Autumnal interior inspiration

As the dark, chilly nights close in, you may be planning to spend a little more time in the comfort of your own home. Investing in a few key areas can completely transform the feeling of your space and ensure that you will always look forward to stepping through your front door at the end of a long day.

Inky blue or gentle grey

If you lean towards simplicity in your home, incorporating some grey hues alongside the neutral tones and natural texture of rattan will ensure your space feels calming and relaxing. These tones reflect the landscape outside as we move through the colder months and this link with nature creates a space that feels natural and grounded.

Sticking with a simple colour palette does not mean your space will lack character. Incorporating a glass console table will ensure your space retains an unexpected aspect of modernity amongst the other very natural tones, while choosing some key handmade pieces that you really love will add a splash of folk-inspired design. You can stick with a neutral colour scheme here or choose objects that provide a pop of colour for some added interest. Handmade objects carry a particular ambience because they are unique and you know that a lot of time, care and attention have gone into their production.

If your preference is for a rich ambience, try incorporating deep midnight blues and inky tones juxtaposed with splashes of vibrant coral and golden yellow. The latter tones are reminiscent of a beautiful autumnal sunset, which will keep your space feeling very warm and comfortable, with the blues providing a bit of an edge and preventing your space looking too bright.

Chunky knits or opulent velvet

Knitted fabrics will always add a little extra cosiness to a space. Consider knitted throws, cushions or even footstools and you are almost guaranteed to want to snuggle down with a mug of hot chocolate next to a roaring fireplace. For a homely country house feel, incorporate some pieces in a classic check fabric. If you want to dip a toe into the popular vintage travel trend, the aged neutral tones of a vintage globe or framed map will mix beautifully with this cosy atmosphere.

There is something lavish and sumptuous about the texture of velvet. Combine this texture with rich jewel tones and you are well on the way to creating a warm and inviting atmosphere within your space. If you want to go one step further, adding a metallic or reflective glass coffee table or rich wooden console table will give your space a touch of the roaring twenties. Keep a well-stocked drinks trolley and your friends may start inviting themselves over for some opulent dinner parties.

Feature fireplaces or candles

As the winds pick up and the cold air begins to bite, what could be better than snuggling up in front of the fire? If you are lucky enough to have an open fireplace or a wood burning stove, a statement fireguard, beautifully designed log basket and other well-chosen accessories will ensure that this gorgeous feature of your home will never go unnoticed.

If you don’t have a fireplace, fear not! You can still achieve a warm and welcoming atmosphere that will have you looking forward to getting home after a long day by placing a variety of candles carefully around your space. Here you have the opportunity to invest in a few statement candlesticks in addition to being able to experiment with a variety of scents. There is a reason why many people set out some freshly baked goods when they are trying to sell their homes - scents can make such a big difference to the overall atmosphere of a space. Look for rich vanilla, sandalwood and amber scents for a decadent and warming feel; alternatively, fresh pine and eucalyptus are fresh and relaxing.
