A home interiors revamp for the colder months coming

A home interiors revamp for the colder months coming

As the days turn cooler, leisure time is increasingly spent indoors and viewers take more notice of decor. To maximise your enjoyment and stage your home for the season, we share our top tips for Autumn…

1.     Colour inspiration from the weather

 

As the nights draw in, cosy becomes key. Take a good look at the nature around you, the rich berries, the darkening skies, the orange and reddening hues of leaves that are dropping from trees. All these autumnal colours are warm, rich and comforting; take inspiration from them for your colour palette. Using them in your accessories adds an instant injection of warmth.

 

2.     Splurge on sofa style

 

What should your statement piece of the season be? This season we would splash out on a little luxury in the sitting room by adding cushions and throws on the sofa. They do not only bring comfort and warmth, but as the nights draw in they add a splash of colour. Changing cushions every couple of years helps to keep your room up to date and looking fresh without spending too much money.

 

3.     Unusual autumn colours

 

There is more to autumn than the deep red colour of fallen leaves. Orange is particularly fab for autumn – taking inspiration from the changing colours outside, it adds a zap of colour that blends in with the majority of schemes really easily. This year will have a strong yellow tone added to it with ochre becoming a real on trend colour. The strong mustardy tone works really well to bring in an almost gold shade to schemes.

 

Pink is also having a moment and can be used in varying tones to create different ambiences and atmospheres. Dusky pinks are just beautifully warm and classic, mixed with ochre and grey they are a real winner for autumn.

 

4.     Base colour to change with the season

 

With grey being a base palette that most people now have in their homes, the introduction of a colour can lift the space and add visual interest. Green tones from emerald to chartreuse can be used to accessorise your home, from a cushion, candle, photo frame or, for the more daring, an upholstered product such as a chair or sofa.

 

5.     Geometrics

 

This year has seen a lot of geometric designs used for tiles, fabrics and wallpapers and they are set to continue into next year. Injecting something into your home for whatever the reason, maybe to add a splash of colour, can be done with little expense. A colourful piece of artwork, cushions in bold fabrics or a statement piece accessory can bring the room to life again.

 

6.     Light and layers

 

The Danish trend of ‘Hygge’ is perfect for the colder months – with a huge emphasis on good quality lighting to illuminate the darker days and lots of candles and layers to add warmth and cosiness to rooms.

 

Sheepskins, throws and shaggy rugs are all perfect for adding an extra layer to a room, creating a super cosy space that will make you eager to get in from the cold. Just adding a few of these to the room will instantly transform the space into one ready for a hot chocolate and a book.
