winter home interiors trends

If you want to get your house on trend for Christmas, here’s what’s trending in interiors right now…

Thank you,, for commissioning me to write about what’s trending for Winter 2017. The products featured in this article are my own personal recommendations.

1. Rich velvets

Velvet is everywhere this winter. Bring it into your home in a big way with statement furniture, or just nod to it with a cushion or two.

2. Metallics

While copper reigned for season upon season over the last two years, it has gradually started to trickle away. Gold tries to move into its place but I actually think silver will get the spotlight for 2018.

5. Darkness

Darkness has been brought to the forefront of interiors this year through strong, moody wall colours. But, you can of course bring this trend in with just your accessories. Go for charcoals or deep indigos and contrast it with metallics to really make it pop.
