The Autumn Days and Autumn Nights of Interior Design
Summer is all but over, the evenings already seem a little shorter and there is a definite chill in the air. Despite this here at Room4Interior HQ we enjoy autumn, revelling in the fabulous reds, golds and yellows and the faint smoky tinge to the air as more and more people light their fires and burners. You have to remember of course that autumn is also the doorway to winter and all the festive fun that comes with it.
If you are looking to give your lounge a makeover autumn is a fabulous time to do it with soft furnishing, enhanced lighting and more lifting a room despite the gloom outdoors.
Clutter Free Comfort
We tend to spend more time in the lounge during the autumn and winter once the lure of the garden loses its novelty as the outside temperature plummets. Any room which tends to b used a lot or which becomes the main family room may often be described as a haven for clutter. Eliminate the clutter by investing in some modular furniture which offers both practical storage solutions and unbeatable interior design styling. This means you will have everything you want near to hand without any of the mess.
Have Throws at the Ready
During autumn the temperatures start to drop, perhaps not low enough straight away to light a fire or switch on the heating however to stay cosy a little something extra is needed, especially at night. Throws serve a double purpose in a lounge, adding colours, patterns and a decorative touch when arranged over sofas and arm chairs. They also provide unbeatable cosiness, especially when curled up after a long day with a book in hand.
Soft Furnishing Add Comfort and Style
Autumn may seem to be a harsher season with the light seeming colder and starker. To combat this festoon your suite with brightly coloured cushions, add a new soft rug and again remember your throws.
Let the Lighting Lead the Way
At any time of the year the amount and type of light in your lounge is what builds the right kinds of atmosphere. During the last months especially it is essential that you consider your lighting arrangements carefully. Soft light for curly up in front of the television and relaxing is fine where as a brighter light would be required for reading or detailed work. Dimmer switches are often chosen to make switching between lighting levels easier however we feel you really can’t beat decorative lamps and ornate candles.
This autumn fill your lounge with soft light, luxurious furnishings and practical yet stylish modular furniture. This will help you create the perfect place for reading a book, curling up with loved one or simply enjoying a calm, relaxed and cosy atmosphere.
