Autumn Decorations to Add to the Living Room
You have so much invested in beautiful bespoke fitted furniture that is seems a little bereft not to welcome autumn into your home. A fantastic, richly coloured month, it is the season that many of us enjoy. Make the best of it, in and outside of your home, before the grey, chill of winter hits.
What autumn decorations look best in the living room and that show your fitted furniture off to the best of its ability?
Tone & Texture
With winter snapping at our heels, now is the time to add depth to the living room by introducing more texture and tone to the space. This is easily achieved with natural fibres so dig out the wool blanket and throw, and replace the fireside rug with a wool one, deep in colour and pile. Reds and oranges are not the only autumn colours on offer however. Why not consider earthy, heather purple or even opt for the drama of midnight navy blue?
Introducing patterns inspired by nature also helps to add tone and texture, as well as break up what could become a monotonous landscape in the autumnal living room. Bold checks are always welcome, especially when used with block colours but why not try something different this autumn? Choose floral patterns with a muted colour palette and team it with small checks and earthy patterns, such as the trend for stag head cushions and more.
We have noticed this beautiful pattern begin to become popular again and we think that the traditional tapestry patterns and colours are ideal for the living room looking to bring more colour and warmth to the space. Considered by some as being old-fashioned, these open-weave textiles are perfect as a casual throw on the chair or couch, or even draped over a footstool.
Don’t be Afraid of Brown
Russet colours – dark, earthy browns – are often not used because they can look boring and a little bland. But we think russet, with tinges of orange and red is the perfect autumn colour. It brings deeper, earthier and warmer tones to a living room. If you are open to a spot of redecorating, why not create a feature wall in russet and off-set it with candles of an evening or the gentle flicker of small LED lights?
When you are trailing around the shops or get chance to take in local thrift or charity stores, keep an eye out for hand thrown or earthenware pots and ceramics. These make a terrific addition to a living room that is embracing the autumn season with aplomb.
Welcome Nature In
This doesn’t mean throwing open the doors and letting the howling wind through, but take a moment on your next walk to collect those fallen pine cones and other seed pods and arrange in an earthenware dish and place on the shelving of your fitted living room furniture.
