When those gloomy days arrive and the leaves start to fall, it is time to cozy up inside and bring the beautiful autumn colour palette into your home. It is easy to add the right décor elements to your dining or coffee table, fireplace mantle or porch.
Put Some Pumpkins on Display
Pumpkins are a no-brainer and an easy and sustainable way to decorate your home. A basket with some decorative pumpkins instantly turns your kitchen, living room or bedroom into a beautiful autumn retreat.
There is no need to overdo it: you can place a couple of small pumpkins (we love white and green shades this year) to achieve a big effect.
Add Autumn Accent Colours
If you are not a big fan of pumpkins moving into your house, don’t worry. Pumpkins are not the only way to add some autumn joy. Work with classic autumn colours – orange, dark green, brown, rust, red. Simple accessories such as napkins, a cute flower bouquet or pillows are an easy solution to change up your colour palette.
Soft Colour Palettes
If you aim for even less “cliché”, we have another idea for you. Autumn is the time when we slow down and we spend more time inside. This slowing down can be reflected in a subtle colour palette and simple accessories: muted or neutral colours and simple lines. And if you want to mix and match with the above-mentioned autumn colours, you can easily do that as well. Add some dried florals or other botanicals to refer to nature taking a break.
Baskets to Display your Autumn Finds
Small woven baskets bring the autumn farmers’ markets into your home. At the same time, they are perfect to display your favourite autumn finds.
Light some candles and cozy up in your favourite blanket – if not now, then when?
Coffee Table Accessories
A tray for your coffee, book and cute accessories is an easy way to add some autumn details to your coffee table.
If you are not a big fan of the omnipresent pine and pumpkin spice scents, go for something subtle like bergamot-lavender.
Candlelight dinners are always a good idea. But they are particularly enjoyable when the sun sets much earlier. Head outside in your garden or for a walk and see what you can take as inspiration for your dinner table. We used some rose hips, fir cones, walnuts, vine leaves and seasonal flowers from the garden.
