This season we’re loving the gorgeous décor trends that celebrate the beauty of autumn. Late 2019 has seen a move towards rich colours and natural materials like wood, copper and granite, and these elements bring an organic and warm atmosphere to any space.
Follow these tips and you can update your décor to reflect the changes in nature, while creating an ambience you can enjoy all year round:
1. Embrace vibrant colours…
A lick of paint is an easy way to give your home an instant facelift. Vibrant autumn colours like red, burgundy, burnt orange and golden yellow will add warmth to your space and make it feel cosy and inviting. These colours look spectacular in sunlight too, perfect for enjoying those autumn sunsets. For a softer look, team bold autumnal accents with earthy neutrals like chestnut, honey and vanilla. Take a look at Craig & Rose for a great selection of warm autumn paint colours.
2. …Or go dark and moody
As the nights draw in and the evenings get chilly, now is the perfect time to make an impact with deep and moody colours. Black and gold tableware is a sophisticated twist on Halloween décor and will add a touch of drama to your dining area. Go for burgundy and magenta velvet furniture to create a hint of gothic charm, and accessorise with flickering candles displayed in jet black lanterns or candlesticks.
3. Bring the outdoors in
A simple way to celebrate the beauty of nature this season is to bring it into your home. Go for dark flowers or a leafy bouquet of russet coloured foliage, and pair with rustic accessories like vintage bottles, jars or distressed trays. For a modern and minimalist display, collect a few branches and arrange them in a clear vase.
4. Layer natural materials and rustic textures
Organic materials will give your home a relaxed feel, while layers of contrasting textures add interest to your décor and create a cosy environment. Offset rich, dark wood with patterned textiles in vibrant colours; think rustic checks or stripes. Invest in soft furnishings like throws and cushions in wool, velvet and faux fur to keep you snug as the temperature drops. And to anchor your space, choose a warm rug in Autumnal colours. House of Isabella has a lovely range of soft furnishings in autumnal colours and natural textures, to suit every taste.
5. Create a focal point
As the weather gets colder, you’ll be spending more time by the fire. Why not have something elegant to look at? Transform your mantle or fireplace into the focal point of your room. Think dark foliage, gothic art and banners. For a more rustic feel, go for wreaths and classic autumn motifs like leaves and gourds.
