Top 4 window dressings for autumn


Posted 28/09/2018

With the colder months just around the corner, it’s time to start thinking about how to transform your home into a cosy oasis. Whether you’re revamping your whole space or just adding in some seasonal embellishments, autumn is the perfect time to transition your home from summer hangout to winter sanctuary.

There’s no shortage of ways to prepare your home for autumn. You can drape plush throws can be over your sofa – perfect for getting snuggled up in front of the TV when the temperatures start to fall. Scatter your cushions in autumnal shades to introduce a new colour palette through your home. Or you can update your window dressing with new blinds – an ideal way to block out the cold and create your own private retreat.

These blinds can help you crank up the autumn charm in your home.


Roller blinds



Giving a timeless look to your living space, roller blinds can help you create your own sanctuary. Mirror the natural beauty of this time of year with rich autumn shades like fiery reds, warm oranges and mossy greens – in patterned or plain styles. Create a luxe feeling by pairing roller blinds with heavy curtains in neutral shades. 



Wooden Blinds



Carry that feeling of warmth across to your kitchen with stylish faux wooden blinds. Made from high-quality PVC, these blinds give the illusion of real timber without the warping risks real wood carries. Wooden blinds are perfect as a standalone piece, as they carry a sense of sophistication. Choose deep woody tones to match the feeling of fall or go for lighter shades to enhance the reduced level of natural light available in the season.



Roman Blinds



Make a real statement this autumn with patterned Roman blinds. Floral designs are very in-keeping with this time of year. Choose neutral, biscuit shades and gold accents to channel the seasonal vibe. Roman blinds look great as a window dressing, and can also be used to cover patio doors – creating a private haven where you can relax and unwind while the leaves fall outside. 



Plantation shutters



Autumn and vintage seem to go hand-in-hand, so why not consider plantation shutters? Delicate greys are the ideal colour to carry your living space from the summer through to the fall season, while adding a cool and contemporary feel to your room. Plantation shutters can be opened wide, so you can really make the most of natural light in the daytime and then close them up on an evening for optimum privacy.


Once you’ve chosen your blinds, add more finishing touches to your autumn retreat with candles and plants for a comforting, seasonal scent around the house. For more inspiration on revamping your interior decor, check out our blog
