From summer to autumn: top interior design trends 2019


Back

Moving from the sweltering heat to cooler evenings can be difficult. But with our top autumn interior design trends for 2019, you can make sure your home’s ready for the season’s arrival.

Get your bedroom ready for autumn

Although we enjoyed plenty of hot, sunny days this summer, at night the heat caused quite a stir. With the arrival of cooler evenings, it’s time to swap out the lighter duvet for the thicker one again. Changing your bedding will immediately get your bedroom ready for autumn.

Play around with the thickness, colour and texture of your bedding to create a room that’s perfect for the autumn months. Adding earthy tones to your room – such as terracotta, copper or a sandy beige – will instantly give it a more autumnal vibe.

Accessorise with autumnal pieces

With the arrival of autumn comes cosy nights, huddled up on the sofa with a cup of tea and a good book. So why not accessorise your home to compliment the season? Decorate tables with a spiced scented candle or a textured ceramic vase with orange flowers. Accessorising is an easy way to transition from summer to autumn, without having to redecorate.

Have fun playing around with different accessories. If you like to go all-out during autumn, why not dot a few decorative pumpkins around the home. Or add a wreath of autumnal flowers for an alternative interior design trend.

Textures are key for the season

Another autumn interior design trend is adding soft textures to any room. Blankets, throws and cushions are an easy way of making your home cosy, and come in an array of colours and textures.

This interior design trend not only includes soft textures, but can also include more natural ones. Wicker baskets, wooden candle holders and dried flowers are natural textures that add autumnal flair to any home. Keep the colours neutral so that they blend with your current colour schemes.

Add hints of autumnal colours around the home

Autumn is all about deep, rich colours such as orange and dark green. Taking inspiration from the change in trees, add touches of these colours around your home for a real autumnal feel.

Velvet furniture is sticking around as a trend for now, so a dark green velvet chair, sofa or cushion could be a great addition to your home this season. With an additional orange accessory, it’s a colour clash which certainly works.

Autumn is all about celebrating what the season has to offer, whether that’s with food or colour schemes. Make the most of the season by experimenting with different textures, accessories and making small changes to your home.
