September is here, and with it comes the slow embrace of autumn. The evenings are getting shorter, the clocks are about to turn back, and it’s time to get the thick blankets out. But all is not lost because this time of year is perfect to snuggle up by the fire with a hot chocolate and watch the latest period drama. Check out our warm and cosy autumn design ideas to see you through!
Turn Your Hallway into a Log Store with this Wallpaper
Turn your hallway into a log store with this novelty wallpaper by Andrew Martin. Greet your guests with the warm feeling of home, and all the colours of autumn. If you don’t want your front room to feel too much like a woodshed, why not have a feature wall with it on. Unfortunately, you can’t burn these logs, so you’d better get the chopping block out, it won’t chop itself!
Maybe you’d like a rustic Victorian front door for your hallway as well? Have a look at what we have on offer.
Bring The Outside In With A Natural Collage
We love the look of this all natural autumnal collage. The reds and browns of autumn add a real warmness to any room, and this is a charming way to bring the colours outside into your home. A basketful of miniature pumpkins might not be everyone’s idea of a fruit bowl, but we like the effect it gives. Why not experiment with different types of leaves like oak, horse chestnut and beech? A bowl of horse chestnuts can finish the effect off.
Make a Woodland Picture Frame
Let’s stick with the theme of bringing the outside in for a moment. Try making your own bespoke picture frames using, twigs, moss and leaves you can find outside. A great weekend activity to do with the kids, make sure you dry all your materials before assembling to ensure they last as long as possible. You can find the tutorial here at On Sutton Place.
Decorate your Front Door with an Autumnal Wreath
Autumn is a great time to make your own autumnal wreath. You can use a combination of twigs, long grasses, evergreens and deciduous plants. There’s so much more on offer than the same old Christmas holly wreath, and again this is a great activity for some quality family time. And these wreaths are not just reserved for the front door! There’s plenty of room inside the house too. Decorate your mantelpiece and dressers with these to really capture the season.Why not look at our selection of Georgian Front Doors, to match the one in this image.
Relax around the fireplace
What better time of year to get cosy around a wood burning fire? Cuddle up with your loved ones and have some quality time. Maybe it’s time to crack out a game of scrabble, although we all know Grandma will win! Match the hue of the flames with the curtains and furnishings in your room to make it extra special.
