Trend Alert – Blossom with Autumn Florals
There’s no stopping the trend for florals in the world of fashion and interiors. Kenzo and Mulberry both presented autumnal blossoms in recent shows and we can’t get enough of the glamorous new look and opulent colour palette. For Autumn 2016, it’s all about layering feminine patterns, prints and embroidery. Read on for our take on the trend and how to bring this sophisticated style into your home.
Floral patterns are extremely versatile. Whether you’re after something delicate and dainty to bring a touch of femininity to your room, or prefer daring and dramatic to create atmosphere, there’s a look for everyone. Mixing patterns and prints in the home is a careful balancing act, but the results can be simply beautiful. This season, patterns include a mixture of flower heads, petals, and leaf shapes as the inspiration from nature remains strong.
We’ve noted a move on from the pretty pastel shades of summer, to richer colours including rose reds and deep plums alongside fresh whites and blush pinks. Incorporate these tones through your choice of soft furnishings and opt for plush textures to add a luxe element to your space. We love an opulent velvet for bringing a touch of glamour – try the Fifty Nine Armchair in gorgeous Matt Velvet Berry for a real style statement. A couple of embroidered scatters will complete the look!
Remember, you don’t need a complete room makeover to capture this fabulous trend. A few simple accessories can totally transform your home. Bring a neutral base of white or grey to life with a single accessory that features a large, bold floral pattern, like this rug. Then pick out one or two complementary colours for accents like artwork, lamps and throws which will bring harmony to the space.
