The Joys of Autumn
The Joys of Autumn
Autumn, is that you? We've been noticing the leaves starting to turn, the nights slowing drifting into darkness a little bit earlier each night, and the temperature settling into lower numbers each week. Hello October.
We thought we weren't ready for it, but actually, we really are. So here are some of our favourite ways to really make the most of Autumn and bring it into your home.
Bringing it into the home
Creating a cosy space for the colder months is an essential in our eyes. Be it with candles, fairy lights, a good blanket or some themed dinnerware (or all of the above), there are plenty of little ways to bring Autumn into your home.
We love the Emma Bridgewater apples and blackberries ranges for serving up hot crumbles or warming porridge in the morning. There's also the new Halloween ranges which are just fabulous for those upcoming Halloween parties, which, paired with some fake plush pumpkins from Talking Tables, creates a perfect Autumn/Halloween environment. For a scent to set the snuggly scene we recommend either the Vanilla Spiced Orange or Shimmering Amber candles from The Country Candle Co - they're just divine.
Autumn is a glorious time to go out for a walk. The crunchy leaves (which can often be more of a sodden, slippery texture knowing British weather), beautiful orange and gold colours everywhere, taking hot drinks with you and re-introducing colder weather accessories like a good hat or a lovely pair of gloves. These new Powder ones are such gorgeous quality and feel so soft. There's also some deliciously cosy new socks to wear in welly boots to keep your toes warm as it gets colder. And for the pumpkin spice latte? Whack it in an insulated reusable coffee cup like one of these Chilly's ones, and it'll probably still be warm when you get home.
Subtle ways to wear Halloween
Love Halloween but feel like you're a bit old to be dressing up? Why not try a slightly more subtle way of getting into the spirit by slipping some earrings in, or a brooch like one of these fabulous Erstwilder ones. Wear them with a fitting colour such as black or purple and you've got your understated nod to Halloween good to go.
