As we’re spending more quality time at home, hosting our friends and family, here are just some of the most popular home trends that Lucy Askew, Interiors Expert at www.Hillarys.co.uk predicts Britons to be adopting in their décor this Autumn and Winter:
“Approaching the Autumn and Winter seasons indicates the perfect time to introduce some new colour, styling, or interior features to your home. From earthy colour palettes to plush velvets, it’s all about creating a sense of calm in the home after such uncertainty, whilst incorporating a splash of luxury, as householders seek to create interiors that spoil themselves and their guests.
Pair Pink with Earthy Colours
It may not be the first Autumnal colour that springs to mind, but chalky pinks that represent a sense of tranquillity will continue to be a popular decorative choice in British homes as we approach the colder months.
Along with mauves and warm neutrals, these delicate tones of pink compliment earthy colour palettes perfectly. When paired with mossy greens and olive tones it induces a feeling of relaxation that can create a luxe retreat.
If you prefer bolder colours, opt for a dark green accent wall or a statement piece of furniture, and match with subtle shades of pink to make for an eye-catching piece that will impress guests.
As a nation we are becoming increasingly interested in nurturing the planet and many people want to bring this fascination with nature into their own homes, with a decorative flair. It is therefore to be expected that walls, shelves, and windowsills will be adorned with vibrant houseplants come Autumn.
From Orchids or Ferns to Chinese Money Plants, houseplants enhance any space of the home that you desire, enhancing your health too, by purifying the air and absorbing toxins.
There are several ways you can introduce them to your décor, either by making huge leafy plants a structural focal point against blank canvases, matching the accent colour in your scheme with the plant pot, adding height to a lonely corner or hanging smaller plants from your ceiling.
Shimmering, soft, and iridescent metals will become even more prevalent in UK homes later this year, as the metallic trend is set to surge in popularity.
Bring originality to furniture, walls, and lighting with metallic tones, colours, and textures. From warm copper and brass accents in your bathrooms, adding light and luxury, to incorporating eye-catching accessories like metal baskets and wire lanterns in the kitchen for a lustrous look.
You could even get creative with a lick of metallic paint on surfaces, or experiment with ombré foil effects and metallic threads, adding opulent finishes to mirrors and cushions.”
Luxury velvets will continue for another season as a popular textile trend in British homes.
Incorporating velvets into your interior not only adds character and depth, but allows you to experiment with different textures, styles, and patterns too, from throws and cushions to wall art and rugs.
If you’ve embraced dark interiors, opt for plush velvets to open up the space and add a lavish feel, which also pairs perfectly with warm, metallic accents. You could also try implementing the newest trends of tie dye crushed velvets and geometric patterns to add another dimension to your décor – the options are endless!
