It may feel warm outside but cooler days are coming and this means new interiors trends for the changing seasons. So, follow my advice on what I predict will be hot for the home this autumn.
There is no doubt that this oozes longevity. In fact, it’s one of the 2018 autumn interiors trends, which is easy to emulate. Think of a combination of earthy neutrals and natural materials and you’re half-way there. Pale wood furniture, such a simple dining table, can work beautifully. Simply team with an eclectic mix of seating to complete this laid-back look in a neutral colour palette. Habitat is a great place to start for a good collection of pared-down, neutral pieces.
I think big is beautiful so over-sized florals are set to prove a hit in interiors this autumn. Whether you choose this style of print on wallpaper for a feature wall or pick an upholstered piece of furniture, using florals will freshen up your living space. This modern take on flower power is perfect for those who like to make a statement in their home. You can use eye-popping colours or more muted shades to make this look work in your own home. A pretty dusky pink floral paper on your walls will work well with classic-style furniture for a more timeless statement. Check out the stunningly beautiful wallpaper from Mural Wallpapers for timeless style in your living room.
You may think this style is suited only for summer months, but think again. This natural material with a hand-made feel can work well in a white-washed home for Scandi appeal. Try a sheepskin rug draped over a rattan chair for a cosier finish. I love the woven look and it’s a great all-year-round theme which can be dressed up or dressed down to work with the changing seasons.Nordic Mood Interiors’ Curly chair is perfect if you’re looking for a statement Scandi-style piece to add some neutral flavour to your home.
I mean beautiful, big bursts of rich, bold colour. Whether you paint a wall in navy blue or add a rust-coloured sofa to your home, the choice is yours. Of course, the mustard look can be difficult to master. However, in the latest interiors trends, you can add an accent of this colour and easily off-set it against a more neutral backdrop. Neutral walls and pale wood tones can add a chromatic effect to this, for example. Mustard is back on the interiors radar and looks gorgeous with modern neutrals. The latter colour trend may suit those who like to play it safe with their interior. I’m absolutely head over heels for this beautiful Loaf Dixie sofa, which actually comes in a whole host of colour ways. In fact, 144 to be precise!
White is alright
This colour is ideal for making smaller spaces look brighter and will instantly create a fresh finish wherever you use it. From white-washed walls and floors to bed linen and dining room furniture, this shade is making a big comeback for autumn. It can create the perfect base for smaller rooms in the home such as a hallway or guest bedroom. With the latter, you can always add a soothing grey tartan throw or even a pop of colour, such as a berry red, for dramatic effect. It is official – I love The White Company for everything white. However, I also love them for the way they add neutral tones to the home for more depth in a design.
You may have noticed that many of the latest interiors trends for autumn can interlink, making them so versatile for use throughout the home. The Artisan look is no exception and this folk-inspired handcrafted theme in homewares can look superb in the kitchen. Choose tiles with cosy appeal for your kitchen splashback. So on trend, this will instantly add warmth to an open-plan kitchen diner living space. These patchwork tiles from Tile Mountain make a striking backdrop in this kitchen don’t you agree?
Embrace this trend with one key piece of furniture or buy an entire collection for matching appeal . Look for black , lacquered finishes on furniture in styles from the historical Chinese Dynasty periods. Oriental-style console tables tend to be sleek and minimalist making them the perfect piece of furniture for a narrow hallway. You can read all about this trend in my blog post on 15 minutes on Oriental style with…Orchid Furniture’s Jemma Page.
Geometrics are still going strong and look set to continue in the home for early 2019. From striking bed linen to bold rugs, it seems there is a pattern and colourway for everyone. The best way in which to use this pattern to create interest in your home is with wallpaper. The key is to be bold and conquer your walls with another dimension. Feature walls such as this one from Wallsauce.com will certainly set the scene in a modern home for a stand-out feature in your living space.
Metallics in the home has been high on the interiors agenda for some time but mixing metals takes it to another level. One of the latest interiors trends for 2018, you no longer need to choose just one metal. Now, you can mix them up for a more luxurious effect. One perfect example is in a wet room and we love this space featuring the Merlyn 8 Series wet room shower wall. I think you should choose gold accents for the brassware and perhaps contrast these with a silver sculpture on your vanity unit. This modern metallic finish will then set the perfect tone for a hotel-style finish in your bathroom.
