Cosy autumn home décor ideas

From chunky knit throws in earthy, pumpkin shades to cinnamon scented candles to give you that cosy autumnal glow – here's how to welcome autumn décor into your home.

Cosy vibes incoming! Autumn is well and truly underway and to say we’re excited is an understatement.

It’s that time of year again, so, dig out your woolly jumpers, grab a pumpkin spice latte and inject the spirit of changing leaves crunching deliciously underfoot into your home décor.  

what is autumn home décor?

Autumn décor is all about creating a natural colour scheme that leaves you feeling full of harvest cheer. Think of crisp, misty mornings, wholesome forest walks and bountiful trips to the pumpkin patch – they’re brimming with warm reds and burnt oranges, midnight blues, muted mustards, and mossy greens.

It should bring the outdoors indoors and celebrate the awe-inspiring changing of the seasons, all whilst you get to stay warm and snuggly inside with a hot bowl of soup, a scented candle and your favourite Halloween film.

In a nutshell, it’s not just a cosy décor style, it’s a warm and fuzzy festive feeling that’ll see you through spooky season into bonfire night, right up ‘til Christmas and beyond.

As the nights draw in and the days grow colder, a throw is the perfect accessory to add not only a depth of colour to your home but warmth and texture, too. Capture the essence of the forest floor in your interiors and go for a chunky knit throw in a warm block colour.

Or get adventurous and opt for a super-soft faux fur throw. Try a subtle fawn print for ultimate autumnal vibes.

Being warm and snuggly is an essential part of this stunning season! Draping and layering throws over your bed or sofa will do wonders in getting that comfortable and cosy autumn aesthetic that you can’t wait to nestle down into.

With sweater weather in full swing, there’s nothing better than wrapping up under the covers after a long day of apple bobbing. If your bedroom still has the jungle-print, brightly coloured traces of summer in it, it’s time to swap out your current duvet set! Go for a bold seasonal design to instantly transition into autumn and transform your bedroom into a fall-inspired dream.

Invite the great outdoors into your home with our stunning Winter Woods duvet set in deep midnight blue. You’ll love to see the foxes, deer and rabbits frolicking in this woodcut-style print. Or, add a crisp countryside feel to your bedroom with our super-soft, 100% cotton Harewood duvet set in earthy emerald. All things flora, fauna and pastoral will work in bringing an authentic autumn feel to the bedroom.

Alternatively, embrace Halloween early this year and go spooky with a cute ghost print duvet set.

Upgrade the atmosphere and get a gorgeous autumn glow by lighting a scented candle or two. A soft flickering light will supply any room with an abundance of autumnal ambiance.

Go for a warm and delicious scent featuring notes of amber and cinnamon with our Wildlings candle, how autumnal! Or if you like it sweeter, pumpkin spice or apple pie scents are the way to make it smell like you’ve spent the whole day baking.

There’s always room for a candlestick! Create a magical autumn altar by popping orange, yellow and white taper candles in brassy toned candlesticks and dotting them around the home.

We all know the pumpkin is the ultimate lantern. And, bonus! Pumpkin picking and carving is an unrivalled autumn activity, so be sure to decorate with plenty of them – real and faux.

An indoor lantern-style table lamp will also set the autumn vibes, and as the sun goes down, you’ll want to add warm light. Lanterns in natural materials like wood will add a rustic feel, indoors and out! String up garlands of twinkly, golden fairy lights in the house and garden for calm and cosy layered lighting.


cuddle into cushions.

Indulge in the colours of nature and give your sofa-scape the autumn trick-or-treat-ment it’s longing for. Gone are the neon tones of summer – create an autumn wonderland by adding rusty orange and mustard cushions to your sofa. Fabric choice is important here too, opt for wools, faux fur and velvets for snuggly textures galore.

A soft, muted coloured sofa is the best place to start, soft brown leather or burgundy velvet will make the ideal base. But any colour will work if you’ve got the right cushions in the perfect autumn shades!

Go ahead with sumptuously soft velvets, traditional tartans and adorable animal designs to create an irresistible corner of cosiness, comfort and colour that’ll feel like settling down by an open fire.

Spend some time layering and arranging your cushions as the rain patters against the window outside. And don’t forget to enhance the autumn feels further with a blanket or throw draped casually over the back of the sofa!

To create an autumnal cottagey feel to your interiors, decorate with bunches of dried flowers. Arrange them in your favourite vases and place them on your shelves, bedsides and mantlepieces.

Throw an autumnal dinner party to celebrate spooky season – you can use your dried flowers as a gorgeous table centrepiece.

Wreaths aren’t just for Christmas. Why not get crafty and welcome in the autumn spirit by making wreaths for your doors? Get out into nature and forage colourful fallen leaves, twigs, berries and pinecones to create the autumn wreath of your dreams – your room will be bursting with the colours of autumn.


get autumn at your window.

Inject instant cosiness with a pair of curtains or blinds in gorgeous autumn patterns and textures.

As the nights draw in, we all know that satisfying feeling of drawing the curtains, shutting out the dark and letting the fabric of the curtains do their thing.

We’re talking velvet curtains in ochre for vibrant warmth and softness and floral blinds in mossy green hues that bring nature indoors.

Curtains do an amazing job of keeping the warmth in to keep you feeling snug as the light changes and the temperatures drop.

Curtains aren't only functional, they can really transform a room if they’re gorgeous to look at! So, if your curtains still full of the colours of spring and summer, it’s time to transition.
