I’m rather enjoying some of the colours I’m seeing out and about on the High St at the moment.
With autumn approaching thoughts naturally turn to warmer colours and apart from ‘Halloween Orange’ there’s a going to be a lot of rusts, terracottas and oranges coming your way as we go through the autumn and into the New Year.
If you’re not prepared to go quite that far with colour, you will have noticed a lot of mustard and ochre tones which give some warmth and together a few of those lovely deep russett tones you have yourself a lovely autumnal home.
Even if you’re a Scandi fan some of the peaches, mustards and yellows fit nicely in a pared back Scandi scheme.
I’ve rounded up a few of my favourite cozy autumnal pieces to get you in the mood:
First up is this great geometric Multicolour Cubic Rug from Next. Not only does it have a lovely shape, not being fully square at each end as it plays with the cube design and lets that govern it’s shape. There’s yellow and russet in there, and a colour you’ll be seeing a lot soon, Teal. If you’re into trends, this is bang on it. It comes in a number of sizes and prices, from £95 – £340, and luckily for those wheelchair users, it’s a low pile which isn’t too high (see this post for more on rugs).

Next up, some lovely peach crockery. Yes – peach. Don’t get any ideas of 80’s taffeta bridesmaid dresses or your nan’s blankets – this is set to replace Milennial Pink as the new neutral. This set is from Anthropologie and comes in a number of shades but these peachy ones are very pretty. The pieces start from £10 for the side plate. The tea cup is a particularly lovely shape I think?

A write up of Autumnal accessories wouldn’t be complete without a throw or two. I’m a big fan of a blanket or throw on the sofa, especially on a chilly Sunday afternoon catching up on a box set. We’ve got two in the living room and I use them a lot. Even in summer. This one is a lovely mustard yellow tone and is from Matalan – and a lovely price too, £15. Not only that it’s machine washable so it’s nice and easy to maintain.

This lovely combo from Joules is on sale at House of Fraser and they are a lovely Antique Gold with a pink trim. The cushion is £40 and would do well on my sofa I think? P.s. how lovely is that mug?!

This lovely mustard and grey Hula throw from John Lewis is reversible so you can keep it neutral with a hint of colour, or mix it up with some colour and a hint of grey. It’s £49 and is lovely and modern, but with a retro feel – I think would fit in with most Scandi or calming schemes for a little spot of colour. I love this, what do you think?

Of course Copper and Gold accessories are still here to stay, so there’s plenty of things to choose from – it gives you the hint of yellow, ochre, russet if you don’t want to go the whole hog.
ASDA has a nice inexpensive variety of Copper and Gold homewares including this lovely modern lantern, there’s three sizes to choose from and from £12 for the smallest it’s a good price for your candle in the darker nights. I love the round handle at the top for easy moving and it seems to me very elegant for the price.

So that’s my quick round up for the start of autumn, I’ll be investing in another throw because I can never have too many! What are you planning to look for this season?
