How to Achieve the Perfect Interior Design for Autumn

Autumn is a time for change. It’s a time to think about what you want to do differently. We’re here to share our favourite trends in decorating your home for the autumn season.

The 1970s Are Back

The 70s revival is a trend that is still going strong. The laid-back styling, natural materials, and earthy tones are making a comeback.

We can see this trend in fashion, home decor and even food. In the home, more and more people are furnishing with an eclectic mix of textures and patterns such as animal prints, furry shawls, and velvet fabrics matched with a strong focus on natural materials like rattan, cork, and macrame wall hangings which are bringing the 1970s back in style. There is also an increased interest in handcrafted ceramics and houseplants.

Bare necessities

A bare essentials room is a space where you can feel at ease. The idea is to create a space that is comfortable and that feels homey but not overwhelmingly full. This trend has been popularised by the likes of Marie Kondo, who advocates for minimalism and decluttering.

Your home should be a place where your senses are not overwhelmed by too many colours and textures. The goal of this type of design is to make the space feel calm, relaxing, and welcoming.

When you are decorating a space such as your living room, it is important to make sure that the colours you choose are not too strong. They should be subtle and calming so that they can provide a sense of peace to the space. The use of light browns is a great way to create a warm, inviting space without having to invest in expensive materials and furniture. A simple accent piece such as a pillow or throw can also be enough to bring light and texture into the room.

Display your decor

Open shelving is a trend that is not going away anytime soon. The reason for this is that it offers an eye-catching way to display your dishes and glasses, while also giving you the space to store your utensils and pans.

Hooks, hanger racks, and rods are a really good way to keep utensils and pans at the ready. A rustic touch can be added with old antique dishes and glasses. It also makes it so easy to keep everything in view. You don’t have to go digging through your cabinets trying to find what you’re looking for.

Add some pink

The colour pink has come a long way from being just a girly colour. It has become the symbol of wellness and it is spreading its influence far and wide in home design.

This is not the first time that pink has been popular in the home. For centuries, it was a common colour choice for those who were wealthy enough to afford expensive dyes. In the 20th century, the middle class began using more of this soft shade in their homes too.

Today, pink is a popular choice for home decorating because it can be used to create warm and cosy spaces without being too bright or overwhelming.

There are many reasons why this trend emerged. One of them is that people want to feel happy, calm and relaxed in their homes. Another reason is that people are trying to bring more colour into their homes, especially after we spend most of our days in work surrounded by white walls and dark colours and the gloomy overcast days that this time of year can bring can certainly dampen your spirits. So make it that you can come home to a place of warmth, light and happiness.

Autumn Home Decor Tips and Ideas

Autumn is a time of celebration and tranquility. The air has a new crispness, the leaves are turning, and the days are getting shorter. The cooler temperatures make for perfect evenings spent indoors, with family and friends.

Some quick tips for seasonal decorating is to bring the outside into your home this autumn such as pumpkins and corn stalks on your side table or mantle for an inviting autumnal feel or a simple wreath on your front door for an easy way to welcome guests into your home.

Table Settings for Seasonal Entertainment

The idea of ‘autumn’ is a little more nuanced than pumpkin spice lattes and pumpkin patches. Autumn is a time to celebrate the harvest season, the changing leaves, and the cooler weather.

The autumn and winter seasons are the perfect time to dress up your table for entertaining.

Burnt orange, mustard yellows and a warming taupe palette are all great colours for the darker months. Although they will be less bright than summer colors, they will still be warm and inviting. A burnt orange colour looks great with autumn foliage such as goldenrod and oak leaves. Mustard yellows in the form of placemats or other linens are another great colour for this time of year that will bring warmth to your table setting while still being soft enough not to clash with your other fall colours. A warming taupe palette in serveware or furniture will also go well with any autumn-themed decorations you might have on display!

The colour scheme should also take into account the type of event that you are hosting. For example, if you are hosting a dinner party, you might want to try out a more formal setting with white or ivory linens with gold accents on the table. If you’re going for a more rustic look this season, try going bold in your serveware by pairing burnt orange dishes with natural wood tableware or even an old weathered wood table as the focal point of your space. If you’re looking for a colour palette that will work well with the burnt orange, mustard yellows and taupe hues that are prevalent in the autumn, try pairing them with navy blues, dark greens and deep purples.

A Warm Welcome to Autumn

For some people, Halloween decorations are the most exciting part of the season. But for others, it’s the themes of harvest and all the seasonal dishes that come with it. If you’re looking to bring autumn into the entrance of your home this year, pumpkins, gourds and squashes are a great starting point for creating a seasonal display. They are easy to find in the supermarket and they come in many shapes and sizes. Or if real pumpkins sound too messy for we have a gorgeous selection of velvety pumpkins available in-store. You can pile them up on a console, sideboard or lone chair for an authentic fall display.

Gather around the outdoor fire

A fire pit can be a great addition to your back garden at any time of the year, not just summertime. During the colder months a fire pit or chiminea will provide you with a cozy space to gather around and socialise with friends and family while keeping warm. The fire will add extra light and can be used for seasonal treats, such as toasting marshmallows or warming mulled wine.

Make the living room the most important space in your home

The living room is the most important space in a home and it should be welcoming, comfortable and inviting. It is a place where you can relax with your family or friends after a long day at work. It’s also where you can cosy up to watch your favourite TV series or Halloween movies while enjoying some snacks. Your living space should be inviting and warm with plenty of natural light, but also feel like your own personal retreat. There are many ways you can achieve this, but here are some our favourite tips on how to decorate your living space for winter so that it feels like home.

  • Use neutral off-white paint on the walls to create an inviting atmosphere.
  • Add terracotta, clay or rust colors throughout your soft furnishing and decorative accessories for a warm feeling.
  • Add decorative objects like plants, paintings or ornaments to create an overall mood in your space.

A living space should be a place where you can feel comfortable and at home. That’s why it’s important to take care of the design and furnishings of your home. With a few simple changes, you’ll be able to create the perfect space for yourself.

Create a home that is as cosy as you are

Home is a place where we spend most of our relaxation time. It is important to make it as comfortable as possible. That is why we should make sure that it has the right atmosphere and mood. We can do that by adjusting the environment in our home to suit our needs. There are many ways in which we can achieve this goal – by adding textured accents to the room, by using rich scents or by adding cosy essentials like a blanket or a pillow.

The first step in adjusting your home environment is to get rid of the clutter. If you live in a small space, try to use every inch of it. Keep only the things that bring you joy and will make your living space feel more like home.

If you have a lot of clutter, but can’t seem to part with it, try this technique:

  • Take a picture of your cluttered area.
  • Sort through items one by one and take out anything that doesn’t bring you joy or fit the theme of your room.
  • Put everything else back where it belongs.
  • Take another picture of your new clean space and appreciate the difference.
