Seasonal Switch Up

Embrace and enjoy autumn vibes with simple, cosy room updates, says editor Lynn Stewart.

This gorgeous green Henry brushed cotton bed linen creates a wonderfully cosy vibe to get you through chilly nights. Responsibly sourced 100% cotton is always comforting, and this deep, dark shade adds to that sense of comfort. Layer up with warming throws for a super-luxe feel and hunker down to hibernate.

With autumn well and truly here, nobody needs an excuse to sit down and warm up with a quick cuppa. We love the look and feel of this glazed porcelain teapot with its tactile bamboo handle – perfect for a fireside brew after a bracing walk. All you need is a good book and your biscuit of choice.

Not only does this tall log and kindling holder tick all the style boxes, we love the practicality of separate spaces for logs and kindling. Made from black iron, the frame has a handy shelf and high sides to keep the firewood secure. The perfect cold-weather partner for open fires and woodburners.

We’ve said it before, but great lighting will always elevate a space. This striking glass chandelier feels particularly apt for this time of year with its glorious amber tones. Comprising 66 hand-made, oblong-shaped glass pieces attached to three tiered brass arms which create a lovely dappled effect, this is a statement piece made to turn heads.

The emerald green of this luxurious faux fur cushion adds a shot of colour and comfort to autumn interiors. With a velvet back, this soft, fluffy cushion makes the perfect cold-weather accessory for beds, sofas, and chairs. Two or three would look particularly effective on a wooden bench seat, either in a conservatory or dining kitchen, to add warmth, colour and texture.

You know we love our candles all year round, but autumn is the time to really up the cosy factor, and what says ‘cosy’ more than candlelight? These lovely glass candlestick holders are available in a range of colours – mix and match for an informal look, or stick to the same colour for a more cohesive feel. We love the warmth of the orange holder for autumn nights – and days!
