It’s the time of year when nights are drawing in and crisp autumnal leaves of beautiful sunset hues are beginning to fall – inspiring many of us to restyle our living space.

So, if you’re looking to embrace the season and switch up your interior design, here are some top tips to give your home a cosy autumn vibe…

Style begins at your front door

Hanging a beautiful autumnal wreath on your front door will set the tone for the season from the moment people enter your home. From dried flowers and wreaths made from wheat, to rustic woven branches and berry-based designs, a wreath is a decorative way to welcome the changing season.

Embrace autumnal hues

For seasonal shades, try adding warm copper and gold tones, or hints of yellow and mustard to please the eye throughout autumn. You could introduce occasional features, such as decorative ornaments, or swap out your usual cushions for something more reflective of the time of year.

And don’t forget to add some atmospheric lighting to really transform your living space into a cosy haven for the darker months of the year!

Layer up with texture

Add cushions, throws, and knitted blankets to create warmth and texture within your living space. Muted tones create a soft, sumptuous setting to curl up in, transforming your sofa into a calming retreat that you’ll love during those cool, autumnal evenings.

If you're looking for the wow-factor, try adding something bold – a strong colour to contrast against pale, neutral fabrics can give your autumnal look a truly striking edge!

Bring the outside inside

Floral displays inspired by the changing season are a beautiful way to celebrate autumn and give your home a cosy feel. Changing up the colour of the flowers you buy can be a simple way to introduce autumnal nature indoors, so why not replace white summer lilies with fiery red dahlias?

Decorate your home with pumpkins

Pumpkin decorations aren’t just for Halloween. They make a warm addition to your home, with a nod to the season that won’t go unnoticed.

This quirky interior style trend looks set to stay, so why not start looking for those perfect pumpkin decorations and give your home a contemporary makeover this autumn?
