To quote Game of Thrones “winter is coming” and while it may be blustery outside these home accessories are sure to warm up your home this season. We love this time of the year for Halloween, the cosy nights in and practically living in our dressing gowns that we missed this summer due to the heatwave. Anyway, with a new season comes a new colour palette and an excuse to do up our homes so that they look like Kate Winslet’s cottage from The Holiday, so think greens, reds, natural shades of cream, mink and chocolate browns.
Get seasonal with scented candles
You don’t need a fireplace to make your home look and feel intimate, especially when candles can add just the same effect for a fraction of the price. We love the new Elevation Collection from Yankee Candle that will add a modern and elegant touch to any home, with a square glass silhouette and a brushed metal platform lid that doubles as a candle platform. Our favourite from the collection has to be Frosted Fir for its woody crisp scent. Simply dot a few around the house to create a warm and inviting atmosphere (prices start from £7.99).
With the longer and colder nights approaching us who wouldn’t want to update their bedding at this time of year? Tartan and gingham checks are always popular at this time of year, as are plum and berry colours. We love this Crystal Amethyst Duvet Cover Set from JD Williams that will add a warm and festive look to any bedroom setting (prices start from £40-£65).Pile on the throws
Throws add interest, colour and texture to any room and we particularly like this Grey Faux Fur Throw from Debenhams (RRP £50) that will add a touch of luxury to your bedroom or living room. With a number of ways to style a throw you could simply drape or fold it over your bed or settee to create a hygge look. If you have pets or messy children avoid a snow white throw so that it doesn’t get ruined as quickly.
Are you making your home cosy for winter? If so, we’d love to see your snaps over on our Facebook and Twitter.
