Autumn Winter Home and Living Trends 2018

With Autumn arriving I like to do a sort of Spring clean and refresh the home ready for the Winter months. By doing this it makes the home more cosy and snuggly ready for the colder months. It’s also a fantastic time now that Summer has been and gone to research and update the decor and soft furnishings. I love to browse online for home interior trends for ideas.  So while I have been doing my research I’d thought I would share with you what I’ve found for the Autumn Winter home living trends 2018.

Autumn/Winter Key Home Decor Trends 2018

  • Woodland

This has to be my favourite trend I’ve found so far. I think of Autumn as wandering through the woods seeing all the marvellous colours and textures around me. All the browns, oranges, russet, plum and damson colours. These are in fact the key colours this Autumn.

These are in fact the key colours this Autumn. Texture wise it's all about dried flower arrangements, woods, woollen chunky knits from giant knitting, and rustic country linens. The theme can be shown to be sort of like hibernating, the feeling of contentment and hygge - creating a happy home. Hygge style.

My Sunday Photo – A Sunny Autumn Day

Friday was a lovely but cold sunny Autumn day. We went for a little walk around the park before our baby sensory class, and the sky was so blue.

Happy Sunday!

Earlier in the week we were getting dressed ready to go out and I happened to catch this shot of baby girl staring at the washing machine while in her red racing car walker. Now Autumn is here we have brought out the woolly bunny ears hat!

Bedding Tips: To Be Fall Ready & Sleep Better

We are now leaving the Summer behind us and heading into Autumn. With the evenings beginning to cool it’s time to think about changing the bedding for having a better nights sleep. I love this time of year. With fall beginning, leaves falling from the trees, colder nights. It’s time to dig out the Autumn and Winter duvet and prepare the bedroom.

I have put some tips together to help you get Fall ready:

Cosy Bedding

I absolutely adore warm snuggly duvet with gorgeous duvet covers. You can get some really lovely duvet covers which can compliment your Autumn bedroom. A relaxing atmosphere in the bedroom can make for better sleep.

Here are some of my favourite Autumn/Winter duvet cover designs.

This stunning stag design gives your bedroom that toasty log cabin feel.

The Innsbruck Grey Duvet gives you the Winter and Christmassy feeling.

You can also add bedspreads and throws to your bed for extra warmth. I love rustic colours and country patterns for this time of year for the bedroom. It really freshens up the whole room, yet keeping it warm and cosy.

Adding a patterned duvet with geometric shapes adds another dimension to the theme of your bedroom.

Curtains

Why not invest in some lovely new curtains for your Autumn bedroom to update the look. I think pretty designed curtains make a room that extra special.

These latte coloured curtains are the perfect shade of colour for Autumn. Curtains are great for keeping out the cooler air for this time of year, leaving you to have a better nights sleep.

If you are planning on updating your bedroom for the fall season, why not also take a look at the children’s bedrooms.

Kids need to have the perfect sleep-inducing environment. A room that is quiet, dark and cool can help to promote better sleeping habits.

To achieve this environment, thick and heavy curtains or blackout curtains are key. There are a fantastic range of children’s curtains for Autumn on Yorkshire Linen.

I have to say that my favourite are the moonlight navy blackout curtains. Perfect for that dreamy kids bedroom, yet blocking out the light.

Accessories

There are some wonderful accessories out there that you can find for the bedroom. Lovely pictures, cushions and a thick warm cosy rug are great additions to your Autumn bedroom to add colour and style.

Early Sunday morning walk down by the water at Boscawen Park. Damp, misty, Autumn, leaves, peaceful.
