How to create a luxurious Autumn 2022 interiors vibe for your orangery or conservatory

6th October 2022

Autumn is many people’s favorite season, and it’s not difficult to appreciate why.

With the explosion of colour from the trees turning all different shades of red, brown, and yellow, it’s a time when we are reminded about the beauty of nature and the outdoors.

Autumn colour palette 2022

This Autumn 2022, there is a big trend of bringing the outside ‘in’ with rich earthy colours featuring in the pages of glossy magazines as this season’s must-have trend.

This warm colour palette is great for injecting a feeling of warmth, colour and cosiness to orangeries and conservatories, especially if they’re an older design and feel quite cool in the winter.

Layering velvet or waffle throws in deep berry colours, soft cream boucle cushions, and faux fur and shagpile rugs can transform the coldest of rooms into a warming and inviting space.

Go for natural materials

Natural materials like rattan and cork feature heavily in the Autumn interiors trends, and their muted brown tones also add warmth and are reminiscent of nature and the outdoors.

Designers are throwing together different materials, patterns and colours in their Autumn designs, which are heavily reflected in what’s available in the High Street for 2022.

For example, Maison  Rustic has a great range of cork and rattan accessories, such as these placemats (pictured, above); and B and M have a fabulous selection of rattan and cork, from side tables to lamps and vases (B and M table pictured below).

Upcycle your furniture for a fresh designer look on a budget

Cane furniture was big in the 70s and 80s, and was always the go-to for conservatory furnishings.

The good news for anyone still hanging onto their cane furniture sets, is that cane is currently seeing a big comeback, and your vintage pieces may well now be the envy of your style-conscious friends and family.

If you want to upcycle your old furniture, or indeed, buy upcycled, there are plenty of tips online for achieving the latest designer look.

A quick browse of Facebook Marketplace could see you finding an absolute steal.

With a lick of multi-purpose paint and recovering of any tatty cushions, your furniture will look as good as new.

Add accessories but do not over-clutter your space

Designers use mirrors and vases to add interest to a space but warn against over-cluttering a space, which waters down the overall impact and detracts from key pieces of furniture or decorative objects.

Rugs, lamps, cushions and throws all add comfort, luxury and cosiness.

Use bold colours

Go bold or go home. This season’s trends are also focusing on dark blues and greens. Despite conservatories having limited wall space, you can still dabble with colour by painting the walls beneath the windows, and adding colourful rugs and cushions.

There is more scope for decorating orangery walls, and the expanse of glass will avoid the room becoming too dark if you opt for deep emerald greens and navy blue hues. We love this shade from Graham and Brown!


Decorating a new or existing room is an exciting opportunity to let your imagination run wild. Don’t be afraid to go with your gut instincts. It’s your room, so do what you like and enjoy creating your own perfect haven.
