STAYING COOL THIS WINTER

At AKD we don't discriminate. We love all of our seasons in equal measure. Each offering unique opportunities to experiment with new colour palettes and seasonal textiles, a welcome chance to play with our lighting plans as the sunlight changes month to month, and continually feeding our obsession with curating our beloved layers, allowing us to find the perfect balance to offset the dancing temperatures.

So we welcome Winter to Sydney this season with a warm embrace, and have no issue at all that Alex (along with seemingly half the Insta population!) is currently basking under the hot European Summer sun in the middle of the Greek Islands! 

Let's make the most of those deliciously crisp days by adding some stylish new layers to our Winter wardrobes, or by enjoying some much-deserved down-time indoors with our suggested Winter-warming treats. Our 'winterspiration' is sure to keep you cool and on-trend this season. 

There is no better way to warm up your home than with a Designer Fire. For homes without traditional fireplaces, this is the perfect solution to create the hearth and the warmth in your home.

Brighten up these shorter, darker days with a beautiful blooming bouquet or two! Perfect for any season and any occasion. We love Alberto Caiola's contemporary interior design of Shanghai-based florists, July’s Flower. The large mirrored dishes result in a cornucopia of blossoms reflected ad infinitum.

Two of our favourite things - copper and wine - combine! Tom Cotton has designed the most elegant wine decanter that will keep a good drop really good for up to 12 days . . . if you have more restraint than us to keep it for that long, that is!
