I get so excited when my favourite homeware brands release their new collections. I mean, who doesn't love the opportunity to spruce up their home every now and then? Even if we're only talking about something small and inexpensive, it's amazing what a new set of glasses or plates can bring to a kitchen, or what a new throw can add to a lounge room. And let me tell you, rummaging through the best of Etsy hasn't done anything to ease my obsession with all things fine and fancied.

About two years ago, I discovered AURA by Tracie Ellis, and my first memory of them is feeling totally annoyed at myself that I hadn't discovered them earlier. It was right after the release of their then summer collection, just as they were about to explode onto the social media scene Australia-wide. As described by Tracie herself, owner and creative force behind the Melbourne-based company, "in the most literal, descriptive sense, AURA makes bedlinen and home accessories. It may strictly be true but in no way indicates the amount of passion and excitement a mere object can contain. AURA isn’t simply a brand of homewares, it is a sumptuous window to the world, and yet an oasis of pleasure and comfort within the home."

For those who've followed the brand over the years, you'll definitely agree with my sentiments when I say that AURA just keeps getting better and better. Flaunting big patterns, bright colours and striking metallics, their latest winter collection is hard to ignore.

Here are some of my favourite pics from their new catalogue:

So, which is your favourite look?

I'm having real trouble picking mine. I guess I'll have to choose more than one! I do love the crosses quilt cover in marine with its contrasting jade trim, but I think the one I just won't be able to do without has to be the timeless black and cream wide stripe look – it's just too stunning!

To celebrate the release of this collection, AURA is offering the chance to win a $500 gift voucher, valid in their online shop. All you need to do is follow the simple instructions on to be in the running (open to residents worldwide). It's a great chance to browse their site and put together your own wish list.

I've already done mine. Sigh, I want everything!
