The seasons are changing! That's right, summer is coming to an end and autumn is hot on its heels.

OK, so the weather in Malaysia doesn't really vary all that much—here, autumn is a more of a romantic concept, not an indicator of weather change. However, though the temperature might not vary all that much, the trees still turn a russet brown, and we start lusting after all the hallmarks of fall. Cosiness suddenly becomes a priority again, and we love it.

So how do we reflect this shift in our homes? It's simple - interiors get darker, more brooding, more mysterious, even, when the days start getting shorter. Think plush textiles, ambient lighting, and off-kilter deco. Here are 14 of our favourite autumnal living rooms to help you out, inspiration-wise. Enjoy!

1. Blend creamy shades of brown and cream for moody, coffee coloured cosiness

2. Play around with rich colours and exposed brick walls for a quirky boho twist on autumnal style

That empty cola bottle print, signifying summer's end, is a nice touch.

3. Warm tawny browns are always a win in autumn. Choose tobacco and brick shades to stay ahead of the trend curve

4. Slick and modern, this minimalist living room is welcoming without being cluttered

5. Industrial style works year-round. This gorgeous open plan apartment has had an autumnal update thanks to the cute hanging star and Russian doll cushions

6. Vintage style is SO autumnal—especially when it involves chocolatey walls and olive green velour sofas!

7. Autumn style doesn't have to be bland. Take inspiration from the more colourful trees out there and choose artwork that features bright, vivid tones

8. Tiny houses are the best for comfort! The dark wooden floors and shaggy textiles in this home are ideal for welcoming in the winter months

9. Opt for chunky pillows and blankets ahoy in preparation for long dark nights snuggled up on the couch

10. A roaring fireplace is just what every home needs to get into a wintery frame of mind. Who cares if it's 28 degrees outside?!

11. A large cowskin rug creates a gorgeous hipster vibe. Keep a large supply of books on hand for artsy autumn chill evenings

12. The Scandinavians have nailed autumn/winter interiors. Their solution? Keep homes as light, bright and minimal as possible…

… but don't forget the sumptuous textiles!

13. Mix up patterns and neutrals for a cosy yet contemporary hideaway. Those geometric pillows are everthing…

14. Rusticity is the ultimate autumnal trend. Raw wood and exposed brick walls create a warm and whimsical dwelling that you'll be happy to hibernate in
