Across the high street homeware stores, and online, there’s a huge amount of homewares inspired by Native American tribal patterns.

The colours are strong but not too bright and these homewares sit well in a predominantly neutral tone interior. Cream or white walls and floors, lots of natural wood and then texture and pattern from all the gorgeous rugs, throws and wall hangings. It’s a truly ‘traveller’ and earthy trend that creates warm, timeless style and feel to a room, and can be added to with trinkets and paraphernalia from travels.

Often fashion trends will give inspiration to other products, particularly homeware. This season heading into 2017 sees the rich tone of potters clay, alongside other similar shades like cinnamon and chilli powder with accents of copper to compliment, creating a warm calming space.

Use these earthy colours on a painted feature wall and accessorize with lighter soft furnishings in cream or white. Alternatively keep the walls light and opt for a tanned leather sofa and some key wooden furniture. Bring print into a room with cushions and rugs, with this colour lending itself well to a Maroccon or Aztec inspired room, you can have fun with pattern and fabrics.

Additional colours to consider to sit alongside clay are dark teal and cream.

A new trend appearing for AW 16/17 is Native; a mix of craft, nomadic influences and natural tones alongside strong pattern and print on soft furnishings and furniture. Patterns to look out for a zig zag, arrows and contemporary Aztec. 

Colour plays a big role with statement rugs and throw bringing a room to life. Perhaps look at macrame wall hanging to bring texture and interest to a space, mixing it alongside prints and artwork to create a feature wall.

Inspiration for this trend also comes from animals and Native American illustrations looking to the past but with a modern twist and construction, antlers and sheep skulls work brilliantly. This trend is about creating a cosy and homely feel to a room. Warmth comes from heavy knitted & fur throws, vibrant printed rugs and cushions and if you are feeling brave go for a statement armchair or sofa in a strong pattern. All these elements bring the look together, even in an already white or nuetral room. 

The slightly rustic feel continues with hand crafted pieces in lighting, with illustrated furniture a key look. Solid units softened with pattern and colour in panels really help bring this look together. Pick and choose how far you want to go with the native trend, small details can go a long way so no need to over clutter.
