Exciting Autumn Home Updates

Autumn is an exciting time of year. Yes, the days are getting shorter and the nights are drawing in, but there is something seriously satisfying about piling the log burner for the first time in many months, and sitting, snuggled beneath a throw on your comfy sofa.

The natural autumn colour palette is another aspect of this time of year that’s great to watch. The rich oranges, reds and browns of the falling leaves in combination with the deep reds and purples of ripe berries can be as lovely to look at as the vibrant foliage of spring and summer.

It’s easy to get on board with the changing seasons and inject a little bit of autumn into your home. Here are a few simple tips.

  1. Unleash the throws, cushions and draught excluders from their summer prisons

An excess of plush fabric can transform your interiors from the cool minimalism of summer into a cosy, comfortable haven for autumn and winter.

2. Go all-out for harvest and Halloween

Decorations aren’t just for Christmas, you can use the fruits of the earth to create exciting, and aesthetically pleasing displays on window sills, hearths and front porches. The bright hue of the pumpkin can easily form a focal point at this time of year.

3. Invest in autumnal bouquets

Celebrate the natural world with bouquets in an array of autumnal colours. Reds, yellows and oranges look simply stunning on tables, counter-tops and mantle-pieces. These shades are warming in their hue, ideal for creating that cosy, comfortable look and feel.

4. Fill your fruit bowl

Celebrate the harvest with fruit in a spectrum of colours – this is the time of year where you can get the pick of the crop so show it off!

It can be very easy to feel sad at this time of year, as the bright days of summer give way to winter darkness, but a little extra care and attention at home can help you relish the autumn, even when you feel the need to pull on that extra jumper.
