Most Popular Interior Design Trends for Fall Winter 2018
Navy is the hottest color this season, old made pinks are back and, hey there gold carpet! It's that time of year where the glossy new trends for autumn and winter appear, so we've compiled our top for you to peruse prior to the temperature starts to drop.
Rich tones, color blocks, a touch of black and big flouncy florals are exactly what's to come this fall and winter. Listed below we reveal you the best ways to develop these amazing patterns in your home this coming season.
Fans of grayscale will love this pattern. It's all about the devices - and they need to be black. But if you're not a massive fan of big amounts of black you can make this trend work using little blocks here and there. Like this beautiful beaded pendant, console and shelving system. Integrate this look with tactile pieces and white to stabilize it out.
Although we had gold as a pattern back in spring/summer, it's still quite here and you're going to see much more of it this season! So how about utilizing it in a various form instead of as an accessory? Yes, that's right - GOLD carpet, and isn't it amazing, particularly with this Mid-Century modern-day furniture?
ALL THE PINKS
Dirty, old fashioned pinks are all the rage for autumn which is an ideal remedy to the usual rusty tones we see, and as it's such an easy-on-the-eye color it's easy to apply to our homes. We asked Karen Thomas, head of style in the house at Marks & Spencer to explain this pattern: 'Adding heat and color to your house, these tones will work particularly well along with metallic, modern greys and the new age of darker neutrals. If you're feeling vibrant, go for statement upholstery in lively pink velour or for a more downplayed look try painterly florals and layer textures and materials to add interest.'
This is a mix of different aspects that develops a gorgeous and easy look with the emphasis on natural-looking furniture. As Kate Butler, head of design at Habitat, discusses: 'Here there's been a concentrate on removed woods, wood grain and a return to easy, natural patinas and products within furniture.' Group this with gently patterned dishware, soft grey chairs and a neutral block colored textured rug to complete this relaxing pattern.
This is an actually beautiful pattern - who doesn't enjoy flower prints and on a large scale? Watch out for big blousy designs that have a pre-Raphaelite design and you'll discover them on cushions, bedding and as murals (revealed here). Keep the remainder of the appearance basic, so the florals become the star and pick out crucial colors to accessories with.
TACTILE COOKING AREAS
Kitchen areas are undergoing a change, nor are they just all about one style of systems, a worktop and a complementary splash back. This brand-new and exciting pattern is everything about mixing it up - various textures sat beside each other, contrasting in both color and touch. 'A sleek quartz work surface with an integrated solid wood chopping board or dark cabinetry against a clean marbled splash back, makes for an eye-catching space, and one that has lots of character,' says Daniela Condominium, designer at Life Kitchens.
Navy is the BIG color for these coming seasons, mild on the eye yet moody enough to be ideal for the cold weather - you're visiting it all over. Here, it's been teamed with gold and this wallpaper is inspired by sashiko, a kind of functional embroidery from Japan that uses geometric stitching to repair areas of worn clothes. Keep accessories simple and let this amazing wallpaper be the centerpiece of your room.
SCANDI GOES VINTAGE
Think Scandi integrated with nostalgic styles from Sainsbury's product packaging archives and this is the attractive result, as Andrew Tanner, style manager at Sainsbury's Home explains 'This brand-new dining range stimulates 1950's fond memories with a modern Scandinavian edge, and embodies the excitement and post-war boom of the age. Upgraded with a yellow and deep aqua blue color palette, this collection is an essential to bring a dynamic pop of color to the dining table, developed to be blended and matched for casual, vintage design.' Group it with pale blond wood furnishings so the design sings out and keep the styling simple.
Lively and filled with color, this pattern is definitely a pleased one. Keep an eye out for bold tones in different shapes - stripes, geometrical, areas and blocks and you can't fail. Pop everything together and you'll have this trend spot on. Lois Vincent, home designer at Home of Fraser, says: 'Its style DNA lies in its mix and match of graphic geos, strong colors and tidy lines. Running through all of it is a confidence to clash not match. The only guideline? Make it modern-day.'
With everyone investing more and more time on social media, there's a move towards more conscious and folk-inspired handcrafted homewares. Having pieces that feel excellent will be essential; tufted rugs, ornamental quilts and rattan lampshades, as revealed here, will all be popular. There's a requirement for textures that produce interest aesthetically whilst maintaining a cozy feel to assist us through those darker months.
