Autumn home design ideas
Autumn is right on our doorstep now, and with the new season comes colder weather, shorter days and great designs. We’re going to introduce some simple yet effective design ideas you can implement into your home just in time for the turn of the season, so you can feel as snug as possible and bring the enchantment of autumn straight into your home!
Introducing autumn features in your home
Autumn has one of the most beautiful and rich colour schemes of all four seasons, marrying crimson reds with dazzling yellows, you really are spoilt for choice when it comes to decorating your house.
Firstly, why not start by placing pumpkins or seasonal flowers, such as crocus or dahlias, around your front door or porch to begin letting autumn into your home. These little details will really help add to the autumnal feel in and around your house! For an extra rustic feel, place plants into meal plant pots to contrast nicely with the rich colours.
To begin adding some interior decor to your home, start simple. Adding some cosy blankets and pillows with rich colours and cosy feel will really add warmth into any room of your home.
You don’t have to keep the same colour scheme throughout the house. Although autumnal colours are great to work with a display, using deep purples and pinks will help break up the colour scheme well without appearing to garish or invasive.
Repurposing old furniture
You don’t need to keep purchasing furniture to match the seasons! A little bit of resourcefulness can go a long way to making your home feel cosier without the big price tag. Renovating old furniture can bring a comforting weathered feeling into your house, reflecting the autumnal season brilliantly, whilst giving your old furniture a purpose again.
You can really take the reigns here, whether you want to start off simple and recover some old chairs with more seasonal fabrics, or, if you feel comfortable taking it a step further, begin taking on a bigger renovation project. You can really find a lot of resources and take advantage of opportunities in your own home, to harmonize with the changing seasons.
Introduce layers for comfort
Creating layers in your home really helps add depth to your surroundings. It’s both visually appealing and interesting, as we can observe and appreciate the little things that have helped build up character into your room.
We can achieve this through adding prints onto walls, which are great at subtly creating familiarity and character in your home.
Having a classic and dominant centre piece will break up the space and introduce a flow to your room. This could be a grand table, an old fireplace or a comforting sofa, and can be a great way to tie the room together and set the tone for your colour scheme and aesthetic implements.
Finish off by introducing warm and inviting textiles and interesting accessories and knickknacks, such as amber and navy cushions and throws, overlapping rugs or interesting objects that can give your room character and talking features. These features will add to your autumnal home, whilst bringing in a touch of your personality, making your house look and feel warmer and more inviting. Creating a warm environment will be a critical part of making your home have a more autumnal feel to it.
To conclude, redecorating you home for autumn is a great way to introduce a new layout, style and overall feel into your house. Adding personal touches on top will complete your design and will let your house feel fresh and cosy for the approaching autumnal months.
