Upcoming Interior Design Trends A/W
2018

With Autumn and Winter slowly creeping up on us, it’s time to rethink those pastel colours and fresh designs. Upcoming trends dictate that darker hues and cosy furniture will be the way forward in the coming months, think traditional décor matched with Skylight Window for extra light.  Below are some of the hottest trends that bloggers and magazines alike are highlighting at the moment.

Moody Florals

In the past, this trend has taken shape in the way of small floral print wallpapers, or printed curtains. Now, the floral trend means business. Think huge floral bouquets on your wall. Whether painted freely or stencilled , this trends looks to be one of the hot topics of the upcoming A/W season.

Black is the new Black

The summer trend of light greys and marble have made way for blacks and granite. This trend is definitely for the bold, but if you’re wanting to rock the black trend in coming months, why no try some black accents, such as ornaments, prints, and throw cushions?

Moody Hues

Baby pink will never go out of style, but in recent months, pink has turned to the dark side…Dusty, old fashioned, almost Victorian shades of pink have been emerging the interior design world, which bodes well for the upcoming A/W season. Darker shades of pink compliment grey and metallic tones, which adds a bold aspect to any décor. Pair this trend with wooden venetian blinds for that perfect mix of tradition and bold modern.

Think Toast

Yep. Toast. Fast becoming the shade of the season, Toast is a mixture of beige and brown, and looks ultra modern chic in a traditional décor sense. Paired with bare brick and house plants, I imagine this trend will take off in the next year.

Velvet Crush

Crushed velvet will never go out of style (I hope I don’t regret writing that any time soon). The material makes any décor pop, and I’m starting to see some new colours popping into A/W trends that I think will really work with the crush velvet material. Golden Lime, Tawny Port and Burnt Orange will look perfect as statement pieces in a room, either as a sofa or standalone chair.
