Interiors Trends A/W 15
As we creep into September our thoughts here at G Plan HQ are turning to the Autumn/Winter season and the up and coming trends for the home. We’ve picked out our very favourite colour palettes to give you a little interiors inspiration, ready to refresh and re-invigorate your entertaining spaces, as they’re sure to be relied upon during the months to come.
Colour matures for the Autumn with midnight blues, deep purples and vibrant pinks all very much on trend in the new season. Natural tones inspired by moody skies, stones and berries bring an atmospheric and mysterious vibe to a room, whilst remaining inviting as the weather takes a turn. Three of our favourite paint colours for this scheme are Little Greene’s Purpleheart, Mambo and Mischief. If you’ll be hosting regularly during the Autumn months, you’ll want a space that’s practical and comfortable, so invest in a large sofa in a sumptuous leather like Capri Aubergine. Add luxury to your scheme with soft metallics like distressed gold, copper and burnished zinc which will bring a little glamour against a dark backdrop. Enhance the mood by placing candles around the room to give a warming glow during the cooler evenings.
One of our favourite combinations for the season ahead is Teal and Gold. Teal has been big throughout 2015 and gold makes a great accent. We found some real treasures on Rockett St Geoge including a beautiful etched ethnic tall vase, a quirky Abigail Ahern gold glasses ornament and this chic black lampshade with gold interior. Farrow and Ball offer a wide variety of paint colours to set this scheme off including Stone Blue and Green Blue. Alternatively go bold with the sofa or armchairs, choose Festival Teal fabric and create a real talking point for your guests.
If you prefer a lighter scheme, opt for Nordic pastels. These shades are super for summer, but are incredibly versatile and lend themselves perfectly to a cool A/W scheme. We like Little Greene’s Pink Slip and Sky Blue. These subtle shades paired with clean lines and simple shapes provide a calming vibe. To soften the look and keep the room cosy, incorporate texture with chunky knit throws and mood lighting. If you’re choosing a sofa with showwood like the Fifty Five model, opt for Ash show wood to compliment the scheme. Upscaling furniture has never been as popular, and Annie Sloan chalk paint is incredibly easy to use if you’re a first timer. Pale shades like Antionette and Louis Blue are just a couple of our favourites for adding a vintage vibe.
All three of these schemes are perfect for transforming rooms you like to entertain in – the living room, family room, dining room, even the kitchen. So enjoy experimenting with the new season’s colours and create a space that you’re excited to host in.
