Uplift your living room with these Autumn colour trends

When the darker nights draw in and garden parties become a thing of the past, it’s time to move indoors and get ready for the cooler seasons.  The start of a new season presents the perfect time to uplift your living room with soft furnishings, lighting, artwork and more, all in this season’s trending colourways.

Inspired by nature

Inspired by nature In the past year we have spent much less time outdoors than usual, so it is not surprising to see more elements of nature represented in our homes.  Earthy tones and stone-inspired neutrals make the perfect base to build on, so consider using these colours for your home styling. You can’t go wrong with using cream or grey as a foundation to your living room – think furniture and wall colours. And if you’re looking to add more colour but aren’t sure where to start, muted peach and greens are a great way to ease yourself in. Colours inspired by nature include creams, stone, olive green, citrus tones and peach. 

Turn up the heat

Evoke feelings of warmth and comfort with dusky pinks, burnt oranges and deep reds. These colours go perfectly together, so consider mixing more than one shade for a cohesive and cosy feel. Add a splash of colour and warmth this season with soft furnishings. Think scatter cushions, blankets and throws in classic Autumn fashion.  Don’t forget the lighting. As the evenings get darker, you’ll want lamps and candles to set the mood. And for an extra nod to trend, switch out your light shades to a dark orange or deep red.

Jewel tones

Jewel tones Who said you need to spend a lot of money to make your home décor luxurious? Bring opulence into your home with rich jewel tones that make you feel like royalty. Emerald green, amethyst purple and sapphire blue are all on-trend this Autumn, so don’t be afraid to incorporate all three into your living room.  Style your way with decorative items like picture frames, artwork and ornaments. And if you’re feeling bold, paint a statement wall in a deep purple or use neutral shades as a backdrop for an emerald sofa.

Mixing trends

Mixing trends When it comes to home styling, there are no rules. Mix this season’s trends to create your own colourway for a look that reflects your personality. Use contrasting colours like burnt orange and green for an eclectic, modern take on home décor, or opt for complementary colours like burnt orange and sapphire blue.  If you’re new to interior design and colour theory, following a neutral palette is a great place to start. Add in a pop of colour and experiment with one other to see what you feel works best.  Our style tip? Muted, earthy tones go great with their brighter counterparts, like olive and emerald green, so try mixing shades of the same colour for a cohesive feel.
