There’s a slight chill in the air and autumn is definitely on its way, but that doesn’t mean you have to be cold in your home! Whether your apartment is the epitome of minimalist chic or a period house in the country, anyone can add autumnal hues to their home to create a warm, cosy and inviting feel.
Traditional autumn shades are those which can be found in nature at this time of year – brick red, terracotta, deep peach, orange and burnt umber. Even chocolate brown and bright reds work well and all help to give your home that cosy ambience you’ve been trying to create ever since you moved in! For a really snuggly feel, choose a wool rug which combines several colours, such as a striped wool rug in terracotta, gold and wine, sure to make your living room feel warm and inviting. If you’re looking to keep your sleek, minimalist style whilst injecting a pop of colour into your living room, a round shaggy rug in bold terracotta is the perfect complement to a chocolate brown leather sofa and neutral décor.
If your Victorian mansion is lacking its own Mr Darcy, why not make your home more welcoming with a traditional style rug or runner in warm autumn colours? Persian runners are hand-knotted using an age-old method and dyed with vibrant vegetable dyes, then hung out to fade slightly in the sun. A terracotta and navy Persian rug will ensure your living room is the perfect spot to relax, whilst adding a traditional runner in shades of red and brown to your hallway makes it almost impossible for anyone to resist your dinner invitation.
Deep brown and orange rugs aren’t just for the living room – spice up your bedroom with a retro red and terracotta blockade design polypropylene rug, or add a touch of opulence with a Gothic scroll design rug in vibrant orange and deep chocolate brown. For a touch of the wild-west, Navajo patch rugs with natural hues such as brick-red and terracotta warm up any space, and combined with a funky patchwork throw they’re the perfect way to keep cosy as the nights grow chillier.
Whilst summer isn’t over just yet, it won’t be long before the nights start to grown longer and darker, so make sure your home is looking lush by the time autumn arrives and prepare to enjoy your cosy new space!
