Interiors Pinspiration: Autumnal Colour Schemes

This week on Pinterest, we’ve been looking outdoors to the falling foliage for colour ideas … 

Eagerly announcing itself in a kaleidoscopic flurry of falling leaves, the arrival of the heart of autumn is one seasonal transition you can’t help but notice. The child in me still loves crunching my way through the newly fallen debris, but the true magic is in watching the leaves that are still hanging on begin to turn.

The transformation from soft green to shocking shades of rich, blazing red, molten gold and burnt orange can seem to happen overnight for some, with others changing bit by bit before finally being absorbed into the surrounding mass of riotous colour.

So enamoured are we with this multi-hued natural phenomenon that we have been poring over Pinterest, looking for ways to reproduce it in our homes…

The colours in this generally incredible apartment by Australian architects TFAD make me feel all full of the joys of autumn. The vivid orange tone of the armchair is picked up in the sofa cushion as well as in the artwork adorning the walls, while the dark wood and black marble adds extra warmth.

I am coveting this fabulous duvet cover from Couleur Locale for its stonewashed linen feel and its rich hue that calls to mind glowing autumnal sunsets and abundant harvests. When combined with the gentler greys and browns of the pillows and throw, this striking camel shade is gorgeously grown up and undeniably stylish.

What’s not to like about this enticing living room, part of an extraordinary modern-Bohemian home in the Santa Barbara foothills? Interior designers The Archers styled this living room to perfection with an understated base palette, cleverly complemented by the bold, rich tones of the cushions and pouffe.
