It's very nearly time to bid farewell to summer and welcome autumn. With the imminent seasonal change we have compiled our top six Autumn 2014 trends for kitchens and bedrooms:
1. Smoky Chic
This trend brings industrial tones into the bedroom through a layering of soft, plush fabrics and cosy knits in smokey grey refined concrete and slate inspired tones.
Betta Living’s Cassia Bedroom with Bi-Fold doors and Brilliance Bedroom reveal how well this trend works against stark white wardrobes.
Betta Living’s Cassia Bedroom is priced at £1,456 and Betta Living’s Brilliance Bedroom is priced at £1,769 (based on a guide layout*).
2. Warming Citrines
Zesty shades of oranges and limes are brought together with warming wood tones in this fabulous Autumn trend.
The beech finish of Betta Living’s Cassia Bedroom, looks stunning against bright citrine hues creating a vibrant and warming look. Priced at £1,456 (based on a guide layout*).
3. Textural Twist
Mixing textures with fabrics and furnishings is a key bedroom trend for Autumn 2014.
Warm walnut wood grains against stark white-gloss panelling in Betta Living’s Lucetta Bedroom (priced at £1,769*) with a plush fur rug and rich layering of bedding shows how fabulous this trend can look.
4. Minimalist Monochrome
Monochrome remains a huge trend for kitchens in Autumn 2014. Features include stark white units dramatically styled with black bedroom and kitchen accessories, geometric patterns, clean lines and handle-less door fronts.
This trend creates a sleek and contemporary look kitchen as seen with Betta Living’s Horizon Kitchen (from £5,187 based on a guide layout*).
5. Earthen Craftsmanship
Autumn’s Earthen Craftsmanship trend incorporates rich wood hues and when mixed with spice-inspired colours and accessories ooozes warmth and creates a cosy kitchen feel.
Betta Living's Arts and Craft Kitchen starts at £5,651 (based on a guide layout*).
6. Unexpected Colour Bursts
Splashes of vibrant colours on a neutral pallet is a huge trend for kitchens this Autumn. This can be achieved through the addition of bright kitchen accessories and utensils but also through bright glossy splashbacks – working particularly well in monochrome-look kitchens as seen with Betta Living’s Dallas kitchen (shown with blue splashback below).
Betta Living’s Dallas Kitchen is priced at £3,690 and Betta Living's Pasadena Kitchen is priced £3,796 (both based on a guide layout*).
