Autumn Interior Design: The trends that are defining the season

As the leaves change colour and a crisp, fragrant chill fills the air, it’s time to look to the autumn interior design trends of 2023 for some seasonal inspiration.

Autumn is the season of rich, fiery hues and layered, intricate textures. Outside, leaves of yellow, orange, red and brown are littering the forest floor and the pavements, creating dense carpets of crisp technicolour beneath our feet, whilst the hedgerows are bursting with swathes of berries in rich jewel tones.

This really is a truly vibrant season, presenting the perfect opportunity to inject a little life into our homes and refresh our interiors as the days get shorter and darker, and we grow more and more inclined to cosy up and nest indoors. So, in celebration of this inspiring season, we’d like to take a look at a handful of our favourite trends that are dominating the interior design landscape this autumn. 

1. Embrace nature-inspired colour palettes

This year designers are drawing inspiration from the natural beauty of autumn’s rapturous colour palette as the season turns. Earthy tones such as warm browns, muted reds, deep greens and burnt oranges are very popular right now, evoking the changing leaves, the comforting feel of wood and the grounding, calming essence of the natural world. Set off by accents of mustard yellow and muted purples, this autumnal palette is guaranteed to bring a sense of warmth, cosiness and serenity to your space. 

2. Connect to nature through biophilic design

Biophilic design is gaining a lot of traction this autumn. This design concept is all about bringing the great outdoors inside of your home in order to promote wellbeing, relaxation and a sense of calm. Indoor plants, natural materials and sunlight can significantly enhance the overall atmosphere of a space. 

3. Focus on natural materials 

Tying closely in with the emphasis on biophilic design, the focus on natural materials is a key autumn interior design trend for 2023. By incorporating elements of wood, stone, copper, brass and marble into your space, you can easily foster an environment that feels grounding and serene. It’s also worth noting that rattan and cane pieces are making a big comeback, harking back to the interior design trends of the 1970s whilst also tying into the current emphasis on ‘back to nature’ design elements. 

4. Mix textures for depth and comfort

Autumn is the season for embracing layers, textures, and depth in our homes, and the autumn interior design trends of 2023 are no exception to this rule. As temperatures drop outside and everything gets a little more crisp, we recommend introducing plush rugs, velvet upholstery and woven blankets into your space to provide a sensory experience that will create a cosy, inviting ambience. 

5. Bring in the autumn florals

One of the easiest design trends to embrace this season is the use of autumnal florals throughout your home, offering the chance to bring in some seasonal accents and spruce up your space without the need to make any drastic changes to your interiors or spend a lot of money! You can try this trend out yourself by arranging some dried flowers, seedheads and stems in a simple glass vase or earthenware jug for an instant hit of rustic, autumnal charm. You could even use dried eucalyptus for a beautiful display of muted greenery and subtle texture.

Stylish, magnificent, inspirational...

I have recently renovated a bungalow and used Q interiors for the interior design.  I have been so pleased with the advice and support and the end result is fantastic.  I am recently widowed and Karen supported me throughout the project with advice and ideas, she went over and above her remit and I am so grateful. I love my finished home – it is so tasteful, modern and fresh.  Karen’s attention to detail is amazing and the quality of the soft furnishings is fabulous.  I would definitely recommend the company, the service has been faultless.
