My daughter (fondly known as the Duchess) is a fashionista. She is a girly girl, so she loves her skirts and dresses a little more than your average girl. The Duchess loves to twirl around in her pieces, which is why she was extra thrilled when she got this beautiful green and gold dress courtesy of David Charles Childrenswear. This piece is now one of her favourite dresses in her wardrobe.

The green colour with gold-embroidered florals makes this dress stand out. It is an unusual colour combination, and I love that about it. The lavish tulle layering finishes off the dress in a beautiful way. I also like the fact that the dress is light and feels soft to touch. My daughter was very comfy wearing this dress which is great as I see her wearing a lot of it.

The handcrafted details – puffed cap sleeves and jewelled embellished velvet ribbon at the waist, with a concealed zip fastening give the dress a “wow” effect.

Top 6 Interior Design Trends for Winter

It’s just like yesterday when we were basking in the sun and enjoying the summer. Now winter is just round the corner and we’re starting to miss the warmth. If you’re like me, this is the time I give my home a facelift.

This winter, there are some popular trends in interior design that are worth giving a try. The good news is that it’s super easy to adopt these winter trends in your own home.

 

 

6 Commandments of Interior Design image

 

Here are top 6 interior design trends for winter.

 

  1. Warmer colours

Interior designers use the power of colours to change the overall mood of a room. This may seem like a very simple trick but it’s extremely effective. Colours have a way of introducing a new vibe in the room.

Summer is associated with warm colours. Incorporating such colours in your interior décor can give your home the needed cheery summery feel.

Opt for warmer tones like red, orange, and plum. A simple lick of paint with those warm tones can do wonders to your home. To switch things up a bit, you can get furniture or decorative items in those colours to give the room the needed warmth of summer.

 

  1. Floral details

Another interior design trend that promises to be a big hit this winter is floral details. Large floral prints in deeper shades are a favourite this season. Combining throw pillows and curtains with such patterns and shades preserves the summer vibe into your home despite the cold of winter.

 

  1. Metallic touch

Without a doubt there has been a predominance of metallic finishes in interior design this season and this winter will not be an exception. The metallic touch gives your home a modern feel. But to incorporate the warmth that is predominant in this season’s interior designs you can add metals of gold, bronze and rose gold tones. Such metals can be seen on decorative items.

 

  1. Luxurious velvet

It’s interesting to know how far velvet has come in being one of the most desired fabrics in interior décor. Often associated with wealth, class and luxury, velvet is one trend that you’ll see this winter.

Aside from its luxurious air, velvet gives the impression of warmth and coziness that is deeply desired during the winter months. Adding some velvet to your room will usher in that strong presence of warmth. You can incorporate velvet in so many ways like having a couple of velvet cushions or furniture with velvet upholstery.

 

  1. Mix of texture

This winter there a mix of textures that will be the order of the day in interior décor. A variety of textures like embroidery, knits and tassels will show up in cushions, curtains and carpets, while intricate wooden designs will feature in home accessories.  This mash of textures will create that cozy feel perfect for the winter. To create this vibe, play around with textures.

 

  1. Crystalline appeal

With winter comes a gloom but that doesn’t mean that your home should be that way. Hence, this winter there’ll be a lot of glass and crystalline items in interior designs. The glass brings the light that will brighten your home and give it cheer as well as keep it very modern.

You can incorporate glass and crystal pieces to your home with hand-blown glass lampshades and other glass fittings and accessories.

Half Term in Portugal Part 2

I wrote about our time in Portugal for the half term week yesterday and it has been well received. So I decided to publish the part 2 of our half term in Portugal post today. Portugal is a lovely country. We were in Algarve and also visited Lagos. Our trip was fun. We were in Portugal for 3 nights and the kiddies had a fantastic time exploring the beach, swimming pools and the Realito Kids Club.

Realito Kids Club

The kiddies had a great time at the Reality Kids Club. The workers were warm and pleasant to be around. They also engaged with the kids and kept them busy which was good. My daughter enjoyed colouring, playing with Lego and watching the staff dance to dance videos. My son was more interested in the toys and the outdoor slides. They both loved the kids club and it comes highly recommended by us. If your kids are over 3 years, you have the option of leaving if you wish which is handy for when you need some child-free time. We visited the Realito Kids Club twice and although we didn’t leave the kids, we saw many parents do.

There is also a table tennis section to keep the parents occupied. I saw a couple of parents doing that.

The Beach

We had a lovely time exploring the beautiful beach. The weather was great and beach was a sight to behold. My kids love playing at the beach. Building sand castles and dipping their legs into the water is their favourite thing to do. They also enjoy posing for photos, which I am always happy to take. I guess that is why I have so many photos from our trip. But there is never a thing like too many photos, especially when it comes to holidays.

The Swimming Pools

We had the opportunity to dip into the swimming pools. I spotted about 4 different outdoor pools in the entire hotel –  Grande Real Santa Eulalia Resort & Hotel. And they were indoor pools available as well. We even had a private pool for our side of the resort which was usually not busy. I have never seen a hotel with these many swimming pools until I visited this one.

We had a blast swimming in warm afternoons. It was a great way to unwind, relax and bond as a family.

I still have quite a lot of photos to share. My plan is to write-up another post so I can include the rest of the photos on there. The photos serve as a reminder of our Portugal trip and I would love to have them all on Fashion and Style Police. For the next post, I will be sharing photos from our visit to Lagos Portugal, and other bits. The next travel post should be up in the next few days so watch this space.
