I'm an interior designer – the autumn trends that make your home look so cheap and tacky | The Sun

IT CAN be really fun to deck out your entire house with seasonal decorations.

There's something very cosy about adding autumnal themed cushions, blankets and art – but going over the top can ruin everything.

According to interior designer Anthony Immediato there are some trends you should avoid if you don't want your home to look cheap and tacky.

As much as it can be tempting to go all out with orange and leaf themed items, Anthony said that's a big no-no.

"I want you to think less literal than this," he quipped, showing a snap of a giant autumn wreath with leaves and pumpkins above a sign that reads 'autumn' in huge letters.

He continued: "Instead add subtle touches like colours and textures."

The interiors whizz suggested being less obvious with your design choices, opting for things that are cosy but could potentially fit into your home year round, like red candles.

Most importantly, ditch the tacky autumn cushions – do you really need a pillow with a pumpkin on it?

Anthony suggested using textured pillows to create the warm feel of autumn rather than anything too on the nose.

He added: "Take a step back from this literal faux rustic look and add in touches that make your home feel like fall, not necessarily look like fall."

However not everyone agreed with the kitsch-free options, one person said: "I see your point, but where's the fun in that?"

A second joked: "But how will we know it's fall if our pillows don't tell us?"

Another said: "I'm sticking to my tacky seasonal decor."

But one quipped: "This is the best advice I've seen."
