When I was growing up, I remember my parents decorating a room and that was that. No changes throughout the year (apart from a Christmas tree). Now though, it’s all the rage to add seasonal touches which is such a great idea. Why can’t your home interior change with the seasons – just like your wardrobe? London Fashion Week showcased some of the top trends for AW19, that would transfer beautifully to the home.
There’s no need to for a total refurb, little touches can change the whole vibe of a room. Whether it’s a fresh roll of wallpaper or a couple of statement pieces, here are some favourite trends and tips on how to make your front room fit for the pages of Vouge.
Spotted on the catwalk of London Fashion Week Asai show, neutrals were a standout trend. Get this look at home with the modern, multifunctional and modular Bertie sofa, the definition of versatility.
Whoever said Autumn/Winter needed to be dull. Marigold Yellow was, quite literally, a not-to-be missed trend this season and I’ve already spotted it popping up on Instagram. A key look in the JW Anderson show, it got the royal seal of approval from the formidable fashionista herself – Anna Wintour, who was front row at the show.
Add a burst of sunshine as a feature, something as simple as a lick of paint on a fireplace, door or mouldings can give a cheery and welcoming vibe throughout the cold and dark shadows of winter.
Beloved of Laura Ashley prints from the 90s (that haunt my childhood dreams), flower prints are no longer just reserved for dated sitting rooms. The Erdem collection presented some stunning floral prints this season, and these can be emulated seamlessly into the home. Embrace the blossoms with an Arlo & Jacob footstool, an innovative way to incorporate a pop of colour in your home.
And of course, Victoria Beckham didn’t disappoint this season. Strong silhouettes were softened with playful necklines that wowed the famous faces on the front row. Try this at home with some slick and simplistic shelving that incorporates those angular designs with a couple of curves to relax the look.
I’m not entirely my DIY clothes and dog jumpers will ever be represented in the interiors world but I’ll have to keep my eyes open, you just never know.
