At Fabrics Galore, we love an interiors trend that plays to the creative sewers among us and to help you access the latest Autumn/Winter 2023 interiors trends we have revisited our Top Interiors Trends for 2023 blog from earlier in the year to see what has stayed the same and what has changed.
To help us identify where interiors are going this Autumn, we have refrenced House Beautiful, Woman & Home, The British Style Society no less, and our old faithful, John Lewis. We think you’re going to love where interiors are heading this Autumn…..
Autumn 2023 Interiors: Colours
The vivid pantone colour of the year, Viva Magenta, a deep red colour with pink hues, is giving way to a more earthy purplish red described as aubergine, wine and plums (“aubergine girl autumn” as opposed to “tomato girl summer”) in warm red and pink tones. Think deep purple lampshades contrasted with muted pink curtains.

John Lewis has even named damson as its colour of the season.
Luckily, we have many options in different fabrics to adopt this trend in your own homes:
The 70s revival will also see a return to earthy tones like brown, russet, terracotta reds and oranges, to create a warm and cosy feeling to any room as we prepare for the cooler months.
Autumn 2023 Interiors: Textures
Woman and Home talks about #Cocooncore and the ongoing desire for cosy homes, created by tactile furnishings, and soft lighting. Bedrooms may be layered with throws and thick blankets. Even more excitingly, they describe the ongoing irresistibility of bouclé to create these cosy spaces, and bouclé armchairs in the corner of the living room will still be a defining feature.
Luckily, we now stock our furnishing bouclé in a variety of warming neutrals which you could mix with a gorgeous mulberry purple bouclé for cushions:
John Lewis references upholstery and soft furnishings in colours of the environment for Autumn such as cream bouclé paired with spruce green velvet.
The British Style Society talks about texture overload e.g., linen with sheepskins and luxurious velvet curtains. And while we talk about textures let's not forget our furnishing corduroys, which is another way to bring texture into your home if you are bored of velvets and bouclé.
And if we are talking about texture, how about a great fur throw to keep you cosy and warm during the winter months, these are simple to make and instantly add warmth to any room.
Autumn 2023 Interiors: Prints
So many options here to create the “Newstalgia Retro” look described by Woman & Home which is a classic mix of old and new celebrating designs of bygone eras with a contemporary twist. Florals and checks reign supreme according to John Lewis and they even recommend bold patterns from one of FG’s favourites, William Morris. Luckily we have both florals and checks in the season's colours....
Florals are always part of the interiors trend, especially over the past few years where bringing the outside in has become increasingly important. For this Autumn, florals will also be more modern and youthful with none of the heaviness of traditional florals. Look no further than MissPrint and Orla Kiely. Both have simple designs that are pretty and light, creating a slightly more modern look.
Autumn Interiors 2023: Themes
Sustainability is a key trend and hurrah for the ongoing passion for DIY home projects using vintage and secondhand furniture. Our FG community loves an upcycling project and there are many examples on our Instagram page to inspire you. And if you have been working on something using our fabric, we would love to see it, so don’t forget to tag us.
Chair upcycling on Fabrics Galore Instagram
With the summer behind us we are replacing the Mediterranean Chic of the summer for new Farmhouse Chic for Autumn, and we are celebrating at FG because this inevitably means a return to Glorious Gingham. Gingham works for so many different projects like table cloths as well as curtains and blinds, but imagine how great they also look on ruffle cushions.
