Seasonal Updates for the Home – Autumn Winter 2018

Dark nights, chilly temperatures and scraping the ice from my car – I think it’s safe to say that I’m feeling fairly wintery. So much so that I’ve started thinking about those warming, winter accessories that can turn your home into a snug and cosy retreat.

While I opt for seasonal updates through carefully selected and cleverly placed accessories, I have had a little browse at the latest interior trends for Autumn Winter 2018. So, I thought I’d put together a few of my seasonal favourites, you know, just in case you wanted to redesign your interior and were looking for a teensy bit of on-trend inspiration.

Dark, brooding tones

Although I tend to stick to neutrals and use accessories to inject a seasonally appropriate shade, if you’re brave enough and looking for a more radical update, select dark, sultry tones.

Seductive and brooding, designers are coveting deep grey, heather and rich mocha shades, with moody feature walls and luxurious sofas.


Play with textures

When getting my interior ready for a new season, texture is ALWAYS one of my go-to edits (and my ultimate décor hack), as even in small doses, I can really see the difference they make.

I hear you asking, ‘What are the must-have textures this winter?’ Well, there’s a bit of a selection, including sumptuous velvet, dark and rich wood, as well as luxurious gold.


Go flamboyant with florals

I tend to think of flowers as a spring update, introducing invigorating colours and new life into the home. But this winter, florals have gone a bit more dramatic and over the top feel.

If you want to run with this trend, a large-scale floral wall mural will certainly steal the limelight. Or scatter flower-printed cushions and a floral lamp shade will provide a subtle approach.

A touch of pink

A little like marmite, I think pink can be a bit of a divisive colour. And to choose pink for your interior, you REALLY have to love it. That being said, in contrast to those dark shades, pink is THE choice of colour this season – again, who’d have thought pink, for winter?!

However, you can forget those pale pastels or vibrant bubble gum tones because sophisticated shades are in vogue. It’s all about warm magenta, rose and raspberry.


Nordic is here to stay

With my neutral interior, Scandinavian styles are perfect, as they create a calm and stylish backdrop. And guess what? I’m not the only one who thinks so, as a Nordic interior is SO on-trend  this season.

To renovate in this style, think pale wooden furniture, as well as natural rugs and throws, for a bright, light and cosy home.


I hope this post has given you some interior inspiration to style your interior for Autumn Winter 2018. Let me know which ideas you love in the comments section below!
