    Winter Design Trends

    Winter design trends 2018

    The season of overindulgence is here, and our interiors are following suit. Bold, theatrical pieces combine historic shapes with classic details for winter 2018. Think grand theatres and libraries: dark-stained wood, marble and velvet. Balanced with high-gloss finishes and jewel tones, for max cosy feels.

    Winter living room trends

    Luxe is our living room look this winter, with the focus on upholstery – velvets are richly coloured and textured, and furniture legs are dark. Metallic accents are a festive touch, with printed accessories putting a contemporary spin on classic patterns.

    For winter 2018, think grand theatres and libraries: dark-stained wood, marble and velvet.

    Winter dining room trends

    Dining rooms make a dramatic statement this season. Deep blue and burnt orange make this space occasion-worthy. More traditional tables are mango wood or walnut, while contemporary options mix metal with smoked glass.

    Winter bedroom trends

    Velvet’s made its way to the bedroom for winter 2018, across curtains, lampshades and upholstered beds. Details like pleats and channelling add regal luxe, and so do reimagined prints like jacquard.

    Winter design details

    Animalia prints on crushed velvet accessories bring contemporary chinoiserie to living spaces. And as outside gets darker, the spotlight’s on lighting inside – think velvet lampshades and textured glass pendants. Adding to this season’s indulgence, we’ve collaborated with designers like Ian Archer, Margaux Keller and Barbara Hulanicki.

    Winter colour palette

    Teal, navy, forest green and burnt orange are winter 2018’s hero colours. These jewel tones look bright against dark woods, and complement metallic tones like gold and brass.
