In my house it’s perpetually Autumn. I take a lot of decor inspiration from the great outdoors and as a fan of British wildlife, have a lot squirrel, fox, pheasant and deer-printed cushions and knick-knacks scattered about. The colour-palette of my living room is very warm featuring shades of brown, rust orange, green and copper.
Each year I like to add a few new pieces to the living room to keep it feeling fresh and interesting. I also dig out last years candles and put away my Spring/Summer scents. Today I thought I’d share a really small (but perfectly formed) Autumn homeware haul and explain how I personally like to decorate for the season.
During the Autumn and Winter months nothing makes me feel cosier than lighting candles – the warm glow and seasonal scents make home feel like a safe haven, protected from the wind and rain.
Every year in September I start my candle hunt in earnest. I love all the traditional ‘Autumnal’ type of scents – think cinnamon, gingerbread, toffee and pumpkin. And so whenever I’m in any kind of store that sells homewares, I keep my eyes peeled for candles that might tick the boxes. This year I managed to pick up some really lovely scents, so thought I would share them with you!
If you weren’t aware that Gareth and I just recently bought our first house, then where have you been hiding?! It’s literally all I have been talking about for a month. Anyway, it’s been a week now and although we have lived together for coming up to three years, we are still finding ourselves needing bits and bobs around the house.
At the weekend we decided to pop in to B&M and pick up some bargains for the house. I thought I would share them with you in the form of a mini haul.
