4 Easy Ways

To Transition

Your Decor

From Summer

To Autumn

Is your interior having a mid-season crisis? Don't fret just yet, just follow these four simple steps...

Is it just us or does Autumn always seem to come along really fast? Going from garden parties to pumpkin carving can seem a little unnatural but September gives us a small transitional period to prepare for the cooler months ahead. When it comes to your home, the Summer to Autumn period can be a struggle for those who love to decorate around the seasons but easing from one to the other is actually a lot easier than you think!

Similarly to how we adjust our wardrobes it’s often about layering and switching up colours (namely neutral colourways) to create warmth and a sense of cosiness. Simple things such as a chunky throw or an extra rug can really make a difference...

INCORPORATE (AND LAYER) TEXTURES

Introducing textures is one of the easiest ways to transform a room. They add visual weight and will bring depth and dimension to your space. The key to incorporating texture through Autumn is to layer key pieces. Try not to overcrowd or overload with too many similar colours or elements. Try swapping out your cushion covers and introducing a chunky throw to drastically change the look of your sofa and surrounding living areas.

Using textured furnishings especially brings an incredible sense of warmth into the home. Why not try a textured blind fabric to dress your windows? Textured blinds add style and character to any window in the home and look fantastic all year round.

BRING THE OUTSIDE IN

A creative way to merge the two seasons is by bringing a little of the outside, inside! Sunflowers are a great example; their vivid petals bring the summer cheer indoors whilst also introducing those iconic autumnal hues like ambers and browns. As Autumn arrives, opt for dried flowers for a rustic feel. Another way is to stock up your fruit bowl with some seasonal favourites for a stunning table centrepiece. Try grapes, apples, figs, pears and plums and as autumn draws nearer, toss in some pumpkins for that true autumnal look.

Bringing nature indoors is brilliantly inexpensive. When you next take an evening stroll simply collect whatever branches, twigs and pine cones you can find along the way. Throw these into a vase or bowl and you've got yourself a beautiful centrepiece. For a more luxurious look, spray your outdoor finds with a shimmery/metallic paint and leave to dry.

USE SOFT WHITES

Whilst bright whites are a firm favourite through the summer months they are also essential throughout Autumn in helping to balance the darker tones autumnal styling brings. Rich hues such as ambers and berries can be overwhelming and can appear flat without contrast. White walls especially serve as a stunning backdrop for darker autumnal elements whilst keeping the rooms bright and cheery with the last of the summer sun. It also brings with it a calming feel, so teaming a neutral colour palette complete with new textures and soft lighting helps to really set the tone for that warm and cosy autumnal feel.

PREPARE FOR THE COLD

Prepping your home for the cold is super important this time of year. Clearing out your fireplaces and stocking up on a little firewood is a good way to give yourself a head start! Another way is to consider insulating with cellular blinds. Cellular blinds help by providing a powerful extra layer of defence against any draft coming into the home, therefore slowing down the process of heat loss through your windows. The air cavity created by the cell creates a clever and effective additional insulation factor for cellular fabrics, insulating your home from the outside elements.

This one is for you, candle lovers! Whether you like sweet, fruity or spicy, there’s some incredible scents you can get your hands on that will take your autumnal aesthetic to the next level.

Scents within the home can change its atmosphere instantly but it’s choosing the right one for the season that can be the tricky bit (‘fresh linen’ doesn’t exactly scream Autumn). Our recommendations are fig, sandalwood, sage, pomegranate, cinnamon, pumpkin, patchouli to name a few!
