We are now coming into my favourite time of the year. I love Autumn. The colours, the colder windy days, and the evenings are starting to draw in. We leave the garden and spend much more time inside during the Autumn/Winter months so you might be thinking of giving your living areas a lift. Put away your fans, light cushions and curtains and bring out the cosy blankets and thicker warmer curtains. To help you get started with this, I’ve had a look around at the fabric and textile trends for Autumn/Winter 2020/21. Let’s discover what’s trending for this forthcoming season.
Traditional Autumnal colours always make a comeback for the season. Rich chocolate browns, creams, moss greens, golds and oranges. These are the staple colours to base your Autumn interiors on.
When the weather is cooler you are looking for earthy colours to make your rooms feel warm. My favourite thing to do at this time of year is to curl up with a good book, a blanket, and hot chocolate. It’s the perfect stress reliever and mood booster. Changing your curtains and painting a feature wall to fit in with the Autumnal colours will help to achieve this. Browsing fabric colors and patterns online will give you ideas for transforming your living areas. Sit back, look and buy from Yorkshire Fabric Shop and you needn’t even leave your home.
Tartan is looking to be very popular this Winter. Blinds, blankets, and rugs are good options for tartan without the textile pattern being overpowering. Tweed and wool are back in the game and firm favourites in hues of greens, browns, yellows, and greys.
But the big strong contender for the colour of the season is blue, dark blues, and navy in particular. The classic colour is kicking up a storm as a darker, yet calming side to Autumn. In fact, it’s bringing an element of calm and luxury to your home. If you have a chair that’s needing an upgrade, upholstering it with a dark blue fabric will be perfect for this Winter.
If you are looking to upholster your furniture to uplift your home this Autumn you will need to look into the fabric you require for your needs. The upholstery fabrics differ in durability, so for an occasional dining chair, a lighter fabric would be sufficient. For more general use you need a harder wearing one.
You would be surprised how different your room will look once you have changed your curtains, cushions and upholstered your furniture. The cosy Autumnal feel and mood is achievable with only a few adjustments to your home interior. I love to browse on Pinterest for more ideas, to help you create the whole look.
Thank you for stopping by today, I hope I’ve given you some ideas on how to get the Autumnal feel for your home this year. What are your favourite Autumn/Winter colours and fabrics?
