I don’t know about where you are, but where we live, Autumn is definitely on the way! There’s a chill in the air, the breeze is getting up and nights are drawing in. All these things make me want to make the house nice and cosy and snuggle down! This got me thinking about the essentials for getting cosy so here’s what I think should be on the checklist:
Candles (lots of them!)
There’s nothing like a flickering candle to make you feel warm and cosy! But don’t stop at one, use lots to give warmth and ambiance to your room.

You can’t beat these Wood Wick candles – not only do they smell divine and look amazing, but they also ‘crackle’ like a roaring open fire too. One of my favourites is this white tea and jasmine one:

What better way to keep warm and cosy on those chilly evenings than a nice woollen throw? Choose natural materials such as wool and cotton and throw in some faux fur to add a bit of texture. You can drape a throw on your sofas and armchairs or store them in a pretty basket.

Anyone who knows me will know how much of a cushion addict I am and Autumn is my favourite time of year for cushions! It’s the perfect time to introduce a range of different textures from chunky knits to faux furs. If you’re shopping for cushions, you are spoilt for choice at the moment but these are in my opinion the best ones around!
Bring the outside in
Wood accents and fresh greenery make any space feel fresh and alive when it’s dark and gloomy outside.
