Autumn/Winter - Style Trends - Statement Stripes

Statement Stripes & Geometrics, Pattern Clashes & Florals

Contrasts, extremes and freedom (particularly that of self expression), are evident across fabrics and wall coverings too and pattern is making a big come back.

A clash of patterns as well as a clash of colours is in vogue and the trend is not to be too 'matchy- matchy' with everything. Geometric patterns are featuring, with their influence sourced either from the angular forms from nature, or the restrictions and infrastructure that we live within and a reflection of the circuitry that powers the modern digital/technological age that documents and monitors our modern day lives.

Statement stripes are always a good look and this season is no exception. The dynamic impact of 'statement' stripes is being used to add energy and vibrancy to interior schemes. Bold, colour clashed stripes, are being used to make social spaces lively, stimulating and fun and the classic black & white combo is being punctuated by pops of bold red, orange or lime greens. Use your stripes to make things stand out. Employ them in an elegant manner so that they showcase the room, but keep decor complements minimalist to maintain elegance and harmony.

Surprisingly enough florals are in too (I can't recall a season where they weren't). Small vintage prints and massive florals all play a part, but with a strong new trend - a white background. In fact bold colours are being used to showcase stripes, geometric patterns and florals alike, but it has to be on a white background for the season's hottest look.

Strong angular patterns are filtering through, inspired by African, Mexican and South American influences, folklore, animals, culture, crafts and nature. African influences in particular, bringing warm colors and animal skin imitations back into this eclectic interiors mix. Have fun with this new pattern palette - be a bit 'extreme' even, by throwing together stripes, florals, geometrics, as well as colour clashes and an array of textures, to create a unique and stylish ensemble that not only graces your interior spaces, but reflects our complex personalities too.
