As the summer slowly changes into autumn, it’s time to spend the cooler, darker evenings curled up on the sofa, enjoying home comforts and keeping seasonal chills at bay.
Autumn is a magical time; as Emily Bronte once wrote: ‘Every leaf speaks bliss to me, fluttering from the Autumn tree’. The colours of the season are rich and warm - from the reds and browns of falling leaves to the vibrant oranges and berry tones of autumnal produce.

Sofa: Zoe Chaise End in Rusty Gate
Your sofa is the centrepiece of your lounge, but it’s the finishing touches that make all the difference. Accessories in tones of copper or brass will add a warm, metallic glow whilst natural textures and beautiful wood will bring warmth to the room.
A beautiful floral display might seem like a summer treat, but you’ll find some beautiful faux flowers and foliage in autumnal shades. They’ll add a burst of colour and shape that will create a stylish focal point.
You’ve got your living room sorted - cosy and stylish. So sit back, relax and warm up with delicious, seasonally inspired food and drink. Risotto is the perfect Autumn supper – we love this pumpkin and roquefort version from Krumpli – the perfect balance of taste and texture. If you prefer something sweeter, then these mouth-watering cinnamon rolls with coffee glaze from Dirty Whisk are a delicious treat! For something just for the grown-ups, how about this Fig Bourbon Cider Smash from blogger Half Baked Harvest. Delicious!
