With autumn dawning upon us and the nights closing in, the time has come for a seasonal change in your interior design.
And as we finally begin to host those much-missed dinner parties, birthdays and family occasions, there’s never been a better time to transform your living space into a cosy and stylish haven.
This autumn is set to bring linens back as a classic staple design feature to elevate your home. And an interior design atmosphere that transitions between styles using luxurious and unique key pieces is the goal to every budding interior designer’s heart. Here are some of our top tips in helping you upgrade your home this autumn!
1. Create a mood board
A mood board is a great way to visualise the styles, materials and pieces you envision in your space.
Browse the latest features in home design by first choosing a colour scheme on which to base your board, and don’t be afraid to be bold! Whether it’s summery yellows or popping pinks, a dash of colour will instantly engage the eye.
Struggling for ideas? Search interior design magazines or even seek inspiration from your favourite celebrities to set the tone of your living space – this is a great way to simplify your approach.
Moodboards are a great way to create a cohesive interior design, and through virtual mood boards on sites like Pinterest are perhaps more common these days, a traditional corkboard-and-pins creation can itself be a great feature in your home!
2. Statement furniture
For a less-is-more approach, classic statement pieces are always a great place to start and build around when designing.
Start with the piece your eye is most likely to be drawn to when entering a room – this could be your sofa, dining table or bed. These are crucial in creating your space, as they can be easily stylised and transitioned throughout the seasons to keep up with changing styles.
Great quality furniture will never go out of fashion, and a luxury statement unit from a high-end brand such as SM London is an easy way to create an opulent atmosphere in your home. Transitional furniture is not only a long term investment but a key design feature in any room,
3. Textile Glam
A mixture of different textiles and textures in a room not only gives a homely feel to a room but is a perfect way to incorporate colour into the room – this autumn is set to see burnt orange, reds and neutrals to keep the warmth in those cold winter nights, ensuring an intimate feel to your spaces.
Make your home cosy quickly with a few complimentary textile pieces, such as throws, rugs and cushions. These can give a multidimensional twist to any room, and marry together the rest of your interior design.
These are just three ways to up your interior design game this autumn.
