AW Trends 2014
With autumn on our doorsteps, we thought we’d take a trip to London to see what AW14 trends had emerged into fashion and interiors. We were particularly taken with Regent Street, Tottenham Court Road and Oxford Street where we were lucky enough to visit Anthropologie, Zara Home, Heals and Selfridges, to name but a few.
For our AW14 photo-shoots we featured rustic shaker-style furniture, sanded floorboards, white-washed walls and strong pops of colour against a back-drop of crisp, white linens. Throughout the stores we visited we saw a similar trend. Anthropologie was heavily styled in deep russets and golden hues. Their white bed linen featured bright autumnal colours of blue, yellow and orange, with eclectic autumnal scenes. Rope-work lamps and orange painted industrial-looking walls made the store look very edgy. Our Versaille collection perfectly captures the AW14 trend. The soft, intricate motifs carved on the bed, with caned headboard is beautiful when teamed with bright, white linens. We love it with a bright cushion and contemporary chevron throw.
AW14 fabrics and materials
This autumn we’re layering up to create cosy rooms to hibernate in as it gets cold and chilly outside. We love muted greys and soft palettes this season, as they work beautifully with pops of colours. Our Moss Stitch Silver throw is gorgeously heavy and luxurious. Team it with an aubergine cushion and you’ve created a beautiful autumnal look. Faux fur is making a come-back like never before, and looks divine with silvers and subtle additions of copper. Our faux fur throws and cushions are unbelievably soft and warm – a timeless investment. We love these throws in a room with glassware, to add light and soften the look. On visiting Zara Home we saw colourful glassware, from greens to ambers – stunning with white bed linens. This store also had thick faux fur layers, tartan prints, country cottage patterns and animal motif prints.
What we’re seeing as an overall AW14 trend is a bright, bohemian style. Rustic oranges and reds complemented with bright blues, yellows and greens. The look is finished with glassware and crisp white linens, faux fur throws and heavy layers.
