TOP INTERIOR TRENDS FOR A/W17
A new season brings with it new trends and A/W17 is no exception. This autumn/winter homeowners can expect a clash of fabrics, a sprinkling of bold prints and a splash of colour. Here at T J Hughes, we’ve put together the top interior trends for A/W17 that will ensure to give you inspiration when transforming your home this season.
For those of you who take to Pinterest for interior inspiration, you will have seen this trend on the horizon. Tropical prints; adding a fresh touch to your home this season with leaf prints such as palm or swiss cheese plant. Whether you want to make a dramatic impact with tropical wallpaper on a focal wall, or simply throw a couple of palm leave cushions on the sofa, or even add the real thing, there’s something to suit the look you want to create.
The industrial look is still having a moment in 2017, which is brilliant news for homeowners who want to save time and money on decorating. Exposed beams, bare brickwork and even plastered walls, this no-effort look is modern, stylish and not for the faint hearted. Don’t want to change the main aspects of your home? Don’t fret, simply add distressed accessories, like this clock, instead.
Scent For The Season
A new season doesn’t just affect the visual aspects of your home, it affects the senses too. As we move away from summer, fresh, clean cotton scents just won’t cut it. With the colder nights fast approaching we need something a little more comforting, something like this brown sugar and cinnamon candle, which will fill your home with a gorgeous sweet scent with indulging spices.
Interior colour trends are moving away from the simplistic white and grey, so if you’re craving more colour you’re in luck. The pantone colour of the year is green and with winter fast approaching this colour will not only ensure your house is bang-on-trend, but it’s a great seasonal transition colour too. Whether it’s mint, olive, or forest green, green is a rich shade that will add a touch of warmth to your home. Our experts advise to either apply this colour to key pieces like bedding or curtains, or to small touches like towels in the bathroom.
It’s time to say goodbye to copper and say hello to the new metal that’s having its moment; brass. Since brass is quite a powerful and statement colour, just like copper, the key is to introduce this material in subtle touches. For example, lovely brass photo frames, light shades, or even brass-inspired sequin cushions.
Crisp leaves, wooly knits and rubber wellies, autumn is all about textures so it makes sense that they translate from your wardrobe to your home. Velvet is luxurious, soothing and welcoming, and when combined with smooth metals or rustic fabrics, it not only adds visual interest but cosiness too. Either go all out with a full-on velvet chair, or stick to your budget with crushed velvet curtains.
Whether you’re decorating, or fancy vamping up your home for the new season, we’d love to hear what interior ideas you’ve got planned and what A/W trends you’re loving.
