Autumn Edit: the hottest interior design trends of 2019
From velvet glamour to wicker wonderlands, here are autumn's interior design trends that you need in your home
At the beginning of the year, we identified that the interior design trends of 2019 would be governed by a turn towards maximalism. We predicted bold colours and textures, but showrooms at major design events have also shown an interest in natural materials and retro design. Here are the autumnal trends that you should be looking out for in order to turn your pad into a palace.
Good news for groovy dudes and far-out chicks: the 70s is back. Urban Outfitters Home's new Ria range was one of the most exciting product launches of Clerkenwell Design Week. After a long hiatus, rattan and wicker are now coming back in vogue and we love the relaxed atmosphere that they bring into a living space. Seek out some folding screens, pampas plants, scented candles, and antique rugs to complete your magical flower child habitat.

From Kettle's Yard in Cambridge to Giacometti's studio in Paris, the art world is experiencing a rising interest in the domestic settings in lieu of the gallery space. Be inspired to recreate your own bohemian art studio home by seeking out the latest design and artist collaborations. Italian design brand Seletti brings colour and creativity back into home decor with their quirky artist collaborations. Marrakesh-based design studio Lrnce also makes wonderfully artistic pillowcases and textiles. You can find many of their designs on East London-based design platform A New Tribe, who also stock a number of ceramics by artists.

Plants taking over
The Economist recently reported a spike in millennial house plant sales. You only need a perfunctory glance at Instagram to find plenty of young urbanites enthusing about their monsteras and fiddle fig trees. Green interiors were all the rage at Milan Design Week as the Gucci Décor pop-up living room attracted a hoard of design-hungry Instagrammers as part of the Salone del Mobile 2019.

The craft of weaving seems to be receiving attention anew in the design world. Luxury fashion house Loewe staged live basket weaving demonstrations Milan Design Week as well as in their new Mayfair store during London Craft Week. If you're a fan of Scandinavian design then this is something you should try and experiment with as woven textures are often used to bring softness into Nordic interiors.

Until recently, velvet has held a bad rap as an old-fashioned fabric which recalls the drab fustiness of grandparents' living rooms. But now many designers are bringing this lavish material into the modern era, and, as you can see from Gucci's pop up, velvet touches are a great way to bring a bit of decadence and gothic glamour into your home. Feel like royalty and embrace this luxurious upholstery during the colder months.
