It may not be a choice of colour that jumps out at you, but beige is to take over our lives and homes during 2019. No longer is it seen as dull, lifeless and dated, beige is actually a warming & calming colour which acts as a nuetral backdrop to bolder shades.
Layer up different shades of beige with accents of brass, gold, wood and additional colours of black and white, creating a very collated room.
There are so many accessories and soft furnishing options to bring a bit of beige into your home. H&M Home has jumped on this trend and has a huge choice of cushions, throws and bedding to add a hint to a room
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.
This season we have started to see more decoration and pattern on furniture and accessories. Side cabinets, consoles and coffee tables have inlaid tiles and wood with decorative patterns and colours.
A brand where you can see a lot of this is anthropologie.com with gorgeous designs and colours.
We are also seeing decoration on ceramics like vases and bowls. They become textural and tactile.
Wood is clearly a big choice for all, with a lot of mixed materials being used on furniture. Parquet finishes and carved wood feature heavily. This carved look also translates to bed headboards and room dividers.
It seems the home accessory of the season is the pouffe. Firmly back as a key piece of furniture in a lounge (or any other room) and with floral flouncy ones a distant memory of the 80s; the pouffe is now the perfect accessory to add a splash of colour or pop of pattern into a room.
There’s a plethora to choose from across the high street, designer and online stores and whatever trend you use as your styling guide, there’s a pouffe to suit the look.
We’ve picked a selection of our favourites to suit current trends including – colour pop, embellished, midcentury monochrome, maximalist, traveller and artisan.

The herringbone trend has had a rise in popularity during the last couple of years, although it’s never ever really been out of favour.
It’s a classic look, a design-minded pattern and now this herringbone format has found new places to feature, not just floors and walls in wood or ceramic, but also cupboard fronts, kitchen doors, table tops and the pattern even transfers into fabrics and of course has always been a knitting pattern – thriving at the moment for throws and cushions.
All the richness, all the luxury, wrapped up in one colour – indigo. This dark shade is currently best on mass to make a super rich feel to an interior. Embrace wall colour, rugs and soft furnishings to create the strongest look with small metallic, blush or other rich jewel tone highlights.
For a lighter look match indigo with clean white, to lift and brighten a room. Use rich blue tones on walls and furniture, but use white for floors, ceilings and in patterns on the soft furnishings.
