Embrace the season: 6 Autumn Interior Design Trends

Leaves start to change, Alpine descents begin, and the air turns crisper. Autumn has officially landed in Switzerland. And there’s no better time to transform your home into a cozy haven that reflects the true beauty of Autumn. 


Autumn interior design trends combine warmth, comfort, and nature-inspired elements to create inviting spaces that make you want to curl up with a good book and a nice glass of wine. In this article, we'll explore some of the best Autumn interior design trends that will help you bring the true essence of fall into your home.

1. Earthy Colour palette

Autumn is all about warm, rich, earthy tones that mimic the changing leaves outside. Consider incorporating warm shades like deep burgundy, burnt orange, mustard yellow, and rustic brown into your interior to get that Autumn style. These colours can be added through wall paint, furniture upholstery, as well as decorative accessories. Adding a pop of metallic gold or copper accents can also enhance the cozy, autumnal vibe. 

2. Cosy Textiles

To create a snug atmosphere, invest in plush textiles such as chunky knit blankets, faux fur throws,soft velvet cushions or thick hand-knotted rugs. These textures not only add visual interest but also create a sense of warmth and comfort. Layering these textiles on sofas, chairs, and beds will make your home feel inviting and perfect for the Autumn season.

3. Natural Materials

Autumn is synonymous with nature, and you can easily reflect this in your interior design. Look for natural elements like wooden furniture, rattan baskets, and stone accents. A centrepiece of dried flowers, twigs, or seasonal fruits in a rustic vase can bring the outside in and add a touch of authenticity to your autumn-inspired decor.

4. Mood Lighting

Atmospheric Lighting

As the days get shorter, lighting becomes even more crucial in setting the mood. Opt for soft, warm lighting options like table or floor lamps with amber or beige shades, candles in autumn scents (think pumpkin spice and cinnamon), and string lights to create a cozy ambiance. 

Don't forget to place mirrors strategically to reflect and amplify the warm, comforting glow.

5. Seasonal Decor

Celebrate the changing seasons by incorporating thematic decor. Think pumpkins and pinecones, and place them on tables, sideboards and entryways. Consider wreaths made of autumn leaves and berries for your front door as well as autumn-themed wall art to add a seasonal touch to your walls.

6. Functional Furniture

As you prepare for cooler weather, functional furniture pieces are essential. Look for comfortable seating arrangements like oversized chairs and sectional sofas that provide plenty of room for family and friends to gather. You can also invest in multipurpose furniture, such as beds with extra storage or coffee tables with built-in shelving, to keep your space organised and clutter-free.
