AUTUMN 2016 TRENDS

Sarah

This autumn is all about a modern take on vintage glam. We’ve been seeing a lot of vintage influences from the major fashion houses in the recent AW16 Fashion Week shows, influences ranging from the Elizabethan golden era, to the roaring 20’s, glam-luxe 70’s and all the way to the eclectic 90’s.

As for interiors this autumn, we’re seeing a lot of warm colours in rusty and muted tones making a comeback. The focus is on creating a lived-in and layered feeling, something that was very popular in the 70’s. To create a modern take on this look, we recommend selecting a tone of a colour tone and working with it. Work tone-in-tone with the colour to set a base. Complete the look with various objects, ceramics and diverse types of materials. For example, combine a rich velvet sofa with a natural wood floor; an aged leather armchair with suede and satin cushions; speckled ceramic vases with brass candle holders and dusty floral wallpapers.

Our Kährs Oak Smoke wood floor has a beautiful cognac colour that is perfect as a base for your vintage interiors, yet one that is still very versatile throughout the seasons. With its brushed, oiled and smoked surface, this floor will add a warm and cozy feeling to your space.

Key colours: Mustard yellow, rusty orange, muted grey/blue, silver, brass, amber and emerald green.

AUTUMN LEAVES

Temperatures are rapidly dropping here in Dubai, and we can’t help but get a little more excited about the cooler climate and all the cosy festivities happening this season. Interior design bible Elle Decoration has stated that this autumn is all about “feathers and bold patterns combined in a wide range of shades such as soil, chestnut and rust mixed with metallic shimmering copper, gold and amber with accent colours in deep red and bright blue.” And as for the floor? Kährs Domo wood flooring – an extremely rustic 2-strip board with knots, cracks and a beautiful deep golden brown colour – is a perfect match to this autumn’s colour palette.

Another great source of inspiration is Pennsylvania-native Anthropologie. They definitely know how to inspire with their beautiful images and styling, and have got us seriously excited for a more rustic, layered, countryside autumn with their new November Lookbook, set perfectly against the the backdrop of the picturesque Scottish isles of Jura and Islay. Now we’re not only excited for the cooler climate, but also for visiting beautiful Scotland! Wow, what a landscape.

VINTAGE FLOWER CHILD

Decorate your child’s room with dusted pink florals set against a clean white contrast (e.g. a crisp white wood floor like Kährs Ash Alabaster) to create a calm, vintage and nostalgic feeling in the space. Decorating in this romantic neo-floral bohemian style is not only very on-trend and cool; it is also a design scheme that is guaranteed to evoke happiness and inspiration from your child.

BLACK COPPER

Though we’re still waiting for the hyped store to open in the UAE, H&M Home‘s online store inspires us with romantic Bohemian Vintage style this autumn.

Yes, Autumn is just around the corner! And if you, like us, can’t wait for the temperatures to drop a little (or a lot) – then planning for an autumn interior design scheme makes the wait a little less tedious and a lot more exciting. Now, although we don’t really get that cozy autumn feel outdoors, we can always create the feel indoors. So, this autumn we say hello to a darker, smouldering new take on romantic bohemian: bohemian vintage! To achieve this look, combine shiny copper metallics with dark graphite grays and dusty pinks in rugged linen textures and vintage bohemian floral prints.

And if you’re looking for something a little extra special, something so very unique and eye-catching to give that bit of glam-pop to your bohemian vintage look, then say hello to Kährs über-cool wood floor, Black Copper. This 1-strip ash wood floor has a black stain and copper metallic in the pores, and is finished off with a high-gloss lacquer that further enhances the shimmering metallic copper. Absolutely stunning!
