From Summer to Autumn in 4 Easy Steps


A change of season is the perfect time to switch up your interiors. As summer makes way for autumn, it’s time to bring those cosy, calming autumn vibes into your home and make it feel warm and welcoming. All it takes is four easy steps.



 TIP 1: Introduce a new colour palette in deep, rich hues.  

Colour is the easiest, most effective way to say ‘Autumn is here’. Draw on the deeper hues of nature to bring a sense of calm to your living space. While summer is light and airy, Autumn is all about deep rich colours such as forest greens, warm ochres and rich timbers. A solid walnut dining table and dining chairs will add warmth to your home Try adding these colours in the form of a throw, a blanket, a vase.

TIP 2: Add layers and storage in your bedroom. 

Swap out your crisp summer linen for sheets in autumnal colours (beige, burnt orange, sage, navy). Keep chunky throws and quilted blankets within reach for added warmth – it’s about layering for comfort and style. A chest of drawers will ensure you have adequate bedroom storage to keep everything neat and tidy.

TIP 3: Change the cushions and throws in your living room. 

For a quick fix, simply swap your lighter, brighter summer cushions on your sofa to ones in deep colours (reds, oranges, yellows) with tactile textures (velvet, boucle, etc.). Mix and match your cushions in different sizes and shapes – experiment until you find a look you love. A chunky throw over your favourite armchair and a rug underneath will add layers of warmth to your space. Perfect for movie night!

TIP 4: Don’t over-complicate it. 

When it comes to Scandi style, remember the adage ‘less is more’. Make sure you feel at home in your own home! Opt for relaxed comfort. When choosing decor, choose items in honest, natural materials that speak of their inherent beauty. A sculptural vase with clean lines, logs of wood in your fireplace, or autumn foliage on your mantle can do the trick.
