People Across The Country Are Breaking out Their Cold Weather Clothing

As the last remnants of summer fade into the autumn and the leaves begin to transform from green to stunning shades of red and gold,it's not just the trees that are changing their appearance.People across the country are breaking out their cold weather clothing and signs of autumn and winter fashion can be seen everywhere you turn.

Of course,it's not just our clothing that changes this time of year.Many people may also be thinking about a change in their home decor.For example,that brightly coloured feature wall that seemed so apt back in the spring may seem bright and garish for the season-perhaps a warmer earthy tone might be more suitable now.

According to Pat Elliot,an interior designer who writes a weekly column in Scotland on Sunday:"While we may not change our home decor as frequently as we change the contents of our wardrobes,fashion trends offer a reliable indicator of what is hot in interiors."

Strong but subtle mixes and patterns are both very popular this year and they help to create an individual and relaxed feeling in a home.Pat says that retro florals and geometrics continue to be popular,but they have been toned down with muted tones and splashes of vivid colours like bright blue and lime green.

In addition to a colour palette of natural shades,Ms Elliot recommends anyone thinking about re-decorating their home to opt for eco-friendly materials."This suggests a final farewell to bland minimalism and the introduction of original style notes,"she explains.Recycled and upcycled furnishings are one option,while handmade goods are also on trend.

It certainly seems that green living is becoming more mainstream for those looking to add some eco-design to their homes might want to consider patchwork quilts made from recycled fabrics or papering a feature wall with old book illustrations.

And make sure your home is as environmentally friendly as it looks by installing energy efficient lighting throughout your property.Products like LED ceiling lights and low voltage downlights will help to illuminate your home as the days get shorter without using too much electricity.Plus they can help keep your utility bill to a minimum.
