8 Awesome Autumn Décor Ideas to Transform Your Home for the New Season

There’s a definite crispness to the air, we’re closing the curtains earlier, and the leaves are starting to change colour. It can only mean one thing – autumn is here. It’s time to pack away those cut-offs, embrace the turn of the seasons and create the cosy autumn home of your dreams.

While we’re big fans of summer (hello festivals, Pimms and beach days), there’s definitely something to be said for autumn. The trees turning orange and red, the pleasure of crunching through piles of leaves, getting out that favourite chunky knit, sitting by a roaring fire – we could go on.  

Naturally, autumn is the season when we start to spend a little more time at home, and that’s why it’s so important to turn your space into a cosy autumn oasis right now. Here are 8 of the best ways to style it (you’re welcome).

1.Bring in natural materials

Autumn is a season that’s defined by the natural world, and autumn interiors are all about tapping into that vibe.  No longer just for the garden, rattan is having a real moment. This beautiful Starburst Mirror and this Rattan Moon Mirror have that organic feel that brings elements of the harvest inside.

2.Decorate your living room with fairy lights

As the days get shorter and colder, the living room becomes the focal point of any home. It’s where we rest, spend time with friends and family, and catch up on all those box sets we fell behind on during the summer. If you’re lucky enough to have a fireplace in your home, transform it into a magical centrepiece with twinkling fairy lights, flickering candles and some well-placed accessories. These Copper String Lights are the prettiest we’ve seen, and are guaranteed to transform any mantlepiece into a magical scene. If you don’t have a fireplace, pop them in a glass vase and your home will be glowing and cosy in no time. Or if you’re after more of an autumn lighting statement, why not try on this amazing Concrete Base Neon Lightning Bolt for size? We heart.

3.Add some dried flowers or grasses

Of course, we love fresh flowers too, but there’s something about a beautiful bunch of dried grasses that complement autumn décor perfectly. They’re totes on trend at the moment with the most amazing selection of dried goodies available online and the best thing is, they last all year round! Of course, you’ll need the perfect vase as well. This Mojave Glaze Terracotta Vase captures all the colours of the season and this Frida Terracotta Vase gives a characterful home to your gorgeous dried blooms.

4.Layer up blankets

Adding some snuggly throws is a total no-brainer as the temperature begins to fall. Layer them over sofas, chairs and bedding for instant hygge. This Moon Jacquard Throw brings a celestial theme with a Scandi style and this Yellow Diamond Twill beauty is as cosy as they come (we’re staying under here until the spring).

5.Light some candles

Nothing says autumn décor like a flickering candle. They bring light to dark evenings and tap into the whole Bonfire Night / Halloween vibe in a way that we find deeply pleasing. This Disco Inferno Marble Pillar Candle is a vision in magenta that will brighten up your seasonal colour scheme and this Mindful Moment Candle smells of warming fig and comes with a cute little matching diffuser – what’s not to love?

6. Accent with cushions

Nothing’s better for a quick interior switch-up than some accent cushions. They increase the squish factor of any room (essential for Autumn) and change the entire feel of a room for relatively little cost. We’re loving this exclusive YIWI Studio Coast and Palm Cushion with shades of orange and yellow for the new season, and this Yellow Stripe Cushion has the kind of soft, fluffy textures that we all need in our lives this time of year.

7. Pop in some plants

Indoor plants are perfect for all seasons, in fact they may even be more important during autumn and winter when there’s less greenery outside. Whether succulents, palms or trailing plants are your jam, you’ll be needing a pretty planter to compliment your indoor jungle. This graduated Yellow Glazed Planter is a ray of sunshine as the days get darker, and this Basket Planter on Legs is all about those natural textures we were talking about earlier.

8. Fill your home with gorgeous scents

Making your home autumn cosy isn’t just about getting the look right, it’s about creating a multi-sensory experience that ups the snug factor to the max. Scenting your home with warming autumnal notes like amber, musk and patchouli makes it feel like your home is giving you a hug, every time you come in. This Glazed Terracotta Burner looks the autumn décor part and has a deep dish on top to hold the oil of your choice or this Face Oil Burner in matte pink is a total cutey, just waiting to make your space smell delicious.
