How to Transition Your Home from Summer to Autumn and Winter
As the days grow shorter and the temperature drops, it's time to say goodbye to the sunny days of summer as we welcome in cooler, dewier autumn.
There's no better way to embrace the changing seasons than by transforming your home into a tranquil and inviting retreat. And with just a few simple tweaks and home accessories, you can create an ambience that embodies the warmth and comfort of a cosy autumnal afternoon.
In this blog, we delve into a handful of quick and easy ways on how to transition your home from summer to autumn/winter.
Embrace Warm Textures
Introducing warm and tactile textures is one of the simplest ways to bring autumn and winter into your home. Swap out lightweight, summery fabrics with plush throws, wool blankets, and opulent cushions decked in rich, earthy tones.
Consider layering textures like chunky knits and velvet with intricate prints such as fabulous florals to add depth and richness to your living space. Not only will this create a sense of warmth, but it will also provide a cosy haven to retreat to during chilly evenings.
Rich Colour Palette
Transform the colour scheme in your home to reflect the changing leaves of autumn and winter. Incorporate hues such as deep crimsons, rusty oranges, golden yellows, and forest greens into your decor. You don't have to repaint the entire house; simple additions like cushions, throws, wall art, and decorative pieces in these autumnal shades can work wonders in setting the seasonal tone.
Bring Nature Indoors
Embrace the beauty of nature by incorporating natural elements into your decor. Arrange bowls of pinecones, acorns, and colourful leaves on coffee tables or mantelpieces to bring the fresh scent of autumn into your abode. Or create a stunning dining table centrepiece with autumnal flowers to bring the outdoors inside.
Additionally, adding indoor plants like peace lilies, snake plants, or even artificial plants can provide a touch of green and freshen up your space during the colder months.
Create a Cosy Nook
As the weather gets colder, it's the perfect time to create a cosy reading nook or a relaxation corner in your home. Position a comfortable armchair or a soft beanbag near a window with a view to enjoy the changing scenery outside.
Enhance the ambience further with a textured rug and soft fairy lighting. Have a stack of your favourite books and a warm throw blanket within arm's reach and you’ll be ready to escape to the pages of your next chapter.
Consider Low Lighting and Candles
Adjusting your lighting is a crucial aspect of transitioning from summer to autumn/winter. Swap out bright, cool lighting for warm, soft illumination that exudes a comforting and inviting feel.
Consider using table lamps and floor lamps with warm-toned bulbs. Incorporating ornate candle holders can also be an excellent addition to your space. These flickering flames not only provide a gentle glow but also fill the air with delightful scents like cinnamon, vanilla, and spiced apple to evoke the beautiful scents of autumn.
