A BREATH OF FRESH AIR

It's hard to believe that it's almost time to farewell Summer. Although I'm not quite ready, I must admit that I actually love this transeasonal time of year as we witness the colours of the urban landscape change so dramatically around us.

And as we begin to switch our iced coffee orders for warm spiced chai lattes, we are making the most of these final few weeks with their long balmy nights, and welcoming the refreshingly sexy chill that has begun to linger on our skin. As I look outside the window of our design studio, I see the trees transforming to red, orange, pink and gold before my eyes. Knowing there is nothing I can do to stop their branches from soon falling bare, I decide to embrace the coolness that's inevitably coming.

With these changes on the way, we turn inward, gravitating to the warmth of indoors to keep as snug as bugs. Perhaps this time spent inside will inspire and ignite the interior design fire within each of us. I, for one, am already tempted by these stunning autumnal pieces which would make any one happy to be stuck indoors in the cooler months ahead and beyond. 

These retro-inspired  Classicon Bow Coffee by Guilherne Torres  provide the perfect balance between casual and elegant with their beautiful deep burnished brass and glass tops that reflect the surrounding space. The three tables come together to create a dynamic and moody sculptural centrepiece for any lounge room.
