Autumnal Inspiration for Your Interiors

Autumn is a turning point in the year. The leaves are taking on their vibrant rust and gold colours, there’s a definite chill in the air and there’s something magical about an autumnal atmosphere. That is exactly what we want to capture in homes by taking inspiration from the season.

Autumn’s palette is characterised by warm, earthy, and vibrant colours that reflect the changing hues of leaves and nature during the season. Some of our favourites are the burnt oranges, which work well with both grey and neutral colours. You can see here how the Hampshire Love Seat from Dusk brings a rich orange colour to the room that works brilliantly with a neutral décor. It could be a statement piece, or you could pick out accessories and artwork in more muted versions of the colour for a harmonious look. The natural tone of wooden legs is a nice touch to accentuate the autumnal feel.

You could choose the Flora Photogram from Oka or Faux Berry Spray from Layered Lounge to inject a splash of the beautiful orange colour into a room, or combine them to create a real autumnal impact. If you are adding seasonal foliage to your home, real or faux, consider the vase or planter, we suggest wood, brass or black planters or vases would work well to complement and enhance the warm tones of autumnal flowers and plants.

Textures play a big part in autumnal décor. It’s the season to get cosy and warm, and this is reflected in the use of cosy fabrics like wool, velvet and suede. You can use these fabrics for curtains and upholstery; when you are choosing a sofa, for example, suppliers will offer a wide range of fabrics to choose from when you pick on of their designs.

We love the Cabana Yeti Accent Chair from Where Saints Go, it is a real wow piece of furniture that embodies autumn with its sheepskin cover in neutral shades and natural wood arms. With a matching footstool available, you can cosy up this autumn in style!

If you are after a more subtle seasonal addition, the Shepherd of Sweden Sara Wool Pouffe from Jones and Tomlin could be for you. The felted wool finish will add a touch of luxury to any room.

Natural materials such as wood work brilliantly to enhance autumn tones, and they are versatile to be able to work with other tones and influences so won’t date it. We love the Norrebro Chest of Drawers from Swoon. Inspired from autumnal trends as it is with the natural wood grain and brass legs, it is a truly timeless piece that you will love for years to come.

For a quick and easy way to add seasonal colours into your home, look for accessories in the autumnal hues: deep yellow, reddish-brown, amber, copper and gold for example. Rugs, throws and cushions will work in your living room; for an autumnal feel in your bedroom, look for bedding in the warm autumn colours, candles and wall art.
