Autumn is the perfect time to redecorate: at no other point in the year do you find such inspiring colors and weather outside. That’s not to say you need to throw out your old furnishings and start fresh – accent furniture is a great way to update a home for a new season, and Cymax carries a huge range that won’t break the bank.
A natural color pallet
Designers say that autumn decorating is all about the season’s natural color pallet. Muted browns and sage greens come together to create a calming, earthy environment, while stronger colors such as burgundy and umber orange, reminiscent of leaves, berries and woods in autumn, may be used to foster a more boldly inspiring atmosphere. Play around to find out what works best in your space.
Autumn accent furniture
It doesn’t take much to implement your new color theme. Accent chairs, or occasional chairs, in rich finishes will add warmth as the weather turns – think mahogany frames and cherry upholstery.
Ottomans in brown leather have the same effect, as do chocolate and auburn fabrics. Consider completing the theme with an electric fireplace.
