Your bedding is a major feature in your home. The reasons being that firstly, people spend an average of 25 years of their life sleeping and secondly, the bed is usually the most noticeable item in a bedroom. Due to these reasons, bedding is important and you want to bring style, comfort and warmth to those long autumn/winter nights (and some lazy Sundays days too).

Changing up the decorations and ornaments within your home is a quick, easy and cheap way to transform a room from a place you can spend bright summer evenings, to a place you can relax in front of the TV with a mug of cocoa and a blanket. You don’t need to redecorate your whole house to get that autumn look and feel, just swap out or add these to your existing rooms and watch your home transform.

The smell of our homes is often overlooked in comparison to the visual aspects. However, smell can be linked to memories, feelings and emotions and can effectively give your home a totally different feel as opposed to just altering the look. For autumn, scents start to become less floral and fruity, in favour of woodier smells and the inclusion of berries and spices in anticipation for the winter. Using candles, diffusers and potpourri you can give your home a scent that will instantly remind your guests of the crisp, foggy walks and crushed fallen leaves of the autumn.
