4 autumnal colour palettes to spruce up your home
The new season sees pastel pinks and yellows (think rhubarb and custard flavoured penny sweets) feature as an on-trend colour scheme to introduce a softer style to any living space. As the nights draw in and the weather gets colder, you’ll be glad to have comfortable furnishings to keep you warm so make sure to accentuate a neutral white or grey base with soft linen throws and cushions in shades of rose and lemon. This look goes superbly with light coloured wood furniture - and why not add a vase or two of dried flowers to be especially on trend?

Scandinavia is generally the global go-to for design standards, and this year is no different with a dark navy Nordic aesthetic at the top of many must-have interior design lists this season. For those unafraid to make a bold statement, a moody navy blue wall combined with dark wood furniture such as mahogany or walnut (a perfect example is our Mayan Walnut range) makes a wonderful look for a living room or bedroom. Lighten it up with touches of white or cream accessories, picture frames or lamps for a more homely feel.

Eco-friendly interior design is huge at the moment, and one way to decrease your carbon footprint is by filling your home with beautiful recycled wood furniture and house plants. Dark green patterned plants and small succulents look especially good with a contrasting white and black colour scheme, providing a modern, airy studio feel. This style will also appear to increase the size of any room with the amount of light it creates; perfect for smaller, cramped spaces. Add a monochrome patterned wall print or rug for a stylish finish.

What could be more seasonal than autumn-rich shades of olive green, mustard, terracotta and - tipped to be the “new neutral” - sage? To achieve the look of Boston in the fall in your own home, match any of these colours with medium-tone woods (try our Mobel Oak range) and off-white features to prevent your room from looking overly dark. Stay even more on trend by adding burnt orange and mustard yellow furnishings for a 70s feel, a look that’s been very much back in vogue this year. Whether you want to bring back flares or just add some warmth to your home, this colour palette is a definite highlight this season.
