As the seasons change and blooming flowers turn to falling leaves, many of us look forward to cosying up by the fire and enjoying what the cool autumn nights have to offer. Whether it’s layering up with our favourite throw, adding warmer hues to make up the autumn colour palette, or adding a touch of the outdoors through indoor plants; autumn is the perfect season to refresh your home décor.
Inspired by the handcrafted and homemade, a folk-inspired artisan interior design can conjure up homeliness and comfort in any room, making autumn the perfect time to introduce this trend into your home. From hanging frames complete with either photographs or pressed flowers, to floating shelves that add personality and a vintage edge to otherwise bare walls; no matter how big or small you decide to go, artisan accessories offer texture to a room.
Larger staple pieces such as patchwork quilts, knitted throws or tufted rugs fit perfectly into autumn interiors and add layers to a living room or bedroom; while woven cushion covers add warmth and colour to your fabric sofa. To add another layer of warmth for those colder months, incorporate oversized throws and blankets for a cosy sofa haven.
Seasonal colours, earthy hues and rich pigments
An autumn colour palette is timeless and is a look that can take your home through every season. So why not be inspired by nature and bring the warm earthy hues of autumn indoors? From fiery shades of red to burnt orange and rust, an autumn colour palette makes any home instantly cosy.
Take your autumn shades to the next level by matching your colour palette with naturally tarnished woods and metals which are in this season. By adding splashes of earthy colours to your autumn home décor in the forms of rugs, cushions or autumn decorations; this can make a neutral coloured room more warm and welcoming. To top it off, arrange seasonal finds and autumn foliage on shelves and table tops.
If you’re feeling bold or want to try something new, choose rich pigments and invest in a coloured sofa. Colour schemes such as daring orange, bright yellows and deep rouge can add a much-needed vibrant pop to your neutral browns and greys.
