The nights are drawing in and the weather is getting cooler, we all know what time of the year it is. Even though it is always a little sad saying goodbye to summer, there are plenty of things to look forward to in the autumnal and winter months.
Whether you love the Christmas spirit, the fall fashion, the happiness you feel when you are sat at home wrapped up warm while the weather is miserable outside. Whatever it might be, you usually spend more time at home during this time so you want to be prepared.
How Can I Make My Home Feel More Autumnal?
The easiest and cheapest way to make your home feel more autumnal, is to represent the season. What does that mean you may ask? It’s all about autumnal colours and layers.
You may think of warm neutrals, burnt orange, deep red or cooler neutrals, emerald green and deep blues. Then with the layers, you can begin to incorporate more blankets and throws, maybe some more throw cushions to make your living room and bedroom even more cosier.
Accessories can be another inexpensive and easy way to make your home feel more autumnal. Look for pieces in your autumnal colour scheme that add the finishing touches to your space.
What’s On Our Autumn Must-Haves List?
1. Blankets & Throws
The colder months lead to us using our blankets and throws more, and there is no better way to achieve that cosy feeling than being surrounded by comfy textures.
There is also no better feeling than being cosied up on the sofa or armchair, while the rain hits the window wrapped in your favourite throw knowing you can enjoy the warmth in your home. So make sure you have one within close reach for whenever you need it.
Candles hold the power to achieve a comforting and calming feeling to any room. They are underrated when it comes to home décor as they have endless styles and colours to add elements to your home. They can also bring an array of scents to your home.
You can cluster groups of candles together, vary the height and style, colour selection and feature stylish candle holders.
You can create still lifes featuring candles on a shelf or a coffee table. One design we have seen throughout the year and years previous, is the Noguchi Coffee Table. The glass top provides a great backdrop for a stand out still life, while the unique legs provide their own style statement.
3. Comfy Seating
Nights or weekends spent indoors, binge watching your favourite movies, TV shows, listening to your favourite music or podcasts, or picking up and reading your favourite book. And these can’t be enjoyed to their full extent without adequate seating. Your spot needs to be comfy so you can sit there for hours, while looking stylish. Even though this is one of our autumnal must-haves, you want it to transcend through seasons and trends.
Throw cushions provide the perfect welcoming and warm atmosphere making the space more enjoyable to spend time in. You can use them to update your home to reflect seasons, which is why they are a must-have on our autumnal home décor list.
5. Layered Lighting
The darker days means there is more emphasis on the right lighting for your home. Various lighting options are needed, including overhead lighting, floor and table lamps. Depending on your mood and your activity, you will want different levels of lighting.
7. Dining Tables & Chairs
You don’t have to compromise when it comes to staying in but still wanting to socialise with friends and family. The right dining table and chairs will give you the ability to entertain throughout the colder months, whether that’s a simple hot drink and biscuit, or a full thrown dinner party.
At the end of summer, it is all about transitioning your home to feel more comfortable and welcoming ready for more time spent indoors. With more time spent indoors, this can be a great opportunity to refresh your home. Whether that’s giving it a deep clean, a fresh lick of paint, decluttering or some new pieces for your home.
