Autumn home style tips

Autumn home style

Give your room a warming makeover for autumn by adding a rustic, wooden-plank style wallpaper on a chimney breast or within an alcove as this can lift the look of a neutral wall. Add warming colours such as burnt orange offset with sapphire blue for an on-trend look and bring these in via cushions and accessories such as lamp bases or if you’re feeling daring – go for a statement armchair in burnt orange to provide a focal point.


Accessories for autumn

Choose wooden or antique gold picture frames and vary them by height on your mantelpiece for an informal and laid back look. Our top Ideal Home Show Shop tip is to fill them with vintage prints or newspaper cuttings to make them interesting – or why not have your photographs printed in sepia tones for a personal yet trendy look. Intertwine with woodland ornaments and animal-inspired accessories and hang a large retro clock from the wall in a stylish copper tone - embracing the latest metallic trend.


Autumnal storage ideas

Look for shelving in rich warm wood which not only give rustic charm but can display ornaments, picture frames and house your books. Storage baskets in rattan, wicker or crate-like styles are popular and a perfect way to hide those necessary items that you don’t want on show. Adding a bench to the hall gives you somewhere to sit with the kids and take off your boots after playing in the leaves, plus you can store shoes and boots below and hang coats on hooks above so everything is in easy reach when coming and going.
