Room Recipe: Pumpkin Spice Latte Aesthetic

You know autumn has well and truly arrived when coffee shops start selling pumpkin spice lattes. This internet-famous drink dominates social media, billboards and menu boards for months – with good reason. Spicy and sweet, a PSL is autumn in a cup, conjuring up images of chunky-knit jumpers, flickering candle flames, red leaves and crisp air. Unsurprisingly, people love the taste of pumpkin spice lattes and the feeling of comfort it embodies. So why not extend its warmth to your home décor?

How to create a cosy pumpkin spice latte aesthetic in your home

Pinch some spice and style from the seasonal drink and infuse some autumn home décor into your space with these design tips.

Natural base ingredients

The base of a pumpkin spice latte is a root vegetable and lots of natural spices, so our first tip is to stick to this recipe. Organic elements like wooden flooring, rattan lights and jute rugs are all shades we love to see: beige but not boring. Soft and natural elements help to warm up an inviting space that you can cosy into once the nights draw in.

A dose of burnt orange

Sitting somewhere between fiery red and vivid pumpkin orange is the burnt orange hue of this sofa. It truly looks the autumnal part. But, more than that, orange has staying power; this button-tufted L-shaped sofa will stand the test of time, seeing you through all seasons. And it’s splendid, isn’t it? We can hear it calling to us now, waiting for us to squish into it – with a mug of pumpkin spice latte in hand, of course.

Sprinklings of copper hues

Autumn is all about warm, comfy spaces, and when you use brassy golds or copper accents, this look is very easy to achieve. These metallics pair beautifully with other warm, autumnal colours, whether your palette is bright and bold, or calm and neutral. The warmth of this copper roll top bathtub is magnificent, complementing the pink walls and grand chandelier. If you can’t spring for a rose gold-hued tub, cosy up your bathroom with copper taps, towel railings and light fixtures. The more patinaed, the better.

Colour palettes that include orange, brown, taupe and cream are synonymous with autumn. For a PSL aesthetic, go for a warm cream on the wall with plenty of browns and oranges in the décor (we particularly love this textured vase and enamel dishes). You can even up the ante with hints of red to bring in some toasty cinnamon spice. You can’t go wrong with this wholesome tone that is sure to warm up any space.

Decorate cosier outdoor areas

As the weather turns a little crisper, don’t neglect your patio and garden. These outdoor spaces can become cosy hideaways come autumn with just the simple addition of throws, blankets and cushions (meaning you can enjoy your patio furniture for longer). Since outdoor autumn home accessories are so popular, you’ll find many of these items are made with fabrics designed to withstand the elements.

Spice up your autumn home décor

Autumn is a great time to transition from bright and lively summer-inspired décor into a moodier, cosier vibe. Even if you’re not into the spooky decorations, there are many ways to integrate autumn home trends into every room of the house, creating that comforting pumpkin spice latte aesthetic we love.
