Share This Post

Autumn is the perfect time to redecorate your home; as the days grow shorter and cooler, it’s a great opportunity to spend more time indoors giving your interior some TLC. With winter fast approaching, let’s take a look at the most popular interior design trends this season. From vibrant colour schemes to themes that can inspire your home improvement project, there’s a lot to get excited about this AW15.

Contrasting Colours

Colour is a crucial consideration when decorating a room, determining everything from the walls and flooring through to the soft furnishings. This winter, brave the cold with greys, whites and majestic blues for a striking finish to your bedroom or lounge. Add a little warmth with colours such as red, purple or orange, for dramatic results that bring your room to life.

Vintage Design

Inspired by the designs of eras gone by? You’ll be pleased to know that historical trends are making a comeback for autumn/winter 2015. Whether you’re fascinated by the Art Deco styles of The Great Gatsby or you’re feeling nostalgic about the swinging 60s, indulge your passion for the past by opting for a vintage theme in your home.

If you can’t find what you’re looking for in vintage shops or on the high street, why not commission a bespoke piece of furniture that fits in with your new décor? A furniture specialist can create retro-inspired furniture that meets your exact specifications, combining traditional designs with modern functionality to achieve stunning results.

Tempting Textures

As the cold nights set in, adding a few cosy touches to your lounge, bedroom or office can transform your home into a winter wonderland. Thankfully, textures are all the rage this season, from plush faux fur to soft knitwear. Instead of opting for a plain headboard, chair or table, why not experiment with sensory textures such as rattan or leather?

Country Living

Autumn is a beautiful time of year in Britain. And if you read our summer trends blog you’ll know that bringing the outdoors indoors is a popular theme in 2015. Be inspired by the autumn leaves, earthy woodland and rustic landscape when decorating your home this season, to achieve naturally gorgeous results.

Distressed wooden surfaces and warm hues will all evoke the great British countryside, to create a farmhouse look that makes you feel at home. Handmade furniture can add to the rustic appearance of a room, giving it a personal touch that’s hard to achieve with mass-produced items.

This season’s interior design trends leave plenty of scope for customisation, from bold colours and textures to more natural, traditional styles. If you’re feeling inspired by any of these trends, an interior design expert can help you transform your vision into reality, planning out your new room and creating bespoke furniture to match your colour scheme and décor.
