Home trends to try this Autumn

Cassie Pryce

With new season ranges hitting the high street this month, we’ve rounded-up the hottest new looks in the world of interiors

The new nomadic

Wooden side table, £38; Nomad rug, £15; macramé wall hanging, £14; macramé cushion, £18; inlay wooden frame, £8; Nomadic traveller gold and red candle, from £6, all Sainsbury’s

Continuing on from its summer success, this folksy, artisan-inspired look has taken an autumnal turn with richer colours and cosier textures. Focusing on the art of handmade, this popular trend celebrates global influences and is all about introducing a wholesome story to the home.

Get the look:

These loud prints are not for the faint-hearted and large floral designs should be used sparingly as a focal point in the room rather than all over. A bedding set or feature wallpaper is enough to make a style statement without looking overly busy and it can be teamed with dark furniture to complete the look.

 

Feature flooring

Mardi Gras 599 Sagres vinyl flooring, £15.99 per square metre, Carpetright

Patterned floors are back in a big way and whether you choose tiles, vinyl or carpet, it’s a great way to give any room an instant lift. Geometric patterns are a popular choice, and floor patterns inspired by Victorian or Edwardian designs are a great option for period properties that are in need of something in-keeping with their history.

Get the look:

Making the floor a feature works particularly well in smaller spaces as repeat patterns can look busy and distracting in larger rooms. If a bold pattern isn’t for you, embrace the trend in a subtler way by laying wood flooring or simple metro tiles in a herringbone layout—this will add interest without using an overload of colour or detail.

 

Winter florals

Star by Julien Macdonald duvet cover, £45; pillowcases, £20 for a pair; cushion, £28; pendant light, £300; Chester weave double headboard, £720; glamour nest of tables, £240, all Debenhams

Large, oversized flower prints take over from the ditsy designs of summer to introduce a bold and romantic alternative. Often found in dark colourways, look out for big, blousy florals that will bring a sense of drama and femininity to any room.

Colour-pop Scandi

Leigh wood base floor lamp with shade, £180; Morty three-seater sofa, £1,300; radius oak coffee table, £495; Byron rug, £450; patton five-level shelving unit, £395, all Habitat

The ever-popular Scandinavian-inspired look seems set to stick around for a while longer, only this season it’s had a colourful makeover. Still retaining its trademark features of clean lines, simplistic shapes and ergonomic designs, this style has seen an injection of colour to make it a bolder choice for your interior.

Get the look:

Choose furniture with an unfussy frame to embrace the original Scandi charm and then introduce splashes of bright colour through soft furnishings and accessories. A geometric colour-block rug will make a striking focal piece, but make sure to keep the look balanced by using wooden furniture and white walls as a backdrop.

 

Pretty in pink

Darcy dining table, £899; Darcy dining chairs, £399 for two; colour block knit throw, £49.50; Tribeca dinner plate, £4; medium nouveau lily vase, £15; fern in crackle pot, £49.50, all Marks & Spencer

Adding a little warmth to the usual autumn winter tones, this year sees dusky pink at the forefront of the high street trends. The soft palette also includes shades such as peach and light terracotta to offer a range for those who are not usually pink-lovers—you’ll be sure to find something to fit your style.

Get the look:

If this look seems a little intimidating, keep your styling pared back by teaming a few pink accent pieces with natural wood and neutral colours to avoid the room becoming sickly sweet. Brass tones work beautifully with this colour palette and will add a sense of opulence if you’re after a more luxurious finish. Alternatively, freshen up the shade by mixing in dove grey and mint green for a modern take that will see you into the spring summer season, too.
