Now that the nights are drawing in, let’s take a look at what’s trending in the interior world to help make your autumn-winter nights the cosiest they can be.
The laid back 70’s style of natural materials and earthy tones has made a comeback in 2022, and pairs beautifully with the rich tones of autumn colours outside. Warmth emanates from this style using earthy browns, terracotta reds and oranges. When finished off with soft lighting, it creates a cosy room perfect for a winter’s evening.
If you prefer a simpler palette, warm neutrals come into their own as we approach the colder winter months, using accent pieces or furnishings to finish the room. Cool whites and greys are giving way to creams and even beige. By keeping your colour palette simpler, you can create a space that is calm and cocoon-like. Light browns are a popular neutral choice which is brighter during the day and becomes warm in the evening. Choose a few choice accessories and use your window dressing material to finish the room off perfectly.
These colours again link back to the broader trend of using nature as your inspiration, so for something bolder consider the greens – especially sage and olive green, or turn to your furnishings for a flash of colour such as botanical wallpaper or curtains. There’s also a welcome return of adding bold patterns in your home combined with cheerful colours, making your space feel brighter and more vibrant. Consider your choice of blind or curtain fabric to help solidify the look you want to achieve – that’s why we have countless new fabric designs for you to browse through to perfectly fit your aspirations!
Finally, the timeless black now has a new competitor – brown! Chocolate brown brings a warm, earthy tone and neutral elegance, bringing a cosiness to your room with its natural palette. Consider combining browns with a neutral cream background or using materials such as stone, leather, rattan or linen to add to that nature-inspired theme such as for your furniture or window dressings. Who wouldn’t want their room to feel like a nice warm hug when you return from a busy day?
