October 12, 2023In News3 Minutes

As the leaves turn vibrant shades of red and gold and the air becomes crisp and cool, it’s time to welcome autumn into your home. We caught up with interior design experts, Lifestyle Interiors, to discover the top autumn interior trends to inspire your seasonal makeover…

Warmer and earthier tones

This year interior designers are favouring a palette inspired by nature. Think neutral earth tones such as brass, beige and orange. Consider incorporating these autumnal shades through wall paint, furniture, throw pillows, and accessories. Mixing and matching these colours can create a harmonious and inviting atmosphere. To create a more natural look incorporate wood accents.

Layering textures in textiles

This trend involves combining a variety of tactile materials like faux fur, soft wool, plush velvet, and chunky knits. Add depth and dimension to your space by draping textured throws or adding patterned cushions and pillows to sofas, chairs, or beds, guaranteed to make any room inviting. Hanging long drapes to line walls can also be a layering technique that adds warmth.


To create a cosy space autumnal candles and scents are must-have accessories that provide a homely feel. They are more than just decorative items; they are essential to creating a warm atmosphere and transforming your space. Place them on your dining table to create an intimate setting, scatter them in your living room or light them in your bedroom to for relaxation and tranquillity. Fill your home with delightful fragrances with scents such as cinnamon, pumpkin spice or cedarwood.

Lighting is a key factor in colder months

Lighting plays a pivotal role in setting the mood during the colder months. Use more than one light type to allow for different uses and create ambient lighting. Warm lighting tones are an emerging trend this autumn with many choosing to swap from cooler white lights. Use different types of lighting to highlight features in your home such as artwork and furniture. Whether you prefer minimalist lighting or a statement chandelier the choice is yours.

Bring the outside in with a touch of autumn florals

Floral patterns are not just for spring and summer and designs can take a cosy turn with autumn-inspired motifs. Look for wallpapers, furniture, and decor featuring botanical prints with warm and earthy colour palettes. Choosing dried stems and flowers in muted but beautiful autumnal colours styled in an oversized vase can create beautiful table décor. As well as arranging florals, consider creating autumn wreaths to decorate walls or add to your door.
