There are some exciting trends to consider this autumn and below, we show you our favourites and how to put them together in your home.

Geometric Colour Blocking

If you can’t decide on a single colour for a room you are redecorating, why not opt for a selection of colours? This ‘colour blocking’ trend is perfect for the autumn blues and you can pick several contrasting shades together for extra impact. Here, the floor is kept neutral for balance and the light walls also act as neutral tone to stop the colours from overpowering the space. Team with accessories in single colours like the scatter cushions and sidetable.

The Natural Touch

Think beautiful organic accessories like stone jugs, fringe rugs and woven lampshades and you’ll be spot on with this trend. This look is all about natural elements being combined together. The colour palette ranges from off whites, creams and a variety of greys, from light rain to the tone of dark slate.

Shades of Teal

An uplifting tone that sits between turquoise and blue, teal is the perfect shade to use to give a room a brighter aspect. It works particularly well when combined with fresh white and looks fantastic with pale blonde wood, as can be seen here. The simple lines of the furniture give a modern feel whilst the teal rug adds a decorative touch and links to the wall colour. Accessorise with soft greys and turquoise glass.

Nordic Interiors

Scandi design is all the rage and what’s more perfect than a minimalist combination? For a dramatic Scandinavian look opt for deep shades and textured accessories or if you prefer a more serene space then choose a hue a few tones lighter. Nordic pieces like chairs and wooden legged tables look great teamed with blush pinks and gold accessories. Break the look up by using prints in contrasting shades to add interest.

Bring in Botanicals

You don’t need any outdoor space to enjoy the beauty and benefits of nature at home. Houseplants are bigger than ever and add the most perfect decorative element to a home. Pair a trailing leaf plant with a monochrome pot for extra decadence on a shelf or maybe just opt for some little succulents in the bedroom to get started. Artificial plants are your best friend if you don’t have the time to maintain them!

Super soft and luxurious, velvet is a trend that has never really been out. The sumptuous fabric with its elegant finish gives a feel of quality and luxury every home needs, and if you don’t want to invest in a sofa or bed, opt for a wingback chair with some velvet cushions or a throw instead. Choose from colours that are warm to look at such as deep reds and royal blues.

Of course you do not have to include all of these trends in your home this autumn. A simple switch in accessories can bring a room bang up to date without breaking the bank! You’ll create a trendy space that will combat any thoughts about the cold and sometimes dreary autumn! Which trend will you be implementing in your home?
