An upholstered velvet sofa in a vibrant burnt orange is the perfect base to showcase a tactile assortment of cushions. Try a selection that includes macrame, weaves, printed linens and plush fabrics.

Opt for leafy motifs on wallpaper and accessories, and bring in chunky rattan pieces to instantly capture a woodland feel.

Comebine modern and vintage accessories for a luxe yet lived-in finish. Dusty pink and terracotta with brass accents complement an autumnal palette perfectly, so choose beautiful standout pieces such as this contemporary shaped teapot.

'Update an existing white fire surround and create a moody ambience by painting the chimney breast in a rich, earthy shade of brown or charcoal.'

2. Rustic relaxation

Faded botanicals, subtle shades and homespun textures lend themselves beautifully to an artisan-inspired bedroom. Inject pattern as well as an element of comfort with an embroided fabric wall hanging behind the bed. 

Use a curtain pole or suspend a rail from the ceiling to drape your chosen decorative textile to create an alternative feature wall.

A glazed display cabinet can be both practical and visually stunning. Simply layer soft furnishing and intersperse with woven baskets filled with long-lasting dried flowers or pine cones.

'Shown here in an informal setting, complemented by a sage green decorative splashback and simple white cabinetry, a round oak table is adaptable to all schemes and room shapes, making it ideal for easy entertaining or everyday dining.'

3. Contemporary corner

The warmth and texture of wood really sings against a dark backdrop, so elevate your crockery display by turning a ladder bookshelf into a stylish help-yourself coffee station for guests.

Mix and match stoneware and carved wood pieces with linen napkins in a terracotta palette to achieve a minimal yet rustic look.

Autumnal-coloured blooms are the perfect accessory to style up this cosy corner.
