When the leaves start to fall and we know autumn is on its way, there’s only one thing we want, for summer to stay! As autumn fast approaches more of us begin to welcome family and friends back into our homes, and after spending months indoors quarantining during lockdown, a little home refresh wouldn’t hurt.
For the many who have spent months staring at the same rooms and décor, the promise of approaching the autumn and winter seasons could indicate the perfect time to transform your home into a sanctuary where you’ll feel comfortable with a sense of positivity. While your space should be a beautiful reflection of your character, it’s a good idea to borrow inspiration from your favourite interior designers - introducing some new colour, styling or interior features to your home is the perfect way to make your place cosy for the cooler months. Get ahead of the interiors game with the latest seasonal styles and start planning your next project with these stylish trends in mind.
Designers are drawing inspiration from around the globe for eclectic chic. This trend works well in any home; it combines different shapes, textures and colours like cinnamon, caramel and terracotta. These colours immediately add a warmer touch to any interior, but if you don’t feel like repainting the walls, no worries, you can achieve a great result by replacing some cushions and textiles. Bring a global influence into your home to express your love for travel and different cultures, then embrace this trend and incorporate various world-inspired pieces into your space. It’s all about putting together mismatched furniture, accessories and artwork with different (or even clashing) colour, pattern and detail. Look for texture and subtle variation in tone-on-tone. Patterns are a little more abstract with unexpected colour combinations.
Want to try something different from usual prints and posters? Consider buying a handmade piece of textile art to be hung alone on a focal point. For a really original result, you could also try a statement rug with a bold graphical pattern, we are experiencing a renaissance in tribal area rugs and this is for sure a timeless decorating trend.

A recurring trend that is popular every autumn/winter is that classic country look, which suits any style of property. Inspired by the beauty of nature, cosy country showcases the important role sustainable and natural materials can have within a space. A fusion of natural elements, sustainable materials, and darker hues is all about creating a cosy haven to relax in at the end of a busy day. Incorporating materials like wood and rattan will not only add character to your home but also help bring the beauty of the great outdoors in. A stylish colour story this coming season is going to be sage greens and earthy tones, which complements wood and other natural materials perfectly.

Urban Oasis is moody, dramatic, romantic, and reflective. This Autumn trend embraces eclectic extravagance, tapping into a warm and welcoming colour palette — which is great for those of you who aren't afraid of experimenting with vibrant hues. Let your sanctuary speak of dreamy late nights with pleasantly deep purples; of romantic mauve and pink who whisper things of fairy tales. Pinks and Purples may not be the first autumnal colours that spring to mind, but they are reminiscent of a shepherds delight sky - turning your home into a unique urban oasis. Delicate and chalky or pastel shades of pink that represent a sense of tranquillity will continue to be a popular decorative choice in British homes as we approach the colder months - when paired with deeper contrasting hues, pink can be given the grown-up glow-up it deserves, in any space of the home that you desire. Our Persian Overdyed Rug collection merges perfectly into this design setting.

The UK's love affair with Scandinavian style has certainly picked up momentum in recent years. Scandi fusion is about to become your new favourite take on minimalism - intertwining modern and traditional Scandi style with minimalist influences. This trend embraces ethereal surroundings with low furniture, neutral hues, natural material, and lots of sheer fabrics that soften the daylight. Vibrant geometric prints, playful textures, and, of course, wood are at the forefront of the Scandi Fusion design trend. This trend emphasises the importance of creating function-driven spaces defined by a handful of statement pieces rather than an abundance of décor. Accent pieces focus on comfort; they rely on items such as plush Beni Ourain rugs, bountiful throw pillows, and cosy blankets to give their interiors a homey feel. Trust us when we say this trend is everything that you’ve been waiting for.
