Autumn is creeping closer with the end of August finally in sight and the 1st of September looming around the corner. I know that early September can still bring the last rays of sunshine but after the Autumn equionox on 21st the days will get rapidly shorter and everything we love about Fall will be well and truly here. I love Autumn, it’s the ultimate cosy season with the warm colour tones and the return of school. Usually, I’d be a lot more excited but this has been a strange year so I’m a little apprehensive.
Some people decide to style and decorate their homes depending on the season all year around but I think our biggest changes come in the Spring and Autumn. In Autumn there are more blankets around the home, the kitchen is stocked with hot chocolate and the slow cooker is on the go with warming soups and strews. I wanted to share a few things you might want to do if you want to style your home differently for Autumn to give your home ultimate cosy vibes.
- If you have wood flooring then fluffy rugs can bring warmth and colour to a room giving a comforting and cosy vibe.
- Organise your bookshelves with the more autumnal colours on display.
- Have warm toned cushions and blankets in the living room to cosy up in after a day of work or a windy walk home from school.
- Change up your wardrobe with comfy and chunky knitwear and get wellies and boots by the door. Have slippers and dressing gowns within easy reach.
- Have some home made soup recipe books on display in the kitchen. In the autumn there is nothing better for me than homemade tomato & red pepper soup with chunky bread rolls slathered in butter.
- If you have a neutral room and the space to store things change the colours of storage boxes in the living room to autumnal tones.
- Pumpkin Spice candles are a lovely way to scent the home and woodwick ones crackle as they burn. If you have a fire place you can fill this with candles to give the illusion of a fire or a log burning stove with a basket of logs ready to throw in looks great.
- Stock up the kitchen with slow cooker ingredients for soups, stews and casseroles. This will save you time and the smells will make you feel warm and cosy.
