After our long hot summer, it’s now time to dig out your fluffy socks, sip from mugs of hot chocolate, and sink into your comfy sofas as the chilly weather starts to make its way in.
Autumn is filled with inspiration for your home this year. The changing landscape is full of colours and textures that you can easily incorporate into your house to make it feel more inviting after spending the day out in the cold. To help you out, we’ve given you our top four tips and trends to help decorate your home for autumn.
1. DARK COLOUR SCHEMES
This year, Autumn is dominated by dark colour schemes, such as berries, deep greens and maple hues. Moody tones can look beautiful when contrasted with softer neutrals like grey, adding some light to the darker pigments.
Blue tones are becoming popular this season. Blue is a colour that can be dark enough to add warmth to your home, or light enough to break through the heavier tones. It’s a timeless and elegant colour that is incredibly versatile, as it can work for a base or a feature colour. It’s perfect if you don’t want to use black in your home, and can be paired with a wide range of colours and styles.
2. ADD TEXTURE
