Autumn is just around the corner, which is a great excuse to add some stylish new-season touches to your home (and don't worry, these quick and easy updates can all be done without opening a can of paint).

As the days get shorter and the temperatures get colder, your home becomes a cosy, toasty haven where you can curl up on the sofa, snuggle under your bed sheets and get cooking in the kitchen.

The summer months have been about embracing your outdoor space and keeping things light, bright and airy; for autumn, you want your space to exude warmth and comfort.

While the right colours do play a role (it's all about moody jewel tones and shades that mimic the gorgeous changing leaves outside), you don't need a can of paint to add an autumnal touch to a room - the right accessories, furniture pieces and display items can make all the difference.

When it comes to fabrics, texture is key (think chunky knits, plush velvets and weaves) and prints can also change the mood from summery to autumnal: tartans, nature-inspired foliage and bold geometric patterns are all eye-catching ways to spruce up your space.
