After another epic summer, we are moving into autumn. This beautiful season brings with it amazing shades of red, brown, and yellow. If you are looking to wow your friends with your terrace layout, you’ve come to the right place, as we make a few suggestions to create a warm and inviting autumn ambience.
Thick wool rugs
Lay out a few thick pile wool rugs in burgundy or a dark brown, which contrasts well with the decking. Plus, the thick wool adds texture and depth to the space, making it homely and inviting. Rugs also keep your feet warm as the mercury starts to drop and a vigorous beating every day keeps them clean.
Rattan outdoor furniture
There’s nothing more rustic than rattan furniture. Check out the cheap outdoor furniture, such as those outdoor tables for sale, from your local outdoor furniture supplier. A strong aluminium frame is covered with resin-protected rattan that looks great and stands the test of time. There are some stunning shades in their catalogue and why not order everything you need from a single online supplier, with free delivery. An online outdoor furniture website has a varied list of outdoor items, all top brands and with lower than retail prices, you save money. Of course, if they are located near you, you can visit their venue and walk around and experience furniture in outdoor settings.
Inject some green
A few tropical indoor plants with broad green leaves will surely make the space feel more natural. Browse with Google Images for a great selection, then search by plant species to find a nursery that will ship the plants to your home address. Ferns are very attractive in long, thin vases and surfing the web should give you all the inspiration you need.
A couple of large vases half filled with long dried grass would enhance any terrace. A light yellow/beige colour gives you the autumn fade that we all love. If you don’t have a nursery nearby, you can find online suppliers of Pampas and other dried grass and flowers.
Floor level yellow lighting creates an autumn glow. With dimmer switches, you can fine tune the illumination. LED fixtures are very creative as well. Search a lighting retailer’s store, where you’ll find endless styles and colours.
Dried flowers and leaves
A couple of plates laden with ears of corn and dried flowers will add a touch of pre-winter. Place one on the bar and one on the coffee table would be ideal. These small details are pleasing to the eye. Feel free to look for other ways to introduce dried leaves and flowers as well.
Consider a side screen
You could have a cool nature backdrop on a custom roller blind, which is cosy when the evenings start to get shorter. Either a single colour or an abstract allows you to add seasonal attributes, while green is a favourite.
With a little creativity and online suppliers, you can make your terrace look like it belongs in the autumn we are about to meet. Think texture and rich natural shades and you can’t really go wrong.
