Autumn is here, and with it comes cosy knits, a warm colour palette, and a change in décor. We’re starting to reach for blankets on chilly evenings, and the log burner takes centre stage once more. Check out our ideas for how to introduce autumn into your home this season.
Fall décor can be as simple as adding a splash of autumn colour to your home. Faux foliage that imitates the changing leaves outside can be a low-key but effective way to incorporate autumn in your home, coupled with candles on a mantel above your cosy wood burning fire.
One easy way to bring autumn into your living room is to mimic the textures you see outside. If you own a wood burner, this can be done by making sure your firewood is on display. The natural fibres of the logs bring another layer of interest into the room, and can even be placed in wicker baskets for even more texture!
Perhaps now is the time for an entirely new look in your home. Autumn décor does not necessarily need to always follow a farmhouse or country vibe. Take this glossy black gas log burner for example. Deep navy walls, pops of gold and comforting warm brown chairs all complement an otherwise very contemporary fireplace, giving the feeling of luxury and opulence that’s chic yet cosy. Alternatively, embrace all the warm colours of an autumn colour palette by swapping out textile accessories for oranges, ochres and browns.
If you don’t have a wood burner in your home, perhaps this autumn is the time to get one installed! The first thing you will want to consider is the fuel type, and the style you are looking for. Would you like real living flames? Or the convenience of gas and electric models? Whichever fuel type you choose, when you purchase a Stovax or Gazco model there is no compromise on the performance, design, and fireside ambience.
Electric fires and stoves can be installed with much less building work than their real log burner or gas counterparts, requiring only connection to the mains to function. Freestanding stoves, like the Gazco Chesterfield 5 electric, can be simply placed in the location that you desire. Paired with cosy cushions and blankets, this electric log burner makes just as much of an autumnal centrepiece as gas or solid fuel.
Alternatively, if a real wood burner is what you’d really like installed, this brings with it a natural sense of autumn-winter, without needing to do much more than sit back, relax, and enjoy the evening glow of your fire!
If you like the look of any of these autumnal homes, and want a wood burner, gas log stove or an electric fireplace in your home, the best place to purchase is always through a trusted local retailer. From a site survey to installation, they’ll take care of the whole process for you. Find your nearest retailer at stovax.com/retailers.
