Autumn is here, and with the changing colours of trees and colder weather, we are giving you the best ways to transition into the new season with simple decorating tips.
- Seasonal colours
Warmly tones of yellow, orange, red and browns are sure to make your home feel cosy during the season. Many people are inspired by the colours of changing leaves and focus on this when redecorating for Autumn. You could be bold and paint a wall in your house, or our personal recommendation would be to buy a rug to bring these colours into your space. Louis De Poortere Fading World rug in Mango Cream is the perfect size to fit in your living room and will warm up your space with earthy orange tones.
As the evenings get shorter and darker, there is nothing better than coming home to a well-lit, glowing room. Be sure to get a lamp shade or light bulbs with warm shades for extra cosiness. Also, with Halloween approaching, stock up on tea lights and use to radiate warm tones throughout your home.
- Blankets and quilts
If you have stored away your blankets or throws, get them out of the loft and throw them in the washing machine for another few months of good use. These are great to have at the end of your bed, but also work well over a sofa, a perfect addition for watching a movie.
- Outdoor furnishing
No need to forget about your favourite outdoor spot, even with the colder nights, you can still have comfortable evenings outside. Outdoor rugs are weather and water resistant and are a great supplement to make your outdoor space feel snug and inviting. The Checks Orange rug by Gan is perfect to lounge on with blankets for a cool autumn night.
- Keep those toes warm
The perfect addition to your home this winter would be an extremely soft shaggy rug. Plush by Asiatic Carpets comes in various plain colours to suit any interior space and is made with 100% polyester pile making this the deepest and most luxurious shaggy rug anywhere. Another great way to use rugs would be to layer them up. This brings extra colours and textures to your living area and oozes comfort.
- Light up the fireplace
A fireplace is a must have Autumn/Winter essential. It will instantly make your home feel warmer and cosier, even on the coldest of nights. A fireplace naturally draws people to the room, so make sure you shift your furniture, so it is the centre of conversation.
