Beautiful, sunny, crisp mornings, gorgeous, earthy colours; and the start of darker evenings that make you want to curl up inside are all hallmarks of autumn. As the winter months approach, you’ll spend more and more time in your home, so here are some tips to make your space cosier, seasonal and inviting. 


In addition to giving off a wonderful aroma, candles also provide a soft glow that is unmatched by other lighting sources. Aim for autumnal scents like blackberries or cinnamon when choosing. Why not increase the number of real and LED candles you have around the house to create a cosier atmosphere at night?

Soften Your Lights

As the nights grow longer, people start to prefer side lights and table lamps over the main ceiling light. Alternatively, why not try a few LED lights, perhaps around the base of a candle in a lantern, or choose a festive starlight that would look lovely on a mantelpiece or a window sill. 

Change up the Cushions and Throws

Simply switching out the cushion covers will make this incredibly simple to do if your living room decor is neutral. Warm reds, oranges, and plum hues can be used sparingly to create an autumnal atmosphere. Naturally, you can store them again to be used again the following year once you’ve had enough of them. Make use of thicker throws, chunky knits, and anything fluffy to mix up the textures.

Autumnal Flowers / Berries / Leaves

Seasonal flowers and berries are a great way to bring the outside in and inject some colour into your living space. Autumn berries such as cranberries and blueberries not only look stunning in a vase, but they also add a pop of colour to autumnal décor. And what could be more festive than a vase full of holly berries during the holiday season? Whether you choose to go with traditional floral arrangements or something more creative, seasonal flowers and berries are a great way to liven up any space.

Invest in double glazing

Double-glazed windows and doors stop heat from escaping your home, saving you money on your energy bills. In addition, double-glazed windows also help to muffle noise from outside, making your home more peaceful and serene.
