This autumn, introducing some dark accessories into your blank-canvas space is super trendy. Warm neutrals like cream and beige are the perfect background; light-toned sofas, curtains and walls really cosy up your home while utilising natural light. Black accents are great at breaking this warmth and creating a modern space, and adding in some dark metals and wood brings in different textures to make your home sleek yet snug.
This trend is inspired by nature and tranquillity. Soft textures and organic shapes in the home create a soothing atmosphere that allows you to be as comfortable as possible. The delicate vibe is simple to achieve, but really fashionable; layering blankets or rugs keep your home feeling warm and comfy all year round while adding in a curved sofa makes a statement with ease. Combining smooth shapes, textures and materials build a relaxing ambience, as your space is transformed into nature’s retreat.
Jewel Toned Velvet
Deep jewel shades have been super popular this year, and there’s no sign of them disappearing over the cooler months. Mixing emerald, amethyst and sapphire adds opulence to any room, just by incorporating a sofa or a few cushions. Velvet upholstery is trendy and versatile; whether you opt for matt, crushed, or deep pile, you can really put your own spin on this elegant trend.
Wood is going to be one of the most popular materials in 2020. It is so versatile, and with a range of colours, textures and finishes, the interior possibilities are endless. Following on from the popular Scandinavian trend, wood remains minimalist, natural and makes your home feel light and airy. Even more interesting is how it is going to be uniquely incorporated into the home this Autumn/Winter; wooden structures, windows, and walls take centre stage as this material is reimagined on a larger scale.
This palette really builds on Pantone’s colour of the year ‘Living Coral’; warmer for the cooler months, but still fun and energetic. Terracotta, pumpkin and burnt oranges brighten up any room to create a sunny atmosphere, and the theme of nature continues on in this trend, as desert sunset colours prove to be the most popular. Whether you want a pop of colour in an all-white room with some orange accessories, or would rather a rustic bedroom with dark wood and burnt copper, these warm oranges are beautifully versatile.
All black kitchens may seem intimidating at first, but they are ultra-modern and so gorgeous. Charcoal kitchens pack a punch; by combining statement cabinets, walls and floors the heart of your home will be lavish and opulent. Whether you pick a glossy or matte finish, and gold or silver accents, the end result will always look so sophisticated. If you’re overwhelmed by the dark side, then adding in some black tiles and taps to a white kitchen creates a monochromatic space that is still light and luxurious.
Traditional farmhouse interior is a big trend of Autumn/Winter this year. Brown leather, exposed wood, and plaid print are familiar and authentic, and these homely vibes are back. This season, it’s all about vamping up the charm and character, and by bringing in pastel colours like pale pink or duck-egg green or some quirky farmyard inspired accessories, you will definitely spruce up the tradition. Metal handles and a warm colour palette are also great elements to freshen up the rustic trend.
Pantone’s Galaxy Blue, Bluestone, and Evening Blue are all reminiscent of the sky and sea, so create tranquil vibes throughout your home. The palette is warm as well as wintry, so whether you prefer a soft and cosy room or a clean and crisp space, these blue hues are the colours for you.
