it is now officially autumn for us here in the u.k. and i couldn't be more delighted!
there's something extra special about autumn for me. it's hands down my favourite season of them all - and i long for it all year round. chunky knitted jumpers, hot chocolate, golden leaves and crisp, fresh air.
whether you're a lover of autumn or not, here's 5 easy ways you can welcome autumn into your home this year to really gear you up for the winter festivities!
update your bedding
as the nights get colder it's time to bring out the thicker duvet and update those sheets! i love this heritage country birds duvet set from worldstores.co.uk , its reminiscent of long walks in the woods amongst nature and crisp orange leaves .. just add a soft faux fur or chunky knitted throw for extra cosiness!
bring in some rustic textures and colours
update your rooms with some nature inspire accessories and objects. think woods and natural fibres - this woven basket from www.maisonsdumonde.com would look fantastic filled with chunky knitted blankets and soft cushions perfect for when you want to snuggle up on the sofa with a good movie!
burn a candle
there is nothing more comforting than coming indoors from the fresh, crisp air to the smell of warm woods and fresh fruit. this warm autumn evening jar candle from www.yankeecandle.co.uk fits the bill!
bring the outside in
bring some nature home with you after a long walk in the outdoors! pick up some pine cones to make a centerpiece feature for your coffee table, bring some leaves to press or if you're not so crafty why not purchase a gorgeous seasonal wreath like this one from meldrummade
discover a new soup recipe
this year we've been growing tomatoes - i don't know much about growing fruit and veg, but our tomatoes seem to be thriving now that it's getting colder.. is that normal? either way, i'm personally not a fan of tomatoes in my sandwiches, but i LOVE homemade tomato soup. there are literally tons of delicious recipes on the bbcgoodfood.co.uk website. i'll definately be making use of the slow cooker again this year!
so are you ready to say goodbye to summer and hello to autumn?
