Autumn Winter Trends 2018
After a long hot Summer, Autumn has definitely arrived and as the temperature begins to fall the new season signals the arrival of new interiors trends. Trends change and evolve at differing paces with many remaining popular for years rather than months but always with a new edge to keep them fresh.
We’ve taken a look at the latest interiors trends and collated our favourite themes to inspire you this Autumn.
Although gold was a big trend back in the Spring, it continues to grow and is prominent into Autumn and Winter 2018. Drawing inspiration from the catwalk, gold accents bring warmth to any interior scheme, from taps and feature washbasins to mirrors, cushions and accessories, there is something for everyone.
Rich navys and luxurious midnight blues are THE key colour this season – you’re going to see it everywhere. Often perceived as a cold colour, but these rich deeper shades of blue can create a warm cosy effect making them perfect for the darker months.
Navy blue is a truly versatile shade that works well with just about any colour. It is so adaptable that it can be used both as a dazzling base colour, that breathes elegance and class, or as an accent colour to add intensity and style.
Reminiscent of the ocean, it is also a very relaxing colour, making this another the reason why Navy Blue is such a favourite amongst many.
Who doesn’t love a floral print?
This season sees large scale big blousy designs with a distinct pre-Raphaelite style. You’ll find them on home accessories such as cushions and bedding, as well as wallpaper and even washbasins!
Inspired by regal opulence, this trend has deep and dramatic tones, with mixed textures and soft velvets to ease you into the fresh winter months ahead. Be brave and go for dark, moody shades to complement the flowers and add a warm rich feeling to your sanctuary. Dark purples, deep plums, pinks and teals create a sumptuous haven that will surely turn heads.
Let the flowers become the star or the show by keeping all other items in the very simple and not too fussy. The Dutchmaster vessel basin makes the perfect focal point.
A dark and sophisticated shade of green, Shaded Spruce introduces a deep, sultry turquoise that conveys cosiness and tranquillity – perfect for the season. This shade creates a seamless transition from the Emerald Green that was popular throughout the year.
This evergreen shade evokes feelings of the forest, bringing peace and tranquillity to the home. So, whether you decide to feature it in your furniture choices, paint the walls in it or use a mid-century inspired wallpaper, this calm shade of green will immediately bring a sense of renewal and relaxation to your household.
Kitchens are undergoing a change. They are no longer about a single style of unit, a worktop and a complementary splashback. A new and exciting trend has emerged that is all about mixing it up – different textures sat next to each other, contrasting in both colour and touch to create a Tactile Kitchen.
A sleek quartz work surface with warm wooden base units and a marble back splash makes for an eye-catching space and one that is full of character. Be bold, throw out the rule book and allow yourself to explore different textures and tactile sensations until you find the combination that suits you and your home.
