Autumn Inspiration: Interior Trends To Try Now!

It’s pitch black when the alarm goes off, and there’s a definite chill in the air. Autumn is here! Although it’s sad to wave goodbye to long summer days and the odd glimpse of sunshine, the arrival of a new season is a chance to shake things up and embrace new looks. This is an ideal time of year to inject some seasonal inspiration into your interiors. If you’re planning a mini makeover or you’re looking for ideas to make your home cosy and snug ready for tumbling temperatures, here are some of the hottest autumn trends to try now.
Monochrome magic
Monochrome suits all seasons, but it’s particularly well suited to the cooler months. The good news is that this is a really easy trend to get right and there’s an abundance of decorative items and accessories you can buy. You can be as bold or subtle as you like and you can introduce patterns and prints to add interest if you don’t want to go all-out with the colour blocking. Take a look at sites like sashadebretton.com.au for ideas and inspiration and think about the size of the room and the style of your home. If you have small rooms, stick to white or pale grey walls and add darker touches with soft furnishings and ornaments like vases and photo frames. Modern homes suit laid-back Scandinavian and trendy New York loft styles while vintage and retro themes are ideal for traditional homes.
Natural touches
Autumn is a wonderful time of year to appreciate the beauty of the great outdoors, and this year, natural touches are all the rage. Think rattan furniture and bamboo rugs for garden rooms, driftwood candleholders for living rooms and bedrooms and crisp linen tablecloths for modern country kitchens. Add houseplants in woven baskets or wooden crates to complete the look.

Jewel tones
Autumn is usually associated with shades of red, gold and orange, but this season, jewel tones are a big hit in the glossy magazines. Think deep purple, opulent emerald and stunning sapphire blues. This trend works well with textures like velvet and satin, and it’s ideal if you’re looking to create a boutique hotel vibe in the bedroom or a quirky luxury bathroom. Keep accents subtle if you have bijou rooms to avoid making the space look cramped.
Winter florals
Florals are usually a hit in the spring and summer months, but winter florals are hitting the headlines this autumn/winter. Replace bright colours and country-style vintage prints for darker shades and romantic themes. Black, grey, green and blush pink are popular hues. Team with a chandelier for a whimsical Parisian style bedroom.
Autumn is here and what better excuse to treat your home to a revamp? If you’re looking for ideas to switch up your interiors and embrace some new trends, hopefully, this guide has given you food for thought.
