5 Autumn Trends To Try And How To Get Them The Affordable Way
No matter where you are in the world, there is a pretty strong chance that autumn is your favourite season. There is just something so special about this time of the year and styling our home for this season is even more special still. If you want to extend your favourite season of the year and reflect these autumn vibes in your home, then follow these five autumnal trends.
What’s more, we will even cover how you can get these 5 things in an affordable way. Now, let’s get into it.
As the weather gets cooler it is only reasonable that we furnish our home with warm, soft finishes. A nice autumn rug from eBay is a great way to earn Qantas points while adding layers and textures to your home, and you can even select rugs that are in the autumn colour palette of brown, burnt orange, mustard, beige and chocolate. These warm and earthy tones work so well with each other that you can even consider layering them and having more than one rug and mat on your floor at any given time. Now obviously we don’t want our floors to look like we have lots of clean washing all over the place, so ensure that your layering is done sparingly and tastefully.
An affordable way to bring this style to your home is to find rugs from vintage shops and op shop stores. You might even find something secondhand on a marketplace-type platform, and if it isn’t available in a colour you like, you may be able to dye it into the aforementioned colours.
Dehydrated flowers are really having a moment. They may come at a more expensive price point, but there’s something pretty awesome about having flowers that will never die and always keep this stunning dehydrated form. Typically these bunches will include wildflowers, ferns, and even some feathery flowers for added texture. This style of floral arrangement suits autumn perfectly and will create a stunning parallel to what’s happening outside in the garden.
An affordable way to bring dehydrated flowers into your home is to dehydrate them yourself. This won’t be possible for all flower types, so do your research into what types of flowers will be able to reach this state of dehydration.
Is there anything more decadent than having a linen bedspread? This is a real trend at the moment, and it is gaining even more momentum as we head into autumn. Linen comes with a pretty heavy price tag, so if you want to pick up linen bedding at an affordable price, you’ll have to put in the work and look around online and in-store. What you really need to keep an eye on is what the material is made of in its totality. Well-known brands are always going to add an extra mark up but if you know what linen percentage to look for on the material care tag, then you can make a call and pick up a bargain.
Warm, festoon lighting
There is just something about lighting that can really relax us into the evening and make us feel even more comfortable in our homes. Warm festoon lighting always compliments an indoor and outdoor space, so consider hanging some in parts of your home that need some autumn transformation. Festoon lighting is really lovely when you were entertaining, as no one wants to be catching up and enjoying a meal under blinding light. You can do this affordably if you choose to hang the festoons yourself or get an electrician friend out to ensure you have wired it correctly.
New, adventurous splashbacks
If you are itching to revitalise your home, then consider a new splashback! There was a time when Splashbacks was merely an afterthought, but those times are well and truly over. New homeowners can’t wait to choose an adventurous splashback tile and colour palette, and existing homeowners are re-tiling their splashback to bring this area into the 21st-century. Don’t just go for the white and the cream, and choose something special like green, terracotta or maybe even a patterned tile.
If you want to do this affordably, you can try and find some reclaimed tiles by joining some renovation groups online or head to your local recycling plant to see what is there. This could make a great story if people ask what inspiration you had for your splashback, and you can say that you reclaimed them.
We hope you like the sound of these autumn trends and can find creative ways to bring them to your home at an affordable price. Be sure to let us know what creations you have success with.
