“Winter is one of the best seasons for creating warm, inviting spaces ready for everything from movie nights to meals with friends and family.”

Getting cosy for the colder season

Here at Fable & Plumb, we’re all about investing in timeless, high-quality furniture that can be updated to match the latest trends for homes and interiors. In the last few weeks, we’ve all noticed the darker evenings and need for an extra layer when we step outside, so it’s definitely fair to say that winter is well on its way.

Aside from the obvious seasonal additions, home décor trends will be seeing some significant shift in the next few months. If you’re looking for ways to freshen up your home this winter, then look no further as we’ve rounded up the key trends to look out for this season.

70s Style

With its warm tone and eclectic patterns, the Seventies has been a source of inspiration in this season’s fashion and interior trends. We’re talking gold accent features, mustard and jewel toned fabrics and the rise of unique furniture shapes.

Patterned features such as a rug or artwork are a great place to start. This trend also allows you to combine unique items that mix texture and tone for a truly retro-inspired feel that’s totally your own. Alternatively, why not try out a velvet look for your furniture in a bold new colourway? Not only does it fit the style of the time but offers a great way to add some extra comfort to your home ahead of the colder months.

Earth Tones

With so much time spent inside over the last 18 months, getting back to nature is high on everyone’s agenda. The use of green interiors (in both a literal and environmental way) was already on the rise pre-pandemic, and it looks like that trend is certainly here to stay. However, this season brings in another element, as earth colours begin to take precedence. Take one look at the hottest #homeinspo Instagram feeds and you’ll spot plenty of neutral clay and soft pink homes raking in the likes.

These colours aren’t only a dream for all minimalist homeowners, but also create a calming environment encouraging a sense of tranquillity and renewal. The flexibility of these shades is also a huge benefit as they loan themselves to a variety of homes, from new builds to character properties.

A neutral sofa is a great place to start as it will work around a variety of existing decors and will stay stylish for the years to come. Worried that lighter colours may not stand up to the challenges of family life? We prioritise choosing washable fabrics for all our loose cover sofas meaning they are family friendly and made for living.

Perfect Patterns

For the last decade of sofa shopping, stores have often only featured plain or semi-plain designs. However, in the last few months, we’ve seen big patterns creeping back into our homes. From the traditional British designs of William Morris to standout florals, going big is back.

Patterns can create a focal point in the room, whether it be the sofa or a standout chair, as well as picking out different colours from your other interior items. They also give homemakers a chance to express a little more about themselves, such as a deep rooted passion for all things nature. We’re all about letting your interiors tell your story, and patterned designs offer boundless ways to do so. Plus, with replacement covers, you can switch out your sets for different designs depending on where the mood takes you!
