Discover 8 cosy living room ideas to make your home interior ready for autumn and winter. Find out how to decorate a living room ahead of the colder months, here.
When the long summer days come to an end, it can be sad to think of colder weather, rain, and dark winter nights. However, we can think of plenty reasons to be excited about autumn and winter. Here are eight living room décor ideas to prepare you for the colder months while making your living room ready for autumn and winter this year.
When it’s raining outside, there’s nothing better than curling up in a chair or on the sofa and watching your favourite programme or diving into a great book. So, why not invest in a new cosy sofa or armchair that embodies autumn and cosy? From autumn shades in dark reds and warm browns to checker fabrics that add character and charm, including these in your autumn home décor will sure to make any room feel warm and cosy.
Top tip: If you’re lucky enough to have a fireplace, why not arrange your furniture around it to make it a focal point of your home. Alternatively, you can position your furniture inward for an even more companionable and cosy living room.
Wrap up warm
For the perfect addition to a sofa or chair, accessories such as soft throws and thick blankets are a must. Ideal for cosying up when watching a film, or when the weather takes a turn for the worse, accessories for your furniture play a multi-functional role in your home. To help you achieve this look, go for chunky materials such as velvet, fleece or even faux fur which look great draped over sofa arms when not in use. Make sure to avoid shiny, thin materials as they won’t make the living room feel as cosy.
Top tip: Select patterns such as check or tartan to create a homely, rustic feel to your living room and mix and match the fabrics for variety.
Cosy colour schemes
To create an autumn feel, cosy living room colours are a must. Redecorating your space in warm tones like yellow, orange, browns and reds helps brings autumn leaves to mind, and will make the room feel more intimate as the sun goes down. For example, a mocha coloured cosy sofa in dark red or accented with dark cool colours such as green or blue can raise the temperature of your living room and add warmth.
