5 autumn/winter trends that will change the look of any room

They’ll see you into 2016 and beyond

Inky blue

If you thought you’d seen all navy has to offer, you would be wrong. This beautiful saturated blue is the perfect partner for white but also works wonderfully with wood or walnut. Look out for the new Little Greene “Blue” collection.


Long associated with Mid Century furniture, this warm wood has had a softer makeover. Combine with the metal du jour, brass, for a sophisticated, matt look.

Architectural sensibility

We’re starting to see designs with layers of plasterwork and peeling papers in neutrals coming through, alongside accents of scratched, mottled and marked surfaces.


Dulux announced its Colour of the Year for 2016 and it’s called “Cherished Gold”, which looks similar to ochre. Rose gold dipped accessories are sure to make an appearance in your home over the coming months, too.


Durable, textured and versatile, this 70s favourite is having a style revival. Cork looks great on furniture, lighting (such as these from Clippings) and accessories, and has become the material of the moment. It’s also a natural material which earns it extra points.
