Create sophisticated yet soothing spaces for cosy nights in, using a stand-out palette of blue-on-blue.
Rebecca Snowden, Interior Style Advisor at Furniture And Choice (FurnitureChoice.co.uk), shares 3 ways to style this contemporary look at home for autumn.
Warm up a blue living room with autumnal accents
Let cool blue tones take centre stage this autumn. In the living room, start with light blue walls as a relaxing neutral. Then add richness in both colour and texture with a statement Chesterfield sofa in royal blue velvet. “Reach for lush autumnal hues to warm up the space – think earthy browns and golden yellows through accessories and seasonal blooms.” suggests Rebecca. Layer cosy comforts that add softness, like cushions and a faux sheepskin throw. Keep the overall look modern and stylish with black accents and metallic gold accessories.
Style an ultra chic bedroom with bold navy walls
As temperatures start to dip, snuggle up in an ultra chic bedroom with bold blue walls and a contemporary grey fabric bed. “Dark walls create a cocooning effect for an irresistibly cosy space,” explains Rebecca. “Add texture with a wood slat feature wall in navy for a striking look that still feels relaxing.” Bring in the colours of bright autumn leaves with orange bedding and recreate a soft autumn glow using warm ambient lighting.
Create a polished feel with a modern dining set
In the dining room, take a designer-led approach with midnight blue walls and sleek, modern furniture. “Amp up the drama and warmth with a dark wood and glass dining table, paired with stylish blue velvet chairs,” recommends Rebecca. “Choose clean, simple shapes to create a polished feel.” Then add accents that are reminiscent of autumn foliage, like earth-toned artwork and amber glass vases. Brighten up the space with luxe metallic pendant lights and a light neutral rug for added cosiness.
