[HOME] Making The Most Of Fall

Finally Autumn is here and it feels right to talk about how I've embraced the colder evenings and spending more time inside. I think changing your surroundings to fit a season can make everything feel a little special. Instead of dreading the chilly weather and the trees becoming bare I have gotten the candles down ready to light now it gets dark so much earlier and my collection of blankets and cushions make the day bed a snuggle area ideal for cuddling up in and reading. 

My bedding was actually a gift from my Amazon Wishlist at Christmas. Catherine Lansfield with a tree print is perfect to evoke the cabin in the countryside atmosphere, paired with tartan cushions and a soft wool herringbone throw and I'm ready to settle in for the evening. I'm fond of Scottish tartan textiles, especially with woodland animals which seem to be a massive trend these fast few years, making it super easy to buy! 

I've added copper details to offset all the neutrals. The lampshade is a modern frame style with a vintage industrial bulb, I couldn't resist the cute geometrics.

I was emailed by Parachute Home about my idea of making a cozy fall and although I don't own any of their products I checked out their website and they sell some really beautiful interior products. Below are a few favourites of mine. 

The Striped Cashmere Throw has a real nautical feel with the stripes and choice of colours including blue, grey and natural. I can imagine this throw fitting perfectly over a snuggle chair or the end of my bed, layered with a chunky knit bed spread. The fireside candle sounds perfect to convey the warmth of a cozy night in by the fire without the smoky atmosphere. (Images below courtesy of
