Home interiors are bringing a roll call of vibrant and bold looks. Homes & Living found dark blooms and some glittery metallics.
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.”
