KEEP WARM AND CARRY ON

Simon and Garfunkel sang ‘Seasons change with the scenery’, but in the world of interiors, our scenery changes with the seasons.

As the temperature begins to drop and the sun starts sinking lower in the sky, we’re swapping our lightweight linen sheet sets for their woven woolly counterparts, our open toed slides for closed in (furry!) slippers, and our slip dresses for dressing gowns.

At AKD, we spend our days helping people to emotionally connect with their surrounding spaces by adding layers of warmth and texture in their homes. This is even more important as we begin to spend more time indoors, enjoying, entertaining in, and engaging with our interior spaces.

So, whether we’re adding layers to wear, to sit or to stand on, to breath or to bathe in, to have or to hold, or to simply snuggle under, we’ll be keeping warm and carrying on this winter - both in comfort and style!

ALL WE WANT FOR CHRISTMAS

It’s not called a ‘wish’ list for nothing!

We had so much fun editing all of the website and magazine bookmarks we've been saving this year to each collate the top 5 items we are coveting this Christmas.  

We hope we unwrap one (or two) of these beauties on Christmas day!

WHY SO BLUE?

Blue is the colour most commonly associated with harmony, faithfulness, confidence, infinity, imagination and of course, Summer.

Cue European vacation.

My all-time favourite hue of blue is the colour of the Mediterranean Sea . . . in all its glorious shades – the colour of the ocean pre-siesta is completely different to post. It seems that I am not the only one enamoured with blue. This season I’ve seen it everywhere on my travels, from the uncharacteristically perfect clear London sky, to the Blue Mosque in Istanbul, the whitewashed and blue detailed houses littering the cliffs in Mykonos, right down to this seasons hottest runway looks and my most covetable fashion accessories. Even celebrities are naming their children in honour of it . . .

   The evil eye is a curse believed to be cast by a malevolent glare, usually given to a person when they are unaware. Many cultures believe that receiving the evil eye will cause misfortune or injury. Talismans created to protect against the evil eye are also frequently called "evil eyes".
