As the summer draws to an end we welcome in the pretty autumn days that bring with them a change of more than weather and colours – the turning of a season can even have an effect on people’s moods. It is common to make changes to your family home during the autumn to create a cosier sense of style before the colder winter days set in.
Let’s look at some of the most fashionable design ideas for each room that are perfect for the autumn time that follow the theme of “Out of the Woods”:
In order to give your living room a more autumnal look, you can buy some cushion covers to add to your sofa and invest in new curtains. The colour scheme should be autumn-like using rich oranges, yellows, reds and browns as well as neutral hues that represent the “Out of the Woods” décor theme. You can even buy some new photo frames or a rug for under your coffee table.Using natural wooden items is a great way to add to the overall autumnal ambience, too.
If you head to the kitchen next, you will find that one of the best things that you can do to give this room an autumn feel is to add a few glass bowls onto the counter tops and fill them with a mix of big, colourful autumnal leaves andpine cones. This gives your kitchen a natural look and means you don’t have to invest in expensive new equipment to mark the change of the season. You can also add some decorative wall art to liven things up – here, Photowall showcases some fantastic fall-themed pieces, which feature a range of sceneries such as trees, forests, woodlands and flowers in the autumn. These are a wonderful way to change the appearance of any room in your home to give it a more autumn ambience.
If you want to continue the theme throughout your home then don’t forget to make some changes to your bedroom as well. You can add a vase of autumn-time flowers onto your window sill and change the bed covers from your summer sheets to a thicker duvet that features natural patterns and autumn-like colours.
One of the easiest changes that you can make to the exterior of your home to give it a more autumnal feel is to plant some trees that will start to shed their leaves come September, as nothing represents autumn more than the deep reds, bright oranges and pretty yellows that will transform any garden into an autumn paradise. You can also paint your garden bench and the shed to a warmer hue to match their surroundings.
