Welcome to our first seasonal trend report. As we’ve done for the past few months, we’re compiling the fastest up-and-coming trends and letting you know how you can achieve the look. This time around, we’re going for a macro scale account of what’s hot, so you can be in-the-know at any given moment in the next fall.

Overall, it seems like many of the trends are taking inspiration from the summer tourism many of us have been doing. The colours, textures and motifs we’re seeing have a rustic roughness to them – which we adore. In fact, the rustic vibes are even more specific, they are Mediterranean. Everything seems to be bathed in a golden, sunny, carefree vibe, just like an Ibiza sunset. 

If you want to embody that cosy feel for the colder month, don’t hesitate to keep scrolling and let us know what you think will be trendy in the next couple of months. 

01. Terracotta colours

Red earth colours are really killing it right now. They are warm, edgy, but a giant leap from the worrisome cherry reds of the mid-2010s. This iteration of red is calm and relaxed, a perfect fit for a living room or a bedroom.

02. Curvy walls and furniture

Look anywhere on social media right now and you’ll find sexy curves in furniture and architecture everywhere. We already saw it coming some time back, but we’re not mad about it. There’s something uniquely joyous about this trend and we hope it will stick around!

03. Plaster walls and venetian wash

Again with the gritty yet subdued vibe that is trending right now, plaster walls, limewash and venetian plaster are absolutely everywhere. If the rustic, cottage chic atmosphere is not your cup of tea, you can always pair this choice with a rococo, baroque look from a decadent 18th century Italian look. Alternatively, you could go full industrial, minimalist with it. The possibilities are endless!

04. Travel-inspired details

As we mentioned right at the top of this article, tourism is making a huge impact on designers’ minds right now. Inspired by the new people, customs and art they’re finding abroad, the latest designs have been especially idiosyncratic and eclectic. If you’re planning on traveling soon, take inspiration from your destination and invest in some native or local artists for an extra fun touch in your next design.

05. Coloured concrete

An unexpected contender in this list has been poured, coloured concrete – used for walls, floors and smaller elements like wash basins. We have seen this trending everywhere, and we love the flexibility and versatility of this material. It pairs well with so many styles; from wabi sabi to eclectic to industrial, this is a total hit.
