Room of the Week – autumn bedroom
This weeks Room of the Week is an autumnal coloured bedroom. From the House to Home galleries this bedroom uses a neutral base palette that is livened up with the colours of autumn .
As we head into the cooler months of autumn and winter this is a great time to refresh the look of your bedroom. This process doesn’t need to involve full scale redecoration, clever use of your decorating accessories can easily change the mood – and keep you cosy through the colder months.
Updating your bed linen is the easiest way to instantly change your look. If you favour light bright colours in the summer consider going darker and rich for autumn and winter. The beautiful Pimento range from John Lewis draws on rich reds and oranges to create perfect bedding for the autumn months.
Rugs are another item where it is very easy, and also practical, to change them with the seasons. Bedroom rugs are often smaller than in other rooms so can easily be rolled up and stored. I love the Autumn Leaf Rug from Marks & Spencer. Available in three different sizes it ranges from £59-£199 so it is a cost effective way to welcome autumn into your home.
If you are feeling more adventurous and want a larger project you could consider redecorating one wall of your bedroom. Choose an autumnal paint colour or wallpaper to help you achieve a new look. A rich tone like Incarnadine from Farrow & Ball evokes a warm cosy feel to any room. The new wallpaper Woods and Pears from Cole and Son would be a good choice to use to change the mood for winter – but the good news is that it’s so beautiful you can then enjoy it for the rest of the year!
