Autumn/Winter Home Decor Trends 2016
As the year begins to wind down, many of us tend to spend more time indoors, cozying up with family and friends. All of which makes Autumn/Winter the perfect time to refresh your home’s interior and focus on creating an environment that is simple, serene and stylish.
To help you create that perfect Autumnal atmosphere, Perfect Imperfect is sharing some of the season's hottest interior design trends. We hope these ideas will revitalise and inspire your design senses.
Black and White
Black and white is anything but basic. A black and white colour scheme is classic, sophisticated, incredibly versatile, and will enhance nearly any design style from traditional to modern. Adding monochromatic design elements to your interior brings focus, refinement and clarity to your home. Sky Circles(1), from Swedish brand Love Warrior, is a striking black and white art print that will look incredible in your bedroom, study or living room. Set in ivory and black, Day Birger Et Mikkelsen’s Violetta Dessert Plate (2) is simply beautiful. This ceramic dessert plate is perfect for dining, displaying on a wall or set alone as a piece of art to admire and enjoy. Arigato’s Black Steel Lamp (3) illuminates the amazing artistry that can come from smart, and straightforward utilitarian design. With its unique shape and elegant colouring, this is a lamp you will want to use and display with pride.
Shades of Grey
Don’t be fooled by grey’s neutral ways. Grey is one of the most important colours in your design arsenal. For centuries, grey’s many shades have been used to create tranquil and inviting interiors. With Stylodeco’s Grey Granite Linen Tablecloth(4), setting a beautiful dining table is effortless. This wonderfully versatile tablecloth is sure to create a warm and inviting dining event. Don’t forget to pick up ourTaupe Linen Kitchen Towel (5) to complete the look.

A fantastic way to add a warm glow to your home is by incorporating decorative accents with metallic trims and edges. The rich patinas of brass, copper and bronze offer distinctive design interest and add contrast to modern spaces dominated by neutral tones. Hübsch’s Glass Vases with Brass Ribbon Band(6) are the ideal accent for achieving a warm and relaxed atmosphere. Place any of these vases on your favourite side table or set atop a mantle to add elegance to your home. Utilising metallic framed mirrors is another great technique for adding visual warmth and sophistication to a room. Hübsch’s large Mirror with Brass Frame(7) is great for adding style and bringing a sense of reflective calm to your family’s living room.
This time of year, it is all about comfort. Our lives seem especially busy during these last few months of the year. As we rush to get everything done, we are sure to yearn for a sense of calm and look to our homes to provide comfort. One of the simplest ways to feel warm and relaxed is to update your fabric collection. Wrap yourself in the unmatched comfort of Stylodeco’s Waffle Linen Bath Towels(8). Our select towels are made from 100% pure linen, which creates a long-lasting towel that actually grows softer and more absorbent with each use. These towels are great for keeping you cosy, and also gently exfoliate to help keep your skin soft and beautiful.
Natural materials help create interiors that are peaceful and restorative; something we especially need during the Autumn and Winter months. If you want to bring both natural materials and eye-catching design to your home take a look at Day Birger Et Mikkelsen’s Round Hemp Rug(9). Crafted from 100% hemp and finished with a distinct black border, this circular rug will add texture, elegance and distinction to any floor space.
Incorporating select vintage and retro-inspired designs in your home can help establish a softer and more relaxed environment. The iconic Peacock Chair is experiencing a major retro revival. A favourite of glamorous artists and bohemians in the 1960s and 1970s these distinct chairs are once again finding their way into stylish contemporary homes. With its flared back and intricately woven handmade design Stylodeco’s natural rattan Peacock Chair(10) is regal yet playful and relaxed.
