3 Of The Best Autumn Trends
It’s that time of year where the shiny new trends for autumn and winter appear, so here at The Beautiful Wardrobe Company, we have compiled our top 3 for you to peruse before the temperature starts to drop.
Rich tones, colour blocks, a touch of black and big flouncy florals are what’s to come this autumn and winter. Below we show you how to create these exciting trends in your home this coming season.
Navy is the BIG colour for these coming seasons, gentle on the eye yet moody enough to be perfect for the winter months – you’re going to see it everywhere. Here, it’s been teamed with gold and this wallpaper is inspired by sashiko, a form of functional embroidery from Japan that uses geometric stitching to mend areas of worn clothes. Keep accessories simple and let this dazzling wallpaper be the focal point of your room.
With all of us spending more and more time on social media, there’s a move towards more conscious and folk-inspired handcrafted homewares. Having pieces that feel great will be key; tufted rugs, decorative quilts and rattan lampshades, as shown here, will all be popular. There’s a need for textures that create interest visually whilst retaining a cosy feel to help us through those darker months.

Dusty, old fashioned pinks are all the rage for autumn which is a perfect antidote to the usual rusty tones we see, and as it’s such an easy-on-the-eye colour it’s simple to apply to our homes. We asked Karen Thomas, head of design at Home at Marks & Spencer to explain this trend:
‘Adding warmth and colour to your home, these tones will work especially well alongside metallic, contemporary greys and the new wave of darker neutrals. If you’re feeling bold, go for statement upholstery in vibrant pink velvet or for a more understated look try painterly florals and layer textures and fabrics to add interest.’
