Autumn Styling

By Design, Design & Decorate No Comments

As summer fades out and we glide into autumn, it’s time to transform your home to capture the essence of the season by adding colour, warmth and cosiness inspired by nature. Whether it’s the colours of the changing leaves, the deep browns and rust colours, or the warmness of a roaring fireplace, autumn is a cherished time of the year. A time to relish the crisp, cool weather this time of year brings and the abundance of nature-derived accents.

Autumn is associated with twigs, pomegranates, pumpkins, nuts, gourds and the sweet smell of vanilla and cinnamon candles, colourful leaves on the ground being blown around lazily by cool winds and soft rainy days and crisp clear nights. Adorn the interior of your home with a few simple decorations and accessories in earth colours to reflect an outdoor setting that is worthy of a feature in a national home decor magazine! Now is the perfect time to add a few festive touches to cozy up your space this season.

Whether it’s a rustic or elegant design you are aiming for, dress your home with the season’s harvest for a cozy interior. If you have wall-art with autumn scenery, hang them on your walls. Make a table centrepiece that includes candles and cinnamon sticks. Gather some branches and place them in a Larvik Vase Rose Gold vase. Hang a warm and cozy blanket on your favourite sofa for a protected and delightful feeling. If you have a fireplace, have a twig basket filled with logs waiting to crackle. Arrange a wrought iron candelabra and some seasonal fruit such as pears and apples or pinecones on the mantel. On the thresholds and windows you can put a few small pumpkins in different shapes and sizes.
