It’s that time of year when the warmth of summer starts to fade and the new trends for autumn and winter make an appearance. But as the vibrant colours of summer are perhaps all but a distant memory it doesn’t mean we still can’t bring colour into our home. When it comes to decorating for the season its all about experimenting with rich hues, mixing patterns and textures and being more creative with layouts. The arrival of autumn heralds earlier sunsets, cooler temperatures and a blanket of crunchy, russet-red leaves. With the seasons changing beyond the window, it is the ideal moment at which to revisit the styling of your home’s interiors, too.
Bring in as much of the outdoors inside, from adding furniture made of natural materials to earth inspired colour schemes. A natural timber table with glass top makes a real style statement and helps to reflect any natural light around the room.
Try a palette of cooler browns and tans to capture the crisp but cozy feel of autumn. A custom sofa in luxurious velvet with carefully selected accessories that play into the colour scheme. Rugs never fail to add an inviting touch to an interior. Go bold with deep emerald tones to draw the eye in and create real drama.
A pop of colour in a statement chair will instantly add style and focus to your space without having to decorate the whole room. Try jewel tones such as amethest, ruby and emerald. Blue can add a soothing aesthetic for your space and is evocative of the deep blue skies of summer past. Try a room which features hints of the colour in everything from the rug to lighting right through to your accessories and of course the walls for real impact.
Ultimately this time of year is about the home, family and settling down ready for winter. We naturally either embrace this change or try to cling on to summer for as long as possible. Whichever side you fall remember that any changes to your home are about making it more comfortable, more inviting and more enjoyable for you.
