With the cold winter approaching us, staying indoors has never seemed a better idea. So why not make staying inside a little more exciting by sprucing up your home with a lick of paint or updating your home with the latest season trends.
Warmer tones, soft florals and tactile furnishings are key for keeping on trend this season. Our home is somewhere we want to recuperate after a long day, to feel at ease and relaxed. Incorporating relaxing and calming colours, alongside comfortable furnishes will soon evolve your home into that rich haven we crave to be welcomed by.
So what are the trends this season? Here are the 3 key trends to look out for:
Colours for this years Autumn/Winter trends are dark and moody. Not so dark that we make our homes look like a derelict cave, but softer more muted colours. Deep purples and greens, along with greys and navy blues are great for a feature wall along with a cool cream or a soft beige.
Wallpaper is also a great to use a feature wall and can still incorporate colour into the room. Try looking out for wallpapers with a soft floral design or even a stripe pattern to add a more diverse and quirky look.
Throws are a must when the weather gets cold. Nothing is better than getting cosy on the sofa with a warm throw and a hot chocolate. For this season chunky knits and faux fur throws are perfect for hanging over the sofas for décor and then cuddling up to in the evenings.
Quirky and heritage designs are also great accessories for this season. Stag heads and furnishes are also a gorgeous piece to add something a little different to the room to help transform a city home into a warm and cosy cottage feel.
Tartan has left the fashion walkway and walked into the world of interior design! Tartan is a great fun and bold print, perfect for both bedrooms and living rooms. Gorgeous in both a warm red or khaki green, it exhilarates both autumnal colours as well as adding a great feature wall or accessory to the room.
If you are afraid of bringing bolder prints into your home, why not introduce them slowly with smaller accessories before moving onto a feature wall or a recurring them. Maybe add a simple cushion, throw or decorative piece and see how the room works alongside the new print.
This seasons style are trends are perfect for any home, whether you prefer a classic or contemporary look. Why not check out a local vintage market or a quirky independent shop to find a classic piece to add to your home.
