It’s almost time to start cosying up your home, making it inviting for the cooler months ahead.
A new season is the perfect opportunity to switch up your home interiors. Bring in the earthy autumn vibes into your home, while still enjoying the outdoor summer entertaining with these tips.
Autumn is traditionally associated with fiery yellow, golden and orange hues. Soft
furnishings in these bright tones are a great way to get the autumnal feel into your home. A simple cushion, area rug or throw can bring just the ‘pop’ you seek. Since you’re probably still entertaining outside, take these colour tones to your outdoor entertaining area too.
Just like your body, start layering your home to cosy it up. Dress your bed and furniture with throws and blankets of different textures. Add in pillows in different textures or bring in points of interest with an area rug or wall hanging rug
Even a statement furniture item in autumn colours and a texture that stands out from the rest of your furniture can dramatically shift the mood of a room – velvet couches are particularly popular here.
Adding new scents is a budget-friendly way to welcome the new season. For autumn replace your tropical and flowery scents for spicier notes. Comforting scents such as caramel, cinnamon or vanilla are popular in this season.
Dried flowers and leaves from the backyard are everywhere. You can add a nod to this by adding them into vases with wheat or stones to smell the change in season.
House plants are a great way to add a splash of colour to your interiors. Besides the aesthetic value, there are some health benefits of keeping plants in the house, including purifying the air.
Rugs are an easy and practical way to make a room feel warmer and inviting. Look for natural fibres such as jute or wool rugs. They are stylish, durable and bring in texture into a space. Rugs are especially useful additions to empty spaces such as hallways and foyers.
Replace lighter cotton bedsheets and pillows with heavier materials such as velvet or even quilted fabrics. When adding layers, heavier fabrics are far more effective in adding depth and warmth into a room.
As the days get shorter, there is lesser natural light streaming through the home. Cosy, artificial lighting, especially from lamps is a great way to light up your home whilst making it inviting for the cooler months.
