This week to assist you in your deliberations we offer some very helpful insights from ‘Homestolove.com.au’ and a recent interview with Principal Stylist and Director of Vault Interiors, Justine Wilson.

The autumn/ winter decor trends to embrace for chic and cosy interiors
A new season brings a slew of new trends. Here’s how to breathe new life into your interiors with as little effort and as much impact as possible.
Autumn is a time of year where there is the perfect mix of warm sun and cool breezes, coupled with the beautiful colours of the turning landscape,” says Vault Interiors Director and Principal Stylist Justine Wilson. “When it comes to interiors, autumn is the perfect time to embrace this transitional feeling – and use it as a time to reset, refresh, and prepare your abode for the cooler months.”
Here, Justine shares the autumn/winter decor and design trends for 2022 and how to embrace them in your own home to create a chic and cosy haven.
Autumn is all about embracing earthy and warm tones and this year we’re seeing a resurgence in these tones in our abodes. Think hues of mustard, brown and deep greens. “You can introduce colour through a variety of ways, such as artwork, accessories, florals, and soft furnishings, the trick is to not overdo it, rather work in small accents throughout your home,” says Justine.
“Autumn styling is all about layers, think heavy coverlets and blankets on your bed, snuggly throws on your sofa, lots of plush cushions and warm rugs underfoot,” Justine explains. “You can layer many textures together also, think of materials such as velvet, wool, cashmere and flannel and thick natural linens. By including these materials, you will create an inviting and cosy feel in your space.”
We’re just going to come right out and say it pattern is officially back. And we, for one, couldn’t be more excited. “This year I think we will see lots of pattern in autumn decoration trends, classics such as tweed and tartan will be back with force, especially as many embrace the “cottage core aesthetic,” Justine says. But it’s not just the classics that are experiencing a renaissance. According to Justine, we can expect to see a lot more floral prints adorning our interiors this season. And no, not the pretty pink kind you’re thinking of. “I also think floral patterns will be popular, but unlike spring and summer they will be more muted moody colourways in dark emeralds, navy tones, and warm rust tones,” she says.
bring the outside in
“Autumn is about feeling cosy and being prepared, so why not have your interiors overflowing with fresh produce displayed in pretty ways, think pears in a bowl, jars of nuts and herb cuttings displayed on your counters,” Justine says. “You can also bring the outside in with beautiful vases of greenery, the last bright blooms of the summer season, and pretty branches displayed simply in urns or vessels. As the light fades, having pretty muted lighting can really help create an atmosphere, so use tables and floor lamps and candles to create a cosy scene.”
