Autumn marks a seasonal shift in fashion, food and even decorations. We say goodbye to deck chairs and picnic blankets, and hello to our sofas and cosy throws.
While some autumn décor trends change year on year, others are timeless and, thus, an excellent investment to ensure you can update your home to welcome autumn in style for years to come.
Here are some classic autumn décor trends which will continue to be popular in 2023.
1. Warm, earthy tones
Autumn is often associated with colours like deep reds, oranges, golden yellows, and rich browns – to match the foliage, of course.
Why not incorporate these colours into your home with artwork, textiles, and accessories?
2. Cosy textiles
Plush and soft textiles like faux fur throws, chunky knit blankets, and velvet cushions add warmth and comfort to your space.
These materials create a cosy atmosphere that’s perfect for the autumn season – especially when it comes to keeping warm!
3. Natural elements
Incorporating natural elements like wood, dried flowers, and rustic materials can bring an autumnal feel to your décor.
Wooden furniture and ornaments are an easy fix for this – or why not try dried floral arrangements in woven baskets?
4. Pumpkins and gourds
We all know that pumpkins and gourds are classic symbols of autumn – and not just for Halloween!
You can use real or artificial pumpkins for tabletop displays, wreaths, or even as vase fillers.
5. Candles and warm lighting
As the days get shorter and the nights longer, there’s nothing like lighting a batch of scented candles or turning on some ambient lamplight.
Candles, lanterns, and string lights can create a cosy and inviting atmosphere – perfect for those dimmer autumn evenings!
6. Seasonal wreaths
Wreaths are not just for Christmas! Autumn wreaths made from fall foliage, pinecones, and berries are a beautiful way to welcome the changing of the seasons.
You can even customise your wreath to match your personal style with your favourite dried blossom or woodland animal!
7. Metallic accents
Copper, bronze, and gold accents can add a touch of elegance to your autumn décor.
These metallics work well in candleholders, vases, and picture frames – which can be used all year long!
8. Layered textures
Mixing textures like plaid, herringbone, and leather can create visual interest in your décor.
You can easily achieve this look through upholstery, throw pillows, and area rugs.
9. Scents of autumn
Autumn comes with its own set of associated scents – from pumpkin spice to apple and cinnamon.
Use scented candles or essential oil diffusers with fragrances to create a delicious atmosphere in your home.
