“Delicious autumn! My very soul is wedded to it, and if I were a bird I would fly about the earth seeking the successive autumns.” – George Eliot
Seems like Autumn has started to arrive this week with southerly winds and rain blowing up the country. It is a little sad that summer maybe on the run, but by keeping things a little warmer on the inside you will feel nurtured and cocooned. Bring in a few accessories and welcome being a little more snug and happy about the cooler weather approaching. A bowl of gourds/pumpkins one way to comment that autumn is here, along with some beautifully coloured autumn leaves – all the colour inspiration you need.
Autumn/harvest colours are warm – reds, burgundies,oranges, rusts and yellows. Rarely do you see the fresh blues and greens of summer in Autumn. Add spicy touches of colours to your space with throws, pillows and natural accessories.
Re-staging the neutral backdrop you may have in the room with tactile delights helps you to snuggle in. Layer & layer again wool throws, lushly textured pillows, a basket of pine cones, fire wood and a plush area rug.
Oh and don’t forget the candles and fireside lamps to help cosy things up even more. Lamps and candles add another layer of contrast and depth to a room’s lighting scheme and help to create a warm friendly ambience to cuddle down in. Only thing missing could be the bottle of warm coloured Pinot Noir?!
