As the days start to get shorter and the nights are drawing in, it’s hard to fight the urge to curl up on the sofa in a warm and cosy home. Creating a snug and inviting interior literally starts from the floor up, through introducing natural wood tones that create a great base for your room’s furnishings.
Introducing autumnal tones
Bring all the gorgeous autumnal golden tones from the great outdoors indoors, by choosing a timber effect floor that combines rich brown and red hues for an authentic finish that complements a variety of wall paint colours and furniture styles.
Deep brown wood tones in the floor and furniture, combined with varying shades of deep green and antique gold accessories can make larger rooms cosier, but to prevent the room looking too dark you can add paler tones that help reflect light around the room. For a more classic look, pair antique furniture with a traditional parquet floor for a timeless appearance.
Using lighter botanical colours will create a fresher look and feel in your living space, and make your house bang on trend for 2017. Add a cosy feel with candles and some warm metallic and terracotta accessories, and a rustic timber effect floor with rich copper tones.
Lighting can play a large part in creating the right atmosphere in a living space. Introduce lower level lighting with floor and table lamps to artificially lower the ceiling and create a more intimate space. When used in combination with a paler wood effect floor, any light reflected downwards will bounce back into the room unlike with darker wood floors or carpets.
If your wall and furniture colours are more neutral, you can still add warmth to a room with your choice of floor covering. Stone effect floor tiles come in a variety of shades, and this classic Cottage Yorkstone pattern combines a number of warm tones that can be further emphasised with darker brown, red and green accessories. Add an assortment of textures such as wool blankets, chalk paint furniture and polished brass cookware to add depth and interest.
The same can be said for this Coastal Oak wood effect vinyl sheet flooring, that gives the appearance of weather-worn planks that have been sun bleached over the years. Simply by adding seasonal accessories in dark wood, low-level candlelight and autumnal coloured flowers, you can create a cosy living room that can be easily changed depending on the time of year. And don’t forget the blanket for wrapping up warm!
