Embracing Autumn in your home
Dig out your knits, Autumn has certainly arrived with a drop in temperature, colder mornings, and crunchy crispy brown and orange leaves underfoot.
Creating a cosy and inviting atmosphere in your home with soft organic colours and warmer red tones is a wonderful way to embrace the rejuvenating spirit of the season.
To achieve this, consider the following elements, including the choice of floors, that can complement this colour palette.
Soft Organic Colours: Start with a colour palette that includes earthy and muted tones. Think of soft greens, warm greys, soothing beiges, and pale blues. These colours can be applied to your walls, furniture, and decor to establish a serene and calming atmosphere.
Warmer Red Tones: To add a touch of warmth and coziness, incorporate warmer red tones like terracotta, cinnamon, or deep burgundy. These colours can be used for accent pieces such as throw pillows, curtains, or artwork. Think pumpkins, butternut squash and golden crispy leaves.
Which type of flooring?
Hardwood Floors: Light or medium-toned hardwood floors can create a timeless and classic look. Oak, maple, or hickory with a matte finish would work well with this colour scheme.
Area Rugs: Consider adding area rugs with patterns or colours that complement the overall theme. Natural fibre rugs like jute or sisal can also add to the organic feel of the space.
Carpet: If you prefer the comfort of carpet, choose a carpet in neutral tones that match the overall colour scheme. A soft, plush carpet can enhance the cozy atmosphere.
Large Tile Flooring: For areas like the kitchen and bathroom, you can opt for large tiles in earthy tones. These can be used to tie the overall design together, and work really well in areas that can get wet easily.
Cosy furniture and accessories
Choose furniture with clean lines and natural materials like wood and leather. Upholstered furniture in soft, textured fabrics can enhance the comfort of the space. Accesorize them with super soft knitted blankets and soft velour cushions throughout to help you feel ultra cosy on the darkening nights.
Natural Elements: Incorporate natural elements like potted plants, dried flowers, and wooden decor to further enhance the organic feel. These elements can connect your interior with the changing outdoors.
Lighting: Soft, warm lighting is essential to create a comfortable and inviting atmosphere. Warm white or amber-toned light bulbs, and use table lamps, floor lamps, or pendant lights to create a cozy ambiance.
These simple pleasures help create a sense of comfort and contentment, making your home a welcoming haven during the season. Enjoy the crackling fire, the soft glow of lamps, and the peaceful ambiance of your well-designed space, all while relishing the beauty of the changing seasons. It’s a time to unwind, relax, and appreciate the simple joys of Autumn.
