Autumn Styling with Justine Wilson



According to leading property stylist Justine Wilson, Autumn 2021 is going to be all about adding layers to your home in warm tone accents of chocolate, terracotta, rust, orange and coral. Lighting, updating outdoor spaces and adding greenery should also be on the priority list. The founder of Vault Interiors suggests keeping it simple by changing the light bulbs, installing an umbrella to make the most of outdoor spaces, or clipping branches from changing trees to disperse in pots and vases through the home.

“As we head into the cooler months, we ultimately spend more time indoors so it’s a great time to refresh your interior spaces to be both cosy and inviting. With many of us spending more time at home these days also, investing in sprucing up your home will be money well spent, and create an inspiring place to enjoy,” advises Justine.

Justine Wilson’s top Autumn styling tips and trends for 2021:
Add layers to your home: This means adding extra rugs, such as sheepskins or layer rugs on top of each other for added depth. Add blankets and throws plus extra plump cushions to your living and bedroom room spaces, this will create warmth and texture. Faux fur, wool and thick fabrics like velvets are great materials to up the cosy /snuggly factor.
Add warm tone accents: When it’s cold outside you want to visually warm up your interiors so opt for rich earthy tones which are also bang on trend and echo the changing leaves and colours of nature. Colours like chocolate, terracotta, rust tones, mustards, coral or orange tones are a great way to achieve this. Consider new scatter cushions, pop coloured artwork, or accessories like books, vases and candles in these tones to add a hint of warmth and to dress up your spaces.
Lighting: Lighting is a great way to battle the changing seasons, as the light fades earlier, consider adding extra floor or table lamps to your home. Ambient light always creates an inviting ambience. Also, consider swapping your cool tone bulbs to warm white for additional glow. If you don’t have enough space to inject additional lamps, opt for candles. Candles in hurricane vases or grouped in a large cluster on a tray are perfect for this season and look really pretty also.
Outdoor spaces: Don’t overlook your outdoor spaces as we head into autumn, the weather can still be nice enough to enjoy a dinner party or bask in the remaining sun. Ramp up the lighting by way of candles, lanterns or fairy lights. Consider installing umbrellas, pergolas or shade cloths to help to protect from the elements. Invest in an outdoor heater or add an outdoor fire pit for magical autumn evenings with friends and family.
Add greenery: Adding fresh flowers or large leafy green stems in the cooler months is a great way to keep things fresh. It’s an inexpensive way to inject colour and life into your home. Large vases of clipped branches from changing trees are a beautiful way to reflect the seasons and bring the outside in. Plants can be brought into key areas to add a decorative element and also assist with oxygen flow in the room. Fresh flowers on your entry tables or coffee tables will certainly add beauty, colour and create a visual focal point.
