Hey everyone, I hope you are all enjoying your week. It has felt very autumnal recently and now we are right in the midst of my favourite season, I thought i’d share some tips, ideas and inspiration to bring a little of this heartwarming and enchanting season into our homes. Just like I enjoy freshening things up in the spring, I equally if not more, enjoy making our home feel a little cosier come the autumn. Our home is full of crisp whites and also some neutral tones/ materials (my partner works with wood, so needless to say it features quite heavily within our home) and so adding in those warmer tones during this season helps to enhance what’s already there.
I think adding warmth to our home doesn’t always have to mean oranges and reds and as a suggestion you could opt for natural beiges as another stylish alternative. Take the dried fox tails (pictured below) for example Or the faded burgundy eucalyptus, either would make an autumnal impact whilst also keeping a sense of simplicity. And the beige wool blanket further down the post is also a wonderfully gentle and understated approach to invite the warm tones of Fall into your home. You can also add warmth by bringing more candles into your living space. You could opt for non scented ones that are a little richer in colour, like the ones photoed above or you could choose a scented candle to convey a warming and welcoming aroma within your home.
Another great way to create a cosy autumnal atmosphere, is to focus a little more of your attention on textures. Think about how in the spring and summer months its crisp cottons and light linens that work perfectly for those warmer months but in the autumn/winter focus on wools, shearling (real or faux) and where you can, always buy responsible with regards to materials that come from sheep or any animals for that matter.
I’d also like to add that you don’t have to spend any money if you aren’t able too, you can always take inspiration from nature and maybe do a small and a thoughtful amount of foraging and bring a little of the outside in. When you are on your walks, keep an eye out for some dried out stems, conquers or pinecones that have dropped onto the floor as this is a light and easy way to create a little corner of autumn in any part of your home.
I hope you enjoyed todays post. Sending you love and light and of course wishing you a warm and cosy autumn,
