Styling your home for autumn

Which season is your favourite? Maybe there are parts of each of the four seasons you like? The freshness of spring, the heat of summer, the falling leaves in autumn and the crisp chill of winter – each season has its very own appeal and admirers.

Autumn has to be the top time of year for decorating because of its sheer versatility and variety. From traditional colours and textures, to natural accessories and furniture, here are some ways to add an autumnal touch and style your home for the new season.

Go for plum tones

If you’re in the process of planning a room upgrade, then you might want to consider painting the wall a deep and sumptuous plum shade. This is a colour that works really well at bringing the whole feeling of autumn to interiors.

Hang a wreath

For the slightly less ambitious, a simple wreath made from fresh flowers and foliage is a lovely way to brighten your front door or interiors. Choose flowers like hydrangeas which dry in a beautiful way and will look great long past their ‘best before’ date.

Invest in wood furniture

Wood is always a great way to add warmth to a home. Furniture, flooring, and shelving can completely transform the feel of a room. Obviously, this kind of investment is not just for one season and will stand the test of time, but it does seem to suit this season particularly well.

Think about texture

If you don’t want to spend a fortune redecorating for autumn, think about accessorising your rooms with natural materials, twigs, baskets, heavy wools and linens. Autumnal doesn’t always have to mean deep and heavy colours, and you can easily create a seasonal look when you add tactile pieces to your home.

Try a minimalist autumn look

If you’re looking for a more masculine version of an autumnal interior, then try using muted colours and simple, geometric patterns. When combine with black, charcoal and gold, this look will be completely grown up and without even the slightest hint of the often-expected country look. Keep accessories to a minimum and this look will be timeless.
