The Perfect Autumn Interior Colour Palette

22nd September 2021

A red, orange and yellow colour scheme is a classic autumnal palette that can suit many different interior styles. Mimicking the beautiful tranformations that we see from our windows, these colours remind us of the changing leaves and burning sunsets that we enjoy during this time of year.

Whether used alone or together, by bringing these colours into your home, you will introduce a cosy atmonsphere and warmth that remains, even after the last glimmers of summer have made way for Autumn. Follow on guide on how to use these key colours in you home and what to style alongside them to complement the hues inside your interiors.

Subtle Colour Combinations

Pairing these shades with subtle tones creates elegant patterns that are surprisingly versatile. Styling them alongside a neutrals, grey, creams or moss green (whether light or dark) will tone down the intensity of these sizzling hues and will add ballance to create a stylish and understated interior colour scheme.

These colours work wonderfully on larger furniture and full-length drapes that make the most of these patterns.

Daring Colour Combinations

For a more salient pairing, try adding cobalt, navy or jewel blue. As blue lies directly opposite these three shades on the colour spectrum, it will be the most arresting to the eye. This can be done by featuring either a single pattern that contains both colours or as a whole room scheme for a bigger design impact. Patterns can be mixed for modern country interiors or used as block colours for more of a young modern vibe.
