With the change in season and the weather getting cooler outside (how chilly does it feel today?!) our family starts spending FAR more time indoors together. Autumn makes me want to be snuggled up in the warm, with a hot coffee and under a blanket.
A new season of weather also means new home styling – so this is a perfect excuse for me to update our home with new accessories that are inspired by the season of Autumn.
The drop in temperature outside suddenly makes me want a cosier living room with a cosy sofa and warm cushions and throws. Do you find that too? Faux fur and velvet being some of my favourites textures this season. Even though my home is quite minimalist and white, I try to keep my look interesting with a wide variety of colours, shapes, and sizes.
Candles are a super way of adding warmth, fragrance and soft lighting into a living area. I love lighting ours on cold evenings as it really makes our space feel snug and cosy.
We have been adding plenty of rugs into our new-build home over the last few months and they are starting to now take centre stage as Autumn arrives. Because, who wants to take their shoes off to feel the cold hard ground?! Laying down some plush rugs has meant that the house now feels warmer and cosier.
I still absolutely love my new thick-pile arctic white one in my study (shown below).
And our new grey stripe living room rug (below) was also recently featured on the Laura Ashley website too.
I recently painted the feature wall of our bedroom using Valspar paint for a project in association with Mumsnet. I tried out their colour-match process and selected a lovely cushion that we already owned in duck egg blue – to give the room an Autumnal and cosy feel. I took the twins along to our local B&Q and the Valspar expert matched us a paint up. Then it was home to paint!

So that’s how I have been transforming our family home to be cosy and stylish this Autumn! Are you planning to add any accessories or home decor into your home this season?
