It’s September which means it’s officially autumn season (or fall if you are in the US). Autumn is all about comfort of our homes and we all want to turn our homes into the cosiest place possible whether it’s through autumnal colours, textures, or great seasonal décor elements. With this blog post, we want to start a seasonal series on our blog where we gather and share with you our favourite Linen & Stripes cushions which we would recommend for each season. We hope this can be particularly useful if you are someone who likes to slightly switch up their home décor with each season.
Let’s start with autumn, shall we?
When we think of autumn, we think of warm colours, right? Earthy tones like green and brown, mustard, burgundy, rust / burnt orange. At Linen & Stripes, most of the time, we prefer timeless and versatile colours such as beige, white, black, or grey BUT we also like to add that little pop of colour which makes some of our cushion cover designs more suitable for a particular season, in our case; autumn.
One of our all-time favourite and signature accent colour is mustard. We offer a plain and simple mustard linen cushion cover which is an absolutely must-have if you want to add a little autumn to your living space. We also love to combine our lovely mustard eco linen with our beige and white linens to create a timeless and modern geometric design, our mustard colour block cushion cover.
For a more autumnal look, we also love to combine it with our vegan faux leather and thick patterned cream linen fabric which creates the PERFECT cosy and textural autumn vibe. Here is our Faux Leather Mustard colour block cushion cover – look at that texture!
We also have amazing cotton and wool yarns in various thicknesses which are used to add unique design details such as pom – poms, tassels, cotton lines or braid design. Here are different versions of our absolute favourite stripe designs; Mustard cover with jute stripes, White linen cover with mustard cotton lines & our Beige linen cover with Hand-stitched mustard stripes. Most of these designs are great if you want something timeless for all year round but you love a little mustard accent detail.
A slightly new accent colour of ours is this beautiful rust shade which is more towards the red/ burgundy side rather than orange. It’s quite a unique shade of colour and it definitely adds a warm and cosy vibe to any home. We have our whole signature cushion cover design range available with this colour; Plain Rust linen cushion cover, Rust colour block linen cushion cover, Faux leather rust linen cushion cover, and Rust linen cushion cover with white cotton lines.
You can also spot a special Rust linen cushion cover with eco jute stripes at our Etsy shop. The natural jute stripes are adding the perfect rustic texture to our linen fabric which in my opinion, the best autumnal combination of colour & texture.
Autumn = Earthy tones, and what could be better than the perfect shade of cappuccino brown which in my opinion, is one of the nicest shades of brown there is. This brown shade is one of our latest additions to our signature colours collection. This colour is not only beautiful for autumn, but I think, it’s the most versatile and timeless shade which you can choose so it could be perfect for all-year round as well.
4. Rich Textures
After talking about colours, I want to show you and recommend some of our cushions where we use fabrics with rich textures. As we established already, cosiness is one of our key words for this season and we can reach this cosy effect & vibe through combining various textures in our home especially when it comes to home décor.
Our ultimate cushion cover suggestion must be our Faux leather cushion covers which are available as a plain Faux leather cushion cover option or combining it with any of our signature colour shades & our textural cream linen – for autumn, we definitely suggest the Brown , Mustard or Rust option. The combination of these 3 very different textured fabrics create one of the most unique look which you won’t find anywhere else.
I hope this autumn cushion edit would be somewhat useful to you and I hope you found some inspiration for this new cosy season because it worth investing in our home which is the most special place where we can be ourselves and relax. Get those chunky, warm blankets out, a couple of beautiful & natural cushions for the ultimate comfort and enjoy the perfect autumnal evening with some tea and a good book.
