Our Autumn Tips

Autumn Edit
Autumn is the time where we bring out our woollen scarfs, hats and jumpers. It’s the transitional period where we begin to see the leaves change and fall. There is a sense of change in the air and because of this I am going to show you how to change your home into the perfect autumn escape.

Colour Pallet

Everyone knows autumns colour pallet, its warm and full of earth tones. Pretty much sums up everyone’s wardrobe? However, there has been a recurring theme in this year’s interior world which is blue tones and it doesn’t seem to be going anywhere this side of Christmas. Luckily for you, this is colour adds richness to your autumn colour pallet. Using this colour as a base tone or adding it into your accessories with your traditional fall colours.


As the nights begin to darken nothing screams autumn like your mood lighting. Create that cosy home feel with lights and lamps with warm lighting is the perfect option to create that perfect autumn mood. My favourite lighting accessory this autumn is LED Flame effect candles, these are the perfect add on to any room creating that perfect candlelit lighting.

Experiment with textures

To create that warm autumn atmosphere within your home try mixing up your textures with tweeds, wools, and cotton. You can achieve this through statement throws, cushions, and rugs. Either one or all of these add a statement feature to your home this autumn.

Decorate your walls

Wreaths aren’t just for Christmas, add a fall wreath to your front door to welcome in guests, creating an amazing first impression. Full your wreath full of autumn leaves, twigs and florals whether you buy or DIY it is the best way to add that autumn feel from the very first instant.

Floor Fashion

Layering clothes is a fashion must coming into these winter months, but layering your floors is also a essential. Take the cool look off those hard wooden and tile floors with shaggy rugs, or add a different print and texture to your carpet with one of our geometric or floral rugs.

Mix & Match

Rather than buying an entire set of furniture, mix and match this autumn as its one of the key trends this year! Mix and matching styles adds a more stylish feel to your generic room. There is usually common elements in different styles, these overlaps help pull the room together even though the pieces are unique.

Light it Up

There is nothing better than curling up on a cold evening in front of a fire! There is something cosy about it isn’t there? But I know some of you have no open fire, so here is my top tip; Grab a few logs, and some Christmas lights wrap it around and there you have your cosy makeshift fire!
