Other trends mark a quite welcomed coming back. So, here is the offer for the season:
- Woodland retreat
This look is emblematic for the shift of the seasons as it focuses on the colours and textures of autumn – plum, russet, damson, hues of berries and barks. If knitting is your love now it’s the perfect time to display all you have. The aim is to create a cozy retreat where you can feel sheltered and relaxed. The fabrics to look for your decoration are knits and linens and hewn wood is the main material for your furniture.
- New Nordic
If you want style without too much effort the New Nordic trend is the one that you should opt for this autumn. The colour palette is influenced by the Scandinavian way of living and opts for muted nuances such as canvas white, lavender, blush pink. The materials that best complement the overall look are ash or bleached wood, earthenware and buff leather.
- Global nomad
A more eclectic approach to your home décor this autumn includes a mixture of patterns and textures. The global nomad takes home authentic usually handcrafted items to create an atmosphere where you can feel secluded and hibernate in the autumn days. From cushions to wall art the trend is dominated by ochre, umber and spiced red colours while the preferred materials are rope, woven materials and earthenware.
- Luxe revival
For luxe lovers this autumn is the perfect time to add a touch of decadence. Statement lightning and furniture is combined with luxury materials such as brass, marble and velvet to recreate that perfect look you are striving for.
