Autumn Home Styling Tips
Autumn and Winter Colour Schemes
Not many people are 100 percent confident in decorating their homes with the right colour scheme. With autumn and winter around the corner, it’s time to start thinking about how to create the cosy space you want in your living areas. If you’re not sure, it never hurts to take advice from a leader in the industry. Decor Blinds is here to help you make your house into a home.
Here are a few tips on how to get the most out of your autumn and winter colour schemes.
In autumn, we think of colours that bring to mind changing leaves, crisp afternoons and warm sunshine. The obvious and most classic choices are to go with deep crimson, burnt orange and pale yellow to get that fallen leaf feel.
But don’t be afraid to mix it up. Dark brown colour schemes with beige highlights can give you that same feeling of warmth, and going a step further to a mixture of plum, chocolate and pale blues can create an incredibly inviting space.
Warm winter hues
Let’s discuss what we mean by “winter colour scheme”. It’s best to go neutral so that you can mix and match, and since it’s winter, dark hues will make you feel more at home. It’s always nice to combine cold shades with warm shades. For example, you could choose a scheme consisting of midnight blues and blacks paired with light greys and browns, and off-white to balance it out.
Also an option is to use deep, majestic purples with solid greys, whites and a bit of light and earthy blue to add some brightness.
Lighting is key in highlighting the colours of your space. You want to be able to control the amount of light and the type of light that filters through your windows and settles on your décor.
For autumn and winter colour schemes, you should create a space that is instantly warm, inviting and comfortable. When you walk into the room, be it your bedroom, living room or kitchen, it’s important to feel cosy and at home. People underestimate how important ambient lighting is in this regard. It can really change the mood of a room. Playing with lighting levels can complement your existing room tones, and add to the feeling of warmth and cosiness in colder months – but also, don’t forget to harness as much natural light as you can, as days get shorter.
Getting the most from your natural lighting is going to be a major priority. As there are less hours of sunlight in the day during autumn and winter, you want to get the most out of it. Take full advantage by choosing to install venetian blinds or roller blinds. With these blinds, you have full control over how much light you let into your room, maximising and minimising as you need.
