It happens every year. As soon as the days start to get shorter and the mornings get crisper, tartan starts to creep into the shops. Tartan, and chunky cable knits and deer motifs. And this year is no exception with the appearance of The Highlands collection at House of Fraser. Cutsey it’s not. In fact, it’s a subtle, quite sophisticated take on the whole Scottish lodge ideal.
There’s no room for sparkle in this look. The warmth emanates from the thick textures and the layering of cushions and throws. A roaring fire and a selection of candles is enough glow to combat whatever the weather is doing outside. It’s about battening down the hatches and creating a cosy nest for retreating to when outside pursuits are done. It’s about relaxing over a leisurely meal and long lazy lie-ins at the weekend.
It’s all about comfort.
