Autumn Interior Design and Decoration Ideas
October 5, 2022
Whenever we talk about autumn, what do we tend to think about? What heralds the season for many of us is the change in temperature requiring a switch up of the cosiness of our home furnishings. In autumn interior design, it’s on trend to think warm and sustainable in terms of your cushions, blankets, rugs and throws in a full palette of autumnal colours such as mustard to pear, apricot, pumpkin and cinnamon.
Tell a story with your autumn interior design with a statement autumn wreath for your front door. Continue this autumnal nod to nature with a memory-making garland for your mantelpiece, further enhanced with a set of string lights in a leaf silhouette. You could even join in the popular celebrity social media trend with a full autumnal display from your front door to your porch and beyond – don’t forget a carefully arranged pile of pumpkins in all different sizes, shapes and colours in the corner! Carve a couple of them – try a friendly and a fierce one for balance and leave battery-operated tealights inside to light the way to your door.
Textile is tactile when it comes to autumn interior design
Young children love this time of year for puddle splashes, family walks in the park and endless kicking up leaf piles and cultivating an ever-growing (and of course, competitive!) conker collection. Create an autumnal wonderland for their bedroom with themed bedding and make a feature of their window blind this season. Ask Blind Technique for all the details on Children’s Bedroom Blinds.
A reading nook to devour your latest book
If you have a window-seat create a satisfying snuggle spot for you to read the book you have meaning to do so for ages. It will become the perfect place to retreat to on a rainy weekend afternoon. Don’t forget a place for your hot drink and your biscuits. Make sure your window-seat does double duty on some savvy shelving for all your atmospheric mystery novels for this time of year. If you have the space – bring out the rocking chair for maximum relaxation.
Autumn picture postcard your guest bedroom
As we lead up to Christmas, many friends and family may travel to visit us. Take the time to create an autumnal picture postcard in your guest bedroom. Pick a complimentary palette of colours for all the soft furnishings – including the bedding, cushions, blankets and throws. Consider the layered look for your window in the guest bedroom with a Roman Blind or a Roller Blind and made to measure Curtains for the ultimate cosy luxury. Don’t forget the little fun details in your kitchen – the aprons, towels and oven mitts.
Display the results of autumnal activities with your family
Autumn or Fall is often seen as a nostalgic reference point during the year. Suggest your children create a scrapbook which they can build on year on year. Try traditional needlecrafts or create a photo board of your autumnal adventures for the hallway. Teach your teenagers to knit or crochet their own hat or mittens – the perfect digital detox! Present the results of all their hard work on your newly decorated mantelpiece.
Go on a strategic treasure hunt for your autumn interior design
Look for good-sized acorns, horse chestnuts, dried flowers, substantial twigs and create bowls of interest for your bookcases, windowsills and shelving. Don’t forget the power of seasonal aroma within your autumn interior design with your candles and with your cooking. Sensory memory is both nostalgic and comforting in equal measure.
Lights, Camera, Table Displays
Tell the story of autumn (and later of Christmas) with your table displays. Your table runner sets the tone and acts as the stage to house a wide variety of natural elements, candles and string lights to bring the magic of the season inside at mealtimes. Consider your table – go for as large as you can to accommodate as many friends and family as possible, now that we can all be sociable once again.
