Autumn, with its golden leaves and cosy atmosphere, always inspires change. As we welcome the season of hot cocoa, fluffy throws, and fireside chats, the interior design world also presents fresh trends. 2023 is no exception. Here’s a roundup of the most dominant autumn design themes we’re seeing at Paradise & Gell this year.
Deep Earth Tones
Gone are the days of pastel and muted colours of spring. This autumn, Isle of Man homes are painted in deep, rich earth tones like burnt orange, terracotta, olive green, and deep aubergine. These colours resonate with the changing leaves outside and create a cosy, warming effect inside.
Sustainability remains at the forefront of design. More homeowners are opting for furnishings and décor that boast an eco-friendly pedigree. Whether it’s recycled glass vases, bamboo furniture, or upcycled vintage finds, the message is clear: design with an environmental conscience is in vogue.
To create more tactile interiors, mixed textures are taking centre stage. Think velvet cushions on leather sofas or rough linen curtains paired with silk throws. This play on textures creates depth and adds a touch of luxury to spaces.
While house plants have been trending for a while, autumn 2023 is witnessing a surge in botanical prints in wallpapers, textiles, and art. Ferns, monstera leaves, and even vintage floral patterns are becoming focal points in many interiors.
A trend that complements the eco-chic movement is the predominance of natural wood. Raw, unpolished wooden pieces, whether it’s a dining table or a sculptural piece, are adorning Isle of Man homes. They bring in an element of rustic charm and grounding energy.
The shorter days of autumn make innovative lighting a necessity. This year, statement lighting fixtures, especially those made with artisanal craftsmanship, are shining brightly. From woven chandeliers to geometric pendant lights, unique lighting pieces are stealing the limelight.
Another trend worth noting is the resurgence of vintage pieces. Nostalgia seems to be playing a huge role as retro furniture, especially from the 70s and 80s, is making a comeback. However, the twist is in blending these pieces seamlessly with contemporary styles.
Handcrafted, bespoke pieces are highly valued this season. Whether it’s pottery, hand-woven textiles, or custom-made furniture, the touch of the artisan is a cherished aspect in UK homes.
In conclusion, Autumn 2023 in the Isle of Man is about creating spaces that are visually appealing and nurturing for the soul. As the lines between home, work, and leisure continue to blur, interior design is adapting to create versatile, comforting spaces environment.
