Hunker down this season with a soft, soothing scheme in a pretty romantic palette
Steer away from the traditional autumn palette of amber, brown and gold, and bring a little romance into your scheme with soft pinks, delicate purples and soothing greys.
1. Cosy Comfort
Give your living room a subtle romantic feel with dusty rose, cool pewter and soft cream colours, then add comfort with luxe velvet fabrics. Finish with fresh flowers in uplifting pinks.
2. Blooming Lovely
Add a hint of boho to your bedroom scheme with folk inspired florals, such as those on this new bedding collection from Linea. The deep plum tones against the embroidered flowers have a delicately romantic feel, with a canopy fashioned out of a co-ordinating folk inspired set to complete the look.
Linea Gretel Embroidery double duvet set, £70; Fable Folk rabbit cushion, £20, Embroidered Bird cushion, £30; (canopy) Anastasia Embroidery double duvet set, £50; Sprig Vase, £30; Rabbit mug, £5, all Linea by House of Fraser.
3. Going Grey
Opt for traditional romance with this simple, elegant wallpaper from Cole & Son. Let the intricate wallpaper dictate the palette, and add pared-back furnishings in understated grey. Tip: bring the look up to date by opting for a modern bedstead, or add a French feel with wrought-iron furniture.
4. Timeless Traditional
Go for a refined, classic take on a romantic scheme with antique-style furniture, luxe printed wallpaper and neutral tones with hints of mink and putty. Add shimmering fabrics for a final touch.
5. French Fancy
Put a heavenly spin on a lilac palette with hints of oyster and silver. An ornate headboard and intricate wallpaper add a luxurious feel, whilst layers of soft fabric bring a romantic touch.
6. Restful Romance
Create a relaxed, casual look by teaming lilac walls with fabrics in an array of grey tones, then add metal highlights to give the look a little lift.
