Does your home need an injection of warmth and cosiness this autumn? With the long nights drawing in, it’s time to say goodbye to the fresh touches of summer and hello to this year’s autumnal colour trends.
The transition into autumn brings with it dull skies and chilly nights, but don’t let that dampen your mood! It’s the ideal time to give your living space a seasonal make-over. There are plenty of ways to add autumn to your home and we’ve been on the hunt for colour schemes and cosy touches that’ll help you to settle into winter.
Choosing a Perfect Autumn Colour Scheme
Colour can change the mood of any room and when it comes to the autumnal colour palette, there are so many great options. Autumn is aflame with colour, starting with magnificent magentas, purples and ambers, all the way through to natural greens, yellows and earthy browns. Bursts of red hues and subtle golden glows can almost immediately give a sense of cosiness to your home. But, where do you start in choosing your ideal colour scheme?
Shades of pumpkin, rust and maple are autumn colours that can only help to add warmth to your home. Neither too bright or muted, these warming tones are a true reflection of the season. If you’re looking for bolder autumnal colour options, try rich reds, dark olive greens, pebble greys and aubergine purples. These sit at the darkest and boldest end of the autumn spectrum and are fantastic for contrasting with oyster whites and lighter autumn colours.
There are of course softer options. Warm but muted, soft colour schemes can provide subtle hints of autumn while still maintaining a gentle and calm aesthetic. Mellow rose, toasted oatmeal and light corals are the perfect alternative to using rich fall colours.
Redecorate or Accessorise with Autumn Colours?
You may opt to redecorate fully with walls of colour. Single colours such as deep gold can act as a perfect backdrop for the season ahead. Wallpapers on the other hand, for example with bold florals, can add personality, colour and texture. Mirrors can be used to bounce light throughout the space and are perfect for those smaller rooms. Furniture can compliment your new look, this includes choice of lighting, seating and curtains.
If you don’t want to make major changes, giving your home that autumn feeling doesn’t necessarily mean painting walls or changing furniture. Swapping cushion covers and adding throws or chunky knits are just a few easy ways to add warmth and texture. Also consider refreshing your living space with a rug that enhances your chosen colour palette.
It doesn’t stop at soft furnishings either. You can add to the autumnal ambiance by updating photo frames and lighting scented candles. Copper metallic accessories can create a warm glow too. Last but not least, bring the outdoors in by filling vases with seasonal flowers, branches, leaves and berries.
