Although it’s not officially Autumn just yet we’ve already said goodbye to the last days of Summer and are pretty excited to embrace the cooler months and nest in our cosy homes. Transitioning from Summer to Autumn means brand new interior trends giving us a chance to start preparing our homes for the coming months.

There are some exciting trends to consider for Autumn which include deeper, dark shades for walls, bright accents and natural materials however the first one we’re going to focus on (and possibly one of our favourites) is modern monochrome.

Timeless in its design this trend is all about bold statement pieces combined with eye catching prints to create a show stopping focal point. This look is exceptionally bold making it the perfect choice for bedrooms and living rooms.

Take a look at our moodboard below for inspiration

Use shades of black and white to create a contemporary feel to this trend; think Scandi white combined with rustic dark grey and black. This trend relies on warmer tones such as copper and bronze being used to complement the monochrome design creating the perfect balance. Emerald green is also a firm favourite for AW17 combine this rich colour with the striking shades of white and black to create a decadent feel.


Decorating with this trend is easy as you can go as extravagant as you like. For a statement look opt for larger furniture items such as an armchair or console table finished in a stunning black and white. Soft furnishings, rugs and wallpaper are a great way to inject monochrome influences into your home without spending a fortune. Introduce the warming tones through decorative accessories such as mirrors, lanterns, table lamps and even trays which have become extremely popular.

Our range of copper and bronze finished mirrors are perfect for striking a balance between style and comfort. The warming tones present in these mirrors will help create a cosy feel offering a relaxed feel to the monochrome décor.
