Autumn Trends



Autumn is a time when our attention naturally turns to home.

We start to welcome warm transitional layers indoors whilst enjoying the great outdoors.

Finer wool floors hit the right note. Nature colours turn from green to mellow shades of burnt orange, russet red and golden brown.

Bring these tones and textures slowly into your home and combine with new season curves. Essentially anything that feels warm, welcoming and cosy is in! 

Enjoy our top six trends for the new season. 

Rebellious Plaid


Loved by royals and rocked by punks, tartan is once again enjoying a resurgence in both hipster style and home design. It represents rebellion and homeliness. It offers a sense of comfort and nostalgia. 

This storied textile is timeless, and we have a vibrant Quirky Tartan for autumn. After all, as Elle Decoration declares,

"who needs hygge when you can have a highland fling?"

Work this trend with tweeds and checks too. 

Pastel Palette


Fall in love with the pastel trend. 

Modern pastels are making a style comeback and keeping our homes calm yet contemporary.

Wool Rhythm tonal stripes are tinted with colour. Think lilac, baby blue, mint green and even soft lemon that give us a sense of wellness. 

These soothing stripes are easy to live with and work in harmony, linking interior spaces.

Desert Sand


Sandy desert shades are our interior friend. For drama, add a touch of colour to make it come alive.

To spice up this colour scheme for autumn, try a pinch of paprika, terracotta's hot cousin. 

Sandy colours with burnt tones of orange give interiors a luxurious feeling.

This minimal look is warming up! 

Material Mix


Seasonal layering is about material mix. 

Wool and sisal is the clever combination as homes move into early autumn months.

Woosie brings out the best qualities of these two natural fibres which are firm favourites in interiors. The three-ply woollen yarn gives the soft and luxurious feel underfoot while the hardwearing sisal adds rustic texture and lustrous sheen. 

Free Form


Fluid lines with a playful hand-drawn look flow into interiors. 

Swirls and twirls are the design details to look out for this season. 

Here is Schumacher's Painterly Windowpane fabric by Miles Redd.

Ride the wave at home with charmingly wonky and artistic lines. 

Patch Work


Be arty in your interiors with patchwork patterns that give your home a beautiful sense of craftsmanship. 

The Quirky Patch pattern is now available as wall-to-wall carpet, narrow width runners and as bespoke, made to measure rugs. It is designed by British textile icon Margo Selby and has been made in the UK from British Wool. 

Artist-designer Susi Bellamy combines patchwork patterns with graphic woody grain on her new cushions and lampshades. 

Perhaps designers had rising energy costs on their minds for autumn. Turn the heating down and swathe yourself in knitwear and your home in woolly textures. 

For autumn floors, wool is the word.
