Get cosy this Autumn with the hottest looks as they go from the catwalk to your home
The hottest colours this autumn are burnt orange, warm copper and smooth latte in styles including ethnic prints, florals, geometrics and natural wood.
Blinds and Curtains
One of the easiest ways to give your home decor an instant autumnal feel is with curtains or blinds. There is a wide array of sophisticated fabrics available in vibrant colours and graphic patterns, as well as designs perfect for ‘feature’ windows. Stylised floral designs, oriental patterns and smart textured plains are great choices in soft, subtle neutrals through to vibrant signature colours. These coordinate wonderfully with oriental styled interiors as well as eclectic and quirky British decor and are perfect for creating a cosy autumnal feel to your interior.

Another easy and quick update is to add a signature accent chair. Also known as occasional chairs, feature chairs or even love seats, accent chairs are usually standalone pieces or bought as a pair to compliment a room’s décor. Used in this context, the word accent itself means to stress or emphasise and this is exactly what this chair should do! A well-placed accent chair can add personality as well as practicality to any home, and can be placed in the living room, the hallway, the bedroom or even the bathroom.

If you want to make a more long term update to your home, wallpapering a feature wall is a good option. As with blinds and curtains choose a strong pattern incorporating hues of copper or orange. A metallic wallpaper featuring copper elements is a great choice. Also brick effect wallpapers have a similar effect of creating a very rustic and autumnal feel.

Lighting – Let it Glow!
As the cold nights draw in the opportunity arises to introduce some quirky new lighting. This also has the added bonus of giving your interior a cosy, warm autumnal feel. Choose a light with exposed filament bulbs which provide an inviting and flattering light and with a antique/vintage effect or bronze patina. Here are a few unusual eclectic examples: Industrial Hashtag Light // £65.00 Zenner Copper Pendant light // £69.99 Talisker Decanter Pendant Light // £34.99. All from a selection at MY Furniture.
Finally to finish off the look add a few key accessories such as lots of big chunky knitted products. Think about adding a pouffe, a cosy throw or fluffy cushions as a way of simply updating your space. Sheepskin rug // £39 La Redoute. Chunky knit throw // £23.74 Etsy.
