Autumn is my favourite season and it is almost here which makes me feel very excited and all cosy! Autumn is my favourite season for so many reasons but one of them is all of the cosy homeware; I love all of the hygge homeware such as candles, throws, cushions and fairylights. I love switching up my homeware and decor at this time of the year and thankfully the colour scheme of my house is fairly neutral so a range of decor designs and shades usually match well.

We all have those shades that we love for interior design ideas and homeware, whether you're a fan of bright and colourful shades, a monochrome lover or are you are like me and love all of the natural shades and textures. My favourite homeware shades have to include all shades of cream, grey, blush pink and natural shades/textures. This post has been created in collaboration with Julian Charles for the #ColourYourPersonality campaign.

My personality is fairly anxious and I tend to always overthink everything so I find that cosy interiors and spending time in nature very calming and homely to me so I like to use those shades and texture within my home. I love neutral shades as to me they are very clean, easy to pair with various decor items and easy to maintain. Creamy and off white shades are my the perfect base shades which I have in my home office, kitchen and hallway.

I do generally prefer lighter shades to darker shades as I want every room to look bright and clean but also homely and for me, only lighter shades can really achieve that; however I do like to add some lighter to darker greys around the house in the form of cushions, carpets, worktops or lighting.

Blush Pink
My favourite shade, which is definitely apparent if you look through the photos on my blog and my social media (I'm @ofbeautyand on Twitter and @ofbeautyand on Instagram), is blush pink. The combination of lighter greys, cream, rose gold or copper and blush pink is the blogger dream colour palette! Blush pink shades are just so cosy to me and I love pinky shades in cushions, bedding, blankets and decor such as vases and candles. I would absolutely love a blush pink feature wall too!

Unusual Textures 
Last but not least, while I adore more matte, flatter and neutral shades, I like to add unusual textures to that colour scheme for some interest and dimension. I have various items around the house that add a unique texture such as my faux mother of peal and metal lamp shade, twisted rope hanging light, shiny rose gold accents, knitted blankets and wooden textures.

Do you have a favourite homeware shade or colour family?
