It’s that time of year again; the kids are gone back to school, there’s a slight nip in the air, and the evenings just aren’t as long as they were last week. While it’s not quite the depths of winter just yet, it is time to start preparing your home for the change in season. But this doesn’t have to mean spending a pretty penny on expensive homewares in order to transform your home from summer chic to a state of complete Hygge.
In fact, there are a few small ways to transition your home without breaking the bank. First up, add some plush fabrics to your living space, in the form of rugs, cushions, blankets – anything soft you can get your hands on, really. Adding a rug to a room, be it a living or sitting room is a sure-fire way to soften your floor space. We absolutely adore this Calandre fringe rug. It’s super plush, and comes in a range of sizes, so you can be sure it’ll make a perfect addition to your room.
When it comes to blankets and cushions, don’t be afraid to layer. Different textures and colours create an inviting atmosphere, be it on your sofa, or your bed. We’re a huge fan of these gorgeous Catherine Lansfield cushions and blankets, in soft pastels. Perfect for those of you who aren’t ready to embrace dark greys and forest greens just yet.
Adding some soft lighting to a room is key to creating a cosy atmosphere. If you’re lucky enough to have an open fire, then feel free to go wild with some side table lamps, however if your main source of light in your room is the one overhead, then experiment with some tall corner lamps. To really turn up the cosy vibes, add some gorgeous scented candles.
Mirrors are also a fantastic way to brighten up a space. In fact, if used correctly, they can even make a room appear bigger. Mirrors make an excellent addition to hallways (because everyone needs that one last outfit check before running out the door!), but also, because hallways can often be difficult to light due to their often long orientation.
Last but not least is this uber comfortable, luxury lounger. Ideal for creating a reading nook in a room, you’ll melt away in this after a long hard day at the office.
