Home Interior Trend Report: Autumn/ Winter 2017


As the darker nights begin to draw in, summer will soon be leaving us behind for cosy winter evenings. With the season change comes a chance to give your home an autumnal refresh with the latest AW17 interior trend lust-haves. With homeware trends ranging from deep homely greens, dusky soft pinks and warm vintage brass there will undeniably be a look to cater to your homeware needs this season. Below, we’ve picked out four of the key up and coming homeware trends and highlighted our favourite picks from Coggles’ extensive new collection.

  1. Evergreen


With mindfulness becoming an ever-prevalent lifestyle trend, this season it’s also filtering itself into our homes through the use of deep and soothing ‘evergreen’ colours. With ‘greenery’ being named Pantone Colour of the Year 2017, the homeware trend is synonymous with the rapid growth of the wellness industry and focuses on bringing balance back into your life in a hectic world full of technology.

Renewal, revitalisation and rejuvenation are the backbones behind this AW17 colour trend, forging strong ties to both nature and sustainability. Tropical-inspired hues provide a dramatic colour that will help re-charge you as you immerse yourself in the natural, earthy colours, creating a warming and calming ‘natures neutral’.


If you prefer cool-toned interiors, team with grey, light woods and lilac, or create a cosier autumnal feel by pairing evergreen with deep oranges and brass tones, using plants to add more decorative elements. Use as an accent colour to freshen up a pre-decorated room, or for a more dramatic look use as a base tone for a full room.

Adopt this bold trend and immerse yourself in natural world. Shop Coggles collection of evergreen vases, candles and cushions for the perfect way to introduce the trend into your home and create the perfect environment to disconnect and recharge.

2. Muted Pink


‘Millennial pink’ was a huge colour trend earlier this year, and now it’s toned-down sister is here to stay for the Autumn/Winter season. Described by WGSN as ‘all about softness with a hint of romanticism’, think a range of muted tones from powder pinks and peachy-salmon shades teamed with sherbet hues, smoky grey and pastel colours.

Hushed colour trends and popularity for dusty interior tones rose in 2016, and the trend isn’t set to go anywhere as 2017 draws to a close, with Pantone highlighting pink ‘Pale Dogwood’ as one of the top ten colours in their 2017 Fashion Colour Report.


Colour psychology research demonstrates that certain homeware colour schemes invoke different moods, with pinks creating harmony, contributing to the creation of a calming and peaceful home.

Ensure that the sugar-coated trend doesn’t become sickly sweet by incorporating white, silver or glass accessories to tone it down and create a room that is both feminine and sophisticated whilst remaining easy to re-work into a colour scheme year after year.

3. Brass is Back


Want to freshen up a room without having to completely strip back and redecorate from the ground up? Meet brass: your perfect ‘accent’ trend. Cold, harsh metals such as ‘clinical’ chrome and silver are out, and warm reflective brass is in. Use the warm metal sparingly to create a chic, modern vibe and avoid brass over-kill to avoid any possibility of creating a cheap look.

Struggling to know how to integrate the metal into your home? Lighting and accessories are a great place to start and the metal is perfectly paired with the forest evergreen trend discussed earlier to create the perfect mixture of industrial-chic and homely comfort.


Coggles’ range of brass homeware will help you phase the understated warming metal into your home to create the perfect cosy atmosphere for those darker autumnal nights.

4. Navy and Pink


Move over grey – and make way for the new base colour for Autumn/Winter 2017 – Navy. This intimate depth inducing colour is no stranger to homeware trends, but this season the indigo-ink is paired with dusky pinks, teaming soft with strong to contrast the deep navy base. Utilise navy as your primary colour focus and use soft pink to accent, allowing you to effortlessly create an infusion of warmth and depth by combining traditional masculinity with femininity.

This contrasting colour combination adds complexity whilst remaining intimate, resulting in the creation of a warm unisex interior. To fashion a timeless aesthetic that will transcend from season to season, team navy and pink with ivory furniture and keep textures to a minimum to highlight the bold use of colour, and accessorise with crystal and glass for a subtly refined finish.


Navy alone can make a small room seem smaller, and even a large space can become dark. However, pink acts as a neutral, bringing a new lightness into a room, without negating the cosy atmosphere created with the navy base, proving to be a perfect combination as both colours are extremely easy to work with. Brave and bright colour clashes such as the ‘navy-pink’ hybrid are dubbed to be a huge homeware trend as we enter the AW17 season.
