Autumn has just arrived, and with it a desire to make things warmer and cosier, according to an article by Bustle. If you love the fall season but are lost on how to cozy up your interior for it, then you probably relate to that statement very much. Fall aesthetics have a lot in store for home design, and that’s not just limited to interiors.
Here are 3 ways to cozy up your interior design for Autumn.
Invoke The Colors and Patterns of the Season
The crisp fall weather is best cozied up using the colors of the leaves. Deep reds, oranges, and browns give surfaces and cushions a look that’s warm to the eyes. Set this against a sky-blue base to make the colors pop. Or, you can follow the Scandinavian decorative style and go for a more minimalist aesthetic. This means sleek whites and grays, balanced out by tans and other earthy hues like those in wood furniture.
Note that this doesn’t mean you should always conform to the general color palette of fall. An autumn-leaf or minimalist look can be spiced up somewhat with a few accents of deep greens and blues mixed in. Potted evergreens and wreaths can add a splash of color to a minimalist design. You can also get bed sheets with sparse floral patterns, reminiscent of the first gentle blooms of the spring to come.
Enhance the Mood with Lighting
The nights are longer now, so it’s the perfect time to incorporate lighting into your interior design. Traditionally, people have used candles for both lighting and decoration, as well as to give more warmth during these chilly times. While we’re not reliant on them anymore, they can give your home a relaxing rustic vibe once the sun goes down and will really cozy up your interior design.
For this purpose, woodwick candles provide the best combination of warmth and longevity and come in several appealing fragrances to boot. Not to mention, they come with the special feature of crackling like a toasty fire. Their glow also works well when placed inside pumpkins. Lumina pumpkins are great for this since they’re white and don’t alter the hue of the candle flame.
Enhance Warmth with Texture
This is simple enough to do in the bedroom and living room. Soft throw pillows with pillowcases in the vein of this chunky knit pillow cover can fill you with a sense of warmth with one touch. Similarly, chunky knit blankets are wonderful if you find that quilts aren’t enough.
The part this gets tricky is with everything else. As winter grows closer, you’d want to make as many objects in the home feeling as warm as possible. One brilliant way to do this is by adding tactile sensations to the things you often hold, such as mugs and bowls. Glazed stoneware is fantastic for this, as well as those with textured surfaces, such as studs, that feel pleasant to the touch.
Besides these 3 tips, all you need to cozy up your interior design is to have a pleasant sense of comfiness yourself. Knowing what creates warm and laid-back feelings in the minds of everyone in your family will be your biggest guiding factor in making a cozy home.
