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.

colder months is something that we can all enjoy. It’s a great opportunity to

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

fabrics can be used to great effect in our autumnal homes. A big trend this

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
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.
