Stella McCartney, Nensi Dojaka, Bora Aksu, Bottega Veneta, Alexander McQueen, Prada… the list of fashion greats celebrating the beauty of all things red this autumn is certainly impressive. And it’s not just the catwalks that are coming alive in tones of scarlet – the trend has also spilled over into homes to rent.
At London’s Wembley Park, award-winning management company Quintain Living is overseeing the rental of more than 3,650 apartments, many of which feature bright pops of seasonal scarlet. In the lobby of Alameda, red is all around, from the desk of the welcoming, 24/7 concierge to the walls and post-boxes.
Over in Ferrum, bright red sofas and dining chairs bring warmth and vibrancy to the industrial chic of the furnished loft-style homes.
In The Robinson, residents can take the red trend one step further, choosing chilli-red kitchens to cook up some comfort food in on chilly autumn evenings.
More muted, buttery creams and yellows have also been gracing the catwalks of late, with Tove, Givenchy, Christopher Kane, Zimmermann and Cecilie Bahnsen all delivering their take on these tones. In Quintain Living’s Italian-inspired apartments of Alto this autumnal trend is reflected in various ways – particularly with their sleek, off-white kitchens with state-of-the-art Siemens appliances and indulgent cream bedroom carpets. The minimalist homes also showcase the ‘less is more’ approach that many of the major fashion houses have taken to their latest collections.
The autumn/winter 2023 shows also emphasised a return to practical, ‘wearable’ clothes and quiet luxury. These are trends that are echoed at Quintain Living, where ease of renting and high-quality furnishings are a cornerstone of the homes available. Quintain Living’s apartments feature furniture collections curated by John Lewis & Partners, with a bespoke selection designed to suit the style of each building. Meanwhile, the move-in process is as effortless as can be imagined, with depositless renting, no hidden fees, flexible renting and utilities set up and ready to go, with a single, monthly itemised bill.
Of course, winter wouldn’t be winter without a bit of sparkle. While Valentino and Atlein added a glamorous touch of shine to the autumn/winter catwalks, it is The Robinson that sparkles at Wembley Park. The building’s super lobby is home to an enormous disco ball that sets the tone for the building’s playful, inventive interior, sending light shimmering around the room.
The growing emphasis on sustainability, across the fashion industry, rental sector and beyond also means that natural, raw materials and finishes are getting plenty of attention this autumn. In Repton Gardens at Wembley Park, this can be seen in the building’s sustainability-focused furniture collection, botanically inspired living, exposed ceilings and natural, earthy tones and textures.
“Each of our developments at Wembley Park features bespoke interior design and furnishings, adding character and interest to apartments and shared social spaces alike. This autumn, we’re delighted to offer a selection of stylish homes that tune into the latest trends and residents can feel proud to call home.”
