With autumn on our doorsteps, many are wondering what colours should be used for our interiors. We’re focusing on pastels. Sure, it’s a colour for fresh spring and early summers but in retro spec, it’s a colour that works really well for the autumn season.
Pastel colours with its chic soft tones create a modern and relaxing feel throughout your home. Constantia Fabrics advise that we adapt the trend for the autumn months by adding rich metallics and layering up thick throws in reflective silks and satins. Darker colours or natural textures will help to keep the overall look of the room from feeling too sugary sweet.
It’s common to add darker colours and rich touches once the nights start drawing in making your home as light, bright and airy as possible. Add wall hangings to warm up the walls and add a cosy factor to winter living rooms whilst still keeping them feeling fresh and bright.
Don’t think that pastels just need to be sweet and charming. It's timeless and looks more beautiful as it wears out. It proves that decorating with these colours carries an air of elegance and sophistication. Blend it with neat décor or more masculine elements and textures. This will help refresh and revitalise any dull room that’s in need of an upgrade.
