As the days draw shorter and the chill begins to bite, our need for a glass of red wine goes up tenfold, all be it a tad early for the mulled variety! Of course, all that vino may have an adverse effect on one's liver, but, and yes, I can't believe I'm about to say the following either, you don't have to drink it! Why not pour it into your French wardrobe and let it trickle into your interiors instead?
Wine tones are in abundance this Autumn & Winter - not only are these tones flattering, but they offer that warmth which we can all start to crave as Jack Frost pays us his first visit. It's oh so easy to turn to the LBD come Winter, but according to Prada and Burberry, it's time for the LRD! The runways were packed with a fierce array of berries and pillar boxes for the A/W 2013 shows, with offerings from JW Anderson, Eudon Choi and Jonathon Saunders. Open your inbox in the coming weeks to find your favourite online boutiques boasting their burgundy options including one of our faves from My-Wardrobe – Each X Other's velvet tuxedo jacket and trouser combo.
If you'd still rather your shabby chic wardrobe didn't get too tipsy on the reds, adding a little hint of rouge to your home, as a nod towards the colour that’s here to stay, might be the way forward. Red makes a perfect accent colour, be it lighting, cushions or rugs - it can help pull an other wise grey looking scheme together; giving depth, warmth and a hint of passion to your perfectly chosen backdrop of classic French furniture.
