Down to earth: How to create a cosy autumnal farmhouse

Escape to the quaint English countryside and create a romantic ambiance on cosy autumnal evenings. The traditional farmhouse style is seeing a resurgence in a more contemporary format: moving away from shiplap and natural oak stains to curated spaces with contemporary accessories and an industrial edge. 

Our thoughtfully curated English Farmhouse collection embraces the quirky and cosy essence of the countryside with eclectic furniture, woven throws, comfy armchairs and accent pieces that add the final touches.

Comfort is key

The fundamentals to make the most inviting Cotswold cottage starts with comfort: Plush textiles like boucle, velvet and leather, linen and thick fleece throws. This creates a warm family space with a relaxed atmosphere that keeps in the heat on those colder autumn evenings.

Take our chunky Ava Linen Armchair for a cosy reading nook and pair with our white cotton cushion and our rustic Birchwood Cheshire Sideboard.


Natural Colour Palette

Taking inspiration from the clean and neutral colours of Scandi style, the modern farmhouse palette combines neutrals with natural colours that symbolises harmony and blurs the lines of outside and inside. 

Start with a base of white, grey and brown and pair with warm woods with hints of beige, terracotta and redwood.

These warm hues elevate the mood of a room as it radiates joy and warmth, and are great for boosting active spaces like the living room area.

Urban twist

For a more modern and raw impression, use rustic elements that imitates urban city living like exposed brickwork and pipelines. In particular, the use of rust and stone looking materials helps balance a neutral home with cooler tones that adds a coarseness. 

Start with smaller accents that are not too overpowering like our Gilford bronzed mirror or our Kirby nested side tables that counterbalances the foundation of cosy furniture and warm colours.


Something old, something new

Finally, make a space yours by adding character that reflects personality. What makes the English Country Home attractive is the emphasis on uniqueness and personality. 

Showcase the family antiques and wedding china contrasted against bold animal prints to wicker baskets and sparkling crystal - anything goes with a truly personalised space!
