Since starting Styling the Seasons I have become so much more aware of changes I make at home with the change of each season; subtle tweaks and additions that make my home feel cosier, warmer and more comforting. I like to add more layers, textures, textiles and light around my home to make longer evenings and colder days more bearable (I have to admit that I love the cold weather, especially cosied up in my triple glazed flat!).
I have carefully picked out some perfect Autumnal items from the mid-season Houseology sale; the perfect excuse to add a touch of seasonal love to your home and make the transition to the colder months that lie ahead. Lots of these gorgeous homewares are reduced by 50%!
I’m not really into traditional Autumnal colours so I have chosen lots of soft neutrals, raw wood, wicker and some blue highlights (I’m thinking about making changes to my sitting room and adding more blue, so a bit of a selfish choice!). How gorgeous is that raw oak console table? Ideal for an Autumnal hallway to store muddy wellies – a daily problem for us due to muddy dog walks – and display some lovely nature finds. Layering and textures are so important to make a home feel cosy and so heaps of throws, blankets and cushions are a great choice. A set of baskets to store extra blankets is also a must in my house – I always have a blanket when I watch TV or read in bed. Cooking and entertaining is a big feature at this time of year, I suppose we invite friends round a lot more because we can’t spend as much time outside. That’s why I have picked a beautiful linen apron, enamel mixing bowls and a serving platter, perfect for a bit of Autumnal cooking and entertaining. I also love the Tonfisk tea and coffee set, designed to keep your hot drinks warm and the wooden covers enable you to wrap your hands around the cups and warm your hands: perfect for working from home to have on your desk. Another really great thing to buy when they are on sale are quality mattress toppers that will make your bed feel so much more snuggly and warm. I want it all and it’s so tempting at such low prices!
