Autumn style for your home

There's lots to enjoy about autumn before the Christmas chaos sets in. Yes, Halloween is a big focus of the season but it seems a shame to decorate your home for just this one night of activity when anything spooky is outdated come November 2nd.

So we've compiled some inspiration for decoration that more widely celebrates the fall season, to bring in the beautiful colours and textures we're enjoying outside.

Hang a natural wreath

Wreaths may be a more of a Christmas tradition, but autumn ones look equally great on your front door and make a stylish entrance. There are lots of natural foliage you can entwine together to make one, and designs can range natural mono shades to something with more colour.

This great article by interiors stylist and blogger Kerry Lockwood has some great ideas for different styles of autumn wreaths to inspire you.

Add in autumnal colours

Take a colour cue from the changing shades in the trees and landscape outside - palettes of golden ochre, pumpkin orange, russet red and deep chestnut brown.

You could bring these colours in to your interior temporarily, by changing soft furnishings and accessories. Celebrate natural brown shades by creating a display of small brown glass bottles, or make a larger brown demijohn a focal point to hold some autumnal foliage.

If you're looking for a more permanent style update, you could use the autumnal palette to inspire a new interior scheme as an accent colour used on walls or with key pieces of furniture. Pumpkin orange or russet red looks great contrasted against dark grey walls, and neutral furniture can be pepped up by some ochre yellow paint.

Layer on soft and chunky textures

The temperatures are dropping now and fires are being lit, so add lots of layers to your chairs, sofas and beds with big cable knit blankets and sheepskins, of course!

If the blankets feature autumnal golden and russet shades then all the better. They look great folded and piled on top of a deep brown leather trunk or wooden blanket box.

Light candles to add ambience

The clocks have gone back, which means there's going to be a lot more dark hours coming up so make your indoors a cosy place to retreat to by adding lots of candles or warm fairy lights. Particularly great when added to your favourite reading nook!

Bring seasonal fruits and foliage inside

There is lots of decorative materials to be harvested from outdoors at this time of year. Autumn sees an abundance of apples, which are great to have for table displays, as are pumpkins and mini gourds.

You can also use pine cones and acorns to make natural garlands to string across some plain walls. Or take some nice crisp leaves collected from the falling trees and simply tape them to the walls for something super quick!
