In/Out - Palette: Tartan & Tweed

Enjoy the jolly good show, saddle up and enjoy the ride! It’s a poor sport that doesn’t want to dust off the family kilt and take supper with a fiery tibble in the library. Ok so we don’t really have a proper winter here but as the temperature drops we all have a little tartan & tweed longing. It’s the immaculate layering, timeless tailoring, details not only in the fabric but all the nonchalant embellishments that accompany and are associated with a textile of such blue blood.

It’s comfort, warmth and honest materials. It’s classic heirlooms, found objects, roaring fires, golden hues of rich old red timbers, autumnal tones with rich accents of red, burgundy, emerald & dark navy. It’s peeling wallpapers, hearty blankets, solace and bustle, family and friends – all that is close to the bosom and fond of heart. Walnut, copper, velvet, leather and of course, wool are just a few materials that come to mind when we ruminate on tartan & tweed.

And if there’s one great dame that knows how to steal the show with tartan & tweed it’s the most truly marvelous iconic English designer Vivienne Westwood.

Rich in history and fabulously appealing to the winter’s eye, go on and embrace the warmth of tartan and tweed this winter.

    Absolutely love the pictures in this post. How fabulous does the Tartan jacket look over the black ruffled blouse. The wall paper in the next shot with the gold mirror is gorgeous too. I love the whole OTT look!

    I find the tartan and tweed look so perfectly english and it makes me want to fill my home with open fires, hot chocolates and little ones freshly bathed and snuggles ready for a bedtime story. Perfection!

    On the little isle south of the mainland we certainly get days cold enough for tartan!
