Rustic Farmhouse 

Farmhouse interior is a traditional style that has long been adorned and beloved in British homes, embracing quaint and romantic charm of the English countryside. 

This classic style has been given a new lease of life with the upcoming rustic farmhouse trend. This style is a fresh take that incorporates a more relaxed atmosphere with neutral, earthy autumnal colours and raw industrial inspired accessories that adds a modern contrast to the cosy and rough-hewn traditional staples we know and love. 

Start with furniture in this seasons colours; stone white, tumbleweed brown, dark olive green and sage green. Take our Ava Leather Armchair in a classic mid century silhouette in a copper brass colour. Contrast with our Nomad Dining Table with cut outs that adds visual interest and raw black metal legs that gives a industrial edge to balance the traditional flair. Finally pair with rustic accessories like our Dalton Tripod Lamp

Industrial meets Glam

One of the most recent trends on the home interior scene is a hybrid of two opposing styles: Glamour and industrial. 

The two seemingly opposite aesthetics are coming together to create one seriously chic look, for a truly unique and customised space. The industrial style embraces the urban and relaxed construction atmosphere with exposed brick work, metal piping and brass details. 

Embrace this by using rough and raw materials like large grid metal mirrors that imitate mill style windows, like our Louise Arched Mirror or unfinished rustic wood, Brown Wooden Dining Table and fuse with glamourous accent pieces like metallic Waved Chandelier with chrome chains or our Champagne Satin Piera Lamp.

Gold is the new Chrome

As we are heading towards cooler weather and inviting warm and earthier tones into our homes, silver and chrome tones are slowly fading out as we are embracing gold accessories. 

Shabby spoke to e-commerce manager, Mark McKeen, who connects this customer shift to 'gold being synonymous with opulence, and customers wanting to create more luxurious atmosphere'. 

Depending on the sheen of the gold pair metallic golds with jewel like tones of navy, mauve purple and teal and combine organic gold tones with dark and sultry black

Art Deco influences

Art Deco has long been on Shabby's radar with our exclusive collection of bold  and bright furniture and geometric prints, but this season particularly centres around coupling materials like gold and wood above with autumnal hues in a eclectic maximalist style. 

This style is more fluid and allows for playing around by mixing and matching decadent accessories like marble, velvet and glass. Place your staple furniture and start decorating with accent pieces like our Gold Round Mirror and contrast with lavish deluxe semi-precious stone Agate Side Table with soothing properties. Finalise the look with a punchy colour like our Bellini Velvet Cushions

Layering Textures and Colours

Lastly, one of the biggest trends that is predicted to continue dominating interior decoration for the foreseeable future is layering textures and colours for a wider depth and visual interest. 

One of the simplest ways of implementing new styles and textures is with cushions, that can easily be changed through different seasons and trend cycles. In particular, interior expert Nivedita Yoshi noted that 'multi-tonal cushions is on the rise' and 'an effective way to add accent colours and patterns with endless options'.

Start with cushions like our Avianna style in a jacquard dual tone or our multi coloured Beckett that adds a ombré effect and instantly adds a contrast to your sofa corners.
