Brave and Bold
"Colour palettes for AW18 are deep, dramatic and full of life. Think dark pigments, rich blues, jungle greens and vibrant orange tones."
Make it Marble
"Marble had a strong start to 2018 and it doesn’t look to be going anywhere any time soon. The slight tweak for AW18 is a twist of Italian Terrazzo and strong, coloured veins. Particularly prominent are greens, yellows and blues."
"This style is all about bringing the outside in and adding foliage to your interiors, both in colour and plant form. Lush tropical shades and deep emerald greens are key. In place of the recent copper surge, steer more towards brass tones to complement this look."
"Artisan has been prevalent since last year, but just like marble it’s going from strength to strength. Think raw, handmade, and mismatched. An abundance of natural materials presented in muted, worn tones. For AW18, try Wabi Sabi and Kintsugi (the art of the imperfect) and repairing ceramic cracks with gold."
"Autumn will have us waving goodbye to lighter scandi woods and welcoming in the darker, richer stains. Lots of mid-century influences with warm Walnuts and furniture shapes that pack a punch. The wood stains paired with this season’s blue hue = perfection!"
"The Global trend looks set to carry us through from Summer to Autumn. Lots of clashing folk prints, raw textiles, travel references and wall-to-wall patterns. The only change we’ll see is the palette being much more toned down and earthy when compared with its Summer counterpart."
