Getting cosy for Autmn

Today felt like the first day of Autumn. The dreary sky, the chill in the air first thing in the morning and my sudden craving for all things carb-y and warming mean it's officially landed. So today here are my top picks for transitioning your home into Autumn mode as the dark nights and short days draw closer...

 

 
  1. There is no better way to get cosy than with a sheepskin. This double hide from John Lewis is 100% on my wish list. I intend to throw it over the end of my bed for a super lux touch which also keeps your toes warm
  2. Darker evenings mean its time to get your candle game on. This gold candle holder from Oliver Bonas would look lovely on the mantelpiece, dining table or next to you in the bath
  3. Cable knit socks are just the perfect finishing touch to your favourite lounge wear. These from Zara are perfection
  4. I am a bit obsessed with candles, can you tell? This scented trio from Betty Jackson at Debenhams not only smells divine, but the ceramic pots will be perfect tea light holders once the original wax has burnt away. They are also in the sale at the moment - what's not to love?
  5. A pair of slippers is an essential home item if you ask me - I tear myself through at least three pairs a year. These Moroccan leather versions from Bohemia Design are perfect right now; not too thick so you are going to get too warm, but cosy enough to take you through to winter
  6. A touch of texture exudes cosiness, and this woollen stool would be the perfect addition to any bedroom or lounge. It's from Zara so the price is most agreeable too at £49.99
  7. This rug from West Elm is the stuff of dreams. Made in India using 100% wool - it's a must have if you are trying to add a touch of artisanal bohemia to your home (and frankly who isn't)
  8. Finally, Autumn means it's time to whip up some hearty, wholesome one-pot suppers. From slow cooked casseroles, curries and soups your best friend will be this cast iron pot from House of Fraser. Its half price in the sale at the moment too
So there you have it. What pieces will you be adding to up the cosy ante?

  1. Don't waste your money on these pans. they work for a few weeks, but after that you'll be using more and more oil to keep food from sticking. Eventually even the oil won't help. One of the worst kitchen utensils I ever bought.
