This autumn and winter, whether your plan is to revamp your home completely or give it a quick update, with some well-chosen accessories you’ll find the season’s inspiration on and off the high street.
Recently there has been a real movement towards adding warmth and soul to your home with either modern twists on classic pieces or by finding vintage finds in second hand shops, vintage retailers and through auctions. There are three trends that tap into the current mood. With it’s very British “lived in” charm, home comforts heralds a return to domesticity through a timeless nod to traditional crafts and a focus on lifestyle accessories as much as statement pieces. With reclaimed elements, a hint of nostalgia and soft industrial mood, key pieces would include vintage kitchenware and old sideboards and dressers.
For those who prefer simpler lines, Far Eastern influences, such as pale and dark woods, origami style pleats and Ikat prints with a modern Scandi minimalist mood help to create an understated yet elegantly slim line look for a home.
As a contrast another trend ushers in the return of old school glamour and Art Deco opulence for the home. Think mirrored surfaces, shimmering metalics, sharp geometrics and a palette of deep blues and rich golds, which combine in a look that offers a sophisticated alternative to the austere looks which have prevailed.
