Candles, lamps, love: set the autumn mood with these cosy decor ideas

The summer nights may be drawing to a close, and the nights may be on the horizon, but there’s no need for dampened spirits. Those darker nights call for cosy decor, soft lighting, warm blankets and candles. Autumn also means the crunch of those luscious golden and orange leaves is back…and the spooky season is nigh.

Vintage and nature come together

Embrace the essence of autumn with a creative twist this year. Instead of relying solely on recycling, consider integrating decorative ceramic vases into your seasonal decor. These vases can often be discovered at local antique fairs, imbued with a vintage charm that resonates with the season. If your search at the fair proves unfruitful, don’t worry – these treasures are just a click away online. Transform these ceramic vases into stunning centrepieces by filling them with the vibrant flowers of autumn. This simple yet sophisticated approach will enhance any table, perfectly capturing the cosy, inviting spirit of autumn.

Autumn colours

Now that you have the perfect centrepiece for your table, it’s time to go further and brighten it up with colourful accents. Orange is the staple of autumn, so mix orange flowers with miniature pumpkins for the ultimate table runner with this in mind. However, try not to go overboard with the orange; mix in rich greenery for an organic oasis and deep velvets to retain the modern feel of the room. Gold furnishings can also make all the difference – mix and match autumn colours; you may be pleasantly surprised.

Buy candles in beautiful autumnal colours to create a warm glow and emit scents of pumpkins, sandalwood and pecan pie! Why not go one step further and create your own with DIY candle makers to get the exact candle you desire – and make a few extra for friends?

Palm imagery has been one of the hottest trends of the year, and it’s here to stay, so make autumn the season you finally implement it. There are no rules here; you can choose whether to display it on some wallpaper for a feature wall, embossed onto a vase, embroidered onto a pillow, or woven into a rug…the choices are endless. It’s the perfect trend for autumn as it’s natural and warm, and it will go perfectly with the other natural elements you have recently introduced.

Pumpkins are your best friend


Halloween may be somewhat underrated in England compared to America, but don’t let that stop you. Pumpkins here, there and everywhere can make for some pretty epic autumn decor. Paint your house number onto a pumpkin and place it outside your front door; again, simple but very effective.

You can also scoop out the flesh of the pumpkins and use them as cute vases to arrange your autumnal floral display – and if you don’t fancy fleshing out a pumpkin, there are plenty of artificial choices in the supermarkets around this time of year! Pumpkins do have far more use than soup and jack-o-lanterns. Improve your pumpkin game and carve an elegant piece to match your Pagazzi Lighting pieces.

Velvet accents

A touch of velvet has the power to instil cosiness and warmth into any room, and what better way to celebrate the fall season than with a touch of velvet? Whether this is an armchair, scatter cushion, or throw, it can make a huge difference to your living space. And orange is the perfect colour for this time of year. Complete with orange and white blossoms, your colour scheme will have guests raving.
