As Autumn approaches, now is the best time of the year to incorporate earth tone colours into your home decorations! The arrival of cooler temperatures, autumn hues, and nature changing before our eyes is all we need to know that autumn is here again. Adding autumn touches of decor to your home will help you transition into the new season with the excitement of the passing of the year.

Here are just a few of the ways to create a cosy atmosphere throughout your home.

Autumnal colour palette

When the temperatures start to cool, it's more important than ever to make sure your home is a cosy heaven. Switch up your summer blues for autumn reds, golden yellows and earthly browns. By mimicing the colour pallete outside in, bring the spirit of autumn into your home.

Creative Lighting

Along with the change in colours, autumn also brings earlier nights and later mornings, meaning the right lighting is key. Create the perfect homely atmosphere with a warm golden glow.

From ceiling lights to lamps, lighting plays a big part in our home during the autumn and winter months, so why not make a statement with the styles you choose? A badly lit room is nightmare at the best of times let alone in the fluctuating natural light of one of the gloomiest times of year.

With the shorter days, you’ll want to add brighter lighting to your favourite spaces. Lights or lamps with warm light shades on them are the perfect sort of lighting as not only do they give off an ambient glow but they fit in with the autumnal feeling. For example, the images above.

Decorate your walls

Adding a fresh fall wreath to your front door is one of the best ways to welcome guests to your home. It makes a terrific first impression and is a low-cost way to change outdoor home decor with the seasons.

For autumn, go for a wreath full of fall florals like the images below! Whether you buy or DIY, these front door beauties will give your home serious autumn-inspired appeal.

Usually considered to be only a Christmas speciality, wreaths are usually not seen at any other point throughout the year. An Autumn themed wreath would not only be a unique way to decorate the exterior of your home but it would also be a nice way to show off your stylish knowledge to anyone that visits.


Get cosy by the fire

As the weather gets chillier and the days shorter, it’s time to turn your focus to the fireplace. Keeping your fireplace in working condition and your mantle well-styled will allow you to light a match and enjoy a cosy evening at home at the drop of a hat (or a light fall jacket).

A crackling fire naturally draws people to it, so accommodate that with extra seating around your fireplace. For the autumn and winter months, rearrange your furniture to shift your conversation area to the fireplace.

Decorate your fireplace according to this season spirit, so that it stands out by bringing autumnal mantle themes! Themed and colour coordinated mantels will keep you warm, cosy, and inspired—even on the chilliest days.

Nothing makes a living room more intimate than a fireplace. If you’re decorating for autumn, it’s a must! Remember, don’t slack on the firewood – make sure there’s plenty ready for use!
