As autumn rolls on and we move into colder weather in Sydney, it’s time to consider what’s hot in home interior winter trends. Successful home staging creates the sense of a modern life well lived, so let’s discover the new looks that will make your home buyers want to snuggle right in and pay a higher final price.

 

Naturally intense colours

Pantone has unveiled its colours for London Fashion Week Autumn/Winter 2019/2020, and you’d better believe that these colours will be popping up in interior styling throughout the colder months. Think autumn shades of antique golden yellows, merlot, forest green and olive green to bring the outside in. How will stylists be incorporating these tones into home styling in Sydney? Through earthy elements like abstract artworks, richly textured cushions and throws, plus painted feature walls and alcoves.

 

Soft sheepskin

Sheepskin is the perfect material for hygge winters; it’s tactile, natural and has incredible insulation properties. While sheepskin has been in vogue for a couple of years, it’s truly coming into its own this winter with furniture pieces by brands like Timothy Oulton for Coco Republic. Stylists might incorporate a soft sheepskin draped over a chair or on the floor to soften a room’s aesthetic. You might choose local Australian merino sheepskin for its warmth and softness, Icelandic sheepskin for its indulgent shagginess or faux sheepskin alternatives.

 

Approachable and organic shapes

With the world feeling harsher and harder than ever, we’re seeing a lot of focus on curved and organic shapes to help soften our home interiors. This doesn’t need to be introduced with a heavy hand. Rather, a beautiful timber coffee table with round curves or a Featherston contour armchair in royal blue can provide all the gentleness a space might need.

 

Gold accents

Focus has been steadily moving from copper highlights in home interiors towards warm golden features, in a nostalgic nod to retro Australiana of the 60s and 70s. Tasteful gold accents will beautifully complement vintage-style woven cane chairs and side tables that are currently right on trend for property styling in Sydney. It’s simple to add small golden aspects to many modern interiors with small bowls, cupboard knobs, light fittings or candlesticks. The more patina and warmth, the better.
