Warming up the home

The nights are drawing in here in the Northern hemisphere, and temperatures are taking a downward turn.
Do you like to add texture and comfort to signal warmth?

1) Anta
2) Oka direct
3) Not on the High Street
4) via Furnish

...or do you prefer to signal the changing seasons with richer, more autumnal colours?

1) House of Fraser
2) Apartment Therapy
3) Harlequin
4) House to Home

Much as I love the idea of changing my interiors even few months, in reality it's just not that practical, but even I might be tempted by the odd throw...

Random hotel room of the week

I was lucky enough to be whisked away for a night at the Feathers Hotel in Woodstock last week. This is a higgledy-piggledy olde-worlde sort of building that apparently has been everything from a row of cottages, to a butcher's shop to a sanatorium for those recovering from tuberculosis until it was knocked into one building in the 1960s. 

From an interiors point of view, the styling is what I would call "traditional with a twist". We stayed in one of the suites, the bedroom of which was in a fairly traditional style. 

Our little seating area was slightly quirkier, however, with a splash of bright pink and some abstract art (a lot of which was dotted around the rest of the hotel):

The bathroom was fairly modern and functional, just as I like it (coincidentally the tiles are a very similar colour to our own bathtub at home)!

To be honest though, the real attraction wasn't necessarily the room, but the bar with its hundreds of types of gin...
