Autumn Opulence - Restyle your Home this Season
Autumn is in full bloom (well, lack thereof), and the mood in our homes is shifting. Say goodbye to the bright and breezy interiors, farewell to the golden hour sun beaming through our windows and cheerio to the neutral décor, because this Autumn we’re switching things up!
Green may be fading from our trees, but it has found a new home on our walls. The conventional Autumn colour scheme of varying oranges and reds has passed – making way for cooler colours. Forest green, deep blues and lavish plum shades may be a daring choice, but we assure you that once you try them, you’ll never go back. Top tip: use a darker shade (such as those mentioned above) on your most prominent wall within a room. A statement wall is a great way to pull focus and create a far cosier atmosphere in your home. And contrary to popular belief, darker walls don’t make the space feel small, they allow the lighter tones to shine through – creating a spacious feeling.
However, if you’re a fan of the warmer hints, don’t worry ! The conventional tones are still perfect for decorating your space. Burnt orange is a great complementary colour against green, so get creative with your décor. Decorative ornaments, throws, blankets and pillows can all be incorporated into your room easily, bringing with them the warm tones to capture the cosy essences. If you’ve opted for a bold, blue wall, a softer yellow makes for the perfect complementary colour. And for blush walls, it’s all about the metallics. Gold, brass, bronze – any warm-toned metal will make the difference.
One way of incorporating metallic tones into your colour scheme is through lighting. For instance, take a look at our Benson Curved Floor Lamp. The luxurious copper floor lamp has a rich warmth and a subtle glimmer – complementing the cool tones spectacularly.
Just like colour, texture is an important part of transforming your home this Autumn. More importantly, layering textures. Soft, faux fur blankets, chunky knit throws and velvet hints are all great accents to your eclectic décor, and incorporating these into your room can take your home interiors to new heights.
Textured lighting is a huge trend at the moment, with macrame, ratan and jute all dominating the interior décor scene. But eclectic décor requires a much more luxurious touch, and that’s why velvet is the ideal choice. Soft velvet details add a glamorous hint to your interiors, with a light shimmer and comfortable touch bound to add a relaxed aesthetic to your home.
Our Taylor Velvet Lamp in ochre and brass is the perfect mood light for your room. The yellow lampshade contrasts the cool-toned colours, adding a vibrant pop of colour to any space. The warm light within illuminates the room with a soft, gentle glow – ideal for your living room side tables or bedside tables while winding down with your favourite book at the end of the day. Even better, you can also pair this colourful table lamp with the matching ceiling light shade!
