MIX IN METALLICS
Magpies rejoice – a bit of subtle shine is the easiest way to upgrade a space that’s feeling a little subdued, and really, the muted metallic is a kind of neutral in itself, with longevity far beyond any seasonal trend. As ever, if you’re looking to add warmth to neutral tones, go for gold, brass or copper accents. This season’s coppers are a little darker than the blush and matte copper combos we see in spring and summer – think warm and rich, not rose gold.

PLAY WITH PRINT
Get pops of pattern right and they’ll have maximum impact for minimum effort – just our kind of thing. Avoid punchy graphic print in favour of those inspired by the natural world, which are perfect for print-phobics – they’ll add softness and visual relief to layers of neutrals without creating too much contrast. Come autumn, summer’s statement blooms can feel jarring, so swap them for on-trend leaf patterns - these simple, silhouetted botanical prints have serious Scandi appeal.
