Autumn colour schemes

26 September 2022

As autumn approaches, you may find that your home is still decorated with summer colour schemes and accessories. You may be stuck wondering how to transition your home’s colour schemes from summer to autumn. Browns, oranges, reds and yellows are all perfect choices to add a pop of autumn colour to your home. At Mila Maven, we have compiled a guide on how to revamp your home in the style of autumn, using colour schemes, accessories and furniture.

Autumn colour schemes by room

Autumn living room colour schemes

Autumn colour schemes for living rooms can be very important, as the living room is the main room of the house. You don’t want to go straight in and paint your walls orange and pile in every autumn-coloured piece of furniture you can find, it’s all about little touches and accents. Keeping the walls a neutral or lighter colour like cream or white to brighten up the room is a good place to start. As it’s autumn, it gets light later and dark earlier, so try to allow the room to absorb as much natural light as possible to avoid a gloomy feel to the room. 

Colours like rust, terracotta, warm yellows and browns are perfect autumn colours to add to your living room. September is a great time to begin to replace your summer furniture and colours into more autumnal colours. Once autumn is in full swing, replacing yellow or bright colours with more neutral or darker colours like red or brown is a great way to create an autumnal ambience and leave summer behind until next year.

Adding cushions like our Orange Velvet Cushion, paired with our Wool Throw in Black, can be a great touch to your living room, and can add a pop of autumnal colour while also blending in with other furniture.

Autumn bedroom colour scheme

Your bedroom can be your safe haven and the place where your personality is showcased through your choice of furniture. For some cosy yet stylish autumn room decor, you’ll want to think about rugs, throws, duvet covers and cushions in orange, red or patterned fabrics. Keeping your walls a light colour can help to brighten your room and make it seem bigger. As it starts getting a lot colder in autumn, opting for furniture and accessories that add a cosy feel to your room is a good idea, which is where throws and rugs come in handy.

Autumnal styling ideas

Adding autumnal colours and bringing in some new or old furniture can allow for harmonisation and uniformity in your living room or bedroom. If you want to redecorate, opting for furniture that complements the rest of the room is the way to go. Our range of luxury scented candles and velvet cushions are the perfect addition to spruce up your home with a fresh fall scent. For those Halloween enthusiasts out there, why not carve a pumpkin or add some gourds to your living room or bedroom for some spook-tacular autumn decor.

Adding vases with dried or fresh flowers or leaves are perfect to bring autumn inside. Try our female torso vase in black or white to add a quirky and stylish twist to your bedroom decor.
