There is no better feeling than returning home to a cosy home when it is windy or rainy outside. Homeowners should change their home with the seasons to suit their mood and their environment, creating a happy home for everyone. So, if you’re looking for some design inspiration, here are 5 Autumn/Winter trends you will want to try.
1. Orange Colour Scheme
Orange is a cosy colour that can add a much needed splash of colour to a neutral background, similar to the shade you’ll find adorning street and park floors during autumn. Orange works best with leather couches, wooden flooring and brown/beige hues – and is an inviting colour that will make you want to snuggle up by the fireplace with a good book and a candle burning. Bliss, right?

The tartan upholstered armchairs look like they are straight out of a Scottish cabin, and can perfectly complement contrasting furniture. Also, with so many colours in stores, you can find the perfect chair for your home’s style.
