From time to time we all need a little inspiration. Even the most creative types can often find themselves paused at the cusp of it, only for it to evade them. This blog post aims to feed any blank minds with some autumn home interior inspiration. Here at Housing Units, we have created six themes consisting of varying styles aimed purely to inspire you in your own home decorating choices. With you in mind, all products featured within the themes are in the autumn sale, which ends November 5th – now extended to November 12th!
The Magnificent Metallics theme represents the definitive in contemporary living. Featuring silver tones and chrome accents, the modernity of it exudes a futuristic vibe; and oh boy, the future is shiny! With shimmering fabrics, luxurious textures and soft velvets go forward in time to a place where home décor is both a glamourous and spectacular feat. Our favourites from the collection include the Florian Large Chrome Pendant Light and the Magic Rings Chrome Coffee Table.
Enjoy traditional textures and environmentally friendly materials with the Rustic Revival theme, featuring reclaimed wood, slate, rope and pottery. Natural materials are super on-trend this autumn; raw, simple and clean, they are the new minimalistic. The products featured within Rustic Revival provide classic designs but with a contemporary spin, for example the Ruby Dining Chair has wooden legs and a neutral coloured fabric seat yet features chrome stud and ring detailing. Take inspiration from this theme and create your own modern farmhouse.
With the Ultimate Luxury theme, high-end living is successfully achieved. Expect plush luxurious fabrics you could sink right into, alongside statement dark wood furniture with a high gloss finish so glossy it looks like rich melted chocolate. A strong coffee never goes amiss with a bit of chocolate, take a peek at our Alexis Coffee Table. Reminiscent of a boutique hotel, the textured fabrics and animal prints of Ultimate Luxury add character and style.
Dark, moody colour schemes are very on-trend this season, and Cool Opulence pulls it off with a grey palette. The excessive inclusion of wall art and sculptures not only adds taste, but prevents a ‘black hole effect’ from using dark colours in an empty room. Our favourites are the New York Mirror Frame Wall Art, or add a pop of colour with the Skull Mirror Frame Wall Art. Accentuated with velvets, chrome and white marble, this sleek and modern look epitomises a high-class city lifestyle.
From the 1920s to the 1940s, there were large numbers of westerners living in Shanghai, particularly the British, American and French. The city embraced the mix of east and west in every aspect, from its fashion to its architecture. With Shanghai Dreams it’s all in the detailing; just take the Palais Rug as an example. Inspired by this thriving period, Shanghai Dreams recreates a contemporary, oriental art deco style that would be perfect for any modern day home.
Inspired by England’s rich history of fine upholstered furniture, this classic look has been remixed for the 21st century with bolder colours and prints. We love great craftsmanship at Housing Units, and the top-notch pieces featuring in Grand Classics don’t disappoint. Oozing refinement and sophistication, these products are nothing short of British favourites. We recommend you make a statement with the Heidi Sofa Collection.
