Every season IKEA unveils the four key home trends that it predicts will be ‘the look’ that we’ll all soon be channelling in our decor.
This autumn is no exception – and given most of us have at least a bit of IKEA in our homes, then you’ll be seeing these styles pretty much everywhere over the next few months…
Dark and moody colour schemes are where it’s at: rich burgundy, navy blue, olive green.
Sophisticated and sumptuous, but you don’t necessarily have to commit to painting your walls; instead, use textiles to bring in these deeper tones.
A softer, more feminine take on the serene Scandi look with a palette of grey and dusky pink, with accents of brass. Layer tactile textures – faux furs, chunky knit throws and pouffes – to create a place to snuggle against the cold outside.
As we all become increasingly aware of the environmental impact of our lifestyles, homewares, furniture and fabrics made from eco-friendly materials will be very popular. It’s all about creating stylish spaces (banish thoughts of hippy hemp and incense) that are eco-conscious.
