Autumn is here! And that can only mean one thing. It’s time to create cosy vibes in your home. As the weather starts the cool down and leaves start to transform into colourful reds, oranges and yellows, comfort and warmth become essential. Let’s explore how you can create a cosy-looking and inviting home this autumn.
1. Embrace Earthy Tones
If you’re a neutral decor type of person and don’t really like to decorate with colour, Autumn is the time to try new things with earthy colours and tones. Earthy tones blend extremely well with neutral or monochrome home decor and can add that extra touch of warmth and cosiness. For example, you can incorporate warm shades like burnt orange, deep burgundy, and olive green into your home decor.
Consider swapping out your summer throw pillows and curtains for ones in these tones. You can also add small accents like vases, candles, or artwork with earthy tones to create a cohesive look.
2. Cosy Textures
Autumn decor is all about snuggling up on the sofa with a cup of hot chocolate so you would need your sofa as comfy as possible. You can do this by adding soft and cosy textures like faux fur, knitted blankets, and plush or seasonal autumn ones to create an inviting and cosy mood.
3. Seasonal Florals
Yes, we’re going all out. We cannot leave seasonal flowers behind which are great for adding that extra touch to your autumn home decor. So swap out your summer flowers for seasonal autumn ones like sunflowers, dahlias, and chrysanthemums. Arrange them in stylish and earthy tone vases. This is also another for adding a touch of colour bringing the beauty of the season indoors.
4. Statement Candles
This is one of our favourites, because who doesn’t love candles! When it comes to creating a soft and cosy atmosphere in your home this autumn, candles are a must! Putting on a candle after a long day at work can actually help you unwind and relax too.
When picking out your candles, choose seasonal scents like pumpkin spice, cinnamon, or apple pie. Place these candles anywhere you want to create cosiness and warmth. For example, your living room, bedroom or bathroom.
5. Autumn-Inspired Artwork
Switching up your artwork can really make a difference as artwork can instantly transform the mood of a room and make it feel more seasonal. You can transform your home with autumn-inspired wall art pieces whether these are framed prints or canvas paintings. Again, choose artwork with earthy tones and textures to create a cohesive look and feel with the rest of your autumn decor.
Most importantly, also make sure you add your own personal touches. Whether these are framed family photos or decor pieces with sentimental value to make your space truly feel like home.
