It is well and truly October, as the weather can attest! Now that it’s autumn, it’s easy to think that style doesn’t matter anymore. Interior and home designs are summer trends, right? You just want to survive the autumn and winter and think about renovating the home next summer. Well, not to burst your bubble, but interior design is a constant process. So, the fall is as significant as any other season to revamp the house.
If you don’t know where to start, you have come to the right place. Below are four ways to embrace autumn this fall.
There are classics hues which are synonymous with colder weather. From browns to oranges, experts say you should try and replicate the colours which are occurring outside. But, browns and oranges get old quick and don’t have the same pop. So, a home can start to feel tired and dull. The key is to infuse the entire house with relatable and powerful colours, such as purples and dark blues. Not only are they autumn shades, but they are dark and vivid. Plus, they are warm and add an element of cosiness.
Link To Outside
Just because it’s cold and rainy doesn’t mean you can’t bring the outside, inside. To start with, plants on the mantelpiece make it seem as if the Great Outdoors is in the living room. The same goes for stone or anything which you associate with outside. Alternatively, you can keep the outside where it is and visit it every now and again. Sunflex doors are a great example of patio doors which link the kitchen to the garden. As long as there are covers overhead and a heater, you can sit and enjoy the autumn weather. It might not be summer, but it’s a fantastic way to enjoy the garden.
Warmth is essential in an autumn house, but not just the temperature of the property. No, you also need features which look and feel warm as it adds to the atmosphere. Take rugs or carpets as examples. Today, homeowners are obsessed with hardwood flooring because it’s stylish and simple to maintain. However, the wood is too cold. A rug, however, has a high thread count and thick material. Plus, it adds an extra layer of material to a room. Another way to exploit this trend is with scatter cushions and throw pillows.
Light fixtures are a, well, a fixture of any home. In the summer, it’s good to have strong lights which illuminate the room. After all, you want to take advantage of the longer lasting sunlight. Autumn is different because the sun sets earlier. Sure, bright, powerful lighting will make it easier to see, but you are trying to establish a mood. Ambient lighting, such as a table lamp, is softer and offsets the atmosphere perfectly. Or, you can use spotlights to control the light settings.
Autumn is here and your home should reflect the season flawlessly.
