Why autumnal colours are good all year round

leave a comment »

We received a new wallpaper sample book this week which has more than 100 fresh new designs. It features a lot of rustic, earthy, autumnal colours and some very stylish designs. *Swoon*

Autumn is my favourite season; those foggy, crispy mornings that break into big blue sky days with warm afternoons and trees exploding in colours all around.

Here is a design collection heavy in autumnal colours and I’m just loving it.

A favourite design of mine from this new book is ‘Caruso’. The background for this wallpaper is a lightly textured brown colour that changes in its richness depending on the light. It’s dark brown in softer, yellow light, but a light cocoa in broad daylight. The design itself is smooth gold with a metallic finish. It’s also available in white and silver.

In keeping with the rustic, autumnal feel, what do you think of this design? Do you think it will work well as a full feature wall or should it be a single panel feature as it is in the image below?

This next wallpaper design has a vaguely 1980s abstract art feel to it. The colours are so rich and there’s a small hint of sparkle in those broad brush strokes.

And finally, here’s another favourite from this new collection, Noble Baroque. It’s a blend of yellows and golds with the bold dark print again with just a hint of sparkle.  I feel quite regal just looking at it.

But I’m not sure about that bricked fireplace though!

I think autumnal colours are great all year round because their earthy tones are easy to match with timber, stone and other natural products. They also create a feeling of warmth and cosiness.
