Lighting Trends For A Cosy Autumn Feel
The time has come; we are starting to feel crisp temperatures in the air, the nights are starting to close in, and before long the trees will be turning blazing colours of red and copper. If like us, you absolutely love this season, and you’re more than ready for pumpkins, cosy jumpers, nights in front of the fire and everything else that comes with it, then you’re going to want to create an atmosphere in your home to suit.
We love nothing more than cosying up on the sofa with a warm toasty mug of hot chocolate on a blustery day, and with the darkest times of the year on the horizon, there has never been a better time to reinvigorate your lighting colour scheme. Here at Dusk Lighting, we’ve put together the latest Autumn lighting trends, so you can transform the look, and feel, of your home.
Autumn light trends
The crisp seasonal falling foliage scatters our paths with vibrant colours and deep hues. Deep auburn, zesty reds, pale yellows and rustic coppers create a sea of warmth that can be transferred to the interior of our home. Ditch the harsh bright tones and bring earthy red lighting to your living space and watch gold, red and burnt orange hues bring a cosy autumn feel. The addition of a Searchlight fitting can create a vibrant stunning centrepiece for any room. We love how this Searchlight Crackle Pendant Finished in Red Mosaic glass mimics the textures we associate with autumn; crackling fires and crunchy leaves. The oval shaping pendant light creates a beautiful lighting effect when illuminated. Perfect if you want to inject some rich, warm light into your home.
Red lighting for the bedroom
The simple addition of a zesty red lamp can bring warmth and comfort through the autumnal season. Radiating with vibrant colour, adding red lighting to your bedside or desk complements both autumn and winter interior vibes. We adore the shape and striking colour of the Franklin Bureau Desk Lamp in Traffic Red. This Elstead lamp has a stunning glossy finish and features classic retro industrial fittings reminiscent of the 50’s Americana diner style.
Copper ceiling lights
Copper lights are a great way to get this contemporary, and popular, trend into your home. The Eglo Jadida Single Drop Pendant Light from their Vintage Trend collection is finished in an antique copper. The light shines through stunning autumnal hues boasted through an intricate array of coloured beads that gives it a classical North African design. Warm copper and brass tones complement the red lighting and add a flair of creativity, while the green lighting balances with your living spaces. Golden and copper earthy tones are always hot favourites for Autumn, this season we love the vintage, old-worldly style.
Trusty earthy greens can be seen every autumn, and the addition of green lighting can wake up your living space. Green olive, guacamole and antique moss are very on-trend green lighting this season, they are turning heads on the catwalk, and there is no reason you can’t introduce them to your home too. Dar Lighting introduces you to a timeless and elegant Dillon Table Lamp in Green Glass and Green Faux Silk. This stunning table lamp designed with green transparent glass and a green faux silk shade can stand elegantly tall in both bedrooms and living rooms.
Searchlight Vibrant Five Light Coloured Multi Drop Pendant hangs elegantly at divergent levels from the ceiling, this lighting copies the flow of leaves falling from a tree, the rich brown and pale yellow complement the green and red lighting.
Lighting and the house plant trend
House plants are on-trend and making a major comeback in homes around the UK. Create your indoor nature woodland and highlight your plants with rich auburn paint and amber interiors. Make a statement with Dar lighting Achates 9 Light Pendant in Gold and Agate featuring unique pieces of agate which have been polished to a high shine. The olive green lighting brightens the room through dark seasons, while the rich gold and cool blue balance the room.
Mullan Ardle Pendant Light in Powder Coated Racing Green gives a modern industrial vibe which is designed to warm the home and create a unique point of interest with its floral shaping. This exquisite green lighting complements entryways, living rooms, kitchens and dining rooms.
How to make a room cosy
As well as sleet, rain and wind, the dark nights can bring cold temperatures and seasonal blues. This means it’s essential to have a warm, cosy environment that brings contentment right from the very moment you open the door. While soft, diffused light works wonderfully creating a cosy atmosphere, there are many other ways you can infuse that snug feeling into your home.
Choose warm paint for the walls.
If you want your home to be warm and inviting, then you need to project this onto your walls. Opting for an earthy statin paint, or even a textured or patterned wallpaper can make all the difference when it comes creating an ambience that lasts. We love peachy beiges and chocolate brown hues in contrast to sterile white.
Opt for wood furnishings
Wood furnishings, whether that’s a hardwood floor, coffee table or wooden shelving, wood instantly gives your room a warm and cosy feel. Even the incorporation of wooden bowls, pedestals and placemats in a kitchen can provide, what is usually a cool open space, a warm and cosy seasonal feeling.
Add a rug
A simple addition of a rug can instantly add texture to your room. Whether that’s a runner as you enter your home or a living room addition under the coffee table; with so many styles, you’re sure to find one to suit your existing interior perfectly. We love vintage style rugs, not only do they boast warm hues they add some homely charm to your home.
Top tip: Softer or shaggier the rug the cosier!
Experiment with textures
As well as a rug, other textured elements such as cushions, blankets, and even lampshades can put a cosy spin on your seasonal accessories. Blankets and throws are a necessity in our home at all times of the year and can be stored away in an ottoman or basket when not needed. Materials such as velvet add opulence while sheepskin provides character.
Invest in antique and unique pieces
Contemporary furniture provides clean, fresh lines for your interior, however, can leave your home with a little bit of a cool, brand new appearance. This doesn’t always provide the cosy feel we seek at this time of year, that’s why it’s a good idea to add some vintage or antique pieces to your interior. This is a great excuse to have a good root through some thrift shops or repurpose a family heirloom.
Light some candles
Pumpkin, oak and chestnut candles fill your room with cosy autumnal fragrances and are perfect for filling your home with comfort. Pairing these with gold holders would complement any pendant lighting.
As well as the obvious, such as metal taps, there are plenty of ways you can incorporate warm metals such as copper, bronze and antique silver into your home. You could look for warm metal-plated mirrors, metal kitchen utensils or other accessories to complement your chosen lighten theme. Here at Dusk Lighting, we’ve got copper lights, bronze lights and more, to bring this warm metal theme to life.
