Autumn Home Decorating

Autumn Home Decor

With the seasons changing it’s the perfect time to switch up your interior decorating – especially when the air is a little colder and you need to cosy up inside.

When the leaves turn yellow and the temperature drops, we love to find new ways to bring in the autumn ambience into our homes. Today we’re sharing our favourite ways to take your home from summer to autumn without any hassle.

Time for a colour change

Colour sets the mood in a space. Each and every colour you use evokes emotions like green and blue has a calming effect, pink is used for femininity and so forth. The tones and shades also play a role in the ambience of the room, pastel shades are softer and light whereas darker, fuller hues offer a more intense dose of colour.

Introducing a new colour palette is one of the easiest ways to bring in the Autumn ambience in your room. Autumn colours we love are hues of brown, orange, yellow and even purple – paired with light white hues makes for the perfect contrast.

You can incorporate these colours in so many ways; from being bold and having an accent wall to more subtle touches through scatters or throws.

Layer it up

Now is the time for those chunky knit throws, plump scatters and velvet blankets! Whether it’s on your sofa, bed or even your armchair draping a throw blanket can make your home feel cosier. 

Seeing all the warm elements around your home will warm up the interior and when you are really cold, you’ll be glad you’ve got a cosy throw within arm’s reach.

We have plush throws available in various colours to suit your interior, shop now.

Fragrance is key

When creating an Autumn home interior we often forget about our sense of smell. However, it plays a big part in bringing in the autumn ambience. Think of fragrances that let you think of autumn like cinnamon, ginger, espresso, chocolate.

We love scented candles at this time of year, particularly anything with wood or earthy note. And who can resist the smell of leather?!

Embrace heavier fabrics and textures

Changing up your scatter cushions when the season change is an effortless way to style your home – and it’s often a treat to yourself to get some new cushions. View our collection of warming scatter cushions here.

Get a cozy seat

There are plenty of autumn decorating ideas to indulge in this season. Start off with finding the perfect seat to snuggle up. A plush Chesterfield sofa or Wingback Chair is sure to provide a cosy relaxing space and add a luxurious essence to your space.

Enjoy this Autumn with these wonderful decor tips and ideas.  Bring warmth into your home before it is bustling with activity for the winter holiday! Share your ideas on decorating for the Autumn season, with us… We’d love to hear them!

Classic Blue can also be incorporated by creating an accent wall in your living space. Depending on the room type and size you can use blue as the main colour or just an accent.

Hue knew?

Colourful interior decor for your home

Changing the color of your interior decor can not only have an impact on how you feel about your home, but on its value, too. Choosing a combination of hues that’s beautiful and pleasing to the eye is an entirely different task altogether. If you’ve been stymied about what home decor colors to choose, consider some of our colour combinations.


We now everyone has a favourite colour, whether it’s nature-inspired blue, passionate purple or vibrant yellow. Furthermore, it is most likely that you have a tonal preference too. This can include anything from brights to muted or pastel hues. Whatever your interior style is, here are some ways in which you can use different colours.

Firstly, we suggest you use the colour blue. Blue ranks so high as a favorite colour that you won’t go wrong if you use this versatile colour. Furthermore, blue enhances the peaceful ambience of your space to create the perfect place to relax. A blue chesterfield is an excellent way to incorporate blue to your space. Therefore, we recommend a Mozart Chesterfield in our Signature Oceano Blue leather. Notably, when you combine blue with another colour it creates a more creative effect.


We also suggest different hues of yellow. Yellow is associated with happiness and positivity and will be a delightful colour to use for your home’s interior as it will add to you joyful ambience. However, using too much yellow in your interior is not a good idea. Therefore, rather use smaller pieces of furniture or small decorating items that will make the space feel fresh and inviting. 


Perhaps best known as the colour of royalty, purple is truly significant! Purple can be a daunting colour to consider however, in all its hues it can be lovely and even sophisticated. Adding pops of purple hues in the form of furniture is a wonderful idea, we suggest a Born Wingback in our Royale Purple leather. Another way to add hues of purple is by using rugs, it can be used around the house without any effort.


Want a colourful, happy and full of energy space? We recommend using green for your home decor. The hue is the colour of live as it is associated with growth and rejuvenation. Incorporate the positive energy from green in your home with a Born Signature Emerald Green Leather sofa.


Color choices are highly subjective, and when it comes to decorating your home, you need to do what feels right to you. Similarly, it is just as important to choose the right colour combinations. As we discussed a peace enhancing blue, vibrant yellow, royal purple and lushes green we suggest that you pair these colours together. A space with natural hues of blue paired with yellow or green is a wonderful combination just as rich purple and green hues work perfectly together. Have a look at some of our colourful inspirations.


Whatever colour combination you choose for your home’s interior make sure that it will compliment your space and showcase your personality! As interior designer Nate Berkus stated “Your home should tell the story of who you are and be a collection of things you love.
