    Interiors follow fashion this season as chunky knit becomes a big trend for AW17. Incorporate it through soft furnishings, such as scatter cushions or foot stalls, to give your living room a textured touch. Find similar pieces on Etsy.

    Colourful baths

    Banish boring bathtubs this season and choose something a little more colourful for your bathroom. Great for adding a touch of vibrancy if you’ve gone for an all white aesthetic, the Tubby Too by Albion Bath Co. is super cute and can be colour customised with your choice of Dulux paint.

    Rattan

    If you aren’t a massive fan of dark woods then the rattan trend might be perfect for you. Softer than solid wood but equally good at adding a little texture, opt for a furniture than incorporates handwoven rattan panels, like this beautiful Normany bed by The French Bedroom Company.

    Global vintage

    The world of interiors pays homage to vintage travel this season as antique globes, suitcases and map print pieces pop up again and again. Add a little decorative storage to your home with an antique suitcase, or go for a bolder look with a vintage map wallpaper.

     Tartan

    Tartan is perfect for adding a touch of cosiness to your living room, especially in the winter months. Tartan wallpaper looks amazing, but if that’s too much of a statement for you then try a comfy armchair, like this Foxwood Armchair in Chatsworth Tartan, instead.

    Grey

    Eternally chic, grey is the colour of choice for interiors this season. Great for softening a predominantly white-washed look, try bringing it into the home through soft chalky grey walls or cosy flannel blankets, like the Addison from The White Company.

     Statement chairs

    If you’re debating how to fill an empty corner of a room, invest in a statement chair and you’ll have one of the hottest interior trends for autumn/winter. Pick a bright, button-back armchair to add a pop of colour or follow the rattan trend and go for Scandinavian-inspired cool with a wing chair like this one from Graham and Green.
