Autumn Interior Design Trends to Look Out For This Year

It's officially September. So, yes, that means we're getting excited about autumn now. Sorry summer, your time's up. And we think it's pretty justified considering autumn is basically the shortest season! To celebrate this cosy time, we've rounded up the most intriguing autumn interior design trends we're expecting to see this year. If you're also a fan of autumn, this will be right up your street. Let's get stuck into it!

Summer was all about bright colours, embellishments, texture and tropical print. We saw plenty of house plants, clashing patterns and beading. Whilst these trends will probably stick around for a while, it's time to make things a little cosier. Here are our favourite autumn interior design tips:

1. Dark, mysterious blue

We're almost talking about navy here. Darker colours always come to life in the colder months but dark blue is set to be hot right from the start of autumn. It's been all about rich hues all year really, so we're not surprised. Don't fret if you don't want to re-paint your entire living room, just add in a few accessories to get the look. Navy throws and velvet blue cushions are the perfect accomplice to this trend.

2. Brass and gold

Is it cliche to that metallics are in? They've been massive this summer, especially when it comes to mixing different types of metals. However, as the leaves turn a warmer colour, so does the interior design world's favourite metallics. We're expecting to see a lot of brass and gold dotted around living rooms, bedrooms and even kitchens. Think candle holders, cutlery, placemats and small coffee tables. Any chance you get to add in an accent of brass and gold is going to turn your room into an autumnal fashion haven. Mixing with the navy trend is going to be pretty big, too.

3. Big, sweeping Florals

The intricate botanical prints of spring and summer are making way for something bigger, something bolder and something much more dramatic. Big, sweeping florals are going to be everywhere this autumn, not just in interior design but fashion, too. And the great thing about this trend? You can achieve it by treating yourself to a bunch of flowers. It really is that simple. But if you want to go bigger, why not consider a feature wallpaper or lampshade?

4. Scandinavian is here to stay

Can we get a round of applause, please? You'll all be pleased to know that the concepts of hygge and Scandi cool are here to stay. It's the best news we've heard all year - we're so ready to dig out the candles and chunky knit blankets again! Perhaps it's best to say that we Brits have officially adopted the Scandinavian way when it comes to autumn and winter. After all, who could resist? We're expecting to see plenty of Eames-style furniture, clean lines and warm lighting. Count us in.

5. Spruce up your houseplants

You don't have to say goodbye to your houseplants now that the colder months are rolling in. We've seen plenty of plants in autumn interior design - the contrast of cosiness and fresh greenery works particularly well. But if you're dying to make things feel a bit more seasonal, try adding pinecones and maple leaves to your bouquet arrangements. Alternatively, go for plant pots in autumnal colours like gold, orange and red... or buy flowers that match this season's colour palette.
