Autumn is a great season of inspiration for home décor and design. The colors are perfect – plenty of calming, neutral tones that can be used in every room. And autumn also brings to mind the idea of warmth and coziness, concepts that work in every home (and are especially inviting as we enter the cooler months ahead). Read on to bring autumn into your home.
The colors of autumn are perfect and timeless in the kitchen. Consider a subtle, nature inspired pop of color with a mustard or pale green wall. Wood and brick can be used in conjunction to continue the look. And of course seasonal décor is easy to add in a kitchen (fall-inspired kitchen towels or fresh cut, seasonal blooms). Our online kitchen design gallery features some farmhouse-style kitchens that embrace the feeling of autumn.
The rich patinas and colors of hardwood flooring are the perfect complement to the warm colors of autumn. Choose a dark, rich looking wood species or one that looks like it’s been in a farmhouse for decades – you can’t go wrong. A wide-plank style floor will further the homey look of hardwood in your home.
Area rugs are great to feature throughout your home. They warm up wood floors, help with absorbing sound and keep your feet warm on cool mornings. Another great feature of area rugs is the option to change them with the seasons. For autumn and winter, consider a fuzzy, faux sheepskin rug or an oriental carpet.
A final, easy touch of autumn for your home? The simple addition of soft, fuzzy blankets and as many pillows as you can pile up on your sofa or bed. Bring on the texture and warmth!
