Had enough of blush, botanical prints and all things tropical? Our checklist of autumn trends is here to help. From the rattan revival to the new way to do Scandi, here’s eight key ways to refresh your space for the season ahead.

1. Inky interiors

Gray & Willow

Inky indigo hues are warmer than grey – but just as versatile. If Victoriana wall-to-wall navy is too much of a commitment, try building up colour with layers of cosy textures, accented with natural wood or metallics like gold and brass.

Gray & Willow Anders Stripe Cushion £18.00

Gray & Willow Giant Rib Throw £95.00

2. Relaxed Scandi

Gray & Willow

Ever-popular Scandi style meets modern country for a cosy, contemporary update. Forgo clean lines in favour of rustic touches like natural wood, hand-marked ceramics and tactile finishes in a palette of chalky grey.

Gray & Willow Stonewashed Towel Range from £15.00

Gray & Willow Kalia Vase £25.00

3. Rattan


Remember rattan? Once a staple of the 70s, this garden furniture favourite has made its way indoors and rid itself of any retro associations. Airy and informal, it works well with a bohemian or shabby chic scheme.

Junipa Iris Double Bed £1,279

Junipa Palm Side Table £250.00

4. Brushstroke effects

The catwalk’s colour blocks get the graphic treatment with painterly splashes of teal, mustard and navy blue. A celebration of the bright and bold, it’ll bring warmth and energy to dreary winter days.


5. Warm metallics

Luxury Hotel Collection

Spring-fresh blush, grey and cool copper combinations give way to richer metallic tones with the unique power to add warmth and industrial edge. Brass and bronze are ones to watch, as are burnished, brushed and patina finishes.

6. Feature shelves

Gray & Willow Thea Vase

A kitchen collection artfully arranged on an open shelf is a fun and functional approach to storage. Keep it curated with a simple colour palette – we love the tonal greys and marble accents of this Scandi-inspired idea.

Gray & Willow Stone Dinnerware Range from £8.00

7. Luxe deco


The velvet revival shows no signs of slowing down – we’ve still got a crush on all things plush. This season, accent a key piece with statement metallic accessories and deco inspired prints to dial up the drama.

Biba Sencha Embroidered Cushion £35.00

Biba Gold Hammered Pendant £120.00

8. Checks

This heritage print is modern, masculine and oh-so-versatile. Try layering checked bed linen in cosy brushed flannel with touch-me textures like faux fur and lambswool for the ultimate Hygge winter bedroom.
