Interior Trends: Autumn/Winter 2023

Interior Trends: Autumn/Winter 2023

As the second half of the year approaches, we look at the interior trends to embrace as the weather cools, days shorten, and the ultimate season of celebration comes knocking at our doors. This autumn/winter calming shades ease us into a new season, while punches of bold colours and quirky touches remind us to have fun. 

Calm Nature

Characterised by a focus on neutral colours and a connection to the outdoors, the calm nature interior trend promotes a calming and peaceful space. Perfect for transitioning through to the autumnal months when we often find ourselves retreating indoors to embrace feeling cosy, this trend stylishly brings the outdoors inside with us. 

Earth tones, such as organic browns and Sage Leaf - one of WGSN’s key colours for AW23 - are central to this trend, along with natural textures that give calming effects. Spode’s Tall Trees collection from Kit Kemp showcases a beautiful woodland setting that draws inspiration from the British countryside in chalky shades of green and brown. Style with green and cream linens, silver cutlery, clear glassware and subtle sprigs of foliage for a serene table setting.  

Away from the table, bring this trend to life by adding plants and greenery to living room shelves, kitchen windowsills and hallways. Plants bring energy into a room and have been shown to have a positive impact on our mental health and well-being – what more do you need to know? 

Bold & Bright

We often associate summer with bright hues, but this autumn/winter vivid colour palettes are here to revive and add a touch of exuberance. From the autumnal months of September and October through to the festive December, refresh your colour range with fuchsia, orange and purple.

We’ve styled our Creatures of Curiosity collection with rich purples, pops of orange and gold accessories to create an intriguing setting that’s warm and inviting. Layering pattern on pattern for a maximalist touch, standout colours cut through the clashes to bring it all together. A fabulous tablescape for cosy October get-togethers, vivid brights also deliver a playful, non-traditional festive narrative your guests certainly won’t be expecting. 

Eclectic Euphoria

Christmas is all about creating memorable celebrations and the eclectic euphoria trend is perfect for those looking to go all out to impress guests. Mismatched ornaments, a kaleidoscope of jewel tones, and a little bit of sparkle are key to this AW 2023 trend.

To create a bold celebration with this trend in mind, dress your tree with unique ornaments in an array of different styles that show off your personality, pair rich blues and teals with deep reds and purples, and don’t think twice about embracing your inner maximalist. 

The mix-and-match colourways of teal, pink and monochrome featured in Spode’s Zoological Gardens collection are a perfect choice for adding an eclectic twist to your seasonal décor. Layer with purple linens, gold accents and matching teal accessories. However, if you prefer to stick with just one colour on your ceramics, the classic cobalt shade of Blue Italian pairs beautifully with vibrant pink, emerald green and sparkling metallics. A versatile colour for AW23 according to trend forecasters WGSN, Galactic Cobalt is a must-have for your space.  

Happy Hour 

Christmas time is the perfect excuse to get-together with our favourite people, but no festive soirée would be complete without delicious drinks to start our celebrations. The happy hour trend is all about embracing ways to elevate the drinking experience throughout the festive season with new cocktail and mocktail recipes to try and fabulous glassware to match.  

It wouldn’t be a Spode Christmas without our joyfully nostalgic Christmas Tree collection making an appearance or simple stealing the show. The perfect glassware for a festive celebration, choose from elegant champagne flutes, goblets, tumblers, and a pitcher all adorned with the iconic Christmas tree design and finished with a sparkling gold rim – there's no better-suited collection for the occasion.
