How to decorate your living room for Autumn/Winter

As the year flies by, Autumn and Winter blend seamlessly together, so it’s important to find an interior style that matches both seasons.

Having been styling and decorating living rooms for more than 30 years, Thomas Lloyd can help you find that balance between the traditionally warm tones of Autumn, and the annual festivities of Winter.

Take a look at our top interior design trends for 2020 Autumn/Winter.

Autumn/Winter interior design trends 2020

Dark colour block walls

Whether it’s a rich black, deep blue, bold maroon or forest green, having a dark wall creates a space that is cosy in feeling and sleek in design. We believe that a darkly painted wall has the ability to instantly take your living room from fresh Spring/Summer to snug Autumn/Winter.

However, the trend of colour blocking doesn’t mean you have to dive in and paint the whole room if you don’t want to. Simply, use a dark paint to create a single statement wall, which will, in turn, act as the perfect contrasting backdrop for one of our Aspen leather sofas.

Grey tones

Versatile and adaptable, grey is an ideal tone when transforming your living room ready for Autumn/Winter. Bright enough for Spring/Summer, and dark enough for Autumn/Winter, bringing more grey into your home will make for an easier shift between seasons.

By furnishing your living room with various grey accessories and furniture, grey will begin to act as a neutral, base colour for your space. So, whether you have one of our grey leather sofas in Smog, or a tasselled grey toned rug, using various grey objects and accessories will allow your interior style to smoothly transition with the seasons.

Natural materials

Wood, wicker and rattan are perfect for bringing natural tones and textures into your living room. With rattan plant pots, wicker firewood baskets and bamboo coffee tables, natural textures are a great way of adding lighter tones into your living room to contrast with those darker Autumn/Winter shades.

The natural tones found in these materials will match perfectly with the rustic style of our Vintage Chestnut leather furniture.

Spicey shades and scents  

While dark tones and neutral shades are ideal for transitioning between seasons, Autumn annually demands your living room has a pop of rich warmth. Whether you have a mustard lampshade, or a cinnamon spiced candle, no Autumn/Winter interior design would be complete without a pop of warm colour.

Knitted throws

Throws are an accessory that come back in trend every Autumn/Winter, and make for the perfect addition to those dark and chilly nights. This year, we recommend a simple woven throw to bring both texture and comfort into your living room.

You can leave it draped over the arm of your Cambridge leather sofa to give your living room that cosy finishing touch.

Autumn/Winter 2020 is all about creating a snug space you can curl up in at the end of the day. With dark tones, soft throws and a high-quality leather sofa, you’ll be more than prepared to withstand the cold nights.
