Use Autumnal Colours to Warm the Home

Use Autumnal Colours to Warm the Home

As the nights grow longer and the days become cooler, it's tempting to try various ways to warm up the home environment. A great method to do exactly this is to use colour.

Thinking carefully about colour coordination is essential to successful home design and overall home living. Creating a comfortable and relaxing interior is often made possible through judicious use of colour and tone.

With this in mind, we thought it would be a great idea to showcase some of the areas in the home where a change of colour can help bring a warmer and cozier feel to the place.

 

Warming up the Bedroom

Use Autumnal Colours to Warm the Home

 

The bedroom is somewhere where we want to feel warm and sheltered for the night. Soft and warm colours used in the makeup of bedding designs help this process of insulation.

Take a look at the Ditsy Cyclamen Duvet Cover by Orla Kiely (above). The striking orange glow of the floral design brings an soft and playful look to the cover, offering a warm and cosy bedding product. Ideal for bedding down for the night, the 100% cotton duvet cover provides a classic design alongside a reliably and easy to care for cover. Match with the Ditsy Cyclamen Pillowcases to complete a look that is as warm as it is charming.

Heat in the Kitchen

Cooking isn't the only thing that creates heat in the kitchen. By using a variety of warming colours in your goods and products you'll be able to experience a comfortable and warming feel, even on the coolest of evenings. Orange, red and yellow are traditionally thought of as the warmest colours, but using a tone of brown, or natural wood finish also brings a sense of insulation to a room.

The Salonloewe Medium Floor Mat in chocolate brown is a great example of this. The mat is perfect for use in kitchens with tiles or ones that often make use of a back or side entrance to the home.  The slim design and easy to clean and look after quality of the mat provides an excellent chance to warm up underfoot. The non-slip rubber coating adds a secure finish to the whole product.

Relaxing in the Living Room

After a long day at work, there's nothing quite like relaxing in the living room. Coziness and comfort can be brought out with a good use of sunny yellows and orange tones.

Cushion and pillow covers such as the Farbenfreunde Velour Cushion Cover Square (above) in corn yellow can provide warmth in both a visual and tactile sense. By incorporating a sunny look across the living room, on sofas, chairs and floor, you can soon realise a way to keep the whole place looking warmer, no matter what time of year it is.
