A/W Design Trends for 2019

It’s that time of year again when some trends stay but new ones emerge. As we are near the end of daylight savings, it’s time to start thinking of the Autumn/Winter trends for 2019/2020. If you’re tempted to update your home – rather than change entirely – here are a few hot trends for this season.

Sustainability has been a hot topic for a while now but even more so in the last year. More and more people are swapping out their furniture for more sustainable and recycled materials. Although it may be hard to make a complete swap with everything you own, you can make small swaps here and there from recycled rugs, glass, metal or bamboo water bottles or 100% cotton fabrics for throws, duvets and cushions. By making these small changes you can help ease your carbon footprint on the environment and look good doing it.

As predicted by the ‘all-mighty’ Pinterest, Yellow would be a huge hit this year. And they were right. We are seeing different shades of yellow everywhere. From pastels to rich mustards. Theses hues have been seen all over from the runway to the high streets and homes. It’s a fantastic colour that doesn’t require a huge long-term commitment. If you are wanting to incorporate some brightness into your home this A/W you can with your accessories such as throws, pillows, linen and even floral arrangements.   

Some other popular colours this season are cherry red, burgundy, peach, browns and oranges. You can incorporate these colours into almost anything in your home from kitchen accessories to soft furnishings such as faux furs, knits, throws and cushions. If you're feeling bold enough you could even paint your walls a warm colour to tie the room together giving it a warm feel.

It’s been a while, but velvet is back and has taken interiors and fashion by storm. Velvet is a versatile product where it not only looks good in an industrial home in the city but also works well in a cosy cottage in the country. With its super soft and swish look, it has been creeping up onto everyone’s must-have list this year. Originally made from silk, the makers of velvet have now caught up with the times and can make it from almost any fibre making it more accessible. If you are wanting this look, try adding a velvet footstall, rug or cushions to your living room or bedroom.

Serene Scandinavian interiors are here to stay for at least another year or so. Being such a flexible style, it is easy to keep it fresh each season with new accessories. For such a simple look it can make a huge impact. This ever-popular look can be paired up with different textiles to give your interiors depth and warmth. While last year we saw global-inspired patterns, this year we are seeing more simple and understated patterns.

On top of the Scandinavian themed interiors, we are seeing a lot of house plants added into homes for a fresh feel. House plants not only look great against a neutral background, but they also bring many health benefits into your home. We are also seeing these tropical prints on fabric and wallpapers. By adding these jade greens, soft yellows and pinks into your interiors your home will have that fresh feeling this season. It will feel like summer all year round.
