Spotlight on Cinnamon

Brown has long been considered an easy, ideal choice for most homeowners, and this winter, the thought of warm cinnamon shades is making us want to revamp and redo. The combination of carrot spice and burnt orange adds a toasty touch to an interior, while copper and brass tones add a hint of luxe elegance. This colour trend works best with light shades of beige, and natural wood tones will give the cinnamon added emphasis. See below for a few of our favourite homeware and furniture items in spiced cinnamon:
