Happy feet

Need an incentive to get out of bed in the morning? We think landing sleepy feet onto a sublime, soft rug is a pretty good step in the right direction.
Tuesday blog

A look favoured by stylists, a rug strategically placed under a bed helps to ground your bed, creating an overall sense of cosiness that is hard to beat- especially in the cooler months.

How to choose? For winter, the softer the better. Think plush, deep pile rugs or delicate weaves in soft wool.  Due to the position of the rug, you can get away with using rugs that would not be suitable in high traffic areas- The new Armadillo & co Sierra weave, pictured above, is the perfect example.

Small bedroom? Try adding a round rug- just enough for your feet to land softly out of bed (and add a much appreciated boost of colour.) Our favourite is a pure New Zealand wool reef rug- delightfully plush & available right now! Getting out of bed won’t seem so hard, after all.

Berry Beautiful


 We are all about layers of luscious colour as we dive deeper into winter. From a swirl of rich raspberry to a touch of strawberry pink, berry colours are simply lovely in the bedroom.

The clever folk at Design Seeds have inspired us this week to offset these girlish hues with a classic strike of navy and a calming base of dove grey.

Major Minor are all over this beautiful, yet unexpected combination with their pure linen pillowcases in pink & navy.

Simply add a St Alban’s Mohair throw and a plush wool southwood Reef rug and relax into the cooler nights. mosaic3

Our selection of delicious berry toned homewares are available at southwoodhome.com.au.

The choice is all yours!

We love nothing more than seeing our favourite southwood furniture designs come to life in colours & fabrics customised just for you!

To get you started and make choosing easy & fun, we have put together a little ‘how-to’ guide for creating your perfect southwood sofa or chairs.

1. Dare to dream:

Think about what colours you are naturally drawn to and what you would love to see centre stage in your living room. Having a made-to-order sofa is the perfect opportunity to get something you have always wanted.

2. Look around you:

Ask yourself- does the room need an exciting new centrepiece or a lovely backdrop for other things? Take a close look at the colours & textures of your existing furniture, rugs, artwork and other items you see yourself holding onto-they will all need to work with your new furniture.

3. Bring a piece of home with you:

Bring in photographs, fabric samples, anything from home that you think might help and we can take it all into account for you. The more we can see, the better the advice we can offer!


4. Try it at home:

Once you’ve narrowed the choice down, taking your selected fabric samples home with you is a great way to help with the decision. Fabrics can vary in different light, so it pays to see how the colours look at different times throughout the day. You’ll also get an idea of how the colours work with your favourite things.

From there you can wait with confidence while your unique southwood furniture is crafted by hand just for you!

We are proud to introduce to you the painterly cushions from UK based artist & textile designer Amy Sia.

An ex-pat with a fashionable past, Amy refined her creative eye at Australian fashion labels Willow and Anna Thomas before turning to homewares.

We have a range of Amy’s artfully curated cushions, each digitally printed onto 100% cotton with a cotton/linen blend natural backing.  Her 45cm cushions range from psychedelic kaleidoscope prints to dreamy brush strokes in truly vibrant colours.  They are stuffed with duck feathers for a luxuriously pump cushion.
