What’s hot in the world of interior design this autumn?

As we head towards autumn, there’s some pretty definitive trends making their rounds on Pinterest, Houzz and other leading design hubs.

If you’re planning on making any upgrades to your home in time for the new season, check out the following unmissable interior design trends for autumn 2021.

Deep green

As summer gives way to autumn, green is emerging as a must have shade for the new season, and the deeper the better. Combine deep shades of green with autumnal hues like gold, red, yellows and browns, to create an interior fit for the arrival of this beautiful time of year.

Mixed texture

Autumn has long been synonymous with introducing luxury textures to create a warming homely vibe as the weather cools and the nights turn darker. This autumn is all about mixing textures to bring a touch of flamboyance to living spaces.

Layer different textures to craft an interior that is rich in colour, and full of depth. Texture does not have to be confined to fabric, it can come through a host of different ways, such as combing matte and glazed ornaments, or placing a shabby rug in front of a polished granite fireplace hearth.


The autumn is all about dousing homes in the classy French style that blends antique components with a contemporary design, to create a look known as Clacissim. The style is centred on furniture or architecture which boasts classical features, infused with contemporary elements to ensure the style never goes out of trend.

Comforting neutrals

Comforting neutrals never go out of style, and none more so than this autumn. Introduce a neutral colour palette to other bolder tones, such as deep, rich greens, to create a calming ambiance in your living space.

Neutral colours don’t have to be restricted to walls. Think about painting furniture in subdued tones, to contrast stylishly with more autumnally decorated walls.

Neoetnic design

The new season is eying up what’s been labelled as a neoetnic style that’s inspired by iconic Nordic patterns. This Nordic style will bring bohemian chicness to any living space.

Now sit back, snuggle up and enjoy your interior fit for autumn 2021, as the cold weather rolls in.
