Change with the seasons - Transitioning your home from summer to autumn

Just as you transition your wardrobe from summer to autumn, you should also transition your home to reflect the change in season. In this article we will teach you a few simple tricks that can be used to effectively prepare your home for the cooler months ahead.

Colour schemes

If you are planning on re-decorating then you may want to consider going for a traditional autumn and winter colour palette. Shades like gold, purple, mocha brown and deep red are great for adding warmth to your home and making it feel a little cosier in the winter months. However there is no need to completely re-decorate your home for the autumn if you do not have the time or budget, by simply making a few alterations to your home accessories and furniture, you can achieve the perfect autumn / winter look.

Autumn accessories

A great way to transition your home from the summer to the autumn is to switch your current bed linen and accent cushions, for something more appropriate to the season. Choose bedding in the colours mentioned in the previous paragraph and make use of cushions with autumn-themed prints like leaves. Seeing as the temperatures will drop in the autumn, you may want to make use of extra blankets and throws in your bedroom and living room. For the ultimate luxury, purchase blankets made from soft cashmere.

 

Home fragrances

 

Whereas in the spring and summer, most homeowners tend to want to fill their homes with fresh, fruity and floral scents, in the autumn we tend to want something a little warming and whimsical.  Choose candles and incense sticks with spicy cinnamon scents, or if you are not fond of cinnamon, opt for a softer scent like vanilla. Place your candles inside vintage-inspired lanterns for a stylish authentic look. Alternatively, if you have the time, why not do a little baking? There is nothing quite like entering a home filled with the smell of freshly baked bread or cookies.

 

Natural woodland ornaments and displays

 

Rather than splashing out on brand new ornaments for your home, why not consider getting a little creative? There are so many wonderful natural ornaments you can find outside, from pine cones to twigs and sticks. If you are open-minded you may be able to create a truly wonderful display that brings the outside, indoors for the autumn and winter seasons. If you do not have a console table or sideboard to display your ornaments on, then this site has a huge variety to select from.

 

Autumn and winter lighting

 

Lighting plays a huge role in setting the atmosphere of a room. If you want your living room to feel warm and cosy for the autumn and winter, then why not hang some pretty fairy lights over your fireplace? Fairy lights do not have to be tacky or ‘Christmassy.’ You can purchase stunning fairy lights featuring white LEDs that are suitable for using all year round.

 

Re-arranging furniture

 

If you have a beautiful fireplace in your living room, then you should really make use of it! Position your furniture around the fireplace and transform it into the focal point of your room.  Alternatively, if you do not want to re-position your furniture, you could always place a beautiful rug in front of the fire, where people can sit if they want to warm up on a chilly night. Decorate your fireplace with ornaments and vases to draw people’s attention to it and make the most of its beauty.

 

Conclusion

 

Transitioning your home from summer to autumn isn’t a huge task, nor does it have to be expensive. By making a few simple changes to your existing home accessories you can achieve the perfect autumn and winter look in your home.
