Rather than buying new furniture this season why not make over what you currently have with an autumnal vibe?

Here are a few ways to revitalise for interiors supplied by the team at paint company Rust-Oleum.


Turn your home into a calming space with a combination of sky shades. Throw caution to the wind with darker undertones like inky blues or start by lifting key pieces with lighter displays of colour. Airy tones like duck egg are great for transforming darker woods before distressing to give a vintage appeal.

Keeping it natural

When the colder months set in, you can’t always enjoy the great outdoors as much as you’d like to, but you can bring the foliage indoors with new paint scenes. Your home can feel like a tropical paradise even when the wind is howling outside by using botanicals on your walls and lush shades of emerald green to give depth to your interior accessories.

Time to escape

Light, minimal shades are great for those craving a fresh space to escape and relax in. Swap summer pastels for sophisticated greys to embody clean serenity.

Heavy metallics

We see the trend return every year, from dipped chair legs to hanging lamps, warm metallics like gold and copper are everywhere – especially as the festive season grows ever closer.

For larger items and geometric prints, when precision is key, use Rust-Oleum Metallic Finish Furniture Paint in gold or silver and for smaller furnishings mask off any areas not to be painted before covering them with Rust-Oleum Metallic Spray Paint, available in six luxe sheens.
