Autumn Home Trends for 2018

I am so excited for Autumn this year and all the home décor trends and colour pallets! Why oh why have I not moved yet so I can start creating!

There’s a lot to get through and I really think the high street is really upping their game to satisfy our love for interior décor.

There is a lovely variety of colours, patterns and styles so there is sure to be one that resonates with you.

I am pleased to see contemporary grey is sticking around but paring with a soft mustard/golden yellow looks gorgeous and adds a nice twist. We have rosy pinks, blush pinks, vibrant pinks and Claret, rusts and darker neutrals. Which I find are a wonderful collection of Autumnal hues

Blue is another colour home decor trend sticking around, it’s being used a lot in furnishing, wallpaper and add a geometric twist. I have to say I do really love all the midnight blue velvet and geometrics print!

We will also see rattan furniture sticking around, Scandi with a twist, it will be mixed more with a vintage look. If you add brass, dusky pink and grey accents to the monochrome colour palette. It’s about making the house more Hygge yes hygge is still staying it’s just become even cosier. A little bit of soft colour to warm the soul and gently infuse the room. It looks so cozy in candlelight and the glow of a fire, so it’s a way of cascading that glow around the room. Autumn is about being snuggled and cozy, the planning and routine you are setting for a prelude to winter.

New age Folk is another Autumn home decor trend coming through. This is about taking inspiration from earthy tones so rust, claret, terracotta, tan and ochre. It always makes me think of Persian rugs, Ikat patterns, fur and terracotta and brown pots, Maps as pictures. There is a lot of bobbles too on cushions and throws which I love! And if you are scared of wearing Leopard print why not bring it in as an accent home accessory. Always remember that Layering patterned, geometric rugs can add visual interest to the home, but adding this pallet and texture it increases the comfort levels. It is about being cozy but having all your travel adventure finds around you. snuggle with a nice hot drink ( maybe a mulled wine), look at your map and plan your next adventure.

The Autumn Fashion trend of checks and tartan is also coming into home furnishings and wallpaper too, I do love a bit of Tartan and I did fall in love with these chairs at the Next at home Christmas preview, how gorgeous and cosy do they look! They were super comfy!

Floral Trend

it’s a go big or go home style here, oversized floral wall motifs, wallpaper, cushions, and lampshades. Even in fabrics on chairs and sofas, As you will have seen the gorgeous floral chair you all loved on my Instagram from the Next at home Christmas preview. I had to add it back in here for you all!

The key is to use these florals and then keep the rest of the look simple, but accentuate one or two key colours within the is a very effective and striking look. Think of Fanny Cornforth the artist Dantes model and muse, flowing red locks, Jewel-toned clothes with floral backgrounds!

Which leads me into jewel tones which are a striking colour pallet if you are brave enough to introduce into your home; These colours are an infusion of intoxicating sophistication. Think Emerald, Teal, Saphire and Eggplant, balanced with Metallic or glossy finishes adding light to these dark and empowering shades. As before I mentioned the midnight blue colour coming through which would certainly be a way to tap into this. It is a dramatic look but still imparts a cosy hue to your room. Take this colour pallet onto your walls, or your fabrics, then introduce fabulous chandeliers and art deco pieces.

As you can see there is a lot going on this Autumn, and it’s how the high street is tapping into this trend and how well they are all doing it. There is a huge mixture so I feel what is coming through will appeal to all tastes. The envelope is being pushed; it’s not just about a dark wall anymore, we are getting braver! Have you got any DIY projects or makeovers planned for Autumn? Are you going to try any of the new trends? What Trend here is your favourite?

      Thanks Diana! I know the Scandinavian with a twist looks so comforting and cosy, and the blue I just love it’s so glamorous and sultry! Play around with the space you have, just by using plants, textiles, books and throws! When you have your own space you can go wild! X

    I want that tartan Christmas chair!!!
    My experience with Maison du Monde is unfortunately not good! They chest drawer that I bought for Clara’s nursery was literarily falling apart. They did however pay me half the amount back after I sent them a video of some very squeaky drawers 🙂
    Lovely photos as always

      I know that chair is Fabulous isn’t it! it makes me want to decorate a room just for that chair! Oh no Louise that’s not good with Maison du Monde, my experiences have been good but I have only bought soft furnishings and accessories not furniture! I would have thought they should have given you a full refund for faulty goods as that is the law? xx
