Indulge yourself this autumn with a trend that is both comforting and colourful. Just because we're edging towards, dare we mention it, the season of darker evenings and colder climes, it doesn't mean that we have to dull our lives down. Instead, we suggest you do the opposite and create more colour around your home.

The Bracken trend, with its distinctively cheerful palette of ochre, burnt orange and rich forest green, will help you create an uplifting vibe at home.

Bracken encompasses everything we love about autumn months. The hues mirror the turning of the autumn leaves and their natural tones. Picking up on some classic check and casual mock-tartan patterns along the way, the end result is a homely and heartwarming look for your home, which draws on country cottage and woodland inspiration.

We highlight the key points to consider so you can easily recreate the Bracken trend at home.

Creating an autumnal bedroom

Bedding sets

One of the quickest and easiest ways to give your bedroom a refresh is to pick up some new bedding. Simple, yet very effective. But instead of just opting for one bedding set, we recommend you consider buying two. One word - layering.

It's the on-trend approach to soft furnishings and textiles, and the bedroom makes for the best setting to showcase your trend awareness, right?

Mix a plain set and a check set together for added interest, the 2 Pack Bracken Check Bed set is perfect for this. There's nothing quite like the feeling of sinking into fresh bedding.

Chunky knit throw

Embrace that log cabin look with some textile accessories to snuggle up with. What could be more homely than a selection of favourite throws to wrap up and relax in. With Bracken, it's all about the rich tones of the yellow ochre Knitted Pom Pom throw and orange Super Soft Fleece throw.

Forest rug

To complete your bedroom refresh, consider something new for underfoot. A thick pile rug, such as the Cross Hatch rug creates an added layer of comfort (and warmth) to the room. Rugs are an all-too-often overlooked element of any redesign, but they are a great way of adding extra colour, not to mention a clever cover-up if you're tired of the flooring underneath, or simply can't justify tackling a new fitted carpet.


Checkmate chair

The Ultimate accessory when creating a country cabin atmosphere?

We think it might just be this, a check tartan armchair.

It has an inviting charm about it, making you just want to sit down and read or even fall fast asleep.

If you're not a fan of tartan , or perhaps don't feel brave enough to buy it in this print, then have a browse of our other sofas and armchairs which come in several designs and see which one might take your fancy.


Cushion collection

Bracken is full of fun possibilities, especially when it comes to selecting a new cushion collection. From lovely plain fabrics to quirky rabbit character and handsome mock tartan print, you can afford to be eclectic here as placing several designs together highlights the collection's charm.

Mix a colourful collection together of rusty reds and rich green knitted covers and display them on your sofa, armchair or bed.

Top of our wish list are the Mr Rabbit and Knitted Pom Pom cushions.


Rustic dining

Update your dinnerware with a selection of tabletop treats and invite some friends and family over for Halloween. Bracken is the perfect trend for the spooky occasion, thanks to that key orange colour pop, and there's some new rustic-look crockery and tableware to tie in with the theme, too.

The 12 piece green reactive dinner set is finished in a classic country pale green, with the Amsterdam dining table acting as a sleek and sturdy backdrop.



Woodland-inspired accessories

Ceramics really enhance this trend, especially the cute Novelty Fox pot with its zingy orange glaze. Try a mix-and-match technique and embrace a little bit of randomness.

Select vases in different sizes (as difference creates interest) and display them on top of a windowsill, shelf or sideboard unit. You can add to your collection as and when you want.
