Autumn is a time when leaves are falling and kids are going back to school. Although we know that winter will soon be here we often feel like holding onto the last moments of Summer while we can.
That may be one reason why green is a popular interior design colour in autumn to give an idea of bringing outdoors indoors. These green shades are often complimented with warm oranges and browns to combat the falling temperatures outside.
Soft lighting and the warm glow of a log fire creates an inviting autumn ambience in any home and is complimented by the soft round curves found in 2022 furniture trends.
If you don’t want to change your whole decor just for Autumn then adding earthy coloured accessories such as cushions, throws and other inexpensive items can make a big difference to the way a room looks.
Items like rustic handmade footstools can help to create a comfortable and warm atmosphere in a room along with soft rugs to keep your feet warm underneath.
Autumn is a time of year where there is the perfect mix of warm sun and cool breezes, coupled with the beautiful colours of the turning landscape,When it comes to interiors, autumn is the perfect time to embrace this transitional feeling – and use it as a time to reset, refresh, and prepare your home for the cooler months."
Autumn styling is all about layers, like heavy floor rugs and soft blankets on your bed, snuggly throws on your sofa, lots of plush cushions and warm rugs underfoot, You can layer many textures together also, materials such as velvet, wool, cashmere and flannel and thick natural linens.
