Decology’s top picks for Autumn interior inspiration

Where did the Summer go? Yes, it’s hard to believe, but Autumn is upon us! This is one of the most vibrant and beautiful times of year and a great opportunity to give your home some Autumn colour! Here are Decology‘s top picks of autumnal furniture and accessories.

It’s an Autumn throw-down

Throws are a great way to add colour to bedrooms and living rooms. They’re relatively cheap compared to pieces of furniture, inherently portable and totally flexible!  You can amass a great selection of throws to bring out depending on the season or your mood! For Autumn, pick warm oranges, yellows, golds and bronzes or rich reds. This fabulous Highland Throw from John Lewis will do the trick. Or if you fancy something more subtle, we love Made.com’s Cubus Throw in grey.

Mustard Magic

Mustard is one of those colours that we all love, but don’t really know when to wear it or what to do with it in the home. Just like the actual foodstuff, with mustard it’s all about balance.  A small amount is perfect, but it can be quite overpowering when over-served!  Autumn is the perfect time of year to dollop on a bit of mustard – accent cushions, throws or this gorgeous Stella Rug and cushions range from MADE.com instantly warms up a room and looks great with a neutral backdrop of cream, ivory, grey or white.

Autumn Shades

Lighting is one of the best ways to introduce atmosphere and different tones to any room.  Find a great base or pendant, then it’s so easy to swap different shades around according to the season or to give your room different colour accents.  Try these gorgeous little Scratch table lamps from Litecraft.co.uk – with different colour Autumn shade, grouped together or scattered.   These amazing Hue copper lined shades from Made.com are great for adding some wow factor to kitchens and dining rooms.

Regal Reds

There’s something about red that can really lift a room and add an incredible depth to it.  It’s one of those colours that can say classic historic, regal and decadent all at the same time and a beautiful deep red is perfect for Autumn.  But if you’re not quite prepared to go down the red feature wall, then adding a few accessories like this Mulberry Tree Plaid Cushion and throw or Bloomingville Mongolian Lambskin cushion, all from Amara.

Autumn leaves

It’s easy to dress a room with different colours simply by adding some carefully chosen foliage or foliage-inspired accessories! We love these faux Mulberry and Eucalyptus branches from Cox & Cox to give a little bit of colour in a very subtle way.  And Laura Ashley’s adorable Autumn felt leaf coasters are perfect to sprinkle over your side or coffee tables.
