It's time to get creative

Autumn décor for the design lover

Autumn is well and truly here, which mean’s it’s time to start preparing your home for the cooler months ahead – or at least begin to brainstorm.

The magical quality of autumn is when the foliage starts to evolve in colour and texture. Invite this magic into your home by celebrating the season in your decor choices. If you are uncertain as to what autumn homeware styling looks like for 2018, don’t stress, we are here to help! It can be challenging to know where to begin, but thankfully, our Lifestyle & Design retailers provide a HUGE amount of inspiration – keep scrolling for the inside scoop…


The indoor plant resurgence from the 80s is onwards and upwards this autumn. From hanging plants to potted succulents, you can add greenery to any room (even the bathroom). Don’t fancy yourself a green thumb? Don’t worry, the botanical range at Pottery Barn, is the opposite of high maintenance and will add a sense of light to any room. Compliment your greenery with Faceted Modern Planters from West Elm and voilà you have relaxing green space – inspiration above.


Cool, calm and curated – can someone please teleport us to this room? If you are keen to replicate this look take note of the soft, textured furnishings mixed with deep autumnal, earthy colours such as forest green, brown, olive, burgundy and terracotta. These colours inspire a sense of warmth, light and balance. You can invite these colours into your home with the Ethnicraft Walkfut Tripod Coffee Table from Clickon Furniture or Tiles Cushion from Living Edge. Alternatively, have fun with seasonally themed crockery, cushions, throws or art. Hot tip: a beautiful Resin Boulder Platter from Dinosaur Designs is functional and timeless art.


Go au naturel with raw, organic textures, hand-glazed ceramics and worn and weathered woods this season. Get creative and combine organic linens with autumnal colours in the bedroom! Airo bedding from Jardan is a must! Mix and match the collection to add a whole new depth to the room – the end result is pictured above – you want to jump in, right?


You can find us saying “cheers” from under a throw in the cosy lounge setting pictured above. Perfect for nights in or burrowing into a good book, throws are oh so cosy and give your house an enjoyable informality, friendliness and homeliness. An autumn staple, you can find your new season throw at Bed Bath N’ Table.


There is a design location for every autumnal style on James St – explore the neighbourhood to see what else is on offer from our Lifestyle & Design retailers.
