Autumn has landed and with the weather slowly getting colder, it’s time to add some autumnal touches to your bedroom to ensure you have a cosy, warm space to hibernate. From the classic autumnal colour palette, to Halloween inspired decorative touches, there are some really fun and exciting ways to add a touch of autumn to your décor, without having to make drastic changes to the overall look of the room. Whether you’re reviving your own bedroom or making a cosy space for your guests to stay, the following tips will help you create the perfect autumnal theme for you home.
The Classic Colour Palette
Choosing classic autumnal colours is instantly going to add a seasonal feel to your décor. There’s something about the burnt oranges, deep reds and browns that shouts autumn and creates a warm feel straight away. Within the classic autumnal colour palette, you can expect to see rusty oranges, soft yellows, vanilla, oatmeal and chestnut shades, which all complement each other beautifully when added to any décor. The perfect thing about the autumnal tones is that you can mix and match, playing around with the colours that work best for you and experimenting with different shades.
Enhance the Flooring
If the bedroom that you want to add an autumnal touch to has wooden flooring, then you have a great advantage by enhancing the flooring and creating a much darker look. By varnishing and staining your wooden flooring, you can create a really dramatic look that stands out and adds character to the room. Check online merchants such as Milford’s to see which stains and varnishes are going to work best for your flooring, then you can get to work on creating a stunning new look for that room. You can then enhance the look of the flooring even further by introducing a rug, preferably in an autumnal colour, to finish off the look perfectly.
Warm and Cosy Additions
The most important feature in any autumnal themed room is warm and cosy accessories. From the snuggly blankets at the bottom of the bed, to the plush scatter cushions, you can create the perfect hibernation spot with some lovely soft additions. By adding some new items to the room, you can instantly create a space that looks cosy and inviting, as well as adding to the overall look and character of the room. You can find a beautiful selection of autumnal cushions and throws in store at places such as Primark, or online at retailers like Matalan. Remember to keep the autumnal colours strong throughout your decorative additions, as you want to keep the theme consistent and ensure your room feels and looks autumnal.
Whilst many people may only celebrate Halloween on the 31st, lots of other people like to put a spooky stamp on their interior’s way before then. September 23rd marks the first official day of autumn, which for many people is the first acceptable day to start decorating for Halloween. Introducing some stylish yet subtle Halloween touches, such as cute pumpkins, spooky wreaths and even some Halloween inspired candles will really help to enhance the autumnal feel, without going too overboard.
