Every new season brings amazing trends, providing the ideal opportunity for a little home sprucing. Spring and summer saw an influx of warm pastel shades, nature inspired decoration and Scandinavian influences. But for autumn and winter this year, it’s all about a mix of textures, deep colours and amazing prints – perfect for unwinding on cold, dark nights!

However, when it comes to seasonal trends, it can be hard to find furniture that complements mix new styles. To help, here are autumn/winters best interior trends and must have furniture.

Tons of Texture

This season it’s all about texture. It’s absolutely everywhere from sofas and rugs, to furniture and accessories. The key for autumn/winter 2015 is an eclectic mix. Don’t be afraid to select a wide variety, including faux fur, rope, rattan, linen and knits. If you want to start out small, the easiest way to implement this trend is through textured accessories. Or go all out with wooden panel inspired wallpaper, or an oversized textured headboard.

Geometric Prints

Bold and beautiful, geometric prints are a great way to quickly update any room, as they have such a huge impact – this season’s preferred design is monochrome. If you’re unsure how to use print, then you may be tempted to steer clear, but there are so many easy ways to utilise them. Hang geometric printed curtains, add small touches with scatter cushions or a piece of art, go bold with a rug, or if you’re feeling creative, reupholster a chair or sofa.

Mid Century Modern

Mid Century design has been a popular trend over the last couple of seasons, but for autumn and winter, it’s taken on a whole new identity. For example, the Mid Century sofa has evolved from simple beige or grey tones to a more edgy vibe with bright 70s inspired oranges and blues, and irresistible tweeds and leathers. Sideboards are another key piece of furniture this season, as they’re perfect for introducing the clean lines associated with this trend.

Bold and Blue

Winter’s must have interior design colour is blue. But forget pastel shades, the colour of the moment is dark yet warm – think bright navies, deep inky tones and luxurious royal blues. If you don’t want to paint an entire feature wall in such a bold tone, then there other ways to use it. As well as soft furnishings and accessories, you could upcycle an old cabinet with blue paint, or create a statement coffee table using blue fabric.

Mix Your Metallics

If you like a bit of glamour, then you’re in luck this season. Infusing a sense of warmth and luxury, metallics are a hot trend this winter. There are so many small ways to use gold tones that can create huge impact, including door handles, taps, photo frames and curtain rails. Or if you want to be a little more bold, buy a gold coloured woven rug, choose a statement glass and gold table, or select multi tonal metallic bedding.
