We are so fortunate in this country to experience all four seasons. Autumn is in full swing, the leaves are starting to turn and fall, the evenings are drawing in and there is definite chill in the air. Time to dig out the jumpers, boots, hats and gloves and perhaps it’s time to think about making some changes in the home. In this article we take a look at this year’s popular Autumn trends:
Peacock Blue Is In
A lot of people initially assume Peacock Blue to be a colour that is rather bold for the home, but this isn't the case. You can easily bring Peacock Blue into any room by teaming it with a light colour, such as a light pink or grey or to make a bolder statement team it with Gold or Mustard. A wonderful example of this Autumn trend can be seen on My-Furniture.com which features a stunning Peacock Blue chair with gold legs that would elegantly grace any living room or hallway.
Black accessories have been a popular part of home decor for many years now, but this autumn the trend has evolved to include furniture. Black furniture helps to create drama and it makes a statement, whilst still being chic and stylish. It’s a trend that is proving to be especially popular in dining rooms, with black dining tables and chairs often used to transform a space. Wayfair has a wonderfully vintage looking, extendable black dining table who’s design will stand the test of time.
Whereas summer is all about keeping the home light and airy, autumn is all about keeping the home warm and cosy. Layering is an autumnal trend that appears year after year. One of the easiest ways to embrace the layering trend is to add plenty of soft furnishings: cushions, throws, blankets and rugs. Choose items that have different feels and finishes to add texture. Looking for inspiration? Take a look at the range of cushions and throws from online store Very. They have a wide variety of colours, textures and materials.
Glitter and Metallics
Though it’s not a trend for everyone, there is no denying that glitter and metallics are making a statement this autumn. Adding gold, brass and copper embellishments bring something special into the home. This trend can be subtly executed with glitter or metallic tableware, soft furnishings and even candles. This gold edged fusion side plate from John Lewis would add a lovely accent to your dining experience.
Adding graphics is one of the easiest ways to add some life to the home. Retro is standing out this Autumn as a top interior design choice, with clean lines and geometric shapes being extremely popular. This trend is easy to achieve with retro artwork on the walls or even retro print bed linen. Amazon have a wide variety of geometric wall art, planters and even deer head designs!
As you can see, there is no shortage of Autumn home trends for you to embrace this year. Whether you add a hint of Peacock Blue or you add comfortable layers, you are sure to love the change.
