COSY UP TO AUTUMN WITH A NEUTRAL BASE

COSY UP TO AUTUMN WITH A NEUTRAL BASE

 

If you are thinking about warming up the look of your home’s living space this season, consider cosying into Autumn with a neutral starting point.  Neutrals provide a blank canvas for whichever interior story you want to tell.  For your living room, the largest piece of furniture is your sofa. Look for a modular sofa that can change and be reconfigured when you wish to change or update rooms with the seasons.  Once you have the size sorted, choosing a neutral shade of sofa will help in creating a living room that feels welcoming and contemporary.
 
 
Then you can add some contrast to your living room’s style with smaller key pieces of furniture such as occasional chairs, ottomans and coffee and side tables. Create impact by using a mixture of aesthetics such as contrasting colours, fabrics and leather.  If you sofa has a timber trim, you can pair it with a timber coffee table for another layer of warmth.
 
Floor lamps and artwork are a great way to add height and depth plus mirrors create the illusion of a larger space.
 
Large house plants can create height and add greenery bringing in the outdoors.
 
Finally, add pops of autumn colour with cushions, throws and rugs to complete the look.  This autumn burnt oranges, terracotta and muddier shades of yellow are popular.
