2016 Autumn Interior Trends and How to Incorporate your Reclaimed Furniture

Posted by Mark Godsell-Fletcher on

The season is changing; we’re going from a festival filled summer of bohemian vibes, crocheting and heavy beaded embellishments, into a winter of deep, velvety hues and sparkly metallics. It’s always exciting when you feel like you’ve had enough of seeing short shorts and you’re longing for those decadent winter collections to drop. But for our interiors there isn’t quite as big a shift in aesthetic as there is in fashion, but our tastes naturally alter due to the weather and cultural events. Of course, Christmas plays a huge part in how we decorate our homes during the winter months - things tend to get more glittery! So let’s take a look at a couple of 2016’s Autumn trends that will shape the rest of our year and how you can incorporate our reclaimed furniture

2016 Autumn Interior Trends and How to Incorporate your Reclaimed Furniture


1. BLACK STAINLESS STEEL


Flashback a few years ago to when baby pink and sky blue ovens were a big thing…well now it’s all about the sleek matte black stainless steel. This is quite a modern look and so if you’re considering a switch in appliances you need to make sure the rest of your room’s style will fit in too! Giving your rustic wood kitchen a makeover with a lick of paint should help bring it up to scratch for a cleaner polished look.

2. MIXED MATERIALS


If having an ethnic looking kitchen is more your domain than modern minimalism, feel free to go wild with your material choices because this year it’s all about mixing and mismatching aesthetics. Combine your reclaimed wood with printed soft furnishings, stainless steel appliances and colourful accents of whatever you like to create a quirky, homely space!

3. THICK KNITS


Thick knits are not just for jumpers - no, we’re stepping away from the demure weaves and getting cosied up in large cable knits for the colder months! The idea is to use them on your soft furnishings or as your furnishings; pillow cases, blankets, seat covers, duvets etc. Imagine teaming luxuriously soft knitted blankets with Eat Sleep Live’s reclaimed wood bed frame? It’ll look irresistibly rustic.

4. VINTAGE EXPLORER

Our fascination with travel and exploration is not at all a trend, but a way of life. Humans are naturally drawn to elements of adventure, though sometimes our materialistic world creates trends that have extended from this innate longing to be where we are not. This winter it’s all about the vintage explorer - think old world maps, leather chairs, tarnished suitcases and wooden globes. This is a great way to design an elegant office space, and will team greatly with our reclaimed wood office desk

5. TARTAN



Keeping you in check is the traditional print of the winter; tartan. Making a comeback in some form or another is the classic Scottish tartan. Whether you want it to dominate your room or keep it minimal through soft furnishings, the red check print is a festive look often associated with Christmas and cosying up in front of a log fire! We think it’s an ideal look for in a living room alongside your rustic wood coffee table!
