Autumn/Winter 2016 Interior Design Trends

As the evenings pull in and we start to think about our winter wardrobes, why not take a look at what this season's key interior design trends are for the home.

 

Colours 

Let's start with colour, because as we move into Autumn/Winter 2016 it's all about shades of grey. Being a colour that sits between white and black, grey is a neutral option, although when you head towards dark grey it becomes more dramatic. On the other side of the scale, move to silver or white and you see a much more lively and illuminating side of grey. 

If you're looking for a calm and relaxed feel to a bedroom, this Appletree Evelina Duvet Cover (£16.99) is the perfect silver grey with a white floral pattern and a darker grey on the reverse. 

Want something a more vibrant?  Then the blues reign supreme, with midnight blue, indigo and ink as the key colours this season to add a dash of drama to your home, whether in the bedroom or bathroom. We love these Christy Moreton Towels in Ink for a splash of rich blue, starting at £11.00, you can choose from four different sizes.

 

Materials 

When it comes to textiles and fabric, Autumn always heads toward cosy and luxurious materials. The knitted accessories trend is continuing with chunky cable knit pouffes to rest your feet on in front of the fire.    

There’s also something comforting about indulging in winter throws and cushions, especially when they are warm, plush and oh so 'strokable'. Faux furs and velvet cushions will add a touch of warmth to any room, these elegant Kai Scriva Cushions (£27.96) also are available in this season's key colours from silver to indigo to keep you bang on trend in your home. 

If you love colour and want to add a touch of style at the same time, then check out tartan and check textiles, a continuing statement pattern for Autumn/Winter every year. One of our favourites is the Biederlack Thermosoft Nautical Check Throw, perfect for any bed or cosying on the sofa and at just £20.00 it will add a splash of stylish colour, without spending a fortune.

For Autumn/Winter 2016/2017, homeware features move away from marble and copper accents for more DIY elements, like ceramics and cork. The T&G Cork Rectangular Tablemats (£9.99) are a great accessory to a dark wood dining table. Serve up your meals in tableware from the elegantly rustic Denby Halo Collection, featuring rich tones of glaze which merge to create a unique result that's bang on-trend for Autumn/Winter 2016.

 

Furniture

Rattan furniture from chairs to sideboards with rattan drawers continues to be popular and teams up nicely with all the plush softness of the luxurious throws and cushions which are making a statement this year.  To have the slightly weathered and rougher texture of rattan softened by luxury fabrics adds real interest to a room.

 

Inspiration for Home Accessories 

For Autumn/Winter 2016, we're seeing a lot of Nordic inspiration using the simplicity of the grey shades with rustic furniture. 

Add to the Nordic feel with some vintage inspiration and you can bring your kitchen into 2016 with some interesting and rustic tableware designs. This Sieni Fishie on a Dishie Salad Bowl (£11.20) is just the right size for pasta and if you like this style then you must take a look at the Sieni tableware range available at Palmers, including some charming mugs.

Staying with the vintage/retro look, and tying this in with check fabric, we've found these perfect reversible Kai Nevado Cushions (£31.96) again in this season's key colours.  Whether for the bedroom, living room or a hallway chair, the trendy but timeless houndstooth design will make a real statement piece.
