Autumn heralds the opportunity to explore darker, more atmospheric colour tones in your home. Often referred to as ‘jewel’ tones for their intense and rich nature, they lend themselves so well to the colder months for interiors. These absolute gems create a seasonal warmth that makes it that much sweeter when you settle down into your sofa, while the wind and bad weather blusters outside.
This sumptuous and evocative tone works well with other jewel tones, as well as paler neutral colours such as muted creams and greys. Pairing with metallic gold touches means that you can create a sense of glamour within your living space. Making a statement with leather sofas in a hide such as Capri Claret, with gold lamps and dark wood furnishings, inspires thoughts of a cosy hunting lodge that will make you want to curl up in front of a roaring fire.
Evoking thoughts of vibrant seasonal evergreens, such as pines and holly, Bottle Green is a firm favourite of ours. The deep autumnal hue is particularly well complemented by moody blues such as navy, while accents in mustard add a surprising pop and brighten the overall appearance of the room. This colour combination works particularly well in the form of tartan, so dress your contemporary furniture with a traditional tartan throw for a back to the countryside feel.
Mixing with dreamy pinks and beiges will lift this stormy tone. Aubergine is truly opulent and lends itself to use in a more dramatic way. Accessorising a statement chair, such as The Sixty Two in Capri Aubergine Leather, with light silver beaded cushions brings a sense of contrast to the room and adds an ethereal sense. Metallic accents such as vintage silver gilded photo frames dotted about will tie the room together and reflect light.
