Today’s guest post explores easy ways to embrace autumn in your home. Enjoy!
Autumn is one of the most amazing seasons of the year, and the perfect time to spruce up your home. With the nights drawing in earlier and it getting much colder outside, making your home a cosy sanctuary away from the cold weather is essential.
There are so many things you can do to brighten up your home, here are a few to get you feeling inspired.
Pile on the throws, rugs and cushions
One of the easiest ways to instantly make your home feel cosier and homelier for autumn is by adding throws, rugs and cushions. Being comfy and cosy is essential for those chilly autumn nights, and there’s nothing nicer than being able to snuggle up on the sofa with a throw. Go for colours which complement the rest of your décor, but don’t be afraid to mix it up when it comes to different textures.
Install a wood burner
If you’re looking to invest in a piece of homeware that’s perfect for autumn and will keep you feeling cosy all winter long, there’s nothing like the blaze of a wood burner stove in the living room for an authentic and relaxing way to keep warm. As well as being lovely to look at, a wood burner is a great way to keep your house warm without maxing out the central heating all winter long.
Set the mood with candles
Candles are another autumn essential for creating a light and bright atmosphere on those dull, grey days. Scented candles are amazing for making your home smell gorgeous too; go for something seasonally fragrant, like pumpkin spice or cinnamon. Lighting candles gives a lovely relaxing feel to your home and is the ideal way to keep the house looking bright.
Emphasise natural light
A key way to make your house brighter in the colder months is by making the most of the natural light you already have. These sash windows from Mighton let in loads of light and help to make your home feel much larger, as well as lighter and brighter.

Re-painting walls in lighter shades is a good way to make the most of natural light and keep your home looking bright. Borrowing from nature’s rich autumn palette of orange, red, and gold is also a fantastic way to create warmth and texture through soft furnishings and accessories.
