DG at Home | A seasonal change

The World of Designers Guild




“There is a beautiful moment between the shifting seasons that I absolutely adore. It’s the perfect time to embrace those crucial little changes that will breathe vitality into the home again. I much prefer to evolve my home seasonally, with a focus on the smaller elements rather than making any radical changes.

As the long nights beckon; I like to swap crisp linens for lustrous, heavyweight velvets. I also switch cushions and throws – our Autumn collection features rich and expressively coloured designs in such beautiful, soft and tactile textures - perfect for the cooler months.

A piece of furniture can look very different through how it is upholstered. I love to mix textures; the way that the richness of velvet works with a nubbly tweed weave – the contrast evokes the inherent beauty of each. Don’t neglect this factor – take time to consider what fabric you upholster in, as it will not only create emphasis on the furniture, but the room as well.

A home needs layers; it needs to work for many different purposes and so a deft mix of colour, pattern and texture that all work collectively, in my mind, adds so much personality and spirit.” Tricia Guild
