What colours do you need in your home for AW15?

August 14, 2015

 

If you're thinking of revamping your home at some time in the next few months, you may want to have a look at some of the key colour trends for AW15 for some inspiration.

Not only will autumn and winter interior trends help to inform your design and create in-style rooms, you'll find that the shades that are big during the season will also stand the test of time.

One of the most important trends of the coming season is luxury, with plush fabrics, atmospheric lighting and rich tones all being popular choices. You might think it could be difficult to create a luxurious look, especially if you're on a budget, but these two top colour choices will help:

Rich red

Red is the perfect colour for AW15 and can easily transform the look of a room. Whether you're aiming for a complete colour overhaul or simply want to include a few accents, red can make a statement when it comes to your interior.

Rather than painting your walls bright crimson, think more plum, oxblood and burgundy, as these are less of an assault on the senses, especially when a room is awash with light.

These work really well on blank walls or when teamed with a patterned or textured effect. Team with golden accents and lighter red shades in key areas to create a really dynamic appearance that is on-trend and classic all at once.

If you want to try adding red accents to your room before taking the plunge with paint. This acrylic table is incredibly stylish, which looks as though it is an invisible table draped in a tablecloth.

It will add a beautiful splash of colour to any room and is an easy way to embrace this colour trend.

Iconic indigo

On the other end of the colour spectrum for AW15 is deep shades of indigo. This offers a cool alternative to the vibrancy of red that can be just as effective when used throughout interior design.

It works incredibly well with any metallics, although using silver alongside dark blues can create a very cold effect, which isn't ideal if your room doesn't get a lot of natural light. This is why it is a good idea to use golds or bronzes if you want to mix indigo with metallics, as these shades will help balance your room.

You can also team the darker blue with lighter shades - as well as go for a lighter shade altogether if you find indigo too strong for your space - by adding furniture and accessories. This will create an element of texture that will be incredibly effective.

Chairs in light blue are a lovely choice, with the shade still tying in with AW15's idea of luxury. The lighter colour is also ideal for the warmer months, meaning they are a really great investment that will never go out of style.

Whether you decide to go all out with these colours or add small elements to your home, red and indigo furniture will help to up the style stakes and keep you ahead of the curve.
