Design & Build: Edit #1 AUTUMN/WINTER 2017 TRENDS

Last Updated on : 19th January 2018
Autumn and Winter Interior Design Trends 2017.

Forget Fashion Week, we’re more excited about the latest colour palettes, textures and materials for homes. Here’s our round-up of the trends to watch out for as the days get shorter.

Minimalist pastels

Minimalist pastels are a popular choice in 2017 and look to stay on for next year. Increasing in popularity are pinks, a surprisingly versatile shade that can create real harmony in the home. Paint The Town Green’s exclusive Nicky Haslam range features Peridot. Inspired by gems and minerals, in keeping with Paint The Town Green’s eco-friendly ethos, Peridot is a stony natural pink described by Nicky Haslam as “a kind of masculine pink”.

Floor-to-ceiling shutters

Our love of vast expanses of glass in oversized windows and doors is going nowhere. Thank goodness then for these sophisticated floor-to-ceiling shutters, offering a solution for privacy without disturbing flow and light. New for this season, this Manhattan design from The New England Shutter Company allows you to operate the blades using your fingertips!

Natural textures in kitchens

At the forefront of kitchen innovation for over 20 years, bespoke kitchen company Roundhouse has been instrumental in introducing texture. Director Jamie Telford says, “Highly textured surfaces for cabinetry in the kitchen is an emerging trend and Roundhouse is very much ahead of the game as it is the theme of our newest collections. River-washed Walnut ply or bleached Driftwood can be used in unusual combinations with simple handpainted matt lacquer and gorgeous natural stone.”

Think pink

Burgundy and pink will be a big colour in interiors. “Interiors often go hand in hand with fashion trends and these colours are huge at the moment,” says Emma Green from Emma Green Design. Dark moody tones featuring burgundy and cherry colours offset with lighter pinks creates a successful interiors scheme.

Changing the rules

Here’s a great example of where Ensoul has stripped back the type of materials used in a space but with lots of different varieties, for example, by putting floor boards on the walls, which make a striking feature. Don’t be afraid to utilise cork for the floor – it’s changed a lot since the 70s – there are now interesting patterns and tones supplied as engineered boards. “It’s beautiful, warm on your feet, hygienic, allergy-friendly and an acoustic insulator.”

Island time

Oft overlooked by homeowners, the island is becoming a feature in its own right with shades that pop reviving traditional kitchens. “Classic shaker kitchens are still going strong in popularity,” explains Jolanta Harradine from Eclectic Interiors. “But now the scheme is often personalised by using a different colour on the island. Dark navy and grey are still the favourites, but how about a dash of purple?”

Rustic geometric

Potter Perrin are the go-to specialists for the latest tiling trends and Harriet Perrin’s big

trend tip for the new season is monochrome and geometric. “If you mix them up and introduce the retro/weathered look, you have the new Maison. Combine with sleek bathroom furniture from Italian supplier, Artesi, to create an eye-catching yet sophisticated scheme.” CREDIT: potterperrin.com

 

 

Raw exposure

There are some C21 trends that have firmly established themselves as modern classics such as raw materials, which aren’t going anywhere. “Exposed steel beams, exposed brick walls and steelframed glazing combined with striking interior furnishings help soften spaces and enable buildings to be read for what they are,” says Seamus Shanks of dRAW Architects. CREDIT: draw-architecture.co.uk

 

 

True blue

Budge out the way, grey, it’s time to feel the blues. “Whilst very dark walls have been popular for the past couple of years now, the broad spectrum of shades of blue is very much a current trend,” explains Thea Ingram of Stanza Interior Design. “Mixing a very dark shade of blue/black with a denim or true blue works well in any room. We recently designed a bathroom for a client using blue geometric concrete tiles, dark blue walls, marble and plenty of plants.”

Curtain revival

Embellishments and rich trimmings are the perfect pairing with jewel-tone fabrics so on-trend this season. Nowhere is better suited to ramping up the luxe factor than on curtains. “Passementeries and trims are an amazing way to bring another level of detailing to curtains and blinds,” informs Mary Walsh of The London Curtain Girls. “Braids and fringes can elevate the simplest of linens to something timeless and classical and we use them a lot especially in period properties where they really draw the eye to a window treatment and add another layer of texture and interest in a scheme.”

Monochrome

Within the florals, pastels and rich jewel tones littering our interiors inspiration, monochrome is going nowhere and lends itself to many rooms in the house. Claire Burrage from Clara Bee recently created this black and white kitchen scheme, softened with reflective geometric tiling and light oak flooring.

Go organic

“Our interior trend for this season is all about bringing greens and organic shapes into the home,” says Laragh Bohn of Trinity Interior Design. “Succulents and cacti plants are an amazing way to add an organic touch and point of interest and there are an amazing selection of both fake and real options out there. Styled together with simple natural looking ceramics, a potted cacti will add a focal point placed on a very on-trend brass table. Gold and brass furniture and accessories are also still continuing to be very prevalent well into Autumn/Winter 17.”
