Autumn is truly in full swing with Virginia Creepers turning sumptuous shades of burnt orange and deep warming reds, and the streets (and my back garden for that matter) beginning to fill with crunchy leaves. I just love this time of year, not only because we all can start to light a cosy fire and snuggly up in our finest cashmere knits, but also because the colour palette is just so dreamy! Think deep autumnal shades of oranges and deep purples, and the introduction of texture and heavy textiles in to a room that just screams ‘let’s stay in’.
In homage to the symbol of autumn ‘the pumpkin’, orange can look spectacular in any room. Orange is a scary colour to work with, but if done right, with the right shade and the right accessories, it can look great!
Purple tones can look super cosy for this time of year and along with sparkling glass and shimmering accessories, can look elegant to boot.
With Halloween looming and if like me, you enjoy to buy a festive pumpkin or two for your home, I thought I would showcase some alternative and oh so stylish ways to style your pumpkins, so it’s not all ghoul…more autumnal, understated and gorgeous!
Enjoy autumn everyone!
