Calm Your Space With Autumn Colour

Posted by maddisonamyrawson on Feb 19, '16

Refreshing your decor with the season can seem difficult, especially when you don't feel like a full makeover. In reality, creating autumnal cosiness in your home can be as simple as adding a splash of the right colour. In the right hue, throw rugs, cushions and linen are all easy and cost effective tools to bring autumn inside.

Below we've pulled together some autumn inspired colour palletes that can help you choose the right accent pieces to that will add seasonal flair to your home.

Autumn doesn't have to be all about oranges and yellows. Muted blues, purples and greens can be perfectly paired with a more lively pink or red to create a calming, yet cheerful atmosphere in your bedroom or lounge. Offset deeper coloured furniture with a bright, warm coloured throw to achieve the right look. 
Deeper hues have a soothing effect that really creates that cosy atmosphere. Accented with a pop of red or a lighter green; greys, mauves, maroons and earthy browns, make a space feel snug, without feeling drab. Bedding with warm accents (reds, pinks or oranges) or adding bright cushions to cooler coloured furniture are simple ways to achieve this look.

For those who love a bright space you can still up the cosiness by opting for warm colours instead of cool blues and greens. Deep reds and oranges are great for creating a cheerful space that is still relaxed and comforting. Accent these with warm greys and browns to anchor the space and tone down colour intensity to a point that feels comfortable.


Overall, colour is about mood, so give yourself the space to play with colour until you achieve what feels most comfortable to you. Change up your accent pieces and experiment with these colours until your space seems snug.
