How To Make Your Home Ready For Autumn

Summer is coming to an end and there’s already foliage blowing around on the ground after the winds last week and some trees are starting to turn golden yellow and deep red. Now that temperatures will be dropping too, how can you make your home snug and more homely as we move into autumn and winter? This post will show you how to ring the changes of the seasons relatively easily.

1. Colours

You don’t have to redecorate to bring autumn into your home. You can ring the changes twice or three times a year by changing accessories like cushions and adding some cosy throws.

A couple of cushions in burnt orange intermixed with dark greens within your living room or bedroom decor scheme (if it suits the rest of the decor) are all you need to add that autumnal touch.

How To Let Lighting Steal The Show

Having the correct lighting in a room is essential for providing enough light but also for creating the desired atmosphere. “Correct” doesn’t always mean “bright” as sometimes you might prefer dim lighting for a relaxed ambiance but with a reading lamp for reading or working. With the vast array and beauty of light fittings now, it’s very possible to let your light be the statement piece in a room, either from the light design or from the effect created by its light source.

Bedroom Chandelier with a Difference

This Zeppelin light is interesting, it’s certainly similar to the traditional shape of a chandelier but it also reminds me of a droplet of water that just splashed and therefore, it looks quite endearing in an impressive way.

I like the way it doesn’t compete with anything else in the room. Everything is understated and yet impressive.

Task Lighting

These kitchen lights are also understated regarding their plain design but their size gives them impact and they will provide good task lighting for the kitchen island and this area of the kitchen.

8 Tips from The Home of the Year Programme

8_tips_from_the_Home_of_the_Year_Show

Do you enjoy watching home renovation and interior design programmes? I love them but I often notice it’s very easy to be lulled into watching the transformation but not necessarily analysing or learning from the changes to apply them to one’s own house. They are entertainment programmes after all. The RTE “Home of the Year” shows are being rerun this summer, on Thursdays at 7pm, and what’s particularly useful is the three experts also comment on what they consider to be excellent design within the home, yet they’ll find a few flaws too.

Here are a number of tips from recent programmes that you can apply to your own decorating or renovating.

Creating Extra Storage In Your Bedroom

 

6 Ideas for Simple yet Effective Bedroom Storage

Do we ever have enough storage? Do you find yourself cramming clothes into the wardrobe and then having to re-iron something before you wear it? Do you find yourself putting clothes on a chair in the bedroom because they won’t fit in the wardrobe? What do you do with the heavier duvets and throws in the summer? What about the seasonal clothes, shoes and boots? There’s only so much that will fit in a downstairs cloakroom or under the stairs and the same goes for your wardrobe and chest of drawers. So how can you increase the storage in your bedrooms without the storage itself taking up too much room?
