Unfortunately summer is almost behind us, and as daylight fades, so does the light and bright interior trends of months gone by. Instead, autumn/winter 2017 welcomes dark, sultry tones. And not just blacks and greys, but the underbelly of earthy tones like swamp greens, rusty terracottas and muddy browns – ideal colours to curl up and hibernate to this winter.
If warm, dark and moody is your thing, we’ve got some ideas on how you can create this look in your home.
- Dark green kitchen cabinets – There are all sorts of gorgeous dark green cabinets available now, in all sorts of styles including handless modern and traditional shaker. They look perfect paired with either a light marble or dark granite worktop, dark, glassy tiles, brass accessories and plenty of plants.
- Wilderness inspired wallpapers – Bright green palm leaves and golden pineapples be gone, it’s the turn of foggy forests and misty lakes to cover our walls. To create a room so atmospheric, it could give you chills, pick out the dark colours from the wallpaper to match your furnishings – plenty of dark woods, blues and greens.
- Terracotta returns – For everyone who held on to those terracotta tiles, you’ll be thrilled to learn that they’re making a comeback, and in a big way. We won’t just feel terracotta under our feet but the colour will cover walls, furniture and accessories. For a really on trend look pair your terracotta tiles with a dark wall colour and furniture.
