Autumn

Cooler temperatures call for cosying-up indoors with earthy tones from the
Grounded trend. This palette invites us to embrace biscuity neutrals and muted
accents inspired by nature. Rejuvenate your nursery or kids’ bedrooms with a
touch of texture and nostalgic warmth led by Dulux Colour Forecaster and Interior
Designer, Bree Leech.

Start nesting for autumn with calm and comforting neutrals.

“It’s important not to add too much clutter to a child’s room - you want to give them space to relax and play. We left plenty of breathing space and kept the sheer linen curtains to allow soft light to filter in.” — Bree Leech, stylist


Warm up to minimalism

The Grounded palette reflects our desire to simplify and slow-down. Warm white and putty tones make for a versatile base, while elements of terracotta, soft clay, and lavender add warmth and personality. Relaxed yet sophisticated, this trend is perfect for those who favour a less-is-more approach.

Sentimental style

Children need plenty of room to play and grow. Resist the urge to fill the space with clutter. Instead, accessorise with family heirlooms and flea-market finds for character with a hint of nostalgia.

Layer on the cosy colours 

While the space had great existing features, including high-ceilings and a fireplace; the all-white palette made it feel a little uninviting. We restored warmth to the room by layering nature-inspired tones, trimmed with soft clay, soft grey and touches of coral bedding.
