Autumn colours for your home

The season of chunky knits, crunching through the leaves, and pumpkin spiced lattes has arrived! And while it does mark the end of the warm summer months, the golden hues of autumn are endless sources of inspiration that can be weaved into your interior decor.

From the beautiful burnised tones of the changing leaves and glossy brown conkers, to jewel-coloured seasonal fruit and magical sunsets – autumn offers the perfect colour palette for adding a cosy and luxurious feel to your home. Here are just a few ways to embrace those luxurious shades this season.

Add warmth to dark walls

Painting your walls a gorgeous shade of burnt orange, rich red or deep maroon is the perfect way to make a room feel homely and inviting, especially during the colder months. If you’re worried that layering your room with dark colours will make the space feel flat, try adding interest with warm metallics and furniture in neutral tones.

Splashes of gold

If you’ve been inspired by the stunning yellow foliage that adorns your path on a late autumn walk, why not think about accessorising with warm yellows and golds? Statement pieces like big wall clocks or cushions and throw are the perfect opportunity to add a pop of gold to a space. If you’re looking to go a bit bolder, our gold velvet accent chair would make a feature of a corner of your living room or kitchen.

Embrace emerald greens

The grandeur of dark, emerald green makes a lovely statement when used on walls and pays homage to nature whilst making your home feel luxurious. If you don’t want to commit to changing your walls, consider adding emerald green accessories such as sofas, rugs or even plants for that indoor/outdoor feel.

Moody grey

Grey goes with almost everything and can really help accentuate other colours. Dark grey walls or sofas create the backdrop for other autumnal colours to thrive and can add a dramatic atmosphere to any room. If you’re feeling bold, you can also incorporate a contrast wall in a jewel tone to up the vibrancy and statement factor.

Dark natural wood tones

Natural woods are the perfect way to bring the outdoors indoors this season. Not only do they evoke a sense of nature but they also add a sense of refined opulence to your autumnal home.

Pumpkin spice and sweet cinnamon

The classic autumnal look would not be complete without the oranges and browns of September trees. These colours embody the autumn colour palette, and are a great way to add a touch of warmth to any room. You don’t need to go big here, a blanket draped over the end of your bed or a couple of cushions adorning the sofa are the perfect way to add these colours into your home.
