Colours like teal, eggplant and sapphire blue are having a major moment, and autumn is the perfect season to fully experiment with these shades

Summer gets the reputation of being a bright, fun season. But we would argue that autumn and winter can be just as exciting, especially when it comes to making glamorous interior style statements.

It’s all about taking advantage of the changing colours and light of the seasons, with softer ochres coming to the fore, along with clever use of layers and textures. Rebecca Snowden, Interior Style Advisor at Furniture Choice dishes on our top 3 favourite trends for Autumn/Winter 2018, and how to get the look at home.

1. Work with Mid-Century textures and warm light

“The Mid-Century aesthetic never truly goes out of style, but in autumn, we’re anticipating that it will be especially big, since it immediately evokes a strong, classic style, while still being a perfect cosy palette to build on,” Rebecca says.

“Layering patterned, geometric rugs adds visual interest to the home while also upping comfort levels. And an easy way to get the look is to look for furniture that have strong lines, especially in brass and wood, such as an elegant coffee table or sofa.”

“We’ll also see the quality of light change from the brightness of summer to the softer tones of autumn. Work with this and use warmer tones in the home, with tan and ochre being great options that will set the mood without being overwhelming.”

2. Embrace and adapt natural motifs

Summer may have been the season of all things tropical, with palm and leaf motifs dominating, but in autumn, natural elements and texture are still key towards creating an inviting and visually exciting atmosphere.

“Perennial plants offer a fresh, natural take as decor and table centrepieces,” Rebecca advises. “While green plants are always a fool-proof way to embrace an organic look, plants with red, brown and orange hues will lend a lovely, seasonal twist to your autumn display.”

And if you love the look of wallpaper - stick to it, just adapt. “Green themes can still be front and centre, but in different tones. Swap out the brighter greens for a more lush, emerald take, or darker, moody florals.”

3. Add sophistication with glamorous jewel tones

Speaking of emerald - when applied to decor and furniture, jewel tones add a touch of elegance and cosiness to any room. Their more dramatic hues also make them ideal transitional shades for autumn.

“Colours like teal, eggplant and sapphire blue are having a major moment, and autumn is the perfect season to fully experiment with these shades,” says Rebecca. “Not only do they introduce a bold pop of colour to the space, they also add depth and comfort.”

“Metallic and glossy finishes play up the fun and elegance of these rich colours, offering a contrast and adding light to the space.”
