Furnishing your home in the colours of autumn and winter means warmer and cosier rooms. There are several aspects that can be worked on to transform the atmosphere of a home and make it harmonious with the climate of the colder months. So you can indulge your days in the warmth, on the sofa, with a good book or a good movie, choosing the most suitable colours, accessories and furnishings.

Warm colours and décor colours: a definitive guide

Among the leading colour notes this autumn are dark colours with intense tones, which transform rooms, make them original and accentuate their strong character. For example, the darker shades of purple and blue.

On the other hand, those who prefer more delicate tones can always rely on neutral nuances and go for a powder-coloured autumnal décor, or choose a new shade such as mustard, an unsettling, intriguing and pleasing shade.
Rooms that can be significantly renovated with furniture, accessories and textiles in autumn and winter colour shades are the living room, the living room and the bedroom. In these rooms, it is a good idea to alternate the strong, intense colours suggested by furnishing trends with neutral, white or cream-coloured colour notes: this guarantees aesthetically pleasing results. In addition, it must always be remembered that strong colours need specific lighting to be highlighted, especially during afternoons and evenings. For this reason, it becomes necessary to choose the right lighting, which can be achieved with spotlights, chandeliers or free-standing lamps with warm light.

Furniture colours: the latest trends in sofas

This autumn/winter ‘s upholstery trend  is smooth velvet in plain colours. Inviting and enveloping, it is a fabric that is pleasant to the touch and to the eye, requiring some care in washing and maintenance. There will, however, be no shortage of sofas with exotic and ethnic prints, suitable for the more whimsical, but strictly in natural fibres. Obviously to be combined with cushions and furnishing accessories, preferably in bronze and gold tones.

Among colours for sofas, the 2022 trend proposes sky blue or cyan, symbolising hope in this post-pandemic period. Powder pink, grey, pearl white and neutral tones in general are alsoalways a winning option. Those who want to be daring choose shades such as magenta, petrol green,orange or  olive green

But beyond colour, it is always style that makes the difference, as in the case of the sofa Dakota by Bontempi. A true furniture system that combines the modularity of its elements with dedicated accessories. And it meets the requirements of design, comfort and functionality. The generous use of goose down inside the cushions ensures a high level of comfort, as well as giving the whole room a lively and cosy feel.

How to choose a sofa by colour

If the living area is furnished in neutral tones typical of autumn, such as dove grey, one can decide to update the furniture with a sofa in a striking colour that stands out clearly: for example, mustard, indigo blue, red or emerald green.Cushions are also fundamental in creating an autumn or winter-inspired furnishing style: cushions are a distinctive detail, a detail that allows perfect harmony with the season. The chilling weather is reflected in the autumn cushions when the colour covering them is reminiscent of the typical shades of leaves about to fall from the trees. Neutral shades of cream, grey and light brown are just as suitable to create an atmosphere that commensurate with the relaxed and cosy atmospheres of autumn and winter.
