Top 5 Picks for A Cosy Autumn

September is here and the lazy days of the summer holidays are no longer with us, now is the time too start thinking about getting the house organised for a cosy autumn. The summer holidays for me consist of trying to find ways to keep my 9 year old entertained whilst juggling work which is always fun! One good thing about September and the kids being back in school is that you can start to think about your home again, I have got lots of things I want to change in the house since we moved in Spring - none of which have happened yet!

At this time of the year you can feel a change in the air already, I am already in the habit of lighting the log burner and thinking about getting the logs ordered. Hopefully that won't last and we will get a warm September but just in case we don't (and there is a good chance we won't) here are a few ideas to start getting your home ready for  autumn.

For me the best way to keep my house snug when the days get colder is lighting the log burner and these rattan baskets make the perfect log baskets.

Our Icelandic sheepskin rugs are perfect for in front of the fire , on the sofa, or next to the bed for keeping your toes toasty.

Velvet throws are perfect for wrapping up in on the sofa or topping up the duvet for extra warmth on colder nights.

Votives are a great way to add warmth and light and keep away the gloom of shorter days and longer nights. These lovely T light boxes are great for on the dining table or on the coffee table.
