Autumn Home Styling with Kit & Co.

Like us, many of you may have been lusting after her home styling for quite some time. Megan - the incredible creative behind @kitandco_ - is here to share her top autumnal styling tips to give your home a seasonal lift. From layering techniques to seasonal must-haves, Megan is sharing her home styling genius with us.

As the temperatures begin to cool and we enjoy the beautiful fiery browns and reds of nature, it’s time to embrace the changing season. It’s a time when we naturally start thinking about our creature comforts and adding small touches within our home decor to help create a cosy homely environment for the colder months ahead. 

Add interest & texture

At this time of year, I always gravitate towards gorgeous earthy tones, Tuscan reds, deep Burgundy & rich rusty accents to create a warm and calming environment. Natural vessels like terracotta pots filled with geraniums, earthenware on the table and rattan baskets help instantly add interest and texture your home. 

The dream tablescape


Create the mood and set your table for autumn. There’s a lot to be said about a candle-lit kitchen table. Think warming autumnal stews, a crusty loaf in a rattan basket laid on a natural checked linen tablecloth, seagrass placemats and the simple addition of some beautifully woody fir scented candles. Rustic style works so well in autumn. Paired back simplicity is always best. 

Layering is key


As the temperature dips, our natural instinct is to prepare for the cold. Layering different textures is the best way to create that cosy look. A seagrass rug layered on top of your living room carpet. An indulgent bedside sheep skin rug, a beautiful bedspread layered with a chunky oversized throw to add extra warmth. And lots of squishy cushions. Mark the change in seasons with textiles to match the beautiful rich colours of autumn too and wave farewell to summer.

Simple touches go a long way


Think about decorative spaces around your home where you can add simple touches to reflect the new season. A bunch of dried flowers in rich browns and burgundy or a large bunch of preserved beech leaves in a rustic pot is one of my favourite ways to style a console table. Hydrangeas can be cut fresh and left to dry for a pretty floral display, which lasts all year round. 

Lean into seasonal styling


It wouldn’t be autumn without some pumpkin and gourd decorations! Book a trip to a pumpkin patch in October and decorate your front doorstep or create a beautifully styled seasonal entrance. The same can be applied to Christmas and Spring! The perfect welcome. 

"Enjoy settling into the cosy rustic feel of autumn and make time spent inside as comfortable as possible!"
