While the tem­per­a­ture may be drop­ping as au­tumn ar­rives, there’s no need to feel the chill in­doors. The sea­son’s three hottest new decor trends are rich with glow­ing colour, pat­tern and de­tail, and we can’t wait to try them. Deep moody blue shades and a fo­cus on tex­ture and lux­ury come to­gether for this op­u­lent trend.

“Mid­night Trop­ics sees the sum­mery trop­i­cal theme con­tinue and de­velop through­out the au­tumn and win­ter,” says Clotilde Pas­salac­qua, in­te­rior de­sign leader, Ikea.

“In­stead of fea­tur­ing bright and play­ful colours, this trend pairs rich, dark tones – such as navy and emer­ald green – with ac­cents of brass and gold, to cre­ate an ex­otic and lux­u­ri­ous look with a touch of op­u­lence. Ac­ces­soris­ing with suc­cu­lents and trop­i­cal plants is key, as is art­work and pat­terns that take their cue from na­ture, and in par­tic­u­lar, fea­ture fo­liage.”

Many ma­jor home brands have em­braced this luxe look, in­clud­ing Marks & Spencer with its Man­hat­tan col­lec­tion ( main im­age). It has a rich pal­ette of inky matte black and brass ac­cents, and is in­spired by the op­u­lence of New York’s lux­ury ho­tels, with de­tails in­clud­ing soft vel­vets and green mar­ble, mixed with bold mono­chrome fur­ni­ture. A berry- hued pal­ette of blue­berry, cherry, deep plum and pur­ple, paired with de­signs fea­tur­ing lush blooms, is a chic, sea­sonal way to in­ter­pret the fash­ion­ably botan­i­cal trend.

“This sea­son our collections draw in­spi­ra­tion from the hum­ble tulip bulb that be­came more pre­cious than gold and five times more ex­pen­sive than a house. It’s a bulb that went on to in­spire gen­er­a­tions,” says Tri­cia Guild, founder and cre­ative di­rec­tor, De­sign­ers Guild.
