Interior Design Trends August 2016
Searching for autumn interior design trends? With 2016 being the year for natural materials, calming colours and cosy throws, we’ve brought together a selection of our favourite homeware and lighting accessories to help you transform your home into a haven of tranquillity this season.
The Elemental trend brings the outside, inside by using nature as an inspiration for interior décor. Incorporating a range of textures, colours and materials will help you capture the true essence of the Elemental style.
Nothing quite screams autumn more than snuggling up on the sofa in front of an open fire with a mug of steaming hot Irish coffee. Our new Holkham Log Baskets are available in both medium and large and feature a lovely rope detailing around the top of the basket. Keep well stocked to avoid being left in the cold!
Incorporating the smooth, solid texture of marble into your interior design scheme is an excellent way of tapping into the Elemental trend. This beautiful chopping board is carved from solid white marble and comes with a stylish cord for handy storage.
2. Soft lighting
October is the month the clocks go back and, while we’re treated to an extra hour in bed, the price we pay for lighter mornings is longer, darker nights. Fortunately, there are plenty of ways to bring golden light into our homes, even after the sun has gone down. This season’s trend for soft, subtle lighting shuns the use of cold white lights in favour of softer, soothing lighting schemes.
There’s something incredibly soothing and comforting about lantern light. This beautiful asymmetric brass lantern is ideal for use both indoors and outdoors. Each piece of glass is hand welded, which helps to give each piece a classic, artisan feel.
These expertly crafted freestanding antique zinc glass stars are perfect for displaying around the home to add subtle mood lighting. Combine with an aromatic spiced tea light to really stir the senses. Available in three sizes. Small, medium and large.
3. Patterned throws
What would an autumnal evening at home be like without one or two luxury throws to curl up with? This year pattered throws are seeing a resurgence in popularity and there are some seriously luxurious options available for you to choose from.
Natural Lambswool Spot Throw
If you want to wrap yourself in pure luxury, this is the throw for you. Keep this incredibly soft Merino lambswool blanket to hand in your living room or bedroom to keep you cosy during the long, dark evenings.
Petrol Blue Throw
The design of this incredibly soft and inviting check Merino lambswool throw was inspired by the earthy colours of hills and moorland. The traditional pattern is a timeless classic that blends in effortlessly with virtually any design scheme.
