As the days begin to get shorter and we start swapping our summer dresses for cosy cashmere jumpers - we get ready to welcome Autumn in with open arms. The fires are lit, the leaves are crunching underfoot, and we’ve been dreaming up ways that we can get our homes ready for Autumn.
French Bed Linen
When we think of Autumn, we think of cosying up in bed with a hot chocolate, reading our favourite book and having the fire lit. The warmth of summer is gone, and there is nothing nicer than putting some new cosy French bed linen onto your bed. From bed spreads to new duvets and sets, there is no better way to get ready for Autumn than to treat yourself to something warm and stylish. We absolutely love our Amortie Luxury Quilted Bed Linen Set in Emerald Green. The luxurious French bed linen is the perfect Autumnal set. Its velvet quilt makes it ultra cosy for those colder nights, and the emerald colour is just gorgeous.
We absolutely love candles, and Autumn lends itself perfectly to filling your room with season inspired scents. The most sublime way of making your home feel extra snug and cosy, as well as filling the air with autumn notes. Why not try a pumpkin spice or amber scent – we particularly love Jo Malone’s dark Amber & Ginger Lily Home Candle – the perfect Autumn accessory for your home.
Who says that wreaths are only for Christmas? Autumnal wreaths are a great accessory for your home at this time of year. We love creating wreaths with pumpkins and pinecones, which you can place anywhere inside your home, not just on the front door. The rustic tones create a warm and cosy feel. We also really like the idea of creating smaller wreaths to wrap around dining chairs too, for something a little different.
Although blankets are great at keeping us warm in the colder months, they are also a perfect house accessory too. They look great draped over the edge of sofas, your luxury French bed, or even a pouffe. Our incredibly soft Cottontail Throw is ultra snug, and as well as looking great – it is the ideal companion on a cold Autumn night! If you are looking for something a little chunkier, we absolutely love our cosy wide knit blanket, which looks beautiful draped across your luxurious French bed.
There is something about pinecones that we absolutely love within the home, especially in Autumn. You can place them in a vase on their own and display them on the mantel piece, or on top of your French chest of drawers. There is something magical about fairylights at any time of year, but we love the idea of intertwining your pinecones with them for an ultra rustic, cosy feel. You can even spray your pinecones golds and silvers – or something to match your colour scheme!
Adding Autumn inspired coloured cushions can really add to the cosiness of your home. We particularly love navies, greens, burnt oranges and reds or if you’re feeling brave – why not try a bold pattern? A couple of our favourites for Autumn are our Essence Velvet Cushion and the Ikari Blue Embroidered Luxury Boudoir Cushion.
