4 Easy Ways to Transition Your Home From Summer to Autumn
The nights are drawing in and there’s a crisp coolness in the air, which can only mean one thing; autumn has arrived! And we’re not complaining. As much as we love the summer sunshine, we’re ready to dig out the jumpers and boots and embrace the changing landscape. But why should we restrict the seasonal changes to outside the home? We show you 4 easy ways to transition your home into autumn and keep up with the changing seasons…
Warm Up Your Textiles
It’s time to switch out your white, summer bed sheets and replace them with something a little more snug. Think orange, brown, and beige tones to help warm up the space and inject an autumnal vibe. Try changing up your cushions too and replacing them with colours and patterns that feel a little more cosy.
Switch Out Accessories
Try playing around with accessories and swapping cooler colours for warmer tones. Instead of white or pastel coloured ceramics, try adding some terracotta or warm-toned pieces. You could also consider adding extra textiles such as blankets and throws to beds and sofas, or thrown over the arm of a chair to create an instant cosiness.
Choose Softer Lighting
We may not be ready for an open fire yet, but it doesn’t mean that we can’t embrace the gentle ambience a fire has to offer in the colder months. Try turning off the main beam in your living space and adding a few lamps to ‘cosy’ it up. Or light a few candles around the room to create an instant, autumnal vibe.
Top tip: Choose candles with earthy scents such as sandalwood, cinnamon and cedar to create the perfect seasonal atmosphere.
Add Autumn Foliage
Out with the yellow, pink and purple summer bouquets! It’s time to get creative with some autumnal foliage. Head in to your garden to see what you can find. Think unusual sticks, pine cones and reddish, orange leaves. If you’re feeling crafty, try spray painting some sticks gold to add a little interest to your display!
We hope we’ve inspired you to have a think about how you can inject a few seasonal changes into your home. It doesn’t take much to bring it right up to date and create that cosy vibe that we’ll all be grateful for in this cooler weather. Have fun!
