There’s no denying autumn is here. The colours in nature are just sublime; different shades of orange, russet, plum, yellows and green grace the trees and bushes, a final flourish of colour before the leaves fall and winter sets in. Autumn also just happens to be my most favourite of seasons. The slightly damp misty mornings, the cooler crisper evenings walking along leaf covered pavements. Autumn colours are a favourite of mine all year round. When I look at the colours I like to decorate with, especially in my lounge, I see autumn. Somehow I have always gravitated towards those rich warmer colours as opposed to crisp cooler whites and pastels.
This time of year we all want to get a little bit cosier, light fires, put out more throws for snuggling and cuddling under and stock up with hundreds of tea light candles for those long evenings with flickering candlelight. Even if you have a monochrome palette of mainly whites with hints of grey and black, you’ll want to layer up on the textiles and cushions, bring in more sheep skins, mohair blankets and soft wool.
My glass coffee table with my Turkish rug underneath which I've had for about 20 years, still an absolute favourite of mine, the design is really different and it just adds tons of character to my lounge.
I've seen a few things on the high street I really like to spice up your living space, particularly cushions in warm coppers and beautiful greens. Pineapples are still very much on trend as well as warm metals like brass and copper. Soft greys and neutrals are still a big hit with those who don’t like too much colour. And how cute is that wire bird?
Wishing you a weekend of cosiness!
