  • Knitted blanket. Cozy large knitted merino wool blanket – throw it on your couch or chair. Gentle, soft, hypoallergenic and very stylish – just what you need for an autumn interior.
  • Velvet cushion on your kivik sofa. Velvet is one of the most appropriate fabrics for the fall interior. In addition, it is currently on trend. Shiny, pleasant to the touch decorative cushions will help to create a romantic and elegant interior – a simple technique that will suit everyone.
  • Chair upholstery. From the desk chair to the dining area, from the chair to the banquette, a warm chair skin will take its place everywhere. It will keep you warm until the central heating comes on – and the interior looks super stylish with it.
  • Candles for the fireplace. With the onset of fall, you increasingly want to gather with family and friends by the fireplace. If a real fireplace in the apartment is often something out of the realm of fiction, then a decorative fireplace with lots of candles is an affordable reality. You can experiment with the shape and size of the candles placed on the cabinets.
  • Autumn leaves and flowers. The best way to make the interior more autumnal is to decorate it with autumn leaves and branches with bright berries. Place them in clear vases and arrange them on tables and dressers.
  • A cozy place to read. Autumn is a time for reading books with a compelling story. Make a cozy place to relax with your own hands: you’ll need a sofa or chaise longue, a couple of soft cushions and a plaid. Place it by the window or in a secluded corner of the living room – it will turn out perfect.
  • Decorative Vase. Decorate your home with decorative vases of different sizes and shapes. Put a few small branches in them, and leave the rest empty. Such a composition will look great on the dining and work table, on the coffee table and bedside table.

And the mysterious semi-dark lighting of the room will make it magical and romantic.

You can use anything you like: cardboard, wire, unusual bottles, cans, colored paper, street finds and more. Showing imagination and manual labor, you can get absolutely charming and original lamps that will cheer up the rainiest and rainy autumn day.
