Woodland Retreat

30th September 2019

It’s been all about interiors in the design office this month with the recent edition of our Premier Living magazine going to print. Whether you’re  looking for velvet luxe, bold colours and contrasting textures or Scandi style, there is something for everyone.

As we approach autumn you may be looking to update your interiors, so why not try the latest trend, Woodland Retreat. Adding a slightly more luxurious twist to traditional country style, woodland retreat is the warm, rustic autumn/winter trend that’s set to fill homes this season.

Layering up bold colours and warm textures, woodland retreat is the perfect autumnal trend guaranteed to give your home the perfect seasonal makeover, and we’ve rounded up everything you need, from check prints to rustic, woodland textures.


Jewel tones

When the weather gets colder, interior colours get warmer and richer, and jewel tones are an important element of this new trend. Forest greens, deep blues and ruby reds add instant style and comfort to any room, particularly bedrooms.

You can incorporate these warm hues into your home by introducing furniture and wall coverings with deeper, warmer shades to create a rich cosy autumn/winter look. These tones are dramatic but add a statement element of warming colour, and make perfect shades for rugs, throws and accessories too.

Check prints and tartans

Tartans and traditional check upholstery are another key element of woodland retreat. These bold, traditional prints can be used for blankets, throws or cushions to add a classic countryside twist and make great accessories for warming up your home in the winter.


Warm up with wood

When choosing your furniture or flooring, wood is a great material to use as a natural, warming element for your home. Layering the rich, jewel tones with wood creates a classic, rustic countryside look that never goes out of style. Lighter, paler Scandi-style woods remain popular this season, along with new, darker Japanese styles.

Light or dark leathers

Leather is another key material for woodland retreat. Dark shades of rich, brown leather continue the warm and rustic look and light leathers contrast beautifully with the darker, jewel tones and bold check prints.
