As we move towards the end of the year and head towards winter there is going to be a dramatic shift in furniture trends.

Monochrome is the strongest look for the season and floral wallpaper is back in a big way. Deeper, darker shades for walls and accessories will be very en vogue. But one of the most exciting trends is colour blocking. If you can’t decide on one colour then use several and pick contrasting shades for maximum impact.

In terms of colours, Teal and Emerald Green will be leading the way. Teal is perfect for giving a room a brighter, uplifting feel. As a tone it sits between blue and turquoise and works well when combined with white.

Nature inspired hues will be all the rage this winter and what better colour to reflect this than Emerald Green. It’s a rich colour that conjures up nature and organic things and it combines very well with blush pinks and copper accessories. The natural look will be very prevalent this winter. Organic ceramics, woven lamp shades and linen tablecloths will feature strongly. Colours within this look will include soft creams, whites and a variety of soft and dark greys.

Velvet makes a welcome return to this winter’s furniture trends. This rich fabric gives colours a luxurious and vibrant feel and adds texture to a room. Choose colours that are warm and welcoming such as deep cranberry and burnt orange. If you don’t want to buy a new sofa then consider a velvet throw or some velvet scatter cushions. Monochrome is the strongest trend emerging for this winter.

It’s a bold look but it can be softened with the introduction of elements of copper as well as black and white accessories. Strong prints and stripes in monochrome can make a dramatic statement in any room of your house.

Ditch the plain or striped wallpaper and go floral!

It’s back and it’s back in a big way. Big beautiful prints in tones of dove grey, emerald and blush will create a soft romantic feel to your room. And finally it’s time to go Geometric.

Squares and rectangles are so yesterday. Intricate tile designs are very in as are Mosaics. These can work equally well in both modern and traditional settings. Try a Herringbone or basket-weave design for maximum impact.
