How to Add Autumn Decor to Your Home
A new season brings new trends along with some classic cosy decor changes. Here are some ways you can add an autumnal feel to your home;
GOOD AS GOLD
Introducing those warmer colours into a room is one of the best ways to welcome Autumn into your home. When thinking of Autumn, you immediately think of those bright, eye-catching reds, yellows and oranges and it is the same when decorating your home. These warmer tones help create a cosy feeling in a room and bring an instant warmth to your living environment. Adding gold elements do this too and can be as simple as adding a new lamp or upgrading your light switches to that more sophisticated gold effect to provide that subtle but effective feel.
ALTERNATIVE COLOUR SCHEME - BERRY
If golds and oranges aren’t your styles, you don’t have to worry. One of the colour schemes you can use to provide a refined autumn feel is the berry palate. Deep purples, mulberry marrons and beautiful blues all provide that calm and comfortable feeling you want to create on these upcoming colder nights.
NATURAL TEXTURES AND WOOD TONES
If you’re looking for a way to make a room feel more autumnal long term then adding natural wood and textures is the way to go. Distressed wood furniture creates an old-school, rustic feel to a room and instantly makes a statement in your home. This doesn’t have to be confined to your living area but can be used in dining rooms, hallways and your kitchen! Add in some contrasting warm and cool neutrals for a colour scheme that’s rooted in relaxation. To polish things off, to provide a natural and authentic feel.
PEPPER IN FALL ACCESSORIES
You don’t have to go overboard and create a whole haunted house in your street but adding some seasonal decorations can accentuate the autumn feel in the house. Pumpkins can be the obvious choice but artificial leaves, autumn wreaths and acorns can all be used as autumnal decoration without having that spooky Halloween feel. If Halloween is your decoration vibe, however, feel free to scatter around the ghosts and pumpkins as you like.
