Autumn Interior Design Trends | 247 Blog

Autumn is the talk of the town, quite literally! With the season change comes the desire to refresh our home to reflect the current decor trends, so grab your chunky blankets and get comfy because we’re about to give you the lowdown on all things autumnal interior design.




The number 1 interior trend for Autumn is layering. It is one of the best things about the season changing and is a quick and easy way of cosying up your home. Layering could include introducing blankets, and extra cushions, or even adding extra items to your mantelpiece or coffee table. Perhaps some Autumnal finds like a bowl of conkers, acorns and additional candles & home fragrance. Adding softer textures, via our Roman Blinds, soften the look and insulate the home during those colder months.

Take your lead from your wardrobe when considering surfaces for the home. As with layering, more is more for Autumn textures. Wool, bouclé, faux fur can be added and even combined to make your home feel more cosy. Don’t be afraid of mixing fabrics, as long as you remain mindful of your colour choices and keep them tonal.

Candles and lighting are key to creating a cosy Autumn vibe in your home. Simple dinner candles dripping down old wine bottles are a quick and affordable way to add atmosphere, although there are numerous jewel-toned glass candleholders that are perfect with tea lights in for this time of year.


Don’t neglect window sills for a lamp, which can really soften the window area and add depth. Wooden Blinds, Vertical Blinds or Shutters offer great ways to control the light levels in the winter months — perfect for when the sun is at its lowest.

There is nothing more appealing as Autumn approaches than the sights and sounds of a crackling fire. If you are fortunate enough to have a real fire, then get fire safe by having your chimneys swept before you light your first fire of the season. Keep the logs nice and dry to ensure a long burn without black smoke.


If you don’t have a real fire, you can get a similar cosy vibe by trying a tabletop bioethanol fire. These are available on the high street and online and are really effective at creating a source of flickering light and low level heat, but the ultimate ambience.

Your autumn walks can provide some fabulous inspiration for styling your home for the changing season. Take a look at the colour palette of your Autumnal surroundings and look for accessories that reflect the bronze, burnt orange, ambers of nature. A beautiful brown tortoise shell glass vase with some dried flowers would make a really stylish addition to your coffee table or mantelpiece.

Autumn Spruce Up


If you are considering redecorating this season, then take a look at some new cocooning paint shades that evoke warmth and cosiness. Taking deep colours such as aubergine or forest greens down onto skirting boards and across doors and other woodwork will make your room feel luxurious and inviting as the days get shorter and the evenings grow darker. Jewel tones like amber, teal & amethyst create a beautiful backdrop to candlelight and metallic accessories.
