Planning some interiors updates this autumn? We scoured one of our favourite Cambs interiors companies, Angela Reed, for all the items you’ll need to nail A/W20’s aesthetic. The best interiors trends for Autumn 2020 are all about working from home, taking the indoors out and being bold with colour. Let the shopping spree commence.
WORKING FROM HOME
It looks like WFH is here to stay for the long term, so if you’ve been cramped up in a corner with your laptop or working at the kitchen table, you might want to rethink your working space for the coming months. Of course, a She Shed in the garden would be the dream (see our round up of some heavenly ones here), but if you don’t have the space or budget, concentrate on turning a light, bright corner of one of your rooms into a home office, with these gorgeous pieces from Angela Reed.
If you’re struggling for space, this gorgeous compact desk with useful drawers and compartments for documents will fit perfectly into any unused corner.
Berwick compact desk, £399.
Every homeworker needs a pot of zebra pencils, right? Let this cool customer jazz up your workspace and provide you with some eye candy when those spreadsheets get too boring to bear.
Zebra pencil pot, £19.95
Don’t the Covid-19 pandemic land you with a hefty chiropractors bill thanks to terrible posture on an unsuitable seat. Be CEO of your own space with this snazzy office seat that is much friendlier to your interior aesthetic than one of those boring office chairs from Staples!

AROUND THE WORLD
So, it looks like overseas travel isn’t going to be a massive part of our lives for a while, which makes this autumn interiors trend even more attractive – bringing travel influences and exotic touches from other countries into your own home. Embrace cool colours and textures to give your home the feel that you’ve just got back from a fabulous trip – if only!
Out of Africa
A statement piece of artwork featuring an exotic animal like these fabulous giraffes is the easiest way to give your home that world traveller vibe. This print by Dominique Salm is called ‘Drinking Problem’ – I’m sure after lockdown we can all identify!

As we head into Winter 2020 it’s less about hygge and more about rich hues and fabrics inspired by jewels. We’re talking heavy velvets in dark burgundy, ruby, emerald and dark blues paired with metallic accessories.

It’s all about bringing the indoors outside at the moment as we try and socialise in the great outdoors, so making the most of your garden has never been more important. Even in autumn and winter you can enjoy outside space as long as you’ve got it kitted out properly and have some form of heat source.
Light my fire
You won’t enjoy the garden in winter if you’re freezing, so be sure to have a heat source to sit around when friends and family are visiting for some socially-distanced socialising! This firepit looks fab and gives off plenty of heat, so is the perfect piece to start your outdoors living space.
