Top 5 interior design trends for Autumn Winter 2021
As we say goodbye to Summer, we welcome Autumn and Winter with cosy, open arms. But which interior trends are in this year? As the Rug Gurus, we’ve been working hard to bring you the very latest interior design trends for AW21, and you’ll be pleased to know this list contains the seasonal classics we all know and love. It’s safe to say we’ve had enough disruption over the last couple of years, so let’s stick with the home comforts.
1. Burnt Orange
Spice up your space with this timeless Autumnal hue, reminiscent of all things cosy. From pumpkin carving, cinnamon spiced goodies and crunching freshly fallen leaves, the warm tones of orange pair well with existing decor due to its neutral undertones. Use this transitional shade between the vibrant lemon tones of Summer and the deep, rich red hues of Winter.
2. Mixed Textures
When styling for the colder months, we’re inherently searching for one thing and one thing only, warmth! Layering soft textures and luxurious materials may sound like a cluttered mess, but this maximalism inspired trend is sure to add that much needed depth to your home. Think shaggy and long pile rugs for texture, then incorporate some crushed velvet, fringe tassels and chunky knits for that warm and cosy ambience you desire.
"With the colder months upon us, cosy textiles are a great way to save on heating, being both a sustainable and stylish update," Clotilde Passalacqua, Interior Design Manager, IKEA UK and Ireland
3. Emerald Green
Freshen up your interior with notes of deep, velvety green. Reminiscent of Christmas trees, holly leaves and mistletoe, this jewelled hue is a must have for your Winter palette. This chic and sophisticated hue pairs incredibly well with wooden furniture for a rustic, biophilic feel. Or perhaps add gold details to enhance the indulgence of this rich hue and to create an art deco inspired look.
Your home is a work of art, so why not decorate it with fascinating, antique pieces that truly make a statement. Soft, inviting and intricate in detail, vintage styling adds unrivalled grandeur to your space with its rich colours and elegant designs. Pair character-embodied vintage pieces with monochromatic furniture to create a dramatic accent to your cosy Autumn/Winter space.
5. Silver Details
Unleash your inner Mrs Hinch and elevate neutral spaces with a luxurious touch of silver. A timeless Christmas classic, the sparkly and silky tones of silver are enough to add opulence and brighten up small, dark rooms. Warm up cold spaces with a shimmery, silver shag rug or drape a silver crushed velvet piece across your floor for extra indulgence. Ideal for modern interiors, this metallic favourite pairs beautifully with blue tones to create a sleek, Winter palette.
