The changing of the seasons is the perfect time to give your home a brand new look ready for long cosy nights. When thinking of autumn we naturally think of the burnt orange and rich red tones of the foliage, but if you’re not a fan of these colours don’t despair – there are many other ways to add richness to your home.
This trend is usually associated with the summer months, however by pairing the vivid green of the plants and scatter cushions with the moody peacock blue wall the look becomes much more inviting in Autumn. The gold on the coffee table and ornaments also make this look feel much more luxurious.

This look is all about mixing colours. The maroon velvet sofa looks even more sumptuous when placed against the deep navy blue walls. Lighting and pattern (such as the Ikat scatter cushion) helps prevent this colour scheme from being to overbearing.

Velvet is used a lot in this look to add drama and texture and is even used in places you wouldn’t normally expect it such as the mirror (which is barely noticeable against the inky walls). The metallic touches on the chair and plant pot help add a little relief against the dark colours of the furniture and walls.
