We love this time of year when the nights are longer, the air cools and it’s time to cosy up in front of the fire. So we’re going to celebrate all things Autumn, and give you some top tips to get prepared for darker nights.
Autumn is the perfect time of year to make changes to your interior design. Whether you want to add softer lighting for the longer nights or you want to update your soft furnishings, Autumn offers the perfect time to try out a new colour scheme or statement lighting piece. Changing a few simple things here and there can help you create a cosy look without it costing a fortune.
Keep in mind that Solihull Lighting is not only your one stop shop for lighting, we also carry a range of home accessories to. You can view the full range online or in store.
Add Soft and Warm Accessories
In Autumn you want your home to look as warm and welcoming as possible. Your interior design can really affect the way you feel about a space, and at this time of year you want to be comfortable. Adding some chunky knitted fabrics or textured wool can be a wonderful addition to your home for Autumn.
Do you like to wrap up warm in the evenings? High quality throws or blankets can really help you achieve that Autumn cosiness. Choose orange tones and tartan patterns for that truly traditional feel.
Add a Splash of Autumnal Colour
The seasonal colour palette is great for inspiration for the home. You can easily bring out these colours by adding a splash of Autumn around your home.
Not only can you add stylish accessories in oranges, yellows and browns, you can also help to give your room a bit of depth with more traditional lighting or Tiffany style lights. This kind of lighting brings out the colours of Autumn by adding a warm glow to your space. The Bernwood table lamp by Interiors 1900 really blends well with an autumnal look.
Create the Perfect Ambience
When you are choosing your lighting for Autumn, it shouldn’t just be all about adding more light. Focusing on adding lots of types of light into a room can end up being a big mistake, resulting in everything feeling a little unbalanced. Think about how you can create pockets of softer lighting in your home, rather than turning every dark corner into Blackpool Illuminations. A floor lamp is ideal to give a cosy glow to an under-lit corner. For an industrial look with a modern twist why not consider the Eglo Coldhingham floor lamp with its rust finish.
Autumn lighting is all about warmth. It has to be welcoming too. Pair up table lamps in your room and then add the intimate ambience from candlelight for a truly cosy feeling. If you’re looking for something a bit different we love the Där Stag and David Hunt Hare table lamps.
It will almost soon be time to set the clocks back and then we’re well and truly into Autumn. That’s when the countdown begins to Christmas, but don’t let that put you off. Enjoy Autumn and remember to add some of its spice into your home this year.
