One of the best rooms’ to give your home a facelift for Autumn is your living room. What could be better than a large log fire with a fiery red backdrop that creates a warm and inviting focal point?
But what about the rest of your home – what more could you be doing to give it that ‘cosy’ feel?
We’ve rounded together some great ways to make sure your home is ready for autumn:
Create a cosy reading nook
Autumn is the perfect time to pull out all your favourite books and lose yourself for hours. The best place to enjoy your books is a cosy reading nook. Pick a well-lit corner of your home, either by natural light or lamp and then pull a comfy armchair, then voila – you’ve got the perfect reading nook.
If your blankets and throws have been stored away since last winter, now is the time to put them back to use. As the cooler weather sets in, blankets, throws and quilts need to be in easy reach. Find throw with different colours and textures for a bit of visual variety – for a bolder statement try a bright throw that contrasts with your sofa.
Get the fireplace going
Throughout the year, your fireplace probably gets a bit dusty – but now is the time for its seasonal debut. A roaring fire often takes centre stage in the living room and is the focal point of the room – there’s nothing better than enjoying a bit of fireside relaxation during the cooler months.
