Discover The Biggest Home Decor Trends for AW24

Embrace Organic, Earthy Layers

The appeal of organic, earthy layers and textures lies in their ability to create a sense of warmth, comfort, and connection to nature within the home. In a world filled with screens and digital distractions, homeowners are seeking solace in spaces that evoke a sense of calm and authenticity. Think cosy throws, cushions, and bed linens casually thrown together to create a look that champions imperfection and individuality. From sumptuously soft materials to subtle textures and patterns, our range embodies the essence of this season's style trends.

Playful Colour Palettes & Bubbly Textures

Meet the colour palettes of the moment: rich jewel tones found in nature, muted earthy and pastel hues, and bold monochromatic shades. Our AW24 collection features colours like deep burgundy, forest green, ochre, and soft blush, perfect for adding an organic sense of warmth and depth to any space. Texture also plays a key role in creating both visual interest and tactile comfort. From plush velvet and chunky bouclé to rustic knits and woven textiles, don't be afraid to mix and match textures to create a personalised and eclectic look. Combine smooth textiles with rough-hewn wood, or layer chunky woven blankets over sleek leather furniture. The unexpected interplay of colours and textures will create a warm environment that invites conversation and relaxation. The key is to experiment and have fun with different combinations until you find the perfect balance of comfort and style.

Retro, Reimagined

We're seeing a resurgence of blending the old with the new, marrying retro aesthetics with contemporary flair to create a fresh and eclectic look. This season, classic patterns such as plaid, stripes, gingham, and soft vintage florals are making a comeback, but with a modern twist. Mixing vintage patterns with contemporary furniture and modern accessories creates a juxtaposition that feels both nostalgic and au courant, adding a touch of whimsy and personality to your space. For those who crave a pop of colour, consider incorporating bright accents in unexpected places, adding a playful touch to your interior styling. Here's a rundown on some of the vintage trends that are coming back in full force, with a few tips on how to incorporate them into your space with a 2024 style lens:

Plaid is back

One popular approach to incorporating plaid into modern interiors is through layering. Mixing different scales and colours of plaid within the same space adds depth and visual interest, creating a dynamic yet cohesive look. For example, pairing a large-scale plaid throw rug with smaller-scale plaid accent pillows can create a harmonious balance that feels both contemporary and inviting.

Stripes, with a twist

Stripes, another perennial favourite, are being reinterpreted in playful and unexpected ways this year. While classic vertical or horizontal stripes remain timeless, designers are experimenting with bold colours, varied widths, and unconventional orientations to inject a dose of personality into interior spaces. Mixing and matching different types of stripes, such as pinstripes with bold, chunky stripes, creates a dynamic and visually stimulating effect. Bold, graphic stripes can add a sense of drama and sophistication to minimalist interiors, while softer, more subtle stripes lend a touch of elegance and whimsy to eclectic spaces.

Giddy in Gingham

While the classic checkered pattern remains timeless, creative use of scale, colour, and application gives gingham a fresh and modern appeal. Instead of traditional red or blue, gingham is being reimagined in unexpected colour palettes, such as soft pastels or bold, vibrant hues. Incorporating gingham into modern interiors can be as simple as using it as an accent in soft furnishings like curtains, throw pillows, or table linens. Mixing gingham with other patterns, such as florals or geometric prints, adds visual interest and depth to your decor, creating a playful yet sophisticated look that feels distinctly contemporary.

Let's explore how you can infuse your home with the latest style concepts and trends of 2024.

How To Style: Your Living Room

Start by selecting a focal point for your living room, such as a statement sofa or a cosy reading nook, and build your design around it. Incorporate organic textures like rustic knits and woven textiles to add depth and warmth to your space. Celebrate the beauty in imperfection by effortlessly layering textures and patterns through your linens to create a space that feels both curated and relaxed. For added visual interest, introduce classic patterns reimagined in modern colour palettes, such as plaid or stripes, through accent pillows or throws. Don't be afraid to play with scale and proportion, mixing larger-scale patterns with smaller ones for a harmonious balance.

If you want to refresh your decorative couch cushions but aren't sure where to start, a good rule of thumb would be to choose three cushions in different styles, that share a consistent base colour: one patterned cushion, one monochromatic (solid colour) cushion, and one textured cushion. This is an easy trick for achieving a curated look that appears effortless. Still stuck for inspiration? Here are 5 couch cushion styling ideas to get you started.

Consider incorporating natural elements like potted plants or botanical prints to bring a sense of the outdoors inside and create a serene and inviting ambience.

How To Style: Your Bedroom

Start by layering your bed with soft, inviting linens in muted tones or soothing neutrals, capturing the essence of organic elegance. Opt for premium bed linens crafted from fabrics like pure cotton, flannelette or bamboo, ensuring both comfort and style. Embrace the concept of 'undone maximalism' - an effortlessly cool styling approach that's characterised by a lived-in but put-together appearance. Think casually draped bed linens layered across an unmade, yet beautifully styled bed - embracing the imperfect is the essence of this trend - no hospital corners in sight! By mixing and matching textures, such as pairing a chunky knit throw with velvet accent pillows, you can create a visually dynamic and inviting space. Add a touch of retro flair with decorative cushions featuring classic patterns reimagined in modern colour palettes. Complete the look with rustic bedside accessories and warm lighting that interplay beautifully with the various textures and colours throughout the room. Create a complete sensory experience by investing in a few scented candles or reed diffusers. Refer to our comprehensive guide on how to style a bed like a pro for general styling tips and tricks that you can use regardless of trends or the season.

How To Style: Your Bathroom

Soren Spencer Towel Collection

Incorporate plush bath towels in rich jewel tones or muted earthy hues, adding a pop of colour and indulgent comfort to your space. Hues of green will be hugely popular throughout the home this year - and the bathroom is no exception. Infuse your bathroom with nature by incorporating leafy greenery, vases and subtle green accents. Manchester is always an easy way to update your bathroom - refresh your bath sheets and hand towels, focusing on colour schemes that include understated natural tones such as soft peach, teal, or ochre. Tie the look together with a complementary toggle or woven bath mat - using a chunky yet soft texture for your bath mat creates a relaxing tactile sensation underfoot. Enhance the natural aesthetic with storage solutions such as woven baskets or ceramic jars, perfect for organising toiletries and adding a touch of rustic charm. Organic textures can be incorporated into your bathroom space with the use of accessories like textured stoneware - use these for storing your toothbrush, razors, or whatever you use in your daily routine.

How To Style: Your Kitchen

Allowing your decor styling to flow through to the kitchen is a powerful way to harmonise the aesthetic you've infused into your home. Start by incorporating classic patterns and natural elements through your choice of table linens, such as placemats and oversized napkins in soft, earthy tones. The revival of nostalgic motifs and patterns this year is a great opportunity to lean into retro styles that are now considered 'timeless' in place of 'dated'. Trends have come back around, and now - at long last - the family heirloom crockery or that op-shop find won't look so out of place in your chic table setting. Opt for delicate floral serving trays or ceramic bowls and platters adorned with fruit and flora motifs. Monochromatic dining sets in pastel and earthy palettes work perfectly with these busier patterns and serve as a foundational colour that grounds the overall look.
