As the new season takes hold, it brings with it a whole new direction of design. From the insta-worthy colour of the moment to a focus on versatile living, our editor has curated six of the most desired interior design trends to inspire your home for autumn-winter 2021.

AW21 Interior Design: A Deeper Shade of Green

Green is having a moment. Its natural connotations bring balance and harmony to interiors and whilst there’s a shade for all in the spectrum, from soft sages to vivid verdant hues, it’s deep and decadent greens that are in demand. 

Whether you dress your living room walls in jewel-inspired emerald or opt for heritage forest hues in the kitchen (you won’t be alone, there are over 80,000 posts with the #greenkitchen on Instagram), style your chosen shade of green with chic polished brass accents - a pairing that radiates a sense of grandeur.

AW21 Interior Design: Ridge Renaissance

Texture is stealing the spotlight once more and this season, designers are drawn to ridge details to inspire their interiors. From panelled cabinets to freestanding furniture and more referencing the aesthetic, there’s no denying ridges are everywhere right now. 

An effortless way to get the look is by updating the smaller design details like your hardware and our Digbeth collection embraces the trend with striking hand-finished linear ridged details to the surface, yielding a distinctive look and feel.

AW21 Interior Design: The Age of Versatility

Versatile living is a trend that’s sure to continue into next season and beyond with more of us embracing hybrid working or indeed, redefining what’s important to us in our own homes. The pandemic has given us pause to look at our homes in a new way and so rooms are taking a less defined direction with versatility coming to the forefront. 

Multi-functional design is personal and so it’s all about experimenting with your space for maximum impact. Think a sleek home office set up in your guest room or a place to practice yoga in the bedroom.

AW21 Interior Design: Self-Care Sanctuary

The bathroom is becoming a self-care sanctuary and as a result, bathroom renovations are on the rise as many of us seek to retreat to this space for a spa-like experience we can enjoy every day.

Instantly refresh your bathroom with the addition of accessories in luxe finishes to create hotel-level luxury that not only looks the part but helps you to find your inner zen too by nurturing the senses. Think elegant brass hardware and mirrors to match, fresh green accents, soft linen textiles and hand-poured candles.

AW21 Interior Design: Artisan Appreciation

The change of season sees the return of thoughtful design and craft with artisanal pieces leading the way. Bringing an organic warmth and raw element to home decor, trend reports are brimming with these highly sought-after new home classics.

The look is natural, imperfect and transcends to every room. Opt for earthy handwoven rattan and bamboo pieces in bedrooms, choose statement handmade ceramics to style your living room and let the beauty of hand-finished brass hardware adorn your kitchen.

AW21 Interior Design: Sustainability Reigns

A buzzword across all industries, the world of interiors is no different as designers consciously choose sustainable alternatives. This means not only a definitive move to planet-friendly products but also selecting brands that are transparent in their sustainability efforts.   

At Armac Martin, we are not only working to eliminate plastic from all our packaging in a thoughtful way to balance the protection of our hand-finished products with a more sustainable option, but we are also sending our scrap brass to a recycling plant to be reused for future products.
