Autumn is one of the best times to decorate your home. It’s a season all about turning inwards – sheltering from the cold with friends and good food or great TV and a glass of wine – so it’s not surprising that our décor tastes centre around cosiness and comfort. Think layering up your bed with thick blankets and throws in varying textures (woollen knits, faux fur and soft fleece), piling cushions on the sofa and filling your home with candles and soft lighting.
For instant cosiness its all about making small, simple changes and updates. Look for pieces in warm colours, much like the turning leaves outside – they’ll make a space feel more luxurious. A new autumnal home fragrance can do wonders for your mood, as can fresh bedding or placing a thick rug on thin carpet.
With cosiness as our goal, we’ve scoured the shops for the best homeware pieces on the market. Scroll down for our picks – soon you’ll be glad that you don’t have any plans this weekend.
