“Often, people find it comforting to be surrounded by neutrals. Layering in texture, colors found in nature, simple shapes and metal finishes can elevate a standard neutral palette to create a more modern, neutral space.” — Tiffany Leblanc of LeBlanc Design, LLCCourtesy of LeBlanc Design, LLC

“This client loves the outdoors and really wanted a comfortable living space that felt equally organic and refined. The walls are horse hair woven in shades of camel, olive green and tan surrounding a vintage inspired chair in a golden tan silk velvet and olive leather welt. The palette is completely derived from nature, bringing the outside in giving a presence to eclectic objects and artwork in the space.” — Ashli MizellCourtesy of Ashli Mizell

“Curved sofas solve many ‘age old design dilemmas.’ First, you never have to look at the flat ugly back of a sofa again. Second, conversation in the area is now oriented where everyone seated on the sofa can see each other instead of the side of each other’s heads! Third, the organic curve adds harmony and order to the room instead of just a flat-lined sofa. The Victorian era was the best illustration of curved sofas. During that time women couldn’t move easily in their dresses, so curved sofas added comfort to the living room conversations. We chose a curved sofa for this room since it is a room of social gathering with bar cabinets flanking each side of a wood-burning fireplace. The design of the room draws you into it… and makes you never want to leave!” — Emily Mackie, Inspired InteriorsCourtsey of Inspired Interiors
Shop the look: Moxley spun bamboo dome ceiling light, £120; Austin oak dining bench, £395; Austin oak dining table, £595; Talia grey dining chair, £95 each; Seinfield woven blocks rug, £350, all Habitat.
This is a combination of different elements that creates a beautiful and simple look with the emphasis on natural-looking furniture. As Kate Butler, head of design at Habitat, explains: ‘Here there’s been a focus on stripped timbers, wood grain and a return to simple, natural patinas and materials within furniture.’ Team this with gently patterned crockery, soft grey chairs and a neutral block coloured textured rug to complete this calming trend.
Playful and full of colour, this trend is certainly a happy one. Look out for bold shades in different shapes – stripes, geometrical, spots and blocks and you can’t go wrong. Pop it all together and you’ll have this trend spot on. Lois Vincent, home designer at House of Fraser, says: ‘Its design DNA lies in its mix and match of graphic geos, bold colours and clean lines. Running through it all is a confidence to clash not match. The only rule? Make it modern.’
“The owner of this 1906 Victorian wanted to highlight as much of the home’s original charm as possible. One of the ways we achieved this was by incorporating classic, timeless materials such as this Carrara marble coffee table by Holly Hunt. The marble surface was a perfect complement to the original fireplace, replete with original tile in soft pink and green tones — some of the client’s favorite colors. Marble also provides a refreshing visual balance to the warm wood tones in the custom bookshelves, the honeyed leather in the ottomans and the rich olive green velvet on the custom sofa.” — Jaclyn Christensen, IDF StudioChristopher Stark
“Black is classic and sophisticated, and allows for high-contrast, sculptural moments.” — Michelle Dirkse, Michelle Dirkse Interior DesignHaris Kenjar

With all of us spending more and more time on social media, there’s a move towards more conscious and folk-inspired handcrafted homewares. Having pieces that feel great will be key; tufted rugs, decorative quilts and rattan lampshades, as shown here, will all be popular. There’s a need for textures that create interest visually whilst retaining a cosy feel to help us through those darker months.
“We added some visual texture to the original charm of this 1880 Catskills farmhouse with a black and cream rug. The classic pattern, a bold counterpoint to the natural rustic wood, adds a modern, graphic element while creating separate areas behind the dining, entrance and living spaces.” — Stefania Skrabak, Art Home GardenNick Glimenakis
Navy is the BIG colour for these coming seasons, gentle on the eye yet moody enough to be perfect for the winter months – you’re going to see it everywhere. Here, it’s been teamed with gold and this wallpaper is inspired by sashiko, a form of functional embroidery from Japan that uses geometric stitching to mend areas of worn clothes. Keep accessories simple and let this dazzling wallpaper be the focal point of your room.

“In the absence of color, it is always important to add plentiful texture and movement, even if you use various neutral tones throughout the space. This client, in particular, has a large living and dining space that we filled with layer upon layer of organic and patterned elements. From the pillows on the sofa, to the wall decor, to the details of the accent furniture, we are touching on ingredients that have always been our signature: natural textures, fluid shapes, and calm, clean colors.” —Lisa Sherry InterieursMichael Blevins
As the weather changes and we find ourselves entering fall, design projects, renovations and redecorations gear up for this stylish season. From curved sofas to black accents in the kitchen to a rising global nomadic style, we take a look at the biggest trends in the interior design world for fall 2018.
Dusty, old fashioned pinks are all the rage for autumn which is a perfect antidote to the usual rusty tones we see, and as it’s such an easy-on-the-eye colour it’s simple to apply to our homes. We asked Karen Thomas, head of design at Home at Marks & Spencer to explain this trend: ‘Adding warmth and colour to your home, these tones will work especially well alongside metallic, contemporary greys and the new wave of darker neutrals. If you’re feeling bold, go for statement upholstery in vibrant pink velvet or for a more understated look try painterly florals and layer textures and fabrics to add interest.’

Fans of monochrome will adore this trend. It’s all about the accessories – and they need to be black. But if you’re not a massive fan of large amounts of black you can make this trend work by using small blocks here and there. Like this beautiful beaded pendant, console and shelving unit. Combine this look with tactile pieces and white to balance it out.
“As we settle into fall in Chicago, we’re thinking of enveloping spaces. Deep jewel-toned color blocking unifies this bedroom vignette and gives a sense of warmth and comfort. The nearly monochromatic inky blue envelope is the perfect backdrop to highlight the bordeaux velvet coverlet, the richly hued art, the gilded mirror and the macassar cabinets.” —Tom Konopiots & Michael Stornello, Vincere, Ltd.Scott Shigley
“The geometric pattern is always trendy as you can use it in either a modern or a classic way. It’s classic because it originates from ancient roman marble floors, so it’s perfect for any home surrounded by antiques and velvet curtains. It can be also very 20th century — because it reminds us the Art Deco 1920s skyscraper interiors, full of geometric marbles and brass sufaces. But it’s also modern if you leave it alone, as unique decoration, without any atrezzo around, maybe just with painted white walls and clean white stone floors —that’s it. It’s young, it’s fresh, it’s sophisticated, but always depending on the soul you want to add to your space.” — Lorenzo CastilloCourtesy of Lorenzo Castillo
Kitchens are undergoing a change, no longer are they simply all about one style of units, a worktop and a complementary splashback. This new and exciting trend is all about mixing it up – different textures sat next to each other, contrasting in both colour and touch. ‘A sleek quartz work surface with an integrated solid wood chopping board or dark cabinetry against a clean marbled splashback, makes for an eye-catching space, and one that is full of character,’ says Daniela Condo, designer at Life Kitchens.
Think Scandi combined with nostalgic designs from Sainsbury’s packaging archives and this is the eye-catching result, as Andrew Tanner, design manager at Sainsbury’s Home explainsL ‘This new dining range evokes 1950’s nostalgia with a modern Scandinavian edge, and embodies the excitement and post-war boom of the era. Updated with a yellow and deep aqua blue colour palette, this collection is a must-have to bring a vibrant pop of colour to the dining table, designed to be mixed and matched for informal, vintage style.’ Team it with pale blond wood furniture so the design sings out and keep the styling simple.
“Layered spaces, complete with a heavy dose of textiles and vintage or one-of-a-kind pieces are our calling card. And frankly, there’s no better way to achieve a Global Nomad-inspired sensibility in your own spaces! Start by looking around at what you already have, then hit local antique shops and estate sales to add interesting art and accessories to make your space sing.” —CLOTH & KINDRustic White Photography

Keep the rest of the look simple, so the florals become the star and pick out key colours to accessorise with.

“Our take on a sophisticated TV hangout area for the younger members of the family. We wanted to reference the rich aesthetics of a London private club, with a strong dose of still prevalent fashion for all things midcentury. Visual interest comes from an extensive layering of patterns, accent colors and cultural references, in a mix of art and accessories, that feed into the current trend of maximalism.” —Hubert Zandberg InteriorsSimon Upton
