What to Expect From AW20 Interior Trends

As we start to move into our autumn winter wardrobes, we’re also starting to update our interior decor for the upcoming season. We understand the importance of creating a comfortable and calming atmosphere as well as achieving optimum style through our interiors, so we’re taking you through the trends to do just that. In SS20 we were treated to a combination of distressed surfaces and organic textures, making our homes mimic the aesthetic of the outdoors. This season we’ll be seeking sanctuary with sunset hues and looking for influence in indigenous icons in our home accessories. Here’s all of the AW20 interior trends we’ll be integrating into our homes this season.

#1 Conscious Clarity

Taking a ‘less is more’ approach when it comes to prints and patterns, the conscious clarity trend features a selection of organic curves, soft edges and rounded contours. Giving an update and nod to minimalist scandinavian homeware, this trend works in every environment. The trend also references symbolic circles, micro geo shapes and simple botanical patterns for a back-to-basics approach to design.

#2 Sunset Hues

A juxtaposition to the icy tones outside our winter windows, our AW20 interiors reflect the warming hues of the sunset. We’re integrating rusty ambers, rosey pinks and tobacco browns alongside textured greys, earthy greens and desert blues into our homes this season. This colour palette will give your home a calming aesthetic for you to entertain, work and rest in.

#3 New Mythologies

Bloomingville homeware


Offering a new spin on global folk patterns and fusing indigenous arts and heritage, the new mythologies interior trend draws on everything from Mexican and Aboriginal prints to organic camouflage and symbolic circles. Hand-drawn styles project a more authentic and crafted look for more artisanal style.

#4 New Heritage

Celebrating design elements from various eras and reconfiguring them into new styles, one of our favourite AW20 interior trends is new heritage. Striking a balance between twisted antiques and contemporary designs. Integrate touches of the trend into your home with the addition of vintage floral prints in updated colour palettes or candelabras with a contemporary feel.
