Our homes have a dra­matic ef­fect on our mood and spirit, so in­vest­ing in their vis­ual ap­peal makes per­fect sense.

This time of year, when de­sign­ers and stores re­lease their new col­lec­tions, is a per­fect op­por­tu­nity to track trends – and em­brace them if you’re in the mood for a com­plete makeover, or sim­ply shake up your scheme with some smart buys.

This isn’t a sea­son for the faint-hearted. Ex­pect dark tones and glit­tery metallics, a style gar­den of dark blooms, and a twist on tra­di­tion with dark green “gen­tle­men’s club” style set­tings, which make a grand back­drop for care­fully cho­sen fur­ni­ture pieces.

If that all sounds a lit­tle too rich for your decor pal­ette, go for more sub­tle in­ter­pre­ta­tions – no trend’s worth fol­low­ing just for the sake of it – it must suit you, your lifestyle and your taste, too.

That said, there’s plenty to ex­cite that could bring that req­ui­site per­son­al­ity to rooms, and make your home awe­some for au­tumn.

Abi­gail Bom­ford, se­nior de­sign man­ager at Ge­orge Home, says dark, ex­otic flo­rals are a ver­sa­tile trend.

She says: “We’re see­ing a mod­ern take on a clas­sic flo­ral look, which will achieve a bold state­ment in any room.”

At Marks & Spencer, Stephanie Chen says: “Mix deep bot­tle or rac­ing car greens with ochres, brick reds and aubergine pur­ples to cre­ate a lux­u­ri­ous, lay­ered feel.”
