How to prepare your living room for Autumn

From oak photo frames to pumpkin-spice scented candles, autumn is here, and it’s time to create your very own seasonal aesthetic through your home decor.

Autumn is not only the season of pumpkins and the famous pumpkin spice latte, but it’s also a time when people like to rearrange or redecorate their spaces. Moreover, with Halloween just around the corner, many like to opt for decorations that are associated with this widely popular holiday. 

In this article, we are going to cover our Autumn must-haves. 

 Autumn Decor Ideas

Some of our favourites include stylish photo frames, cushion covers, tableware and cosy woollen throws. Moreover, colours play an integral part in Autumn house decor. From rustic burnt orange and russet to gold, don’t be afraid to experiment and redecorate your space. 

The weather is getting colder, so it’s a perfect time to add some warmth with blankets, textures and other stylish accessories.

Autumn Scented Candles 

The evenings are getting longer, and the weather outside gets colder. It’s a perfect time to add some Autumn inspired scented candles which are going to fill your living room with a beautiful smell. You can even choose candles which make crackling sounds to make the atmosphere even cosier.

In terms of scent, pick whatever you like best. However, our favourites are amber, patchouli, pumpkin spice, cinnamon and apple pie

 Garlands and Wreaths 

Wreaths and garlands are a perfect combination to add to your living room and create an Autumn feel. Don’t think that they are reserved for Christmas as they can be used during every season. 

You can hang wreaths on your walls to create a rustic feel, for example, above your sofa. You can also opt for smaller ones and hang them on chairs. Wreaths can even be draped over a staircase or mantelpiece to add a touch of warmth to your living room. 

Blankets and Cushions 

With the temperatures dropping outside, it’s a perfect time to layer chunky blankets over your sofa. It is also a great inexpensive way to make your space feel cosier. We recommend that you opt for plush throws and Scandinavian knits. 

It is also a great opportunity to add Autumn-inspired cushions to your space. Not only will it add a seasonal feel, but it will make your sofa more comfortable. You can opt for something subtle such as russet cushions or burnt orange. However, if you want to go bolder, there are plenty of pillows in Autumn-style patterns.

 Frames and Fairy Lights 

You don’t have to be an interior designer to know that adding fairy lights to your living room can transform it into something magical. You can fill a jar with wire lights, cover your walls or hang them around the back of the sofa to create a cosy atmosphere.

Another great way to improve the autumn feel of your house is to hang seasonal-inspired wall art with oak frames. It’s a great, inexpensive way to upgrade your living room, and you can also hang the fairy lights around the frames to make it even more special.


With Halloween just around the corner, it’s a perfect opportunity to add something spooky to your living room. On your walls, you can hang some scary elements, such as skeleton skulls or bats. Another great idea is to purchase spooky tableware and glassware if you don’t want to go over the top with decorations.

As you can see, there are many ways to add a seasonal touch to your living room and prepare it for Autumn. You can opt for something more subtle such as blankets and cushions, or go all out and decorate your living room with fairy lights!
