Keep the warmth in with curtains and blinds in autumn shades
September 26, 2022
Ready to embrace the seasonal transition? Transform your home into a cosy retreat by adding autumn shades with your window furnishings.
When the temperature drops, it’s increasingly important to feel warm and cosy in our living spaces – and adding some autumn spice to your interiors is guaranteed to make spending time indoors a pleasure.
Think ginger lattes, cinnamon buns and mulled wine full of warming cloves and star anise… these autumnal treats offer a wealth of interior design inspiration. Adding warming coffee tones and burnt orange hues will create a welcoming feel, and teamed with other autumn shades like golden yellows and the brown-reds and rust tones of fallen leaves, help to unite your room scheme.
If you’re inspired by rich red wines, autumn berries and evergreens, capture this at home with deep burgundy and pops of dark reds, contrasted with calming forest greens – and with winter around the corner, these tones will be the perfect backdrop for your Christmas decorations.
Whichever of these autumn shades appeal, soft window furnishings such as curtains and Roman blinds are ideal for mixing these shades in patterns ranging from tartans to florals, or in plain blocks of colour. And for a complementary finishing touch, accessories such as cushions and lampshades in the same fabrics will add a stylish accent for a cohesive scheme.
What’s more, thermal linings on Roman blinds or curtains are available as a free upgrade from Blinds Direct. Research shows that, while drawing the curtains at dusk can reduce heat loss by around 15%, well-fitted thermal curtains and blinds can reduce heat loss in your home by up to 25%.
So whatever design you choose this autumn, you’ll have maximum cosiness guaranteed.
