Autumn is officially here and as the temperature drops, it is that time of year to enjoy nights in snuggled up under a warm blanket. Creating a cosy living space full of soft furnishings, natural accents and warm colours is a great way to take inspiration from the new season.
Colour is a simple and effective way to add an autumnal touch to any room. Burnt oranges, browns, moss greens and deep reds create warmth and take inspiration from the changing foliage. Adding accessories and soft furnishings such as cushions, rugs and throws, is an easy way to create this look in your home.
Natural accessories bring the beautiful colours and textures of autumn to your interior. Objects found in nature in earthy tones can be used as a decoration. Branches of colourful turning leaves, pinecones, pumpkins, and antlers bring the beauty of the changing outdoors inside. Soft lighting, created using lanterns and candleholders, adds a subtle illuminating glow that brings warmth and creates an inviting atmosphere.
Adding textured rugs, colourful cushions and snug throws to a room creates a warm and comforting environment. Reds, oranges, and yellows add a pop-of-colour in autumnal shades. Soft tactile fabrics, such as sheepskin, give a natural look and a luxurious, plush feel. Velvet fabrics create opulence and vibrancy. Layered cushions and throws instantly transform a sofa or armchair into a sumptuous haven. Perfect for those crisp autumn evenings spent indoors.
Exuding tactile warmth, wood is a timeless choice for the home. Rustic wooden furnishings in mid to dark tones are naturally in tune with the colours of the season. To emphasise the grain of the wood, place it against a rich coloured backdrop or team with warm accessories and soft furnishings.
Pumpkins are not just for Halloween. They can be used to create an autumnal display to capture the feel of the season. Pair with lanterns and woodland foliage to form an eye-catching display in your hallway.
Bring the beauty of nature and the autumn season to your home for a cosy, inviting atmosphere.
