How to get your home Autumn-ready

26 August, 2016

As seasonal changes set in, welcoming chillier nights cuddled up on the sofa seem like a world away from the summer highs we’re now experiencing. But even if we’re in the midst of a sunny spell, there are still small steps you can take to create an autumn-ready feeling in your home. From stripped-back textiles to autumnal wallpaper, here we explore how to transition from summer liveliness to autumn cosiness.

Pared-down palms

Botanicals are back, and summer’s biggest interior pattern trend will be sure to follow through to autumn. Exaggerated palm prints and monstera leaves have taken the season by storm – to channel an autumnal variation of this trend, pare down the punchy hues in favour of earthy palm prints. Swedish designer, Linnea Nilsson Lundell, has created Monstera – a beautiful repeat pattern that’s perfect for a living room feature wall. Get the look and update your home accessories to reflect the green hues in this piece. Introducing decorative throws and house plants will work well to create an extra sense of harmony in your home.

Practical accessories

Rainy season is around the corner, but it’s not always possible to keep an umbrella at hand. Decorative updates such as coat hooks and stands not only keep your rainy things in check, but also make a subtle feature of practical interior staples that don’t really excite the senses. Hunting for wall hooks that match your home style can add unexpected character to your hallway. If you’re particularly a fan of the monochrome trend, channel contrasting coat hangers with monogram imprints to inject some personality into your storage space.

Power of the plaid

A firm favourite among keen crusaders of cosiness, plaid is the perfect transitional pattern as it’s so versatile. It can be styled out in summer with neutral shades and in autumn/winter with dark, ethereal tones. Soft textures pair really well with tartan, and swapping out your light summer fabrics for heavier blankets and cushions helps to give your space a refresh without it dominating your interior style. If you’re looking for a quick-fix in your bedroom, consider updating your headboard fabric to a plaid pattern. Alternative autumnal cues such as deer wandering in the wilderness look fabulous on a canvas print. The Photowall Fallow Deer features stunning burnt orange and green tones that really suit the season.
