As the darker evenings roll in and we welcome the warmth of roaring fires and indulgent mugs of hot chocolate, it’s the perfect time to snuggle up and enjoy cozy evenings spent at home for an autumnal retreat.
Make your fireplace the perfect centerpiece to a homely retreat in which you can take quiet moments away to curl up and get lost in a book or spend precious time rekindling connections with loved ones.
Take pleasure in finding moments of joy in the everyday, creating a soothing atmosphere to relax in amongst the softness of cushions and wool blankets. The warming glow of a stove adorned with candles and an abundance of pumpkins will transform any space into a seasonal sanctuary, making your living room the heart of your home this autumn. It’s time to get cozy!
Lights4fun’s Creative and Photography Manager, Lucy Kirk, reveals this Autumn’s top trends and how to add a natural touch to your home décor, blurring the lines between indoors and out. “Pinecones, ferns, acorns and oak leaves all help us bring the outside in, with decorations in natural wood, bushy garlands of fall foliage, and pumpkin after pumpkin after pumpkin.
A warm, cheery color palette of oranges and tans is enriched by deep plum and denim blue, whilst felt, wool and dried autumn grasses add softness to hardy, rustic natural materials.” says Lucy.
When it comes to autumn décor, pumpkins are this season’s treasure, growing in abundance throughout the crisp autumn months and at the very heart of our seasonal traditions, new and old. They’re also the perfect place to start when thinking about your seasonal styling.
Mix and match various styles, heights and finishes to add depth to your display. Illuminated metallic pumpkins will immediately elevate your hearth styling and add a touch of opulence to your home this autumn. Display on either side of the hearth or on top of the mantle, the soft glow will complement the warmth of the fireplace and create a sense of tranquillity throughout your space.
