Cosy Up Your Home For Autumn

Autumn Is Here, It's Time To Cosy Up

I personally love this time of the year. It’s cosy, the fire is on, the blankets are out, and most importantly the hot chocolates are flowing! But it’s no secret that we’ve all spent A LOT of time at home this year, and no one would blame you for being a bit sick of your own house. Luckily autumn gives us the chance to change the aesthetic of your whole home. Here’s how you can change to comfy and cosy up your home for autumn in 3 simple steps.

Embrace some new colours

We aren’t suggesting redecorating or changing the colour scheme of your home, but a splash of something new never hurt. Touches of warm colours look great featured in your home, gold, rust, red, orange and yellow really lift the mood and bring in that special autumn touch,

Hunt down an autumnal coloured cosy blanket and style it in your home. A large blanket or throw can be layered over your sofa or bed and could even be paired with a couple of new cushions. The best thing about a new throw is that it doesn’t only look pretty, it’s in a great location for if you’re feeling a little chilly.

There is tons of inspiration online for autumn furnishings, decorations and mood boards. I love this colour palette I found on Pinterest. Find it here on our Autumn Pinterest Board.

Create an Autumn Display

For the creatives, Autumn is a chance to make some seasonal crafts and decorate your home with your own handiwork. One of my favourite things about the internet and social media is seeing creativity all over, remember we love to see what our followers are up to, we’d love to see your autumn crafts and decorations and how you use them to cosy up your home this autumn.

We found some great ideas for crafts over on Good Housekeeping, why not have a look?

We also know that not everyone has the time or a passion for crafts, which is okay, i love the look of crafts but when it comes to doing them, it doesn’t always work out!
One of the influencers we’re loving at the minute @notsofarmerswife, who is over in Yorkshire shared a beautiful wreath she found over on eBay. If you’re looking for a new lifestyle and home account, we definitely recommend following her.

Just a Sunday going from one set of PJ’s to another set of PJ’s……. the slow cooker simmering away, binge watching Netflix and ermmmm…… well that’s about it 😂 . It’s been eventful 😂 . I am absolutely loving the Lidl special aisle lights I got yesterday to go under the counters ! They make the kitchen looks so cozy on a night…….. typical Lidl, went in for frozen peas, came out with lights and forgot the peas! 🤷🏼‍♀️🤦🏼‍♀️😂….. oh and I got a new rug too😂 it’s dangerous ! 😂. Hope you’ve all had a lovely Sunday ❤️ . . . . . #kitchendecor #kitcheninspo #kitchencabinets #kitchensofinstagram #kitchenfurniture #kitcheninterior #kitcheninspiration #myhomevibe #myhomestyle #myhomedecor #myhousebeautiful #myhouseidea #ukhomestyle #ukhomeinspo #ukhome #homeinterioruk #shakerkitchen #countrykitchen #instahome #autumnvibes #autumndecor #interior_and_living #homeandlifestyle #interiordecor

Cosy up using Lighting

Get in the mood for autumn with the right ambience. Shorter days and darker nights call for some special lighting. Check out our lighting section for our mains powered garlands or our battery operated string lights, both which look beautiful draped around the house, over a fireplace or in a doorway. Or make do with what you have and replace your bulbs with warmer lighting and lower wattage.

What have you done to cosy up your home for the colder weather?
