over a stylish duvet set or sofa whilst smaller throws can be used as accent pieces, draped over an armchair or folded neatly and stacked
Here at Julian Charles we have a wide range of throws including bed throws, crushed velvet throws, chenille throws, fleece throws and faux fur throws. We believe there is nothing better than curling up under a large soft throw during the colder months, with a hot drink in hand!
Bathrooms can be relatively plain, often consisting of white tiles and next to no other colours. Some bold colourful towels and some beautiful green foliage can transform a bathroom at very little cost. With a wide range of colours available, the possibilities are endless. We particularly love bold ochre towels which also pair beautifully with rich teal towels. For a cleaner contemporary look, white or grey towels definitely do the job. As well as providing colour, towels are obviously practical! Our super absorbent cotton towels are the perfect way to dry off after bathing or showering, with the beautifully soft cotton feeling more like a big comforting hug!
Home fragrance has seen a huge rise in popularity in recent years, with candles and diffusers providing the main options. People have become more aware of the importance of scent in their design schemes. Bathrooms and kitchens suit themselves to fresher floral and citrus fragrances, whilst living rooms and bedrooms with a wider range of soft furnishing lend themselves well to richer and deeper fragrances.
The kitchen is the heart of the home, where we whip up gastro delights, share mealtimes with our loved ones and raid the fridge whenever we’re peckish! It’s important not to neglect our kitchens, and show them a bit of love with some nice accessories. From patterned dining plates to colourful soft furnishings such as seat pads, oven gloves and tea towels, it’s easy and cheap to inject some colour and personality into your kitchen.
