How to Choose the Best Linen Colours for Fall

The long, hot summer may be a distant memory but we’re in for an even more beautiful Fall than usual thanks to all that sunshine. As leaves absorb greater concentrations of colour pigments during prolonged sunny weather, the trees should put on an amazing display of reds, oranges and yellows this year. Hedgerows are already thick with berries, rose hips are swelling and recent winds have begun to blow the leaves across pavements and gardens. To mark the natural rhythms of the year we’ve got some gorgeous linen homewares to welcome in the new season. Here’s how to choose the best linen colours for Fall.

Red tones

To mirror the rich reds of the acer trees and ruby-toned autumnal berries, choose linen from the red colour spectrum. Whilst bright red might be too much for bedlinen, it works brilliantly as an accent colour. Think coral linen bags or a bold linen scarf to pep up your Fall wardrobe. For the table you could choose a vintage-inspired red stripe linen table runner, or a set of perfectly imperfect linen napkins in cherry.

Sunny yellows

As the days get shorter and we see less of the sun, bring some cheerful yellows and mustards into your colour scheme. Our charming linen cross-back apron in citrine will instantly brighten up your day and is perfect for homely baking sessions and cooking for a crowd. Yellow cushions also look great against grey or navy furniture, and will add a pop of colour into a Scand-inspired minimalist home.

Zesty oranges

As leaves turn from red to yellow there’s often a glorious orange stage that reminds us of the warmth of summer sun but also of the flames of winter bonfires. Reflect these fiery orange shades in your home with a set of our super-absorbent linen bath towels in tangerine. Perfect for adding some colour and richness to your bathroom or guest room. A wool throw in a rust colourway will keep things snug and cosy all through fall and winter.

Earthy, jewel colours

Take inspiration from earthy browns, ochres, greys and jewel-like purples and burgundy. Brown is having a bit of a moment, and brings a lovely calm, grounded feel to a space. Think subtle brown cashmere throws to drape over your sofa, or a sumptuous linen bedlinen set in wine to cosy-up your bedroom. A taupe stonewashed linen tablecloth adds an easy elegance to a table, inspired by autumnal forest mushrooms and the colour of sand on a windswept winter beach.

Whether your decor is neutral and calm or bold and bright, adding a few fall colours not only keeps your home in step with the patterns of the natural world, it adds depth and texture to any palette. These colours also work brilliantly together, complementing and enhancing each other. Time to start hunkering down and getting your home cosy.
