As leaves begin to burnish golden colours and the evenings start to cool down it is time to transform your home to accommodate the unique atmosphere of autumn.
It is a photographer’s delight as warm colours and softer light envelope us. You can reflect this beautiful season throughout your home with a few simple changes.
Consider accessorising your core furniture pieces to add warmth and texture creating warm inviting spaces.
Autumn colours are traditionally taupes, browns, reds, oranges, olive and ocre. Even if these aren’t your preferred colours, you can still give the illusion of warmth with a splash of creativity.
Think texture. Velvet, tweeds, woollens and heavy weight materials in natural fibres. A heavy cable knit throw, placed strategically or film in the family room.
Pack away those lightweight summer cushions and create an inviting space to rest by accessorising with sumptuous scatter cushions in different textures and colours, feather filled adorning your comfy lounge or favourite armchair.
You may decide to recover furnishings to suite the season. A padded bedhead can go from summer sleek to autumn comfort. Accentuate a neutral canvas with layered bedding to make it irresistible to curl up under on a cool autumn evening.
Continue warm hues to your alfresco living and entertaining space. Simple placement of a floor runner through a doorway draws the eye to outside views and creates a feeling of continuity – making your outside living areas a part of your home.
Accentuate your outside living spaces with stone finishes that absorb the sunlight during the day and reflect warmth to ward off the cool evenings. While you may not be ready to pack away the outdoor umbrella, you could consider relocating it to allow for the changing position of the sunlight throughout the season.
Consider changing the layout of furniture. Move the focal point of a room away to a fireplace stacked with timber for the colder nights.
