With darkness set to take up much more of the days before September draws to a close, chances are you may fancy spending all the more time at home, and possibly even in your bedroom, where you can be sure of warmth and a familiar, homely space.
If this sounds like you, it could be extra special to consider revamping this, one of the most important rooms in your home, by grabbing a sense of this fantastic season and using in throughout the space.
Although some will be sad that summer is no longer with us, many of will also be pleased about the change of pace the season of autumn brings in the outside world.
Dark evenings are mysterious and intriguing, the colours of trees leaves become famously gorgeous and the excitement of bonfire parties is just around the corner.
Why not collect some leaves while they’re in their transitory autumnal state and take exciting still life photos off them, then print these and use a multi-photo frame to present them together? This would make a gloriously seasonal accessory to decorate a bedside table, for example.
Go a step further and you could use the gorgeous shapes and colours of autumn leaves to create a seasonal feature elsewhere – such as by painting leaves around your walls in oranges and yellows.
There’s some brilliant floral bedding out there too, that can help bring the main feature of your bedroom in line with an autumn theme. Or, if you aren’t a fan of patterned pieces, you could simply choose shades that bring to mind autumn leaves, for example.
Add to the atmosphere with a scented candle with a smell that brings to mind autumn for you.
And you’ll want everything to be super cosy, ready for the nights being that little bit colder. You might want to add throwes to your furniture – great for snuggling up under while you’re reading a fantastic novel on a dark evening! Consider your lighting too, and opt for soft glows rather than bright or harsh light.
Bring-in wooden elements to capture the central role that trees play in this exciting season. Embrace this natural material with rustic pieces, that expose lots of gorgeous wood, like a simple chair. Add a cushion in an autumnal shade and you could really bring to mind the way the trees look at this time of year in your home.
You can create little touches by taking elements directly from the natural world, too. For example, when the conkers have fallen, bring a handful inside and present them in a bowl as a nod to the well-known feature of this time of year.
Autumn is amazing, and it can really create a fabulous look in a room, so whether you’re going to find the summer’s end hard or not, we think you’ll love using some of our tips at home.
