It can be hard to make the move from summer into autumn when it comes to our clothing choices, but when it comes to our homes? That’s a different story. In fact, the colder weather only makes our abodes more tempting, as we conjure up new and inventive ways to stay indoors and nest. When a gale force wind is blowing outside and rain is lashing at your windows, all we want to do is cancel our plans, crack open a bottle of red and snuggle up inside.
Up until now, we’ve all favoured bright and airy spaces in order to make the most of the weather whilst we’ve had it. But autumn interiors trends are all in favour of comfort, cosiness and warmth. Open windows and natural light are replaced with the gorgeously warm glow of candles or a fire; cool desktop fans are switched for central heating and where once you threw off the covers, now you're hibernating under a high tog duvet. But autumn isn’t just about combatting the cooler climate, it’s about creating a warm and fuzzy feeling - and that’s where you may fall short.
If your house didn’t quite get the new season memo, you may have a little work to do before your home has achieved it’s full ‘hygge’ potential. So how best to make the seasonal switch? It’s actually a lot easier - and cheaper - than you think. Seriously, you’ll be surprised at what a difference a well-placed ornament or a flash of autumnal colour can do to put you in the wintry mood.
Out of all of our usual affordable homeware haunts, Marks and Spencer are the brand that has caught our attention so far. Their new season collection is seriously vast, leaving no room under your roof untouched. Yup, there’s even some cool new bathroom tweaks to be had that will help to get rid of your cold-floor fear.
