The autumn months are the time when we really start to appreciate the comfort of our own home. It is now that we seek warmth and cosiness in preparation for the colder months to come. Today, we’re offering up some seasonal suggestions to help you add a few cosy autumnal touches for warmer and more comfortable homes.

 

Autumnal colours

Introduce autumnal colours into your home interiors to mirror the change in seasons. Use nature for inspiration when it comes to accessorising your living room, and mix earthy tones of chestnut and burnt umber, rusty orange, charcoal and taupe. Don’t shy away from gold and copper when it comes to quirky accessories, as these tones will be a perfect match for the rusty shades.

 

Choose textures

Adding different textured elements can really make your room feel inviting and cosy. Textured linens, chunky knits and accents of copper and wood can be enough to create an instant cosy feeling.

Try adding tactile textures, faux fur and velvet accent cushions to your existing furniture to enhance the autumn vibes and alter the overall style of your room. Our best selling cushion is the Dreamweavers cushion, made from a soft, fleecy material, soft and cosy to touch and perfect to accessorise many different rooms of your house. These cushions work especially great as standout pieces next to a neutral coloured product.

Accessories won't cost you a fortune and are always easy to exchange for cooler shades in the spring and more vibrant ones in the summer.

Cosy up

Create a warmer feel in your home this autumn by layering different elements together. Add a bold patterned rug to a plain carpet and a cosy blanket or throw to your leather sofa. Available to buy in store only, the Striped Faux Fur in Rabbit Alaska throw is made from a medium pile faux fur with a coffee coloured base and a stone stripe, and will make one of the most luxurious accessories for your home.

Soft underfoot

Instead of plain wooden floors, there’s nothing like a bold pattern rug in your room to welcome the autumn. Use carpets and rugs for an instant update and to bring warmth to any room when the temperature drops outside. To add interest and colour to your interiors, check the Louis De Poortere textured woven designs in various colours.

The Fading World Medallion rug in Mineral Black will suit a monochrome taste and is woven on jacquard looms in a combination of pure new wool and cotton chenille. Each beautiful rug has multiple layers of texture, distressed areas and intricate stitching detail to give a true vintage look.

The opulent Gattopardo Bagera rug is part of the Splendore di Venezia Collection, a beautiful high quality collection carefully designed and tailored to your everyday needs in bright colours and shiny yarns

For a more modern look, the Nexus collection from Asiatic Rugs features premium quality hand tufted rugs in precise hand carved geometric designs.

Make the atmosphere more inviting with generously-sized sofas and armchairs that tempt you to sit down, piled high with cushions and throws in chunky weaves and cosy knits. Generous proportions and elegant fabrics ensure our range of handcrafted sofas and chairs are at home in the most elegant of living rooms.
