What To Buy For Your House This Month

AISLINN COFFEY on the beige proposition …

Curtain, Bautista wool/cotton-mix fabric in Desert L9260-01. Cushions (from top): Horta linen-mix fabric in Tobacco L9240-04; Reyes fabric in Clay L9236-02; all www.larsenfabrics.com.

The beige proposition? The latest fashion and interiors trend is earthy, taupey, barely there neutrals. Camel, fleshy tones and fawn shades are back, and proving their worth as both background and starring role colours. From fleshy tones to warmer jute hues, it’s the go-to colour for the world’s top interior designers and is overtaking greys as the new neutral. Our opinion? This palette is anything but dull.

Fabrics (From top): Boni linen-mix fabric in Clay L9233-01; Lautner fabric in bone L9234-01; Lautner linen-mix fabric in Bronze L9234-03; Bowler linen/wool-mix fabric in Honey L9238-03; all wwww.larsenfabrics.com.

Room refreshers: Larsen’s latest fabric collection takes its inspiration from nature. Deliberately including natural imperfections, the subtle, elegant colours in earth and mineral tones will stand the test of time. www.larsenfabrics.com.
