It’s only the middle of summer, but I’m already looking ahead to next season.
I’ve been scouring our favourite press databases, looking for what our favourite shops will be stocking this autumn and winter and I’ve noticed five trends emerging.
If you’re planning a home makeover, you might want to check out the list below. Get ahead of the curve by learning what’s going to be popular next season now. Your friends and family will think you’re a trendsetter!
1. Nude & black will be everyone’s favourite colour combo:
Goodbye grey, there’s (finally) a new neutral on the block: nude. Next season, everyone will shun those HIGHLY popular cold grey tones, instead opting for warm, delicate and sophisticated shades of cream.
Looking for an accent colour? Break up those buttery beige shades with a blast of black.
2. Warm tones will be popular throughout autumn:
We’ll be keeping our homes cosy this autumn as warm tones will dominate the high street. Think autumnal oranges, earthy browns and berry reds.
Of course, these shades work beautifully with the rich, creamy shades mentioned above.
3. Country style will return – with a twist
“Country” is one style you cannot escape in the autumn and winter seasons. Think rustic log cabin in the woods meets traditional farmhouse.
As in previous years, you won’t be able to move for stag prints and tartan textiles after September. However, this year the style will return with a contemporary twist: modern metallics and just a hint of pastel.
4. Midnight blue will dominate Christmas:
Traditional Christmas colours continue to fall out of favour this year. In previous years, we’ve seen glittering metallics, cute and kitsch, colourful eclectic and rose pink themes emerge in popularity. But this year, it’s all about the blue hue.
At Christmas, expect to see the high street go sophisticated with this modern midnight shade.
5. We’ll go potty for pretty planters:
Since Pantone chose ‘Greenery’ as their Colour of the Year in 2017, we’ve become a nation of plant lovers. We’ve been adding cute little succulents, leafy foliage and beautiful blooms to our homes ever since.
This hasn’t gone unnoticed by high street stores who are producing masses of vases, planters and pots for us to buy.
