Transform your bedroom into an autumn-proof haven with these stylish schemes and ideas
As August drifts into September and the leaves begin to turn, we’re already on the hunt for ideas to keep us cosy during the new season. With that in mind, check out seven of our favourite looks to inspire your autumn bedroom scheme.
1. Go For Gold
A super-cosy scheme can be luxe, too. To counter the homely layers of soft bedding, quilts and handy extra blankets, opt for metallic touches in bronze, silver and gold to give the room an upscale, boutique feel.
2. Natural Touch
Create a sleep-friendly scheme with a room that’s extra calming. A neutral palette, gentle prints and inviting throws give the space a soothing feel, whilst woodland accessories make it perfect for autumn.
3. Highland Fling
Give a cosy scheme a slightly masculine spin with traditional Highland accents. A tartan wallpaper sets the tone, and co-ordinated bedding pulls out the key colours for a cohesive palette. Finish off with wooden lettering for a personal touch.
4. Folksy Fun
Traditional autumn colours needn’t be drab; breathe life into a seasonal scheme with fun, folk-inspired prints. Mix and match intricate motifs for an eclectic feel, then add pops of warm yellow, green and pink to break up the pattern.
For similar bedding, try the Meguro range from £148, Anthropologie
5. Into The Woods
Bring the alpine look into your home with a woodland-inspired scheme. A soft rustic palette of cream and brown sets the tone, whilst wooden furnishings and cuddly blankets have a retreat-like feel. With a room this cosy, you’ll never want to get out of bed!
For a similar blanket, try the Linea chunky cable knit blanket, £80, Linea range, House of Fraser
6. Soft Touch
As the nights get longer, there’s nothing more decadent to snuggle into than a faux fur throw. Drape one over the bed for chilly evenings, then give your toes a treat in the morning with a tonal faux fur runner on the floor. Tip: boxes under the bed are the perfect place to stow extra bedding when the weather’s particularly cold!
For a similar faux fur throw, try the Supersoft in Snow Fox, £225, Cox & Cox
7. Colour Clash
Cosy schemes can be full of colour, too! Opt for a warm version of the classic autumnal shades, such as bold terracotta, leafy green and fresh white, then layer up contrasting patterns and hues for maximum effect.
For a similar check throw, try the Ochil wool/cotton, £160, Anta
