Autumn 2020 interior design trends
Autumn’s an exciting season for interior design, marking the start of more time spent indoors, and setting the tone for the festive season ahead. And the Autumn 2020 interior design trends are just as exciting, with something for every interior design style and taste. We’ve recapped the biggest interior design trends for Autumn 2020 below, and while they include some usual suspects, there’s some more surprising ones too. Time to get inspired.
Jewel-toned interior design trend
The jewel-toned interior design trend is back again for Autumn 2020 – and it’s not hard to understand why. Rich shades of green, red and orange – inspired by luxury gemstones – add a regal, luxe look to your space that’s fitting for the colder months. But despite their refined elegance, jewel tones are cosy too, especially when combined with decadent textures like velvet, or elevated accents of marble and metal. This plush red lounge chair is a great living room statement piece, while this green and gold bar chair makes for a slick kitchen or dining room addition. Pair it with this blue velvet cushion on your sofa or accent chair to complete the look.
Oriental-inspired interior design trend
The Oriental interior design trend has gained in popularity recently, with fans loving it for its elaborate patterns and luxury materials like lace and silk. But, true to form, Japan-inspired design pieces are big on functionality too – form meets function. This red patterned tablecloth is a quick, affordable way to recreate the Oriental-inspired interior design trend in your dining space for Autumn 2020, in tandem with these blue floral dinner bowls. While this more subtle coloured cactus silk rug makes a softer statement in your living space.
Cottage chic interior design trend
The cottage chic interior design trend is perfect for Autumn 2020, thanks to its inherently cosy aesthetic and focus on family living. Mix natural wood furniture and vintage pieces with bolder colours to keep the look contemporary, and layer lots of cosy textiles to cuddle up to on colder Autumn days. This gold cafetiere is perfect in any cottage or farmhouse style kitchen, or atop this vintage bakery counter. While these 19th Century framed engravings add a rustic look that’ll stand out from the crowd.
A Cafetière. Or French press. A staple in our house when we’re making coffee for a crowd (otherwise Jeremy ends up playing barista, and it takes forever). We had wanted to make a ceramic one for a while - to take the idea of the ‘coffee pot’ (a teapot-like vessel used simply to serve previously brewed coffee in) and cross that with the Cafetière - to make a functional coffee pot for the table. Cutting out the coffee maker middleman and making the ritual of coffee for more than four a delight. Handmade in our workshop in Devon using fine bone china from Cornwall, the cafetière has stainless steel parts made for us by Steve at his mill just down the road on the outskirts of Exeter. The steel we’ve used is medical-grade, because it’s the best you can get. The jug has an elongated spout to ensure a perfect pour, a large hand-painted handle and a dimpled lid with a fine bone china pull on top that’s a wonkily imperfect circle, to add a functional element of sketch-like surprise.
