Many of these top trends draw together threads of natural influence and cosiness – things that tend to remain popular autumn after autumn. But what do these particular manifestations of the overarching autumn trends say about those who gravitate towards them, and how are they coming to life in our homes?
1. Bouclé chairs – Elegant
If you find yourself reaching for a white bouclé trend this autumn, you are certainly someone who always has your finger on the pulse – you are always decked out in the latest fashions and know what’s in and when. You have an air of easy elegance and tend to seek the perfect combination of form and function throughout different aspects of your life. There’s no shame in wanting to look good and classy, and you know how to make it happen!
2. Maximalism – Bold
Maximalism is all about being bold with your choices. If you lean towards this enduring style this autumn, you are confident and know what you want, always picking the best bits of life to get stuck into. You’re not afraid to try new things and find joy in discovering the order in the chaos. You’re likely quick to excite and tend to have a more optimistic outlook, generally looking to the future and seeking the next big adventure.
3. Modern Farmhouse – Sophisticated
If your home is decked out with modern farmhouse decor and your rooms pay homage to rustic origins while embracing a modern update, you are likely someone who’s sophisticated in taste and bearing. You are practical but not militant, appreciating structure in your life but still making room for occasional spontaneity. You don’t like to make a fuss but seek clarity when you need to. While you may be quiet, you hold your head high and have a refined air about you. You appreciate both pragmatism and whimsy, finding a balance in your daily routines.
4. Earthy Tones – Earnest
If you love interiors swathed in earth tones, you likely have a deep appreciation of the natural world and are perhaps interested in wider environmental issues and sustainability. You are forward-thinking and open-minded, yet always have time to embrace the simple things.
Seeking peace and tranquillity for yourself and those around you is an important part of who you are – you care. You do things at your own pace, favouring the slow and mindful approach rather than rushing headfirst into things.
5. Open Shelving – Creative
If you’re drawn towards open shelving in the home, you’ve likely got a strong creative mind and love finding clever solutions to any problems that arise. You’re determined and inventive – a true original! You appreciate different perspectives and enjoy finding inspiration from a variety of places, opening your eyes to everything the world has to offer. Your interests are diverse, and you always have a project in the works or a new hobby on the horizon.
