Minerals Trend - Autumn Winter 2015 / 2016

Winter 2016 Trending Fabrics – Mineral Hues

Trending in Interior Design and Furnishing Fabrics this season - Minerals, Rocks and Ore

Inspiration from Rocks and Ore is a directional Interior Decor Design and Colour story we are seeing this Autumn Winter. For this On Trend look, pattern, colour, surfaces and effects are inspired by the textures and colours seen in Natural stones and minerals.

Marbling, Moire, small scale geometrics, colour bleed effects and irregular textures are beautifully interpreted in a sophisticated palette of mineral inspired blues, greens, mauves and silver greys, scattered with metallic elements. Think Cobalt, Malachite and Verdigris for colour inspiration and textured fabrics such as velvet and silk in rich moody shades to provide a luxurious feel.

Decorating your home with Trending Fabrics in Mineral hues will create a scheme that is calm, elegant and sophisticated. Soft furnishings in a mix of patterns will add interest and vitality to a scheme and selecting furnishings in the same tonal palette will ensure the look remains harmonious.

At UK Curtains and Interiors we have a huge choice of furnishing fabrics – ideal for curtains, blinds, cushions and upholstery. Here are our favourite picks for the mineral trend:

Decadent Glamour Trend

Interior Fabric Trends – Autumn/Winter 2015

Over the last few weeks we have been busy browsing through the latest ranges of fabrics and wallpaper launched at the Focus exhibition at Chelsea Harbour Design Centre. In this week’s blog we are sharing details on some of the interior trends we are seeing for this coming season.

The first look we have named Decadent Glamour – a sophisticated mix of decorative fabrics with reference to early 20th century design. Pattern inspiration of the Art Deco period feature heavily – striking geometrics alongside animal skin inspired patterns, and elegant fern leaf and peacock feather designs. We saw a lot of textures and marbling in fabrics at the Focus show and this group of designs form a distinct trend in their own right.

Decadent Glamour colours are deep and rich – indigo and navy, dark mauve or deep moss green highlighted with other rich hues and metallics.

Gold and Silver play an important role as accents in a fabric or interior scheme and these metallics are often used together, adding a sense of luxury. Black and charcoal are also key accent colours.

Botanical Paradise Trend

Botanical Paradise Trend

Botanical Paradise is a print dominated trend featuring detailed botanical drawing and quirky toiles. We are noticing there is more exotic botanical imagery – ferns and foliage accompanied by intricate butterfly and dragonfly motifs, tropical birds, parrots and flamingos. This season we’re also seeing more unusual animal imagery including elephants and monkeys, especially at the top end of the market.

The Botanical Paradise trend can be split into two looks – Exotic which features bright tones of Aqua, Coral, Green, Lime, Purple and Jade, and Natural Botanic with less exotic imagery and softer use of colour including forest green tones, softer blue greens, indigo and purples. Natural grounds dominate but dark grounds also provide a dramatic backdrop for some of the more exotic designs.

The Ranch Trend

The Ranch Trend

The Ranch is a weave dominated trend inspired heavily by American Southwestern Textile Design. Bold geometric designs are rendered in either natural fibres – jute, cotton, wool – or fabrics imitating this look. The look is pattern heavy featuring motif stripes, primitive geometrics, ikat, kilim style patterns and elaborate chevrons and diamond designs. Folk style printed florals, prints imitating weave effects and interesting colour woven textures also form part of this trend.

Colour is focussed on traditional hues with pared down tones of Orange, Reds, Teal, Soft Blues and Grey Blue combined with naturals and greys.

The style of designs and choice of fabrics in this Navajo inspired trend lends graphic appeal and textural depth to an interior scheme and can be adapted to suit either a traditional or contemporary home.

There is definitely some crossover between the trends we are seeing this season with a number of fabrics fitting into more than one defined story. This highlights a more general trend we are seeing to mix and match styles and patterns.

We will be covering more interior trends over the next couple of weeks so look out for further blogs which we hope will inspire you this Autumn / Winter.

Woodland Tree Printed Velvet Cushion Cover

Product of the Month – Woodland Tree Cushion Cover by McAlister

Click on the blue text to take you to the relevant pages on our website

So now autumn is well and truly here, are you looking for a quick way to update your home for the new season? New to our McAlister range of Cushion Covers at UK Curtains and Interiors this month is the Woodland Tree Design – an elegant watercolour painted tree motif digitally printed onto a sumptuous soft touch velvet ground. This designer cushion is finished with black contrast piping and priced at just £9.99 is an affordable update.

This is one of my favourite new products for Autumn Winter. It looks fabulous displayed with our Classic Velvet Cushion Covers in Charcoal and Soft Grey and would make a perfect accent cushion for a monochrome or silver interior scheme:

Choose a simple texture or plain fabric for your upholstery. The trend at the moment is to use a couple of complementary fabrics for several upholstered items in a scheme rather than one fabric suits all. Our Ashridge textured plain fabric in Grey is a perfect sofa upholstery fabric (and also suitable for drapery and blinds) but this could be paired with a different upholstery fabric with a small scale pattern or texture. Velvet always looks great for upholstery and our Rossini plain velvet fabric, available in several colours including Ash (Grey) and Jet (Black) has a luxurious feel. A small item upholstered in this fabric will make an opulent statement.

Choose something a little more dramatic for real impact and don’t be afraid to mix unrelated designs such as a geometric and floral. Our Milan Fabric in Ebony is a striking velvet geometric which would make stunning made to measure curtains, cushions or upholstered items and make a great backdrop for the Woodland Tree cushion cover.

Woodland Tree Moodboard

Our Woodland Tree Cushion Cover will work perfectly in a silver or monochrome scheme

There are many more fabrics in a monochrome palette available from UK Curtains and Interiors. Another personal favourite, Canterbury is an irregular rib fabric available in 12 colours including Steel, Noir (black) and Dove grey. Tatton is a versatile plain chenille fabric which comes in a whole range of colours including Black and Silver. Looking for a Curtain fabric featuring tree motifs? Check out the Woodland Woven Fabric available in 3 colours including Charcoal. View our Fabrics section to see more and don’t forget all of our fabrics are available as made to measure curtains and roman blinds.

Woodland Woven Fabric in Charcoal

Worried that a monochrome scheme may look a bit too….well monochrome ! Choose a bright accent hue to inject some colour with additional scatter cushions and accessories. Stick to a single hue for your accent colour and you really can’t go wrong.

So why not create a new look for your home this season – it couldn’t be easier with UK Curtains and Interiors.

McAlister It's a Dogs Life Range of Novelty Cushions

New from McAlister – Novelty Cushions Range

Click on the text in Orange to take you to the relevant website pages.

We have certainly seen a trend lately for novelty cushions. Although traditionally used for comfort or as a co-ordinating accessory, the cushion is now at the forefront of design.

Cushions are a reflection of you and your home. Novelty cushions are a popular choice and can create quite a statement. Although still used as a practical form of comfort, the fact they also add a hint of fun and personality makes the novelty cushion a must. They can also be the perfect gift for those hard to buy for friends. Brand new to McAlister this month is the “It’s a Dog’s Life Collection” of Cushion Covers.

Quirky and fun, this collection of 5 novelty cushion covers feature beautifully hand painted canine companions digitally printed onto a cosy wool look fabric and finished with smart black piping which complements these pooches perfectly.
