October is here already and as the temperature starts to fall it is time to add those cosy touches to your home for the chilly days ahead. Of course, a shift in season doesn’t call for a full makeover but rather introducing seasonal shades, adding accessories and changing up those textures. Here are a few ways to ensure your home is set for the autumnal season ahead:
Lead With Leather
Leather natural tones mirror that of the autumnal season, so investing in a staple leather armchair or leather footstool in a warm tone gives you the ultimate autumnal feel and great foundation to begin the layering of your textures. Not looking to invest? Little touches can also help such as leather place mats to dress the table or leather details on cushions!
Texture, Texture, Texture
Waffle prints, antique printed rugs and monochrome designs have become the trends of the moment in the last few years and are also ideal for winter. A blend of tweed and leather ooze autumn and are great textures to add to your room that will transition perfectly from autumn to winter. Red, brown, and mustard tones add warmth but keep simplicity and elegance so can be introduced with wooden surfaces, shaggy rugs and soft furnishings.
Throw In A Throw
Add layers and cosiness with throws and blankets in warm tones for a great transition between the seasons. A chevron wool blanket in tones of mustard, masala and copper ripen a once summer room. The great thing about these colours is that the trends continue to reappear each year and may be stowed until the season comes about again.
Velvet bolster or embroidered pillow, a statement pillow can really add that much needed cosy aspect as well as warmth to dress your statement leather furniture.
Modern monochrome storage baskets add a little texture to your room, giving you stylish storage spaces in a contemporary way whilst traditional wicker baskets to store your throws adds a more country chic to your home. Get this in natural and earthy hues that will carry you forward into the winter months.
It’s All About the Little Things In Life
Candles are so versatile not just in autumn but year around, a burnt orange fragrance instantly transitions your home into a wistful aroma of cosy nights in of cinnamon and spice. A good statement pot or vase has too taken centrepiece within the home and paired with the right faux bouquet with some pampas flowers thrown in (targeting a huge interior trend this year by the way!) is a simple but chic fashion to convert your home to autumn this year.
The age old less is more really is key here, simplicity within a room usually is a lot more impactful and while every room needs a certain number of textured elements just be careful not to overload! A good variation of hard, soft, rough, and smooth textures is a great foundation to building the foundations to your autumnal home.
