Living room décor trends for the autumn you can’t afford to ignore

Posted by admin - July 27, 2017 - Articles

With the leaves starting to curl at the edges and the nights beginning to darken, now’s the time to modify our living rooms so they provide cosiness and warmth during the cold winter months.

To help prepare your home for the winter, take a look at the following living room décor trends for the autumn.

Muted colour schemes

Something to look out for this autumn is a muted colour scheme. Add some warmth to all-white spaces, with some darker tones. Bring a ‘late autumnal’ look to your living room to cosy it up for the season ahead by introducing blush, moss, fog, sage and mulberry into the colour scheme.

Introduce velvet to the room

Velvet has to be the autumn’s preferred upholstery. As winter approaches, there’s nothing cosier than the hug of a velvet sofa.

As well as being incredibly soft to touch, velvet possesses a rich and luxurious look, perfect for the colder months.

Inject some vibrancy into your living room this autumn by opting for velvet furnishings of an eye-catching shade. Bright cobalt, tangerine orange, sunshine yellow or even hot pink will cast a striking look in your living room to brighten things up for the winter.

A statement wall and tartan furnishings

Liven up your living room in the autumn by decorating a feature wall with statement wallpaper. Textured designs, vibrant patterns and colourful finishes will bring comfort and warmth to those dark, winter nights.

Tartan check wallpaper never loses its appeal, particularly in the colder seasons of autumn and winter.

Why not sprinkle some additional tartan magic into your living room this autumn with tartan throws, rugs and cushions? – The ideal complements to a tartan-adorned feature wall.

Create a focal point

If your living room doesn’t already have one, now’s the time to create a focal point. A beautiful stone fireplace illuminated with a wood burning stove or an open fire, would make the ideal hub in a living room during the colder seasons.

Bring extra comfort and warmth to a fireplace by placing a cosy rug in front of the fire. Sheepskin accessories are a great choice at this time of year, bringing a touch of luxury into the room.

Autumn flowers and fragrant candles

Brighten your living room up by placing autumnal flowers around the living space. Calla lilies make an excellent choice of flowers to bring some floral splendour to a living room in the autumn. So too do vases, arranged with vibrant roses, shiny berries and miniature squashes.

Place fragrant-smelling candles alongside your autumn flower displays to bring additional visual warmth and scented jubilance to your living room this autumn.

There you have it – a living room geared towards kicking off your shoes and snuggling down to an evening of relaxation during those cold winter evenings.
