The turn of the season

While we’re firm fans of summer weather, we’re ready to welcome the shades of autumn into our homes.

In association with Dulux

There’s nothing quite like a new season to get you exciting about shaking things up with your interior, and we’re particular fans of the comforting aesthetic that autumn heralds. Layering is the key to creating a cosy vibe, and adding colour to your space can instantly add warmth.

Drawing from the Repair palette — one of four key trends in their 2019 Colour Forecast, Dulux have paired a rich array of greens with earthy hues to create interiors that cocoon you in colour. Take a look at the following spaces to gather inspiration for your next interior update.

“Striking combinations, such as verdant green, chocolate, umber and sienna set a playful, optimistic tone, while soft, green-based grey has emerged as the neutral – and the ideal pairing for these nature-based hues, says Davina Harper, Dulux Colour Specialist.

“There’s a sense of quiet luxury to this look, but it doesn’t come down to extravagant finishes or accessories. Rather, it’s the layering of natural colours and textures – richly grained timber, time-worn leather, cork and tactile velvets. To create this look in your own home, start by looking for ways to add colour, suggests Davina. “If you’re feeling bold, go for a feature wall in rich green or blue-green or if you prefer a more understated look, paint the backdrop of your room in this season’s subtle grey-green. Contrast is key to making this scheme work, so introduce doses of other colours such as terracotta, chocolate or burnt orange in varying amounts within the room,” she says. “Complete the look with warm timber tones and buttery leathers in furniture and accessories. For an unexpected, contemporary twist, consider adding a sense of organic rawness using concrete by painting a tabletop, planters or a feature wall with Dulux Concrete Effect paint.”
