Autumn & Winter Interior Trends 2017

With the night’s drawing in, now’s the time to take note of the new season’s key trends. We unveil what to look out for and offer easy ways to integrate these interior trends into your home this autumn and winter.

Back to nature

As we delve deeper into autumn and winter, we see a move towards pared back natural materials and colours. From natural ceramics to jute rugs, woven lampshades and linen tablecloths, this trend is all about natural elements being used together. Chunky knitted products will feature heavily this season. Why not add a chunky knit throw or cushions as a way of simply updating your space? A mishmash of materials can be displayed in conjunction, thus accentuating the different textures and tones.

The natural colour palette ranges from off-whites and soft creams to a spectrum of greys, including dark slate. Grey is a versatile neutral colour and will continue to be stylish throughout this season and beyond.

In keeping with the natural theme, houseplants are also a big hit this season. While florals tend to be associated with summer trends, flowers and greenery can add warmth and character to your home during the autumn and winter months too. Succulents in the bathroom or kitchen are a great way to get started. Alternatively, curate your own collection by filling every corner of your home. From fringed ferns to seasonal blooms, bring the outdoors in whatever the time of year.

Brass is back

This season, cold metals, such as chrome and silver, make way for the warmer tones of brass. However, ensure you use brass sparingly to create a chic rather than cheap look. Lighting and accessories are an ideal way to integrate the metal into your home. When combined with natural materials, brass creates a sophisticated aesthetic.  

Brass is also perfectly paired with a green colour scheme, which ties in with the trend of natural, earthy colours. Create a cosy autumnal feel by teaming green with the rich tones of brass. The deep shade of emerald green creates a dramatic look and works well with brass accessories.

Think pink

Millennial pink was a popular colour trend earlier this year and it seems set to stay for the new season, albeit in a slightly toned down shade. Team muted pink tones with smoky greys to create a soothing space, suitable for any room. Colour psychology research demonstrates that certain colour schemes can invoke different moods. Pinks are said to create harmony and contribute to an atmosphere of peace and calm in the home. Combining dusky colours with complimentary glass or white accessories will ensure your interior scheme is sophisticated rather than sickly sweet. If you don’t want to revamp an entire room, then the simple addition of basic accessories, such as bed linen, is often enough to give a nod to the new season trend.

Pink also works well with another of this season’s colour trends, which is navy. This contrasting colour combination adds depth to any interior. Dusky pinks paired with indigo-ink navy combine femininity with traditional masculine tones. This ensures your use of pink isn’t too overwhelming and your room remains a unisex space.

 

Time for textiles

Clever use of textiles can add depth to any interior and velvet features heavily this autumn and winter. Velvet fabric feels luxurious and is a warm and welcoming addition. It works particularly well when combined and contrasted with rough natural textures, such as reclaimed wood and woven baskets or smooth metals and ceramics. It adds visual interest and tactile cosiness to a room. If your budget won’t stretch to larger items, such as upholstered chairs or footstools, simply add a velvet cushion or throw instead.

Similarly, woven textiles and accents bring equal depth to a room. Create a focal point by hanging a basket on the wall or add interest by putting plants in wicker stands. Again, contrast the rough texture with soft velvet or hand-knit wool throws for an autumn and winter interior winner.
