Golden sunsets, a crisp breeze to the air and a blanket of fallen red leaves means only one thing, autumn is well and truly here. Although it might be a little sad to wave goodbye to summer, with the seasons changing it's the perfect time to update your decor and interior to create a welcoming and cosy home. From home decor trends to autumn updates, we look at how you can update your home this fall.
Autumn is all about cosying up with layers
When you're transforming your house into a home for autumn, you need to focus on those extra home comforts, the textures and fabrics that make you want to stay indoors, snuggled up watching a film. Blankets, throws and cushions make the perfect furnishings for the colder months, and make it much easier to say no to going out. We know we'd rather stay indoors sipping a hot chocolate out of our favourite Sophie Allport mug.
Spice it up with seasonal colours and patterns
If you're looking for inspiration on bringing colour into your home this season, then one of the most influential trends this autumn is celebrating the beautiful colours of the peacock. From vibrant hues of indigo, dashes of emerald, turquoise and aqua blues, your home will be full of life this autumn with a burst colour. We love our Peacocks Collection, which embraces elegant colours against soft and cosy textures, perfect for that autumnal vibe.
We also love Sophie’s beautiful Pheasant Collection which is the ideal match for a countryside home this autumn and boasts colourful wings with beautiful tones of blues, browns, reds and yellows on a slate grey background. This charming collection is featured on a range of homeware accessories from cosy hot water bottles to kitchenware.
Experiment with indoor plants and foliage
Plants and foliage have been trending throughout 2019 and are becoming a prominent feature in homes. Introducing foliage into your home is an attractive way to add character and did you know it even has additional health benefits? Like reducing stress. Start with something low maintenance if you know you're not very good at keeping plants. Ferns will add a splash of greenery and will brighten up a side table or coffee table perfectly.
Bring in the autumnal scent
When it comes to switching up your home for autumn, it's not just about changing the visuals, but scents and seasonal smells also play an essential role. Now that summer is over it's time to replace the fruity summer and tropical smells with the smells of autumn and cosiness. Sophie's Woodland Walk Botanical Candle makes the ideal accessory to your home, with the scent of country walks, autumnal leaves and cosy moments.
The country kitchen vibe
For many of us, the kitchen is the hub of the home, and our Foxes Collection is sure to introduce a touch of autumn into your home. With their slender muzzles and their rich copper coats, Sophie's beautiful foxes stand out on the contrasting forest green background which creates an autumnal countryside feeling.
Style up your chores
You know it’s autumn when you no longer have the option to hang your washing outside, and your house smells of clean washing from the tumble dryer. Make your household chores more bearable by choosing designs which inspire, enchant and mesmerise. Sophie’s Woodland design makes the perfect fit for autumn and offers striking features with a range of woodland animals. We especially love this ironing board cover which is sure to lighten up your ironing.
