INTERIORS THE HOTTEST HOME AND INTERIOR DESIGN TRENDS FOR AUTUMN/WINTER 2018 cont. Zoeppritz Crack Cushion, £47, GOLD! It’s impossible to write gold! without the addition of an exclamation mark, especially when it’s been hailed as a key interiors trend with which to adorn our homes. How fabulous. Creeping into homes across the country for the best part of this year, our love of all things gold! – from lamps, cushions, bookshelves and carpet, yes…carpet – shows no sign of decline and the colour has leapt out of the ‘accessories’ bracket right into ‘anything goes’; be brave and embrace rugs, throws and poufs in this glamorous and decadent hue. J by Jasper Conran Gold Chevron Velvet Throw, £125, Unity Rose Gold Lamp Base, £70, FOLK Akit Rattan Armchair, £395, One of the great benefits of social media has been the exposure that it’s given to imaginative crafters and makers of handcrafted homewares. In line with a move from matching aesthetics towards bolder, more clashing looks, folk-inspired pieces are key this autumn/winter to a warm, but modern feel throughout your home. Seek out textiles and decoration that are visually imaginative, but also look cosy enough to sink and snuggle into as we enter the season’s darker, colder months.
