Home Furnishing Trends for Autumn-Winter 2010Posted on: October 28, 2010
Trends for Autumn – Winter 2010
Glamorous elements uplift the moods to transfer your home into a luxurious cocoon. Brushed metallics, dusky plums with mother of pearl add a lustrous finish to your home. See this trend follow through on bedding and home accessories.
Colour flow from the Summer Season with brights mixing with craft elements in homeware is an important trend. Patchwork fabrics, embroideries, stripes and quirky geometric designs, which we see coming through in wallpaper, cushions and bed linens.
Pastels was a key trend for Spring – Summer 2010 and again this trend continues which is unusual for a winter season which ordinarily focus on darker colours. Rather than the traditional baby blue, sugary pinks and lemon, this trend is more about sophisticated palette of tinted neutrals. Mixing this look with matt metallic’s and frosted shades give a very sophisticated winter look.
The Nostalgic trend is still important mixing chintzy bouquet florals, traditional plaids, pyjama stripes and hand-stiched fabrics give for an eccentric British look. Handcrafted knitted textiles and vintage looking tableware and home accessories. Mixing this with more modern pieces finishes this look.
