The nights are drawing in and talk on the TV has turned to Christmas, which can only mean one thing: autumn has arrived! Make your house cosy for the cooler seasons ahead with out top 5 autumn home decor trends for this year.

  1. Travel

The pandemic has meant that many of us have had to cancel our 2020 travel plans. Our yearning for a holiday abroad may be one of the reasons why this season’s top homeware style influence is travel. Think animal print cushions, unusual statement pieces of pottery and…well, anything that looks like you could pick it up in a market on the other side of the world!

  1. Country cosy

This one is popular every year and with good reason. The days are becoming shorter and the temperatures are plummeting. The urge to snuggle up under a fleecy blanket in front of the fire is irresistible.

If you want to make your house feel super cosy, add a few throws to your sofa and some textured scatter cushions. – velvet or wool work really well at this time of year.

Bringing natural materials like wood into your home is also a really good way to make your house feel warm and welcoming. If you have a fireplace, an oak beam is the ideal finishing touch (our walnut and jacobean finishes complement this look perfectly). Alternatively, you could add some oak floating shelves into your living space and adorn them with some indoor plants or carefully placed candles.

  1. It’s all about bouclé…

French for curly, ‘bouclé’ is the top texture trend for autumn 2020. Cosy, soft and super welcoming, bouclé is this season’s must-have fabric. Pick up some new cushion covers in this fabric to give your room an instant cosy feel or, if you really want to push the boat out, add a bouclé chair or two to your living space.

  1. Warm autumnal colours

Achieve this look by painting your room in cinnamon and caramel hues to match the changing seasons outside. Using these colours in your home will add a real feeling of warmth to any space.

If repainting your home sounds like too much effort, you could simply buy some new blankets, cushions or duvet sets in these tones. This will bring your house up to date with this trend.

  1. Shabby chic

It’s a trend that’s been with us for a while and shows no signs of going anywhere. Think painted white or grey furniture that’s been distressed and old ornaments which look…well, a bit shabby.

Our oak fireplace mantels come in a range of different finishes, including pale grey and white. This will make oak beams a statement piece for a shabby chic-style space.

Giving your home a makeover for the season ahead doesn’t have to cost a lot of money. Of course, if budget and time allow, you can go all out with new furniture and a whole new colour scheme. On the other hand, if you just want to update your living space, a few simple additions such as some new cushions or a fireplace beam, can make all the difference.
