5 Interior Trends We’re Loving Now

Javier Steel

With the turn of the season comes the perfect opportunity for a home revival.

We explored Pottery Barn, West Elm, Williams-Sonoma and Pottery Barn Kids at the Canberra Outlet Centre to pick our top interior trends for autumn/winter.

Grandma’s cupboard

From enamel tableware to gravy boats, crystal and lace – this season you’ll discover vintage inspired pieces for every area of your home, including your pantry. Pair old with new by dotting vintage style items throughout your kitchen and bathroom. You could also adapt the age-old look into an eclectic tablescape for entertaining by mismatching glassware, silverware and porcelain.

Down to earth

We live in the digital age – constantly connected to high tech gadgets and the online world. It makes sense that we want to bring nature into our homes. From raw wood furniture, through to linen bedding, the trend for all things natural is growing. We’re seeing natural materials reworked in new ways, providing unique home décor solutions. See cow-hide transform into a contemporary herringbone rug and reimagine a classic woolen rug as a geometric statement piece.

Coloured glass will illuminate our ‘nests’ through autumn and winter.

Cluster a collection of bottles and vases together for maximum impact and add visual interest by playing around with tonal hues. The placement of your glass assemblage is key – in the right light you’ll achieve a sculptural, translucent glowing feature.

Consumer conscious

The societal swing and demand for reusing, recycling and up cycling has led manufacturers to get creative with discarded objects and materials. The pros? We now have the choice to purchase home wares and decorative items without the guilt. Up cycling is here to stay, so get onboard with sustainable home décor solutions.

Consumer 1

West Elm Recycled Glass Wine Punts Set of four Green and blue glass in various sizes, $12.90

Age obsessed

Our love of all things old continues through autumn and winter. The metallic of the moment produces a texture that replicates the patina found in antique mirrors. From framed mirror glass through to shelving and furniture, we’ll be seeing our dappled reflections from all angles.
