From modern rustic to ‘cottagecore’ to adding a little hygge into your home, recent interior trends are making an entry for autumn and winter with a shift away from summery pink hues to something more minimalist with a definite cosy ambiance.
We take a look at some of the trends and how you can achieve them with some new accessories for an ultra-stylish and cosy look during the cooler months.
If you’ve got your eye on a more ‘modern rustic’ approach, then this is all about balance. Finishing touches will be the goal to achieving this look, adding modern elements that are just perfectly rustic around the edges. It’s clean calm, neutral and sleek with plenty of wood elements to bring in that required cosy feel.
Top product pick: Wooden blinds are a brilliant way to complete this trend, for a finishing touch that will last. Swift Direct Blinds has got you covered with a neutral range of options to nail that modern rustic vibe completely. Designed and tailored for daily use, the range of wooden blinds is available in an array of shades, stains and colours, providing a timeless backdrop to your rustic themed decor.
Whilst these blinds are perfect for a living room or bedroom, they are in fact water-resistant so they could also be used in a kitchen or bathroom and with the option for ‘extra wide’ blinds, they are suitable for even the biggest windows in your home.
David Roebuck, managing director at Swift Direct Blinds, said: “Our range of made-to-measure wooden blinds are in high demand for those looking to redecorate their room to incorporate a rustic feel. From light wood to dark wood, faux wood to real wood – there’s a choice that matches every budget and aesthetic.”
Inspired by days of yore, ‘cottagecore’ is a whimsical and homely visual aesthetic that has seen a rise in popularity this year. Made popular with fashion, meaning floral dresses and the like, the trend moves onto interiors by translating into lace tablecloths, patterned wallpaper, floral accessories and cosy furnishings that create the look and feel of being in a cosy cottage. You don’t need to live in a country cottage to achieve the look, the style can be achieved in any home with a few choice features.
Top product pick: Transport your home straight into the country aesthetic with floral wallpaper. It’s making a comeback, so you’ll find a range of options out there, but we love some of the picks at Graham and Brown. When styling just remember; the bigger the flower, the better, and this bold print is better placed on one or two walls so as not to overwhelm the space.
Certainly not a new trend but wishing a sense of cosiness and wellbeing upon ourselves when the wind howls outside is never going to dissipate. The minimal Scandinavian trend embodies all things inviting so get the look in your home with candles, an open fire, comfy blanket and enjoy some hearty meals with loved ones and you’ll be well on your way to achieving this state of mind.
Top product pick: For an instantly cosy effect in any space, lighting is your friend. When the days only give us eight hours of daylight – dim at that, it’s only right that we should light up our spaces with some stylish options. Add cosiness with some lamps rather than main lighting and settle down with a warm drink, a book or food and conversation with friends for true contentment.
