Autumn's top interior trends

Now that we're well on the way to the heart of the autumn season, I thought it would be fun to look ahead and see what interior design trends are currently sweeping our nation.

Autumn is a great time to have a look at your home and see how you can make it cosier for the cold winter months ahead. So here are some top trends that I've found from across the internet.

The theme of making our homes into a safe haven from the colder months is something that we can all enjoy. It's a great opportunity to embrace some rustic themes that have become increasingly trendy in the interior design world.

Animal themes such as stags and rabbits seem to be making a big impression in creating the atmosphere of the wonderfully vibrant Scottish countryside. And similarly, the power of tartan has also reintroduced Scottish themes with the rich colours and patterns giving our homes the perfect autumnal twist. In particular, this tartan bedlinen from Libeco gives the bedroom a wonderfully cost feel.

It's not just tartan that can show how textures and fabrics can be used to great effect in our autumnal homes. A big trend this season is to use a range of contrasting textures to provide a welcoming and carefully thrown-together feel.

This wonderfully chic apartment gathers the perfect selection of textures such as cashmere, cotton and even straw to provide that welcoming and interesting interior style. And it's not just soft furnishings that can benefit from this approach as even the humble bed can be given a textural uplift. If you're looking for inspiration, then Bedstar's upholstered beds feature some beautifully soft materials such as linen and chenille that are able to take advantage of on-trend colours such as calming blues and modernist stone.

But whilst it can be tempting to keep adding layers of textures, you don't want your home to become overly fussy. Having contrasting materials overlap is a good way to build up a theme, but remember that the minimalist Scandinavian trend is showing no signs of slowing down.

It's a good failsafe option if you're stuck for where to take your interiors next. Having a good clear out, and embracing the simple themes of clean white walls, wooden furniture, and a few modern art prints is a great alternative way to embrace the brand new season.

What are you looking forward to adding to your home this autumn?
