Autumn is officially here (technically it has been since September, but never mind that), and to show our appreciation for the season that is not too cold and not too hot, but juuust right, we want to deck out our houses with some funky and charming pieces.

Why? Not only to welcome autumn back, but also to get ourselves in the right mindset for the season of falling leaves. After all, how are the neighbours going to know that we’re bidding summer farewell if the décor and furniture in our dining rooms, living rooms, and other areas don’t tell them that? 

Let’s take a look at some fabulous home furnishing ideas you can try out by adding some cosy autumnal touches in and around your house.

1. Don’t be afraid to experiment with different reds for décor and furniture. It can beautifully warm up your home – visually, at least

6. A few loose pumpkins, dried hydrangeas, and fallen leaves can all spice up that dining table and make a fantastic autumn centrepiece

2. Autumn leaves in a glass bowl (or simply scattered across a table), dried twigs on a credenza, a pumpkin or two next to the sofa… sure-fire ways to welcome autumn into your home

5. Opt for an autumn-themed dining table with white dishes, rustic napkin rings, and some loose branches and berries for charming detail

7. Rustic touches, such as wicker furniture and timber surfaces, can help get you ready for autumn, especially when combined with fire- and earth tones like orange, warm browns, reds, etc.

8. Get your interiors ready for autumn by displaying those logs loudly and proudly near your fireplace

9. Let your little one(s) get in on the fun with charming wall art that show off those autumnal tones in a light and cheerful manner
