                            TREND BIBLE AW 22.23                               HOME & INTERIOR


Our Autumn Winter 2022/23 Home & Interior Trend Book is now available to purchase in digital format directly from our online shop. Our four Home & Interior trends this season are characterised by a forward-looking approach with a focus firmly on the future.

Surreal Spaces

A post-pandemic reflection fuels a sense of perspective; we can do difficult things, find joy in trying times and create change in the world. Customers are in an explorative mood, seeking out and indulging new facets of their own personality. No longer constrained to binary ideas about who they are and what their homes should look like, a more experimentative phase takes hold.

Healing in the Home

The legacy of the pandemic will be felt for some time to come, and through 2022 we’ll see a focus on healing; whether that’s through light, airy and ergonomic minimalism, or cosy, comforting colour.

Joyful Living

Looking back at new habits nurtured during lockdown; quality time spent with friends, family and neighbours, the art of slowing down, and gratitude for the small things – all become hang-overs to be treasured and protected. As the need to be seen and shared on social media begins to wane, subtler trends come to the fore.


        TREND BIBLE 

     KIDS HOME          AW 22.23

Our Autumn Winter 2022/23 Baby & Kids Trend Book is now available to purchase in digital format directly from our online shop. Our four Baby & Kids trends this season are dominated by escapist influences and an optimistic outlook.

A Global Awakening

Emerging from the initial shockwaves of the COVID-19 pandemic, family life begins to look very different as consumers grapple with the far reaching social and economic impacts in 2022/23 and beyond. We see the feelings of fear, anxiety and uncertainty that rocked the planet in 2020, shift into more positive themes of activism, optimism, joy, escapism and resilience in Gen Alpha, who are being raised in the wake of the global pandemic and the Black Lives Matter uprising.

Survive and Thrive

This season, children are not afraid to rip up the history books and write their own story and make their own world, whether that’s from a values perspective, or through creating their own digital worlds. Following the shock and surprise of the pandemic, there is a focus on survival and building resilience in children, developing core skills to help them cope, no matter what life throws at them.

Having seen a focus on the planet and our animal inhabitants over the past few years, this season we’re fascinated anew with the human race; at how we conflict, survive, how we’re all different, how we can bond and provide comfort for one another.


AW 20.21

Trend tracking is an important tool we use to not only evidence our forecasts but also to see how these trends are translated and filtered through to mass market level. This report rounds up the Trend Bible trends as spotted across retail globally for Autumn Winter 2020/21.



As part of our trend forecasting process at Trend Bible, we routinely investigate both the things we can see coming; Calculables, and the things that we can’t; Chaotics, triangulating our research to ensure our forecasts maintain their relevance over a long period of time.

In tracking our 2020 trends, we have revisited and applied a pandemic lens to our four stories - Studio Kawaii, Jardin de Luxe, Island Life and New Rhythms - and evidence the trends in major UK and US stores.



JULY 2020

For SS22 the social, cultural and emotional drivers of trends in the home will be more important than ever. We began this forecast before the arrival of COVID-19 and the subsequent pandemic, but we’ve since revisited every aspect of this forecast, making sure the trend drivers, stories and colours all reflect the kind of world we will be living in by 2022. Whilst nobody could have predicted the pandemic or the dramatic impact it has had on our lives, what’s important now is that we understand its longer term impacts on the kind of messages, themes and products shoppers will be drawn towards. We’ve taken care to interrogate the social, economic and emotional impact of the pandemic, synthesizing this with critical issues of the day - such as sustainability, emotional wellbeing and inclusivity. The home itself now plays a much more important role in daily life. As such, the products with which we furnish our surroundings hold great power. As householders craft new post-pandemic behaviours, the home will need to function in a broader sense, accommodating home working and socialising but also providing a much needed place of safety. With that in mind, relationships and emotional wellbeing form the central theme of all of our trends this season, from our connection to the natural world, to the power of positivity, community and the importance of quiet design. If you’re not there already, welcome to the future.

Released September 2020







Welcome to 2020, and what a year it will be, I feel many of us were more than happy to say goodbye to 2019, a challenging year for retailers.

I’m very happy to announce the latest AW21-22 reports are available……….. here is a short intro to each

Luminary Colour – Out of the Darkness

“Over the coming seasons, we must take time to pause, as only in stillness will we find the space to create our new path into the future. Take this time to reflect, gather your intentions, and turn inwards to find the true philosophy of your brand.  Use this slow time wisely, to gather in new insights and learnings and to extend your reach to like-minded communities and manufacturers.

Do not be afraid to take a step back from the fast pace of consumer demands, for this too is changing.  Listen to your brand community, connect to your own tribe through events and collaborations.  Colour is no longer driven by celebrity and catwalk.  Social platforms and technology are crating brace new forms of connectivity.

The word “trend” seems so outdated and empty of meaning – today our future directions must begin with social justice, the environment and politics in mind.  Ideas are not fast-paced or “seasonal”, new influences evolve into a way of life.  Colour and material choices we make today are grounded in sustainability and a vision of a new way of making, designing, living and consuming.

At Luminary we are creating stories which reflect the current mood and emotions of our consumers.   Colour decisions have never been so influenced by ethics or the emergency of our natural ecosphere.

Choose your colours wisely,  Listen to the earth speak"    Anna Starmer, Creative Director, Luminary Colour


THE FUTURE OF LIFE AT HOME IN YOUR HANDS. If it can be done in, or to, the home – we’re already tracking weak signs of upcoming shifts in taste and habit around the world. Whether it’s the future of eating, decorating, playing, celebrating, cleaning or bringing up children, we apply our experience and expertise to develop those signals into clear, strong and simple trend forecasts that are easy to implement. We provide brands, companies and designers with insight, strategy and preparation for what the future of life at home may hold. Some need inspiration to fire their next idea. Others want direction to develop a clear brief or support throughout the creative process. There are those who need to sense check a concept, unite their team behind an idea or on-board a key decision maker. Whatever your need, we’ll make sure you confidently stay ahead of the game to create commercially successful products which connect with future audiences and stay true to your brand. Welcome to Trend Bible AW21.22

Spring 20 NYFW was by far one of the best in recent years. The schedule was more concise and streamlined, which made for a stronger overall designer lineup. What's more is that collections were beaming with joy and optimism for the season; a welcome antidote to our current climate. While we can channel the positivity through trends like bright colors, several shows brought us immersive experiences that felt like real-life mood boards, forging a deeper connection and appreciation for the clothes. Another popular conversation was that of Americana, from ultra-commercial sportswear classics to immigration and multicultural backgrounds. Emotions ran high intentionally, which also lead into clothes that make us FEEL something, like a new sensual aesthetic that borrows from lounge and intimate apparel. Let's hope the feel-good vibes progress throughout fashion month and be sure to follow along as we uncover trends that will shape our industry.....Melissa Moylan VP Creative Director, Fashion Snoops

Self-expression and creativity have become status symbols for householders and we see an appetite for bold colour combinations on the rise. Radiating an unpretentious feeling, Mayfly (PANTONE 18-022 TCX)  is a wholesome green with grounding qualities, which connects us to nature. Driven by a shift towards warmer nuances, we see mossy olive tinged greens paired with milky and burnt orange shades and deep red for Autumn Winter 2020. As Millennial consumers like to blend influences from all over the world, this palette evokes the sights and scents of exotic travel. Plush velvets, terracotta and walnut wood complement these shades for the winter season.  Trend Bible  to read more click here
