I love Autumn! Just as much as I like spring. There is something really special about them. Spring is all about new beginnings whilst Autumn is all about the end of a cycle and the impermanence of life. I know people usually tend to pick one or the other as favourite but I love them both but as Autumn has just begun I decided I would share with you why I love it and how my home changes in Autumn in a collaboration with Wayfair.
The crisp cold air makes you want to retreat inside but at the same time the beauty of nature draws you outside. The trees and leaves turn into beautiful work of art and its not hard to see why many people take inspiration from Mother Nature and bring those beautiful orange, red and gold colours indoors. But for me, Autumn isn’t about changing the colours inside. It is about keeping the same light colour palette to make the most of the ever decreasing light. It is about adding more textures in the shape of sheepskins and woollen throws. It is about adding lots of candles on the coffee table (not forgetting scented ones. It is about the obligatory pumpkin spiced tea or latte and a good book! Yes, Autumn is all about cozying in on the sofa with a big comfy sweater and not moving for hours!
So when Wayfair asked me to take part in their Autumn colour challenge, here is what I chose:
A wooden coffee table from Woood and it is absolutely beautifully distressed and aged to perfection. Also the top opens and you can store all your spare throws in there!
Of course I already owned lots of candle holders but this white one from House Doctor caught my eye and I have to say it is one of my favourite ever for its braided organic imperfect look.
Last but not least a new Ian Snow heavy knit throw and this one is huge and mixes perfectly with sheepskin and wool.
