06 Oct Shades of Autumn
Whilst every season has its signature colour palette, Autumn is especially known for its beautiful, bold and saturated colours. Inspired by the turning of leaves, three main colours dominate the autumn colour palette; orange, dark brown and cream. Such colours can transfer wonderfully into an interior space. For example; walls can be painted a neutral cream colour and orange and dark brown can be integrated through accents and accessories. Or instead if you are feeling brave, an accent wall in a bold orange tone can be applied and combined with dark wooden furniture.
“Autumn is a second spring when every leaf is a flower.” ― Albert Camus
If painting walls is not your preference, an alternative is to add furniture with natural coloured wood textures and varnishes. This aligns nicely with the autumn look and complements the colours perfectly. Combined with an open fire, wooden textures and an autumnal-inspired colour scheme can create a cozy and inviting space.
Autumn seems like a season that urges us to slow down and enjoy nature’s spectacular show. It is a great season and perfect time of year, to take some time to be inspired and consider what needs a colour ‘refresh’ around the home.
Floral arrangements, rugs, cushions, curtains are just some of the subtle ways that autumn colours can be integrated into your space. However, it is important to note that autumn colours are definitely not limited to the season and can work in the home all year round. The weather might be getting cooler, but that doesn’t mean your home must; why don’t you try to integrate some autumn colours into your space!
