Cosy up for Autumn …
Tips from us for the Season
The nights are getting colder, leaves are falling from the trees and we’re readying ourselves for winter – there’s no better feeling than being warm and cosy this season. Autumn is a beautiful season, with its orange and yellow leaves and bright red berries. It’s the perfect time to wrap up for a walk – then come back to an inviting home.
Take a look at the fabrics in your room. Summery-looking cottons and linens are perfect when you want to cool down, but now there’s a nip in the air, it’s time to add in different textures.
A statement, supersized throw, or an oversized accent cushion can instantly transform the look and feel of your living room or bedroom. Textural and diffused fabrics like soft cashmere, faux fur, and fuzzy wool can all create that cosy feel. Introduce classic, sumptuous textures such as velvets, sheepskin and suede, wool, tweed – these are your friends when autumn arrives, so bring them into living spaces and bedrooms.
Refresh your bedding. Get ready to snuggle up! Invest in extra layers such as throws and cushions to create the perfect setting for winter nights. Update your bedding for the new season and go for this year’s on-trend colours and designs.
Update your colour schemes. Embrace the deeper tones of winter blues and forest greens which will add a touch of luxury and opulence to your home. Think dark, elegant colours alongside warm lighting and reflective surfaces. Maybe just paint one feature wall.
Change your home fragrance. This a simple yet effective way to welcome the new season, with a nod to autumnal hues. Look for rich and warming scents combining bergamot, frankincense and amber, which are ideal to capture the aroma of a crackling open fire.
