Whether you’re inspired by the changing leaves on weekend walks, stunning sunsets, or deep chocolate-coloured conkers, take your cue from nature to bring the outdoors in and celebrate the arrival of autumn in your living and bedrooms.

Autumnal tones are rarely out of fashion in some way or another, but we’re seeing a return to the warmer side of the colour spectrum just as the temperature is starting to fall. Here are a few ways to savour the new season with your interior decor.

Switch to a seasonal palette

Create a cosy living room where you can relax and unwind during cooler months of the year. Use a base palette of natural tones in your walls, sofa upholstery, curtains and rugs to give you a blank canvas to switch up with burnished red and pumpkin orange coloured accessories

Autumnal displays

Make the most of the different pieces of furniture in your living room to introduce little vignettes of autumnal cheer. Use trays to group candles, dried flowers and decorative touches for a simple yet seasonal display on coffee tables, footstools or sideboards.

Layer textures

Combine a beautifully soft chenille sofa with mixed textured cushions for the ultimate cosy place to curl up and watch your favourite series on chilly autumn nights. Opt for cushions in different seasonal tones for maximum comfort and style.

Create a reading nook

Transform a corner of your living room into the perfect spot to retreat to on grey days. A velvet accent chair in rich burgundy sets the scene for autumnal interiors and pairs beautifully with our rich pecan-coloured Detroit sideboard and coffee table.

A simple way to update your bedroom is to give it a lick of paint, with earthy tones ideal for bringing warmth to your sleep sanctuary. Team with a natural-coloured upholstered bed and wooden bedside tables for a look that feels cosy and most definitely inviting.

Light it up

Set the scene for sleep and add ambience to your bedroom with a bedside lamp. Choose a warm bulb to illuminate your space with a pleasing glow and opt for a lamp in neutral colours to bring extra brightness to your bedside table.

Incorporate natural wood

While not technically a colour, natural finishes work beautifully with autumnal shades. The natural grain and texture complements any setting and adds cosy texture that’s perfect for this season and beyond.
