How to: Bring in the Fall aesthetic

We may not be a nation of seasons, but it is nonetheless time for various warm shades of rust and yellow to make their way into the home! We couldn’t be any more excited; think rich and bold, from autumnal browns to deep, luxurious viridians.

Add a throw

Nothing says autumnal cosiness like a knit throw, so add these around your seating area to up the warmth and welcoming factor.

 

Display your favourite autumn piece

Got a favourite jacket? Hang it on an open shelf or rack to give the impression of fall and function, all at the same time!

 

Press some leaves

We may not have autumnal leaves over here in Malaysia, but if you’ve recently visited a four-season country or are about to, it can be a nice idea to bring home a little pressed leaf as a souvenir! You can frame it up on a minimalist backdrop after to make a chic decoration piece.

 

Patterns and textures

Patterns are a great way to brighten up any space, while simultaneously adding warmth! If patterns aren’t your style, opt for velvets in warm tones like deep purples, rust, reds, and so on for that autumn vibe.

Go with wood

Nothing says ‘living in lumberjack heaven’ more than rustic wood furnishings and fittings. Depending on the aesthetic you’re after – luxe or Nordic minimalism – you’ll want to choose either lacquered or raw wood.

 

Decorate with food

Autumn is a season for the cornucopia and the horn of plenty! Got a hankering for everything pumpkin? Grab one and let it sit for a few days on your table, as part of a brief decor set up! Other great seasonal food decorations include nuts in jars, fruit, and spices like cinnamon, nutmeg, and mace.
