Carly House from Carly House Interiors gives advice on bringing the new season into our homes.
The Autumn season has officially arrived, so draw the curtains, light the fire and snuggle up with your favourite film and chunky throw. The colder season is always more manageable snuggled up in soft textures and comforting colours, and that’s not just our wardrobes!
Wherever you love the chillier season or not this article will show you how you can recreate that cosy, autumnal feel within your home by choosing the right interior décor. Embrace the Autumn hues and cosy feeling by creating sophisticated Autumn interior using soft, warm hues and bold patterns.
Colour psychology is a fascinating topic. Here is how I use it for the Autumn season to create a feeling and not just a look.
Autumn colour palette is earthy, deep and rich. Just look at the ground and notice the colours of the leaves that have fallen. Yellows, golds and reds with a hint of black which makes them feel grounded. Use wonderful heritage prints (take inspo from Dutch Hertiage fabric and William Morris designs), velvets, rustic finishes and natural materials.
Adding small with big impact
Re-designing an entire room for one season can be a little bit OTT, so why not focus your attention on sourcing subtle and unique autumn decorations that embody the season. Things like introducing ornamental items, similar to these coloured table glassware that I found at nkuku. Change your bedding or add some extra scatter cushions and throws.
I love using golds and bronze hardware throughout a home anytime of the year, but a simple cutlery swap can make a huge difference.
A rug is an ideal accessory which can be changed to suit the seasons. When styling an Autumn home, a bold faux fur or shaggy rug would be ideal. Rugs with luxurious fluffy fibres help make your home feel warm and cosy as the weather gets cooler.
Combining faux and real is a great tip when styling your home for autumn. Anything that might wither and die during the season, such as fresh foliage and mini pumpkins can be replaced with artificial versions to keep them looking great throughout October and November. I love fern in the Autumn, the changing of colours really showcase the season. Add it to a console table or centre it on a dining table for the most natural of seasons vibes!
