We have seen a lot of this style before, but the fact is, brands still love it, and we still love it. Leading the way is velvet, we are seeing it everywhere, on furniture, lighting and soft furnishings.

Velvet is the simplist way to get a luxurious feel in your home, whether it’s a statement chair or a few cushions on a sofa. Get extra glam with accessories like gold framed mirrors and smoked glass table tops.

Key colours for this trend are ochre and pink, with accents of brass and gold. This is what we are seeing a lot of but other colours appearing for Autumn are deep blue and burgandy.

With a heavy art deco influence this trend explores interesting shapes and patterns. For example round table tops with square frames, painted detail on cabinets and angular mirrors with interesting shapes. Luxe Living is about pushing the look that little bit further than before, be brave with it and own it.

The new SNOFSA table clock from Ikea is a perfect addition to a bedroom. Not only is it a great style, a nod to Art Deco with a slightly modernised silhouette, but also the clever designers have introduced a silent mechanism so no annoying ticking sound. 

In a brass coloured finish, it’s on trend, and just £12.

Following on from the beginning of this year Art deco inspired interiors are still big. Introducing this 1920s look into your home will bring glamour and opulence, wether a small corner or a whole room.

You can hint at this trend or go full on, but be careful not to over indulge as you don’t want it to look themed or staged. This look focuses mainly on two key areas, pattern and furniture, with bold gold designs set against black and rich blue backgrounds on wallpapers and art.

The furniture comes in the form of drinks trolleys and statement armchairs. A good place to start is with a classic round trolley with marble shelves, a design that mixes straight lines and circles, very much echoing the strong print designs of the Art Deco era.

Combine this with a statement chair – velvet is a must – with brass or gold legs and you will have the perfect start to the look. Keep the walls dark to create more drama with dark green, blues and of course black.

Accessories to consider would be classic angled mirrors and perhaps a quirky lamp influenced by the 1920s. As well as this you could continue the feel with soft furnishings like a fringed pillow [ pictured ].
