Autumn is considered one of the more beautiful times of the year, and as we welcome in the new season we tend to rethink our tastes and preferences. Out go the flip-flops and shorts to make room for boots and thick coats. The same feelings often apply in our homes, as we begin to crave a warm cosy space to curl up in front of the fire.
Nature is a great source of inspiration when looking for new colours to update our homes, and autumn is full of warm and inviting tones.
Autumn Colour Palette 1: Brown & Golds
These colours are the classic colours of autumn. Caramel and Auburn coloured leaves litter the forest floor. To use these rich brown tones in your home, it’s best to add a fresher colour to lighten the overall feel of the room. We love the flash of yellow-gold of the leaves before they turn but the green of the trees will work equally as well.
Autumn Colour Palette 2: Teal & Burnt Orange
The vibrant teal sky works perfectly with the burnt orange colour of the leaves in this image. This teal shade could easily be used to add interest to a colour scheme of warm brown and orange tones. The odd accessories in this cool blue/green hue such as a vase or scatter cushion will make the look feel much fresher and modern.
This is just a small selection of the colours nature has to inspire us. Why not take a camera on a brisk walk and create your own colour palette?
