One of the best things about the change in the seasons, is the abundance of new home interior collections out in the shops. It’s the time of year when making the home all warm and cosy is the goal, especially as the nights draw in and the temperature drops. Of course, how you style your home for the colder months is entirely up to you – you might be all about those autumn colours, or you might want to embrace tactile accessories to the max.

But you don’t have to completely renovate your home to get it ready for autumn – there are a few quick and easy updates you can make. So, let’s talk about how you can add a few new touches to your home ready for the autumn and winter season.

1. Embrace texture

We all know autumn is the time for keeping warm and cosy, so this is the perfect opportunity to build some texture into your fabrics and accessories. Think beautiful soft throws, sheepskin rugs and pelts, and warm wool or velvet cushions across sofas and beds.

2. Go for gold

Weave in gold accessories and design details to add a bit of autumnal warmth that looks fabulous teamed with wooden pieces. Ramp up the cosy factor with tactile cushions and bedding.

3. Style your sideboard

Give your sideboard an autumn refresh and display candles, lamps, and seasonal touches that make it feel homely. It’s a simple update that doesn’t have to cost much, and can easily be changed to reflect the time of year.

4. Inject some seasonal colour

If you fancy a little DIY project to keep you busy over the autumn weekends, why not give your walls a bit of a refresh? If you really want to embrace the time of year, go for berry tones that look fantastic teamed with wood furniture, plants and back-to-nature accessories.
