Usher in a sense of warmth with a palette of earthy tones and creamy hues
TOP TIP: Make an impact by hanging unconventional items, such as a woven table runner, on the wall instead of a typical framed piece.
To refresh your dining space, take a leaf out of autumnal shades like russet and sunset red that evoke cosiness. This soft, classic colour combination won’t easily go out of style, so your home can look gorgeous and on-trend for years to come. Here are four things to consider:
COLOURS The look combines the warm tones of terracotta reds, brown, beige and soft pinks, with different shades of white that are subtle, but add depth to a neutral palette.
MODERN STYLING Keep this look cool and contemporary by using textural, warm-toned pieces with white furniture, floor and paint colours. Furniture and homewares in natural materials such as timber and leather will also go great.
ACCESSORIES Look for pretty pieces that mix brown shades with white, from coasters to mugs and trays.
UPDATE IT The copper or brass accessories you bought last year will look beautiful with these colours.
