The big statement in interiors for the last few years has undoubtedly been vintage/industrial, and many of us have adopted elements of it throughout our east London homes and beyond.
But in 2022/23 the vibe is softening and becoming altogether more laidback. Perfect timing as we move inside for Autumn. The shift removes a lot of heaviness from our rooms, also showing in the current colour and fabric trends, which are more neutral. Check out the interiors of the homes on the links too, which are nailing elements of the look, and currently for sale with Estates East.
