The change of seasons is always a special time as it allows us to get excited about a new wardrobe, new activities and a refresh for the home. What does Autumn mean for you and your home? For us it’s time to start adding warmth, to think about new colours, changing a few furniture items or restyling a room to suit the temperature shifts but most of all to have some fun bringing the cooler climate into the home.
Bring in Colours for the Cold
There are classics hues which are synonymous with colder weather. From browns to oranges, experts say you should try and replicate the colours which are occurring outside. The key is to infuse the entire house with relatable and powerful colours, such as purples and dark blues. Not only are they autumn shades, but they are dark and vivid. Plus, they are warm and add an element of cosiness. This was be easily achieve with a selection of throws, cushions or even some new wall art.
We love the freshness of white and modernity of silver however the rustic warmth of timber can transform the feel and warmth of your home. Shack is renown for it’s quality timber dining tables, buffets and book cases.
One way to shake off the blues of a summer farewell is, naturally, with food. Autumn brings with it a huge variety of seasonal goodness to invigorate your cooking. In March, look out for pumpkins, figs and apples, April is when we see mushrooms and chestnuts coming on board and May is a great time to enjoy Brussels sprouts and quinces.
Candle Lit Lighting
To set the mood as the coolers month start to approach, introduce some candles around the house. We love the collection of Ecoya candles from MyHouse and Glasshouse from Shack with so many unique scents to choose from.
