While it might still be summer, stores are starting to get in the mood for the new season, and it's a great time to start gathering inspiration for an autumn interiors update. A stylish place to start? H&M Home autumn 2020.
While the new pieces don't land online until mid-August, the brand is offering trend inspiration, and says we should celebrate timeless design by mixing classic pieces with seasonal new ones for an updated look.
For autumn, create a casual look using natural materials, design that highlights craftsmanship and a colour palette of beiges and browns along with bottle green.

Nature is important in aiming for a soft and rustic feel; expect to see stained and carved wood, dark ceramics with irregular glazing, rough weaving and rug-inspired textiles all showing tactility is key.
The countryside influences are emphasised by imagery such as autumn botanicals like kale and pumpkins and with patterns dominated by patchwork and plaid.
H&M Home Autumn 2020: Three statement pieces to incorporate into your new scheme
This autumn, H&M want to highlight the versatility of its classic pieces and show that design can be timeless even if created today. To bring these pieces up to date for autumn 2020, simply style with natural materials and textures.
1. The lounge chair
With its classic combination of wood and rattan, this lounge chair looks great in any home and became an instant hit when launched in spring 2018. With its long-lasting design it is loved by many and is set to be in the assortment for a long time ahead.
Snap it up for autumn and style with cosy textured rugs, wooden coffee tables, earthy ceramic vases and natural throws for a snug and elegant of-the-now look.
2. The sculptural vase
This circular stoneware vase comes in two sizes, and doubles as an eye-catching sculptural decoration. This classic-to-be sold out fast when launched earlier this year and design lovers will be thrilled to hear it is to make a comeback this autumn. Style it up with H&M's cool apothecary-style jar candles and dried flowers or simply leave it to speak for itself, perhaps popped on a coffee table book.

3. The linen bedding
The immensely popular linen bedding has been a true H&M Home classic since the launch back in 2009. The linen bedding comes in a wide range of colours including trendy shades specific to the season. For this autumn, opt for natural grey or greige and dress the bed with rich, russet-toned or plaid quilts and throws.
Finish with dark wood or rattan furniture and boho wall hangings for a laidback-luxe aesthetic and a tranquil sleep retreat.
