Seasonal Interiors: An Autumn Makeover
As the temperature gets crisp, we start to crave warm, cuddly textures in our homes.
Adding some soft and warm textured items throughout your home might make the transition to cooler temperatures a bit easier.
A change of seasons presents the perfect opportunity to revamp a space. If time allows or if you’re looking for a DIY project, this could involve a complete change of colour palette. However, if you’d rather take baby-steps then perhaps consider changing the configuration of your furniture or switching some staple pieces from one room to another. It may sound simple, but even a small change can breathe new life into a space.
If you’re game enough to go for a total colour overhaul, we recommend sticking with the forecasts of the experts. Pantone, a world-renowned authority on colour, have placed a huge focus on neutral tones in their recent campaigns. What they are calling ‘neo-natural’ evokes a garden ambience, with hues of light greens, earthy tones and balancing neutral greys. To truly embrace the beginning of autumn in your home, it could be a great idea to give a tired room a fresh coat of paint. Vibrant indoor plants always look amazing with backgrounds of natural colours and will immediately make a space feel brighter, too.
As the temperature gets crisp, we start to crave warm, cuddly textures in our homes. Think along the lines of – a knitted throw sprawled across your bed, velvet cushions on the lounge, even new bathroom mats can do the trick. Adding some soft and warm textured items throughout your home might make the transition to cooler temperatures a bit easier.
“Sticking with classic materials, such as high-quality timber, is a way to prevent your staple pieces of furniture from looking dated.”
Sticking with classic materials, such as high-quality timber, is a way to prevent your staple pieces of furniture from looking dated. Depending on the style or design, timber generally fits in with most colour schemes. If you are planning on buying new furniture this season, why not explore local workshops and source local makers to find something completely original or acquire a bespoke piece just for you.
Overall, we think shifting your furniture around, adding a few cosy accessories to highlight classic pieces, using a neutral backdrop and adding some lively plants is the perfect recipe for an ideal autumn makeover. There’s nothing that a revamp and a reshuffle can’t fix!
