Autumn isn’t just about pumpkin orange and the plush colours of fallen leaves. Experiment with softer shades and moody hues for an autumn look that’s unique to you. If you’re not confident with mixing shades yourself, we’ve picked out some of our favourite colour schemes below to get you started.
Choose a blush pink shade that perfectly mixes pastel with a hint of moody grey. This colour is deceptively warm and works great with grey furniture like our Ariana collection, pictured, or can be warmed up further with a pale wood like the Marino range. Transition this colour into spring by pairing with a pale yet spicy yellow to bring some sunshine.
Deep, plum purples are always going to look great in autumn. For a different take, try pairing various shades of purple together for an ombre effect. Our Mehari rug, amethyst and lilac cushions plus the gorgeous Garra vase all work together to bring some vibrancy to our Genoa sofa. To really make the most of this colour, try painting an ombre wall, using a sponge to mix the colours where they meet.
Mixing two pastel or subtle shades together is a look that’s been key for 2017. Use colours from similar colour families but don’t concern yourself with matching them up perfectly – slightly different hues will make your walls stand out and make a statement. Our Lace dining set looks gorgeous paired with soft blues and greens for an earthy autumn feel.
Graphite is a gorgeously timeless colour that’s easily updated by pairing with any colour of the moment. Try accentuating with pastels shades – blues and greens blend well whilst a pale pink would create a brilliantly striking effect. If you don’t fancy being brave with colour, try a white chalk paint for added textural effect like with Tetrad’s Castle Bay sofa here.
