Real Living Magazine homewares and bedding collaboration with Freedom

Ready to get cosy? Real Living magazine and Freedom have collaborated on a homewares and bedding nostalgic camping-inspired capsule collection that is all florals, tartan, checks and paisley. Think camp beds and army blankets, faded eiderdowns with chunky knit throws, Liberty-style floral prints, tartan, ticking stripes and herringbone twill.

It's all very nostalgic and super-cosy; perfect for hibernating at home with a big glass of red wine and stacks of good, dark chocolate as the temperatures go down. I joined some lovely bloggers, stylists and guests of Freedom and Real Living magazine at the 1876-built Palm House in the Sydney Botanic Gardens last week for an early Autumn lunch to view the new collection. Here's a peek:

The new tartan has overlocked edging, luxurious fringing and a shot of hot pink:

My favourite piece is the tan leather cushion with charcoal grey wool blanket reverse; sophisticated and cosy, and a perfect masculine foil for the florals and paisley.

Brighten winter days with the Hello Sunshine cushion:

And this fresh hero floral print will go with everything:

Don't hate me - I got to take some of these roses home!

The launch event started with floral punch from vintage iridescent Carnival Glass tea cups and a string quartet in the Botanic Gardens...

The Palm House was so beautifully styled by the Freedom team. Place settings included personalised embroidered napkins set on a long table and Palm Beach Collection candles nestled amongst dahlias, roses and heart-breaking blooms by Holly Hipwell. Vignettes around the room showcased the new products in the collection beautifully.

We were all given an early copy of the new April 2015 Real Living magazine. And if that wasn't enough, delicious food and matched wine was then served, followed by a Flour and Stone pistachio and raspberry cake, cheese platter, and a killer espresso martini with local honey from those talented fellas from Trolley'd. Divine.

None of us wanted to leave. Thank you so much Freedom and Real Living magazine for having me; it was lovely to share in this beautiful celebration of cosy living for the coming months.

You can find the new Freedom and Real Living homewares and bedding collaboration in Freedom stores around Australia from 6th April 2015.
