I’ve always been one of those that changes with the seasons, be it clothing or decor, and right now I’m in the midst of putting away my summer clothes, and taking out my winter ones. In our home the throws and cushions become a bit chunkier and more autumnal in colour. The fairy lights go on earlier in the day, and maybe more candles are lit together with a few other changes.
So let me show you a few ways, that I bring this cosy season into our home.
Firstly our mantle always gets an update, and this sign that I made a few years ago and framed, comes out for the season.
I usually change my floral arrangements too, more heathers come into the house rather than pretty flowers.We have a horse chestnut tree in our local church, so on our bear walks I’m forever collecting them, and once they’re washed and dried, I pile them into hurricane vases and use them to surround candles.
Each year, I try and find a little something to add to my collection. I’d rather they were more autumn inspired than Halloween, and I was lucky to find this cute little mouse with a pumpkin in HomeSense, which is now turning into one of my favourite decor shops.Those elusive white pumpkins I’m seeing on everyones instagram feed are always on my list, but so far no luck, I’m thinking I may try growing them in the allotment for me next year, but you never know, if I find them before, you may see another autumn decor post on here.
