As autumn approaches and summer fades our thoughts turn to the inside of our homes. Time to look at creating a cosy, warm place to relax in the evening. A few subtle changes here and there can make the whole difference. Your bathroom can be your oasis and autumn doesn’t mean it has to stay drab and dull. Here are some ideas for you to try.
Change the colours of walls to immediately change the mood in a room. It can be as simple as that. In autumn time choose earth tones – something with brown in it – so that can be greys, reds, oranges or even blues. If these colours are a little too bold for you then choose one for a feature wall. Or opt for grey which is the new ‘white’. Choose a shade of grey that compliments the size of your bathroom and existing bathroom suite.

If it isn’t possible to paint your walls, then choose artwork that reflects the autumn season. Oil paintings are ideal as the texture reflects the season well. Choose painting in the colours of brown, red and burnt umber to really bring a feeling of autumn crispness indoors and alter the mood for your night-time soak.
Our quick win…To complement your bathroom artwork, swap up the bathroom linen for those in autumn colours.
As the autumn season comes around it is a perfect time to change your stools and baskets for natural materials. Choose wicker, rattan, wood or other natural fibres to bring an earthly feel to your home.
Our quick win…Use ceramic pots in your bathroom to house plants that favour humid conditions such as Peace Lily or Parlour Palm.
The best lighting in the bathroom is that which creates a relaxed feeling so low-light. Ambient lighting can work for this task, opt for warm LED bulbs whether that is a pendant light or down-lights. For those nights in the bathroom choose candles in scents such as pumpkin or spiced berry to give relaxed lighting with warm autumn aromas.
