I love this time of year. Cosy nights in snuggled up on the sofa, lighting a fire and enjoying a glass of wine at home with friends. As we head towards the colder seasons (here in the UK) I like to add a few different ‘on trend’ accessories in my home that reflect the change. This year there are some beautiful trends in soft furnishings and accessories for your home around, and I can’t wait to share, just a few of them with you today. The first big trend I’ve noticed is colour. Gone is the obsession with neutrals and white everywhere in our home, interiors have finally fully embraced colour with the darkest inky blues and black, luxurious dark greens and pale pretty blush.
If you are looking at changes to the living room, how about colourful cushions and blankets for the sofa. I’m loving this seasons hot colours, my favourite being dark sultry and forest greens. So as the leaves move away from green outside, we are bringing that very colour to our homes. Think texture like velvets and faux fur and mixing them up together.
Velvet fabric is huge at the moment, especially for sofas and chairs. Choosing to add velvet in soft furnishings is a nod at that trend without the expense of having to buy new expensive furniture. I find we spend more time at home this time of year, as lots of friends and family come to visit too. Something like these floor cushions to add extra seating in velvet would be a great addition too.
Oversized prints are another thing that you can add simply to your decor with accessories, think wall murals, lampshades, rugs and curtains, or even wallpaper if you are looking for something totally immersive.
Dramatic over sized combos in opulent colourways, give a modern twist to what are usually traditional patterns. They also work particularly well if coupled with a dramatic dark backdrop.
Woven Fabrics are another big trend that you can add to a room in accessories. I love the character and rustic warmth that woven textiles add to a room, particularly in colder seasons. Hanging basket pendant lights as a focal point, or plants in wicker plant pots. The rougher texture works well with the velvet I mentioned earlier too as well as the smooth metal accents of brass.
