With the cooler weather rolling in, it is time to think about switching up those bright, summery décor for more autumnal tones. It also gives you a chance to spruce up your home, ditch the clutter and maybe even give it a fresh lick of paint.
Here is a list of a few easy switches and changes that will help you set the mood for the new season in your home.
SWITCHING UP THE COLOUR PALETTE
One of the easiest things to switch up each season is the colour palette. For autumn try introducing deeper, darker hues as well as rich jewel tones (emerald green’s, navy’s, plum’s and burgundy’s). You can introduce these new colours in various ways, such as new cushions, linens, throws and smaller décor pieces. If you are looking to make more of a statement, maybe consider painting a feature wall. If you are wanting to stick to a more flexible colour, try a warm neutral tone. If you are wanting to try something more high impact, go all out with forest greens or burnt ambers.
COZY IT UP
Upgrade those thin summer linens to thick, cozy knitted throws and fluffy cushions. Try and mix up your textures by introducing luxe fabrics such as velvets and faux furs. Set the mood with warm scented candles – think cinnamon, vanilla and caramel. This might also be the perfect time to change your current bed sheets for a flannelette set, this will help keep you warm and cozy at night (and make your bed harder to leave in the morning).
LET THERE BE LIGHT
Draw the curtains and let the beautiful Autumn light in. The sun tends to be less harsh (and hot) during the Autumn months, so make the most of it! Not only will it make the space seem bigger, but it will also brighten the mood and create a better air flow. If you are looking for other ways to introduce light to your space, try moodier lighting. Try introducing floor lamps and table lamps with warm globes into the space, they will come in handy as the days start to become shorter and the nights longer. Opt for lamp styles that will suit your style all year round.
SWITCH IT UP
As the mercury drops, we start to spend more time indoors snuggled up on the couch, so this is the perfect time to assess your living spaces functionality. You might want to introduce more seating, start a reading nook or even just shuffle things around to give it a bit of a change.
- Add that extra quilt to your bed for those cooler nights.
- Keep it simple – don’t overcrowd and clutter the space, it still needs to remain functional.
- Try installing an outdoor fire pit. It perfectly suits the weather and it set your place as the go-to for gathering with family and friends.
- Take cues from nature – switch those bright blooms for rustic style arrangements (dried branches, muted tones, plums and deep coloured flowers).
There you have it! Some simple and easy ways to revamp your interiors and prepare for the cooler weather.
