01.Interior design trends UK - Rich Azure

Combining tranquillity and vibrancy, Rich Azure is one winter’s punchiest interior design trends for 2016. Placed between softer denim blues and moody indigo yet without the vibrancy of cobalt, Rich Azure is perfect for introducing a statement shade in you interior without the tone feeling too overwhelming.

Seen across a number of AW16 catwalks including Michael Kors and Zac Posen, Rich Azure works in both laid-back comfortable interiors and sophisticated design schemes. When combined with soft velvet upholstery, Rich Azure creates a feeling of luxurious opulence and works beautifully with metallic finishes and detailing. Brass studding, nickel detailing and gold lighting are the perfect partner to this tone, particularly when creating a glamorous living room scheme.

For a more laid-back look, try combining the colour with warmer whites and organic materials for an AW16 scheme that is relaxed with beach style inspirations. Look to rich cotton upholstery, weathered timber and smooth ceramics to complete the look.

02.Interior design trends UK - Rich Umber

For many of us, AW16 is a time for cosying up and hiding from the elements and Rich Umber] speaks perfectly to this, making it a gorgeous AW16 interior design trend. With its roots in the classic autumnal colour palette, Rich Umber is a blend of warm chestnut and burnt orange and this combination creates a tone that works both as a core interior colour and a bold accent hue.

Rich leather upholstery is a wonderful way to introduce this interior trend and brings a Chic heritage aspect to the look. Add chunky knits, thickly piled rugs and super soft cashmere cushions for a chalet inspired interior scheme.

Rich Umber is a wonderfully versatile tone and works with both simple neutrals and dramatic dark palettes. We’re pairing the shade with deep smoky greys for a wintery statement style that is just irresistible!

03.Interior design trends UK - Rich Taupe

When it comes to introducing a current interior design trend to your home while ensuring that it won’t date in a few seasons’ time, look no further than Rich Taupe – this year’s ultimate neutral shade. Fusing the palest caramel with soft stone, Rich Taupe is both warm and elegant and creates the perfect primary colour within an interior scheme, allowing you to introduce vibrant colour pops through home accessories and artwork. Chic shades of blue and forest green work harmoniously with Rich Taupe, playing on the tone’s organic feel.

Ralph Lauren and Valentino showed Rich Taupe on the AW16 catwalks with outfits that layered the tone in multiple textures. This sophisticated style can be brought to your interior scheme by layering a range of rich textures across upholstery, rugs, cushions, wall coverings and furnishings for a wonderfully tactile feel.
