Our top autumn home style tips
We’ve pulled together some of our favourite autumn decorations to help you spruce up your home this season. Why not follow our style tips and create your very own cosy haven to escape the chilly days and nights?
Create a snuggle corner
We love the idea of creating an area to snuggle up, read a good book and maybe enjoy a glass of wine. Choose somewhere comfortable to sit in, such as an armchair or bean bag, and create a special haven that you can enjoy. Throw down a cushion or two over your cosy corner and drape a colourful blanket over it to use when it gets really chilly. You’ll also want to find something to place your drink or snacks on. That way, you won’t even need to get up! Our Plant Table is the perfect accessory to perch your drink among some gorgeous greenery.
Cosy up your sofa this autumn
Making your sofa as comfortable as possible is the best way to make use of your space this season – perfect to embrace those autumn evenings. For an instant style refresh, add a throw to cosy up your sofa. Our favourite is the Spice Big Waffle Throw from the Secret Linen Store. Lovingly crafted in Portugal using 100% cotton yarns, this beautifully soft throw is everything you need to wrap up warm on a cold day. Creating a cosy sofa is the perfect way tostyle your home this autumn.
Don’t forget to pop on your softest, cosiest PJs before settling down with your favourite film. Pure bliss!
Go crazy with scatter cushions
We love scatter cushions! Nothing sets an autumnal scene better. They’re also a great way to accommodate guests, which is super handy if your home lacks space.
Grab a few scatter cushions in your favourite colour and pop them on the sofa in your living room. Orange, brown, burnt reds and teals are the perfect autumn shades, but you can opt for anything that suits your living space. We particularly love the gorgeous cushions from Rhoom. In a variety of shades, they’re a great way to refresh your home this season. The rich teal Eden cushion and burnt orange rectangular cushion complement each other so well and are just as comfy as they are stylish.
Add autumn style by incorporating metallics
An easy way to style your home this autumn is by introducing metallics. Copper and gold are this season’s colours of choice, and adding a pop of metallic colour will add natural warmth to a room.
Our selection of copper pots with living greenery couldn’t be easier to breathe new life into a space. One of our favourite autumn houseplants is our Succulent Trio House, which comes with three gorgeous succulents in a stylish black metal house. They’re fresh and chic – perfect for adding a striking feature to your home this autumn.
The Copper House Gang is another fabulous way to bring some green style with a metallic twist to your living space. We just love the look of the greenery against the copper pots – don’t they just scream ‘autumn’?!
Incorporate nature into your living space
Did you know that nature-inspired interiors are one of the most popular style trends this season? Introduce nature to your living space by adding fabulous autumn plants with our Succulent Plant Gang. This easy-care bundle only needs a little TLC to thrive but is a great way to update your space this autumn with minimal effort.
One of our other top tips is to group a selection of potted plants together to breathe some life into a room this season. You can create many different heights with our Marble Plant Stands – available in tall or short. You’ll also find them potted with ready-made plants to make life easier for you. Discover the full plant stand collection here.
Accessorise with sustainable mango wood
Autumn is an excellent time to make the most of the gorgeous sustainable materials available. The copper and mango wood plant table from our homeware collection is the ideal solution to cosy up a corner. Made from sustainable mango wood, copper and black metal, this gorgeous plant table will effortlessly add some style to your interior space. Pop a plant or two on there, and you’ve effortlessly styled a space. You can also use it all year round by switching your chosen autumn indoor plants with summer-loving botanicals when the seasons change. You can learn more about the perfect summer plants and how to care for them over on our blog.
Our mango wood coasters are another gorgeous sustainable addition to style your home this autumn. We love them stacked on a coffee table alongside a decorative gin bottle. Gin bottles look too good to be put away in the cupboard, so why not style up a table with a plant, coasters and gin?
Using mango wood to make homewares means the wood can continue to be useful after the tree has become too tall to harvest. The mango farmers are able to plant new trees in place of the old ones. They can also receive additional income from the wood that they sell. Mango wood is incredibly hard-wearing and water-resistant, meaning you can rest assured it will continue to protect and last for years to come.
Add some warmth with neutrals
Our sustainable cotton macrame hangers and almond pots are the perfect way to hang your plants and uplift a space with neutral colours. Hanging plants are a great way to inject life into a space without taking up too much room.
For an authentic autumn look, we just love the leafy colours seen in our range of Crotons in our signature almond or charcoal grey pots. We have so many to choose from – simply type ‘Croton’ into the search bar on our website to see what we have available.
Finish with colours and textures to add perfect style to your home this autumn
Adding textures and colours is the easiest way to refresh your home this autumn. Introducing patterned plants really will bring the outdoors into your room. The Calathea has gorgeous red and green leaves that blend seamlessly with an autumnal interior scheme. Or add a golden touch to your home with the beautiful Croton.
We also think this duo with the patterned Satin Pothos is a stunning addition to revive a space. The stunning marble pots complement the plants perfectly.
We hope we’ve shown you just how easy autumn home styling can be. We’d love to see how you’ve transformed your living spaces this autumn. Email your snaps to us at [email protected] for the chance to be featured on our social media pages.
